edit: nevermind, just saw the link you posted. great guide! i've been looking for something like this
Mine is just some cheapo PET sleeving from Ebay. It's a 14mm sleeve but it's close enough.
I'm not big on the worm clamps for pc cooling. They work great but aren't fancy and that defeats the purpose on the sleeving. Those latching clamps look cool but the one you linked is 2x too big for most pc hoses.

Yes I did. And it works awesomely. My 5870 stays nice and frosty bellow 40C even when I flog it with 1.35v
Very nice. I know people have done it before but I haven't seen a nice simply laid out tut in it's own thread yet. If you don't mind I'll link you in my tut with the compression fittings.

What sleeving do you recommend for this? I have been looking and looking, but so far all I can find with a color other than black is the "KOBRA HD" from FrozenCPU.... I'd really like something that would match either MDPC-X or Paracord...
You could check Ebay. I found mine by searching for "PET sleeving" If you add the diameter you are looking for it will help narrow the search. Try both metric and SAE. If you want something like paracord you could try looking for rope.

Thanks for the complement. Glad I could persuade you otherwise.
