Isn't PETG better than acrylic ?

Petg is more forgiving and less likey to break. However, acrylic is more clear in a sense and when it gets really heated up bends better. Petg tends to be a bit stiff and tends to bounce back a little.

I'm still not very happy with Alphacool fittings, in my case they leaked like 45° or 90° fittings from Alphacool

Regarding the XSPC reservoir and pump combo, I know few people have issues fit this in Phanteks cases as they use their own mounting and can't be used on Phanteks Enthoo Primo reservoir mounts, I think you can modify this or use reservoir mount which is close to PCI_E slots, but maybe I'm wrong there on this

For fans I would go with Phanteks PH-F120MP or BeQuiet Silent Wings 3, Silent Wings 3 would be probably better choice but I can say I quite like Phanteks PH-F120MP fans,only tried older BeQuiet Silent Wings 2 or Pure Wings 2 which hasn't been bad

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

Agreed on the SW3 or F120MP. Definitely the two nicest sounding fans I have tested. Actually went back to the F120MP after testing the eLoops, GTs, Noctua (F12 and iPPC), Corsair (ML and SP) and a few others.But, I would be hard pressed to choose between the SW3 and F120MP.

I had the Photon in my Primo. Required drilling two holes, that's all.

I'll be zero help with hardline fittings, not my thing.

OK so for a first timer like me you think i be able to deal with the bending if i get a few extra ones and practice on em ? or should just stick with PETG?

I've used bitspower, ek, monsoon, xspc, and primochill hardline fittings. Ek is similar to primochill in quality to me. Bitspower is nice but priced high. Moonsoon I was never a fan and I don't trust that one size fits all thing they got going. I can highly reconmmend xspc hardline fittings. I have it in all 3 of my pcs at home. No leaks ever and the 3 oring system is nice. They fit the tubing xspc sells as well. Nice quality nice price.

With acrylic your going to need to saw then burnish. With petg you can flat out just cut it and a light sandpaper swipe your good. Petg is definitely more friendly the first time around. I would say take your time, get about 10ft extra to waste. Once you get a hang of it it's easy. The hardest part of all is just the measuring with multiple bends one 1 pipe. If you don't feel confident in a bend don't use it, and bend another.

Oh yea always give yourself about 17mm at the end of a piece to go into the fitting. This way you don't worry about it going in partially or crooked etc.

so it would seem i will have to drill 2 holes for the xspc pump and unfortunately i don't have one here and rather not buy one so either i change the case to a bigger one so i don't have to deal with drilling or change the pump to something else now the issue is time as i don't have much of it and have to order my components today to work on em on the weekend.

It's not hard to drill thru a case. Or you can just get the bracket to mount it to a radiator fan holes.

Changing to a bigger case is not the answer since it is not a size problem. The issue is with mounting holes lining up. Regardless of what pump/res combo and case you go with, it is always uncertain if holes will line up since there is no standard for mounts. In other words.....you may well be drilling holes no matter what you order.
