One of the best 800D builds I have ever seen. +1 for keeping a really good color scheme!

Thanks for the compliment.

The original planned color scheme was Black and Red for the wires.

But since I am changing my PSU from Corsair HX1050 to Seasonic X1250. I changed the color scheme for the wires to go with ROG theme.

I am actually planning to redo all the color scheme for the rig to Black, Grey and Silver.

Planning to tryout paracords sleeving but the issue is, in Singapore paracords are very rare and will have to import in from US.

Colors planned to used are Black, Silver Grey, and Olive Green.

haha, I have to agree that I had used tons of fittings in this rig.

But in total I actually had used only around 28 - 32 compression fittings which leaves me around 12 more as spares. Last count, I had more than 170 fittings in my arsenal which I had utilized around 110 - 130 of them in this built.

Wanted to add in additional 680 to do Triple SLI and additional 360 Rad but scrape the idea when news of my wifey got pregnant held all plans back. Baby comes first biggrin.gif

Anyway, reason why I used so many fittings is because I love the clean, straight look of the overall design. Not really a fan of tubings looping around the rig when I have a total of 7 different blocks in this tiny casing (800D is huge, but when u do custom watercooling with so many stuff in there its tiny LOL)

To be honest, this is my first ever attempt in custom water cooling. I did a lot of planning such as the functions of different fittings (D Plugs, QDC, Pressure valves). 6 months ago, I dont even know what are ID, OD or even what are the basic setup should consist of.

!! Thats an awful lot of fittings - ive noticed you've got quick release fittings aswell, and I agree with you that it does make the overall appearance of the rig a lot better. I'm still not sure which way to go in terms of fittings - is it better to use compression fittings or barbs with a tube clip over it? I've heard that compression fittings can easily be wriggled free (is that a myth?) Ii've never watercooled before so i'm a little unsure on what size compression fittings to get. The radiator and blocks have G1/4" threads and it comes with 1/2" ID barbs - are compression fittings an alternative to the barb or do you still need the barb for the compression fittings? And also if I wanted 1/2" ID and 3/4" OD pipes, what size compression fittings would I have to use? Sorry for all the nooby questions but I'd thought i'd ask an expert biggrin.gif

Okie, just to clear it up for you. Barbs are barbs, compression fittings are compression fittings. Compression fittings itself are barbs but with additional screw to tighten the tubing to the barb.

Yes some compression fittings will causes the tubing to wriggle free such as monsoon compression fittings. I had issues with the them with my XSPC, Musterklear, and Tygon tubings. But my bitspower compression fittings had no issues with the tubings at all, and bitspower's compression fitting's barbs teeth seems to be more sharp which causes more grip to the tubing after tightening.

QDC are great and I have a total of 3 sets which I had used 2 sets in my current loop.

Sizes of compression fittings depend on what size of tubing you are getting. Personally my rig, I am using 3/8 ID 5/8 OD which can bend easily and more flexible.
