Because i was so busy i forget to take pictures, i spend around 6 hours today on the setup and case.


Here some random pics, less text more pics biggrin.gif

























Thats it for this update biggrin.gif!


Main point was i could re-use 3 pieces of solid tubing, glady saved me 10 euro on a new 2 meter acrylic pipe!


Budget modding is always fun to do, and see what u can realy achieve with less expensive things

Case: 110 euro
Alu sheet / paracord: 25 euro
Splitted order with a pal HighFlow.nl: 60 euro 20 Euro my costs

Time to explain how to make acrylic tubing * my english is not THAT good!!!!

First of al, search and use object for the bends, i prefer steel, it keeps the heat stuck, and doesnt cool down your acrylic pipe that quick.



Always make the tube longer than u need!, the bends can not come out how u want sometimes (weakspots)

I use a Power suply 7mm thick cord (EU)



I prefer a hairdryer, because u cannot overheat the tube and it wont make it to warm so you pull the tube flat.



If the tube is hot enough, u cant start bending the pipe, dont pull to hard otherwise u get a flat spot at the end of the pipe.





If u are at the point that your tubing is bend and lined up with the fittings u can cut it to size





I used a cheapo rotary tool and a dremel atachment (sanding barrel P120)



My working situation xD!

Tape it 7/8mm of the edge, so you know you dont get an ugly spot above your fitting



only sand the tube till its frosted! dont use pressure, dont create flatspots, the pipe is sold as 12mm but the exact size is 12.3/12.7! so yes just a little touch all around is enough! finish it up with sandpaper Grid P400 so the rubber ring wil fit nicely!



Test the fitting




Quote:
*tips

1. Use always the same test fitting! Orings can and will be damaged while testing!

2. If there is to much tension in your object between for example GPU-CPU bend, leave it in place, Heat it up til you see that the tension will be away *you wil probaly feel or see gpu moving

3. always use the same bending object in a build, its not that nice to see different bends in a casemod( or the situation is different)

4. Cool the tube after bending with a bucket of cold water

5. Only use C47 of bitspower!

6. This "guide" works only the best with 12mmODx8mmID Acrylic tube, I know there is also 1/2mm thick pipe but u will get flat spots or kinks in the inner bend.

7. Cut the tube gently! u dont want to trow away a perfect bended tube! because of a crack.

Thats it for this little guide smile.gif

Further on with this update!

ready to be cleaned and Filled up biggrin.gif!



Waterrr


Dirty loop


After draining the loop, i put fresh and new water in it, Then started to play with Mayhems red Dye!

1 drop


2 drops


3 drops


4 drops

Wooo Hooo

Looking very nice there thumb.gifthumb.gif


Over here, I haven't seen metric tubing, so 1/2" is the closest we have, which is 12.7mm.

It's also available in 3/8" inside diameter, which is about 9.5mm, or 1/16" larger than 8mm ID tube.

I'm looking at going about the fitting issue from the opposite end here for my build though . . .

Rather than try to reduce the diameter of the tube, I'm going to bore the fittings out another few thousandths of an inch to fit standard 1/2" tubing properly.

The secondary benefit should be that it will compress the o-rings in the fitting just a tiny bit more, giving a "better grip" on the tubing.

Is the tubing that you're using actually acrylic, or is it possibly PETG?

Seeing that it forms with a hair dryer makes me wonder, since PETG is very bendable, and at lower temps than acrylic.

I got a bunch in with my last McMaster order, but haven't had a chance to play with it yet.

And you know I'm a sucker for red, lol . .

I would agree that PETG is probably better for this application because it is less prone to cracking and is much easier to machine, but you did an excellent job on the tubing. thumb.gif

Amazing guide Kenny! thumb.gif

How are your temps? Are you going to overclock this setup?

So you're not getting any flat spots at all?

I am still undecided on the thickness of the tubing I will use. Either I go only straight pieces and less thick wall or the one you have used and also do bends.

Temps are slightly higher then roomtemp, Why would i overclock? i dont give a S^$&*(#@^$T about that tongue.gif

100% flatspot less biggrin.gif!

The thickness is also the material u work with! if the pipe is to thin u wil get indeed flat spots, because there is no material to move smile.gif
