Have you considered clear tubing with some red dye in it (not the pastel stuff, just plain red dye). I think that might look really really good.

There is enough space to mount an LED strip or any other lighting option you choose.

Is that white LEDs? I have 2 red LED sticks in my current build that would easily light the Enthoo, but I sort of want to use UV to highlight the tubing -- in which case clear tubing + dark red uv dye would definitely be the way to go. I just don't know if 2 or 3 uv cathodes will have much effect in all that space (and 'uv' LEDs aren't actually uv at all).

I've always hated white lighting in pc cases, but maybe the Enthoo is the case that's well designed enough that plain white lighting actually accentuates the design? I'll give that some consideration.

This ^^

I figured I would get 1 build under my belt and then have a go at rigid tubing
After I've spend about £80 on fittings :-|
Its such a shame That you need new fittings to with the rigid tubing though
I've already thought out in my head that some of the routing would be better suited with rigid, but hey ho!

I've gone with solid white tubing, as I think it will work with the phanteks fans really well!

Those are RGB LEDs set to white. You should not have any issues putting at least 3 cathodes, if not 4. And I agree UV Leds are not the same.

Ladies and Gentlemen .... we have a winner !

The irony never ends though .....Ordered a Mouse and 64 GB Mushkin Venture Pro USB stick to do the UFEI Windows install .... Box arrived this morning and fogured both inside...... but nooooooo .... USB won't get here till November 2nd. Must be a weight thing.

Well components mostly the usual suspects ..... Was either the Seasonic X-1250 or the Corsair AX and for $100 less, I'll take the Seasonic.....plus had $15 rebate and $25 newegg coupon deal smile.gif

BTW, if anyone's wondering about the tools in the background, some of those (w/ asterisk) arrived this week too.

Calipers* - 146 - Digital Fractional Caliper .... very nice, good deal
Http://www.generaltools.com/146--Digital-Fractional-Calipers_p_1228.html

Wire Strippers* - Based upon Unicron's advice, grabbed this.... Irwin 'vice-grip' self adjusting wire stripper. Have 3 more, haven't decided which ones I like best.
www.amazon.com/Irwin-Industrial-Tools-2078300-Self-Adjusting/dp/B000OQ21CA/

Ruler / Gauge* - MNPCTech PC Modder Ruler & Gauge - Need to get some hand oils and dirt in the grooves on this so hopefully this old man can read it.

Extra Hands* - Was using Xacto X75170 X-tra Hands with Magnifier - total crap

..... this arrived today .....waaaayyyyyy better, the gooseneck on light could be a lil stiffer .... gets a little limp in certain positions (no viagra jokes). But this one ia HUGE improvement over the ones I had before
http://www.amazon.com/Helping-Hand-Magnifier-Solder-Holder/dp/B00B88B67E/ref=pd_sbs_t_20

The "unusual suspects" in the pic that may not be recognized ....

Telescoping Mirror Thingie - Lisle 32050 Telescoping Mirror
Telescoping Magnet Thingie - Ullman HT-3 Telescoping Hi-Tech Magnetic Pick-Up Tool

Well it's almost 6 pm and the mini-fridge has not yet arrived at NY depot as yet frown.gif

Here is another link for 1/2" tubing. Metric tubing is gonna be little difficult to find in the US. That you might be better just getting E22, or look on amazon or ebay. But please google to make sure that there is no one available with 12mm tubing, and cheap price

UPS is trolling me... Would have expected it by now.

Up and running. Will take more pictures later. Also adding lights later.




When the 780 lightning block is released from EK, that will be going in as well as I may add a single 120mm rad to the bottom if it fits with the two 140's... Or move my rx240 from the side to the bottom. Not sure yet. Either way, this case is huge. I know everyone says that, but it really is massive. Heavy too, almost too big. Don't know why I didn't expect that but oh well, I love it.

Edit again: it appears my xspc Bay results is leaking. Not too happy about it but it seems riddled with problems. Will likely try to fit my tank results in rather than using the dual bay.

One complaint, one of the rubber grommets, some rubber flaps just came right off when I was running the tubing. I wasn't rough with them, they just came right off. Not a huge deal.

Nicely done mate, and great speed. Technically if you add the GPU to the loop, you don't need more cooling power. What you have is enough.

The build looks good mate. The rubber grommets can be tricky sometimes.

The PSU placement, make cable management fun and easy.

True, but I want to use it as I have it and there may be room for it (120mm rad). Also considering purchasing a 480mm rad, likely any of the xspc's as I am strapped for cash.
