I will be busting out the heat gun and bending it. I bought a lot to say the least,

Where did you buy it from? A proper acrylic place or PPCS? I wouldn't mind picking up some in bulk and cutting some lengths, testing the fittings, etc. Depending on price of course.

Cool, I love those guys too. Excellent to deal with. I didn't realize they sold hard tube in lengths that long. Hmmm, I might have to put an order in.

BTW are you getting the exact tubes you linked? I asked because the inner diameter of the stuff you linked is 8mm, and the fittings are 10mm. smile.gif

The fittings are for use with 10mm OD. The ID of the fitting is 10mm. Now you have me second guessing myself!

LOL! Don't do that man! I haven't slept in 4 days, so I could be totally misreading it. I just thought that sounded like a small tube, even smaller than my current 3/8 5/8 tube, so that got me curious. I was under the impression that other hard tube fittings (IE Bitspower crystal link / C47 fittings) fit OVER the tube, so outer diameter was what you had to look for. Then I saw your Phobya fittings and mistakenly thought they went INSIDE the tube. Damn I need sleep in the worst way!!

Well then you are doing pretty well because I would be making worse mistakes than that after one day without sleep.

I'm not ballsy enough for hard tubing yet, and copper looks too ugly for me. smile.gif Acrylic tubing is where it's at IMO for looks. Can you get that stuff colored / UV reactive / etc? All I've seen is clear.

There really aren't any issues about plasticizer aside from looks. It doesn't cause any issues until it flakes off from the tubing and can potentially clog a block but unless you play with your tubes a lot or reuse old tubing that shouldn't really be an issue at all.

Whoa Bart You are thinking of using hard Acrylic tubing no wonder you can't sleep. I know if I was trying to figure this out I would not be able to sleep either. But I have see in these in different colors at professional stores. Below is a example of the colors they had nothing fun.. Have you decided how you are going to do your case yet?

Frosted 0918-8
White 0149-5
Dark Blue 6198-0
Medium Blue 6194-5
Glass Green 5170-8
Light Grey 1239-7
Black 1235-0

Scott, I have NO idea. But just to stop thinking about this too much (and risk FIVE days without sleep), I'm just going to order the fat bastard and be done with it. biggrin.gif Hard tubing is a possibility, but that's just a thought in the back of my mind right now, nothing concrete. Once I get the case in, and actually have it in front of me, I'll know what will fit and what won't. You can only look at so many pictures, and I need to see pics from very weird angles that NO ONE would ever photograph to answer my questions. smile.gif
