So a few weeks ago I decided to add cable ties to help clean up the cable management. Unbeknownst to me, when I finished, the power pin to my water cooling pump had come unplugged, so my CPU scorched up some heat while my girlfriend was playing Skyrim.

The tubes began melting, and there was a significant bend in one of tubes, so I am upgrading to thicker tubing as well as using better fittings to help avoid needing to bend the tubes. Also adding quick disconnects so it's easier to change out the water.

Here's a little overview of the problem.

I've purchased 5/8 OD and 3/8 ID tubing with monsoon fittings. Using white tubing and blue fittings, with white angular fittings. I'll post more as I receive the components tomorrow. I never finished my log 2 years ago when I originally built it, so I guess I better do it this time!
