Thanks I'm really pleased with it myself.

Still cant make my mind up about the pipework.

Originally I was going for chrome but the more I look at it, I'm thinking acrylic. I can get cleaner bends without having to use lots of fittings.
There's always the bonus of changing the coolant colour.

What do you think?

Chrome would look nice, but acrylic you would see your coolant, so could work out better, either way its going to look good. thumb.gif

I think chrome would be the nicer option. You do have a pretty large res to showoff coloured coolant if you go down that route. Just if you wana drop all the ££££ on fittings biggrin.gif

Chrome would look baller but like you say it would require a lot more work. If it were me I'd go with acrylic first and then later down the road think about chrome if you are getting the itch to change something haha.

Just need to find someone that has 12mm in stock.

Good choice, as imersa said you can see the coolant in the res, plus its going to match the build theme more, maybe abit more work and fittings but will be worth it.

I do like these new EK res tops they give you lots of connection options.
