Very nice setup sir.
Thanks a lot PCModderMike, ive been wanting to do a build like this for over a decade but life got in the way. I wanted a Vapochill since the day I saw one and vowed to get something similar one day, that day has finally come

Just one question. I snagged the last LD V8 case from FrozenCPU (got em to drop the price a little!) and was starting on my build so I'm looking at other builds for ideas/things to try. Where did you get that tubing? Or did you do it yourself?
Thanks bud, tubing is just normal 1/2 ID 3/4 OD white uncle fester UV blue tubing with a sleeve put over the top. The compression ring holds the sleeve to the tube, it was easy enough to get the sleeve around because its braided and can go quite large if pushed together. Once I cut the sleeve to length (cut it to length while stretching it) placed the tubing through the sleeve then had to use my nail to stuff the compression fitting ring around the sleeved tubing. It was a tight fit but more then doable. Once the ring was on I had to push the sleeving tight so it didn't expand and look ugly.
I think the sleeved tubing gives the watercooling aspect a more professional look then clear tubing with dye or coloured tubing. Looks more industrial/engine-like and matched the sleeving over the phase neck quite well - albeit my w/c sleeving doesn't have the white lines through it, which is why I opted for white tubing underneath.
