Ugh.... can't you paint the hot dogs green? The red really clashes. rolleyes.gif

Looking good, and quite the following you've amassed! There are build logs I check everyday, and then there's this log, which I find myself checking multiple times through the day, just to see if there's an update. You inspired me to throw some acrylic tubing in my build too, so thanks for that! Keep up the good work! thumb.gif

Thanks for the kind words Khepira.

Update: Both loops are almost finished, all that's left (loop-wise) is to connect the front rad to the top rad - which has proven to be a pain thus far. Hopefully I'll have that knocked out soon and can maybe fill the loop tonight or tomorrow morning. I cant stress enough how much work it was getting a lot of these components connected with the acrylic and making it straight, perfect etc... Some of the tubes I would measure, cut, finish and fit only to find I need to make it longer or shorter. The reason it's so tough is that the connections need to be durable, if they are fragile to the touch then they are worthless. Everything you see so far is rock solid.






Here's a shot of my bitspower work mess and fitting selection (which is now dwindling). I use all of those crystal links to figure out tube sizing, I link up several at a time in different configurations to deduce length and whether or not the path will work.

Seeing everything straight is just really appealing to my eyes. I don't think this build would have worked, both in terms of durability and looks without the generous use of fittings and the acrylic tubes. BRING ON THE COOLANT
post #438 of 1404
Looking great and i've been following this thread since day one.. I'm actually in the middle of getting all my new rads and what not, I'm just curious to see how James connected everything (order wise)

I'm only going to use 1x 480 EK rad on the bottom and another 480 EK rad on the top of the 900D to cool the mobo/cpu/2 or maybe 3 GPU's.. So it's a little confusing to think how i would order everything and if i need just the 1 res or do i need 2..

That's the only thing keeping me from doing acrylic or copper on my next build. I don't know if I have the patience for that or not.... ohno-smiley.gif

Loop is completely done now. Going up to that top rad was tough, how I ended up doing it is insane, I think it looks great.
