On it is bass A$$ as it is completely modular and you can build it like lego's. Can be vertical or horizontal and do you see the CCFL Lights that will light up the back. thumb.gif

So I'm still trying to figure out ways to make the tubing routing more unique, and unlike anyone elses. I think I finally made a decision, and this is the one I think I will end up doing. Not much bending at all, and its very simple.



Now the GPU's will continue to go straight down because I love that look. Plus I already purchased my 560GTS which is 30mm. If I was going to do a different tube routing, I would've went with a 560GTX or gone with the new EK 560.

I love how I currently have my 750D setup where it leads directly from my Pump/Res to the CPU block, Kind of like how @1911Savage's build goes. Instead, I will make the exact bend and use the same fittings I used in the 750D, except I will make it go straight down into the midplate rather than the pump. Here's what I mean:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Also, instead of the "out" port on the CPU block going straight into the top rad like I have my 750D, It will follow the same routing as the "in" port of the block. From there, I will use flexible tubing and route it behind the motherboard tray to the top rad.

Now I didn't show any tubing from the top RX480. I believe I will have the tubing from above the plate up top, and I can route it without it looking like any tubing is going into the RX480, again behind the motherboard tray.

As far as the bottom radiaotrs and tubing goes, I will make it so that its all a single loop, and the tubing goes to the right ports.

What do you all think about this one. @IT Diva??? I really want to make it mine, and unique. Have you seen anyone's like this?

Well I still need the case. I'm just using that case as an example. It should be shipped out within the next two weeks.

Yeah I thought that didnt look like a caselabs, Its a convincing enough placeholder though.

At least to me, Im not terribely familiar with caselab layouts, the shape just seemed close enough to Skunkworks.

I like it. Hard tubing and clean lines always appeals to me but every time I go to buy fittings and such I end up backing out. Something about vintage tubing still grabs my attention if it's done well.

I can hardly wait for you to get your case wink.gif

Well that really goes to show how much studying I need to do on caselabs.

I like your latest layout the best. +Rep for the amount of time and thought you are putting into the layout to make it unique thumb.gif. Just goes to show there are still infinite possibilities with the SMA8.
