Thanks. There's still a lot that needs to be done.

Tubing, sleeve, and fans all match pretty well. All I did was take a piece of sleeve with me to the hardware store and tried to match it as best I could. Turns out the house brand "safety orange" was the best match. It being UV Reactive was just an added bonus lol

I just bought two Bitspower Pass Through/Bulkhead/Fillport fittings on eBay. Trying to decide where and how to incorporate them. I was thinking of having one in the midplate on the tube going from rad to GPU then another one also in the midplate going from res to pump. Any thoughts or ideas?

I had wanted to add that to my build but the mid-plate is sandwiched between two pieces of plexi to help reinforce it.

Should work fine, only thing you'll need more fittings to connect the pass through(s). I just bored out a large hole (1.25") and passed my tubes and wires through that.

Fittings aren't a problem. I probably have close to a dozen extra fittings laying around from changing my loop around a few different times. I've also been looking at the new Swiftech QDC's. Depending on the price I might pick up a set to use for draining. Work hasn't slowed down at all and it's going to continue getting more and more busy until mid July so progress is basically at a stand still. I'm trying to get a bunch of the smaller things done once I get some free time I can bust out the bigger tasks

I just bought a Black Ice GTX 480 for a really nice price on the marketplace. I can now get the final tubing layout designed and decide if I need to order any more fittings or addapters. Have two radiator will hopefully give me the motivation to finish the rest of the side panels and get rid of that birds nest under the motherboard.

It's actually a little bit shorter and thinner than my current Thermochill PA120.4. Now I need to make the custom fan shroud for the Black Ice rad like I did with the TC. It should be arriving some point this week. I will be sure to post pics once it does
