Thanks! Hopefully it comes out in the final photos.

Ah the fun part, the loop. smile.gif

Nothing too crazy here running clear 1/2" od Primochill PETG in between Bill's hardline fittings. I do have one of the measuring and bending sets from Monsoon, but find that I actually get better results just bending by hand. I tackled the res first. The bottom bend was tricky, 3 bends, 3 planes, and no way to hold the piece in position to eyeball it. Heck I could barely get the finished piece in since it had to go through a slot under the rad just over 1/2" tall.




Once the hard bend was out of the way, the rest was just figuring out what looked best. Ok, I'll admit that it wasn't that easy. I spent a few days looking at it and deciding where i wanted the lines to run, but once the planning was out of the way, running the loop was a matter of a couple of hours.










The big thing was making sure everything was straight.

And then I filled the loop with Mayhem's UV white pastel. I really only wanted white but ordered the UV by mistake. Oh well, it'll look cool in black light, LOL.







Yeah, that run from the CPU to GPU is off. Sometimes you've got to get the fluid in to really get an idea of what it looks like. I thought it would be passable before I filled it, but wound up draining the loop to re-bend that piece.

While I was working on the loop, I was also cutting acrylic side panels.




They still need a bit more work but are passable. I thought I had the holes for the magnets figured out, but wound up having to glue them in instead press fitting them. That was a bit of a pain.




But now we're ready for final shots!

And now we're at the end of our journey. I want to thank GeForce Garage, Swiftech, and MNPCTECH for sponsoring this build and it's twin. They really made these possible. Also, I know a lot of people don't know the story these cases are based on, but hopefully they're cool enough to still be appreciated. smile.gif Now on with the pics!











































Once again, a big thanks to my sponsors:

That's a damn beautiful rig... hats off to you. I'm blown away by the detail and your dedication to get all those pieces milled, painted, assembled, etc... I also see you picked up another sponsor along the way!

I'd also love to see photos of it on and running, in the dark. UV coolant and LEDs will amplify the high-tech aura.

Anyway, love it.

Thanks! Yeah, I had talked to Bill about using his fittings when I was starting the project. I'd have used them even if he wasn't a sponsor, I really like them.

You know, I've never actually had it on in the dark, LOL.
