thx guys!
In hindsight it's a lot of fun. Not sure about the 240 to cpu tube though, it also depends on the gpu.
Also the main reason I didn't do the gpu was that the universal block has the g1/4 threads in an angle.

My skill isn't that good yet.

Im not trying to be rude.. just saying what Im feeling smile.gif (please dont shoot me)

The CPU->120 rad looks.. meeh. bend->120 should be longer and the bend should be tighter.
The 120->Res looks better, but still has that bulking up thing as discussed earlier..
If you make a new 120->res, you can use the old piece for a new CPU->120.
The 240->CPU looks like the best bend so fare (hard to tell from pics) but yea.. looks kinda funny with a / line like that when the rest is straight.

Other than that, the loop looks perfectly operational, just not the prettiest bends.

Are you still using that sheet to bend around? or found a hard round object to use?
What is your plan to implement the GPU? the loop kinda looks done to me tongue.gif I cant see how you will bring in the GPU.

Anyways.. I like how this is unfolding! and I hope you will take the time to do a bit better bends.. not bad for a noob tho! not bad at all!

Nah man, I appreciate your opinion. thumb.gif

Yes, all bends look like rubbish, lol. But I don't mind, I'm not doing it to win prizes. So no one will be shot (at) biggrin.gif
But maybe I'll redo a few bend, I still have enough tubes left.

The alu sheet is gone and I'm using a part of a monitor arm now..McGyver mode engaged. It has a smaller diameter round end.
As for the gpu..I won't include it...yet. Maybe next month I'll get the VGA Supreme bridge and give it a go

I think I will do, or at least try, the 240 to cpu line differently. Parallel to the radiator first, then bend 90deg towards cpu, then 90deg down.

Sounds good! thumb.gif
I was thinking that same rout for the 240->CPU.. 2 bends shouldnt be too tough when you have that fare between bends smile.gif
my 2 bend was kinda PITA caurse there is only a few cm between bends smile.gif but still came out nicely (if you ask me, lol)
Since you are redoing that 240-CPU, (Im guessing it is not long enough to be used for what you want) you can cut out the bend and use it to replace the CPU->120. it looks like a really clean 90 degree on that one.
Measure twice, cut once.

Before you start nit picking, I'm far from done. Still need to do:
- tube trimming,
- redo 2 bends,
- refit or remove the reservoir sponge,
- add a gpu (hasn't been delivered yet)
- redo the cables,
- clean it wink.gif
