What kind of fittings can you use?
how much pipe you need for basic cpu + gpu loop?
How do you drain the loop?

I haven't done it yet so take my advise with a grain of salt.

I will be using 10mm OD copper pipes with 1mm wall bought from CopperTubingSales.com . They don't list the metric pipes on their site so you have to call/email them. I dealt with Aaron, ask him to cut your pipes in 4ft lenghts to save on shipping.

Here are the push-fit fittings I plan on using.

You would require just about the same amount of tubing as a plastic loop. But you might want to order more for practice trial bends.

To drain, I will be using the drain port on my Alphacool UT60 radiator. I'm sure there are other ways to skin that cat.

You can get any fitting in any color they have. Get the part number and change the color part to the color you want. So for instance I ordered a bunch of just brass fittings, y connectors, t bocks, etc and just emailed them the part number, how many pieces and don't forget to change out the color for the color you want. You will see what I'm talking about as all their part numbers follow an easy pattern. They might take up to 2 weeks to answer you, but once they do it goes quick.

Hope that helps.

Thanks, Pavo. I received a quote from them in the color I wanted. Quoting me about $7.50 per fitting which is kinda high, but at least they can do it thumb.gif

Alright thanks! Me and my friend are gonna build a new pc for him and we are gonna do WC with piping inside some really sweet case wink.gif Can't wait to get my hands working on that!

Correct and good advice

I use around 3 Meters of tube for a build but I do end up with overstock. Mainly as the offcuts are never as long as I need them.
You do use slightly more than normal tube as you tend to do 90s and straight runs rather than point to point but nothing to worry about.

I know I said I'm ditching this idea but it's stuck on my mind and I keep looking for the cheapest route in case it does become affordable for me some day.

I need an opinion of something. I've already asked a member via pm but I thought I'd get some more input here.

If I get these push fittings from ebay...

Rather than cutting the thread, use these...
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_393_622&products_id=25603

The threads on the fittings are 5mm to uncompressed o-ring, the spacers are 3mm.

What do you think and why? It comes out to under $5 a fitting and allows me to buy our cheaper imperial sized tubing. I've emailed PPC's last week about ETA on the Phobya fittings and they say they don't have one. And on ordering the 10mm fittings from Aquatuning.us... I just can't seem to find $75 worth of stuff to order.

If you want, I can combine my order with yours to bring it up to over 75$.
We just need to come up with a way of doing this why neither of us ripping off the other guy.
Also keep in mind that I live in Canada.

I ordered 10 meters of 10mm pipes cut in 8 pieces of 4ft lenghts. So I will most likely have too much of it.
Perhaps you could order my fittings and we swap the fittings for the pipes you need?

I paid 105$ for my order including shipping. UPS will likely extort an other 30$ of fake brokerage fees out of me when they deliver it.

So it should come out to a little under 17$ for each 4 ft lenght of pipe.

Edit: also, I recon I have no trader rating so you have no way of knowing how honest I am, or not.

I have used those spacers in my SR2,They work ok but are as ugly as sin...
You can just take a file to the fitting instead of sawing,a corse file will rip thru 2mm in no time.

Great idea and I'd do it, but it won't be any time soon. I'm just thinking ahead really.

Oh? I had figured it had to be cut or lathed.

No a file works wonders...I used a lathe because I have access to one and its cleaner.
