Oh ... and subbed!

Not a bad point to make! That's why I'm still printing them and mocking them up.

Some test fitting

Deciding on a clean and attractive tube run is proving to really test my brain. I'm trying to keep a symmetrical outside of the case even though each side houses different things (MOBO vs PSU) and each loop is separate (CPU, GPU) so each side doesn't match.

Unsure of which way I will put the radiator but seems to fit alright no matter which way I turn it.

The PSU side doesn't have any mounting for a fan after I took the HDD cage out of it. I'll likely stop by the store and grab some thing sheet metal to form a mount.

Depending on which way I mount the radiator will determine how far forward or back the reservoir goes but this was just for my own perspective to think and plan from.

Unfortunately I can't find ANY stock on a 1070....going to have to make the call soon to just get a 970 instead though I really don't want to do that, unfortunately this build has to be done for the beginning of July.

I've gone through changing how I'm going to do my tube runs at minimum 20 times. It's been a challenge because I want it to look nice and also I want it to be as symmetrical on both sides as possible even though because of the sections of the case each loop is cooling something in a completely different area of the case. So with the loops needing to go to completely different sections I believe this is how I'll keep it the returns to reservoir. Debating keeping/not keeping drains from being in the front of the case like that but having it there is just very functional and I don't think looks bad.

Those Valve ball's aren't necessary for draining. A stop-plug is enough smile.gif

This is how mines are done:

True, i might end up going that route mostly because i can sell the valves. My original and backup plan included them bring inside and would have needed them but if i do it on the outside as i have it i dont really need them. Ill evaluate the looks

Video Update 2:

Cutting and drilling the case. This is the part you absolutely DON'T want to screw up....Make the wrong cut and need a new case.

Great mod work, but poor power tool safety practices, lol.

Love seeing this thing come together, should be awesome!
