i realized that you don't put a wc system to look at it but to cool down your computer , if you spend all your time doing/redoing your loop , the wc loop loose all it sens and the expensive hardware is not really used.
that's why i went with the maximum stuff in my loop outside the case , rad res pump outside , only the bare minimum inside with 2 quick release and after i dont need to drain 2,5 liter of fluid to swap a god damn component. it just a 5-15 min job and then a quick leak test. I only have 6 connection inside and only 2 of them could dmg something if leaking , this is a point too , less risk for my expensive hardware, less time spent leak testing more usefull time on the computer.
i can totally see these being cool for a show case but irl it s soo unpractical ,it 's totally the opposite mindset , spent hours on your computer and little using it ,.....
For someone that hasnt actually hardlined a rig,where are you getting all this?
Who is the "They" that you mention? "They" didnt comeup with this,we did....6 months ago there was no tooling or involvement from manufacturers.
This is purely community driven,its only now that manufacturers are coming on board.
More importantly,Why do you come here just to troll? This isnt the first time you have appeared in this thread just to comment negatively.....

I'll be sticking w/ acrylic on every machine for here on out. No plasicizier. Possiblity for MUCH cleaner lines. Coloured coolants look 5x better in acrylic. Plus it is generally fun if you don't get stressed out easily.
All of this,greatness takes time and effort.
