For my holes I used a hole drill, which actually turned out pretty clean, but yeah a step drill might work better and probably cleaner

Tubing runs.

Alright fellas, I need some input!

looking at tubing runs so I can figure out what fittings im going to need to purchase. So far I have come up with two drafts





Both have their drawbacks. Option 1 will require more fittings and runs going through the midplate and Option 2 will have less performance or though with 2 480s it will likely be negligible.

Also im undecided on what pump to get. Im liking the look of the Aquacomputer Aquastream for its ability to act also as a fan controller. Or my other choices are a D5 with EK top and new body kit, or do I go DDC with EK top and heatsink to save on space?

Im also unsure on what fitting colour to use, im undecided between Nickel/Silver or Black .

Let me know what you guys think biggrin.gif

Option 1 for me. MCP-35X w/ EK heatsink and EK top, and black fittings! thumb.gif

Having a hard time visualizing some of the runs in your options and am a bit confused by the run going into the gfx on option 1 and where it comes from.
Not to much of a pump know all but thinking that the D5 would get better flow around what looks like a large loop, then again the ddc would probably help with the rads. For fittings I would really have to say nickel, but it really depends on the the other colors.

a few questions though. What coolant/ colour are you using and what type of tube are you using in terms of acrylic?

My mspaint skills must be lacking haha. Option 1 after bottom rad it runs up through the midplate to gpu inlet goes to gpu outlet back down to and under midplate back to cpu inlet and out cpu back down under midplate and comes back to res. Pretty much where there is a 90deg turn in the picture it's under the midplate. Coolant will either be clear or perhaps oil black. Tubing is ek 10/12

Spending Monies.

Alrighty, so I have spent some money today. Decided to go with nickel fittings as I feel itll give a nice contrast with all the black. I will also try route the tubing with some nice fluid bends similar to those of the new murderboxes or MBXForma as they are called now. Ill be running soft tubing downstairs (using EK ZMT) as that should make plumbing a LOT easier.



Ill be using passthoughs and C48s for the midplate however they will be underneath the top piece so will not be visible. Some more epic mspaint skills!

Nice work on the paint mate, practice is good for you rolleyes.gif

I've seen a parallel (Cpu,Gpu, Midplate) loop somewhere but cant find the pic mad.gif

Edit: Not the one I was looking for but will do for now.

If I was running normal atx I would definitely have run in parallel. Bit harder to do it cleanly in iATX
