Looks fine to me, I can get a little sort of flat spot on the outside of the bend with the E22 tubing and the E22 bending cord (12/10).
I tried a 180 bend freehand yesterday and it worked out pretty good. I have to come off the cpu block and then a short distance down to a flow meter on the light panel, so I thought I'd come out and 180 back and down to a rotary on the meter. Sounds complicated but I tried other multiple bends and it didn't work, just not enough room.
Also hoping my 2xE22 12mm push fits will be here today, I decided to use them where my 2 Aquaero water blocks connect to each other so I won't have to use any force against the pcb's. But since the opening at the bottom of the fittings is supposed to be 8mm, I'm hoping to set them up in a vice at my drill press and bore them out as I did with the mettleair fittings a while back. The mettleair fittings also had a torx fitting made into the bottom and it was a pretty small opening until I bored them out to just under 3/8".
