My only concern is this:
Where are you going to find a case that can fit a 10 meter long tube? biggrin.gif

One of the BIG Caselabs... with a LOT of pedestals?

Are there any technical reasons why I should not use some 10mm tube as a "sleeve" for 6-pin and 8-pin power leads to the GPU rather than using mesh sleeving?

If I was going to take off the connector to re-sleeve the lead anyway, it might lake a nice feature if the GPU power leads came up inside copper from the lower compartment of the S8 case next to the GPU and did a nice 180 at the top to present the connectors to the GPU.

That's actually a neet idea. I just might do that on some of my cables. thumb.gif

You might even be able to route fan cables and so on inside 8 mil microbore too. No fittings needed of course, just a bender and some way of anchoring to the case at strategic points. A little heatshrink as the cables emerge from the tube perhaps?

It might be suitable for a mainly copper themed build (such a shame the copper aquatube is discontinued).

Bending defects - help needed.

I have received my Ridgid 410M today and am getting badly flattened outsides and slight ripples on the inside of my bends and I suspect I need advising on the correct use of the bender. The tube I am using is 10mm OD 0.6mm wall semi-hard straight.

I thought at first the tube was dragging so put a single thickness of masking tape round the start of the bend to mark my zero point and flipped up the clamp. With both 0 marks lined up, I then made a steady 90 deg bend. The flattening began almost immediately and the ripple on the inner radius was confined to the last half of the bend.

If there is anything I need to check on the tool or tube, I do have a set of calipers.

I use the same bender on 10mm OD, but 1mm walls.
I experienced the flattening on the outside of the bend, but not the inside wrinkles.
However, based on B Neg's advise, I annealed the pipes before bending and the problem is solved.

You'll have to get a propane torch and heat up the part you want to bend. Heat it up as much as possible. And let it cool down slowly at room temperature.
That should soften up your pipe.
But your walls are thinner than mine, so the problem should be more pronounced with.yours.
You might have to anneal it twice before bending
And don't worry about the discoloration. A quick sanding will take care of that later on.
