That controller panel on that bottom pump bracket is a wonderful idea.

It turned out pretty good for my first successful build rolleyes.gif

I would probably find a way to change the cpu to gpu connection it looks like there is slight compression of the tube right above the gpu it could eventually lead to a kink in the tubing after it wears down a bit I had it happen to me before when I ran a similar connection. The sudden restriction in the tubing if the tube collapses could cause a leak where its exiting the gpu it's not a good time.

Just for reference this is the spot specifically

Also do you run without the front panel full time? As your rig looks very good without it.

I'm tempted to not even use it.

I will be using it when I finish the wall mount and the last little things on the build. It does look good without it though.

I assume you were talking about my build. I actually didn't use the pump bracket. I made my own bracket. No room for error though. It is a very tight squeeze. Next time I will probably just mount it under the video card.

Actually, that just the shadow. biggrin.gif You just made me jump up from my chair and take a second look laughingsmiley.gif

I actually heated the tube in hot water before I put it on and let it cool off into that shape. I didn't want it to stress the water blocks.

BTW, your avatar is awesome!!! thumbsupsmiley.png

ah good always hated having to make those runs got to love white sometimes it's incredible deceiving, I would say just keep an eye on it maybe check it every few weeks to see if you notice anything out of the norm but that goes without saying with essentially 180 degree runs of tubing.

Beyond that the build looks fantastic its not very often you see white and green builds pulled off well.

Thanks man. I will definitely be keeping an eye out on it. I do have one bend on my drain port that is pretty darn close to a 90. I appreciate he complement. I kinda got crap for it on a different forum. So to hear that it looks good makes me feel better about my build. thumb.gif

Just that the white tubing doesn't go with build and I should have gone clear tubing with green liquid. It kind of pissed me off because I thought it looked great. I chose this tubing on purpose. I had a friend remind me why I built it in the first place.

Just to quote him:

First you did an awesome job. You built the PC YOU wanted and accomplished it. It doesn't matter what anyone says.
If they think it should be done differently then let them build it.

It's so hard when you pour everything you have into a build and someone criticizes it. It feels like them are blatantly critiquing you as a person. But what you toiled with forever they judged in under sixty seconds.

Be proud of what you built and remember when you see builds where you might have done something differently to be gentle and guide them even when it seems obviously bad.


Just in case anyone else out there needs to hear it like I did. biggrin.gif

I couldn't agree more! We build these for us, not for them. Tell them if they want green build it themselves and use green! I personally love white tubing. I'm actually using clear Mayhem tubing with Mayhem Pastel White.

Oh, your build looks amazing by the way!
