The price would definitely be the major diff
plus the work.. no setup is the same, and you would have to spend hours bending the pipes into shape.
but it looks darn cool! and I guess it would have a tiny bit better flow if done right..
The noise wouldn't be a factor since none of the two systems will make any noise what so ever.
Maintenance, on the other hand..
if you DO get goo, gunk, particles and what have we? in the system, it would be MUCH easier/cheaper to replace the "normal" tubes.
but then again, I guess you could just flush and reuse the pipes? !
I havent owned that type of plumbing in my rig.. but it looks awesome!
Just noticed that "DigitalStormOnline" sells complete solutions.. thats much less work ^^
if price is the same, I would go with the copper plated! just be sure to use some good coolant / adjective / silver kill coil (if it dosnt come with it)Edited by GaMbi2004 - 8/11/13 at 7:28am
