Yeh ive been there. The tube when you stretch it gets smaller. Think I added like 6-7 mm per cut and work fast.

Yep yep. It was specifically the tubes that didn't move much past the barb in the first place that ended up cooling and getting stuck. One on the CPU went well, and all of the ones on the rads and reservoirs/pumps. I wasn't about to wait another week to get more tubing though, far too inpatient for that. tongue.gif



First time working with the Bitspower barbs too. Holy hell are they hard to get the tubing on. I have zero worries about leaks though.

I love my new 800D!

It was my first build and as far as the build went. Too easy and lots of room.

Check my rig out!

Guys, is the Switch a good quality case? I am making decisions based off of the CC Awards. I like the way it looks, but is it too loud or anything?
Thanks.

Loud? That depends on the fans that you use...
It's a great case. Stuff may look cheap ,but I've got to test the case before and it's really nice. I'll be picking one up in the summer.

Thanks.

In the end, I purchased the NZXT Switch 810 for two reasons:

1 - It's cheaper. R1 699 vs R2 500 (ZAR) is a big difference.

2 - I don't know when I'll be watercooling. The Switch 810 has more than enough space for a custom loop. At the moment I'm running my signature rig on air and I've got tons of space to play around with. The 800D would have been too big for my needs.

I was able to have a look at the Switch 810 and the 800D in person before my decision was made and it was purely on size and money. The 800D is a fantastic looking case and the craftsmanship is superb. I can say the same for the Switch 810 and I don't regret my decision at all.
