If you don't want to wait, You could always order tubing off amazon I know they sell monsoon tubing I think titanrig is the seller prime shipping. I'm not sure if the tubing cost more on amazon but whenever I can find what i'm looking for on amazon that has to do with pc water cooling I buy it from them. If something is wrong with the order or I just ordered the wrong thing I have no problems returning and usually don't have to pay for shipping it back.

Considering AC is Metric and Monsoon is SAE it will never work. wink.gif

On the issue of the template. I cannot see picking up Adobe Illustrator for $20 a month, to get a template box I will likely only use once or twice. frown.gif Does Google have a compatible template? Prolly not huh. mellowsmiley.gif

I assume Bitspower and Alphacool work together fine.

I have some question about the CCFL plugs:
- is it safe to use them on the same port used for filling the res?
- my res has the D5 at the base, can I use a bulb almost as long as the whole tube, or should I go for the shorter one, leaving some clearance from the bottom?
- any experience with white light on clear frosted tube filled with pastel white coolant?

I would probably reverse it as the black is what etches...unless you want to etch off that much of the color?

I'm running the 1/2"x5/8" tubing. smile.gif

I will put the end result on PPCs fB page if I can get one. thumb.gif
Match for sure. I don't mind a lip in some setups. But tbh, I like a clean unobtrusive look. biggrin.gif

I only have the template in .ai format...do you have access to Adobe illustrator? Or a program that can open .ai files?

Are you talking about the EV2 fittings?

Any VECTOR file format should work for the laser.

The box dimensions are:

• For the 3/8 x 1/2 (13mm) fitting, the box is 13mm tall by 62.8mm wide.
• For the 1/2 x 5/8 (16mm) fitting, the box is 13mm tall by 70.38 wide

Thx BoxGods ... my pics are trying to illustrate what the fitting would look like (I was planning on a matte black fitting with silver below). I guess the final picture has to be a 'mask' type and I will reverse it as noted.

Re ai files ... you can open them with GIMP ... that is the software (free) that I used to generate my pictures.

I can't think of any reason they would not work on a fill port. Just be careful with the bulb (common sense stuff--if the fill port is inside your case make sure there is physically enough space to remove the bulb without bending it). Also if the fill port is on the outside of your case...how will / would you route the power wire from a CCFL plug?

The listed bulb lengths take having a D5 end cap into account. IOW a 100mm bulb will fit into a 100mm tube that has a TRP w/D5 on the bottom.

No...sounds like it would look cool, but keep in mind the light is not magic--it will not shine thru solids--turning on the light in your kitchen will not light up your bathroom (thru the walls).

Luckily, my case is a Thermaltake P5, so the reservoir is inside and outside at the same time biggrin.gif
What I was afraid of is the ccfl plug being too fragile or requiring too much torque to be properly installed on an already assembled rig wink.gif
