I had this issue with one of my 15 xspc hard-line fittings. The other 14 are perfect, but that one... I never got tube to fit inside of it despite trying 10 times with silicone grease

Maybe this post from Costas will help thumb.gif

Hey everyone! This thread was a great place to look for inspiration when I was looking to do my very first water cooled build. While I certainly don't match the level of some of the posts here, I hope these pictures might help folks get some ideas:

Yes, it's just connected directly to the PSU, no need to wire anything differently :thumbup:.

nice and clean build thumb.gif
if you painted the ram with some black so you get a 2 tone look it would really match your build.

kinda like this. {dont judge my 3 min gimp skills}

Here is my question.. I was looking at the page for the bay res and it says that the top port in that orientation is the actual outlet and the bottom port is the in port...




so that means the "IN" port would connected directly to the pump is that going to be a problem?

Bump one more time bc I could really use help on this one

The only problems I see is that its going to be a bit harder to bleed the air out of the res since you'll have to "maze" it out to the bigger area with the fillport. Not a big deal but I'd keep a close eye on it so you don't fill that entire top with air. Bay res's are usually a pain to fill/bleed though, I'm about to get rid of mine because I just can't stand it anymore.

As mentioned, bleeding is going to be a challenge, and you'll need to make sure the res stays very close to full at all times, as it'll behave like a top return tube res without a water pipe inside.

I'd put a "T" fitting, facing up with a short extension and cap, at the top rear port, so that you have a bleed / fill point for the res.

If you can turn the front panel of the res around, then you'd have a view of the upper 15 to 20% or so of res to keep an eye on the level.

Thank you! You know, I hadn't thought about that. It'll probably stay as it is, since I like the splash of color, but that looks like it'd look pretty sweet.

Does anyone remember a JayzTwoCents video where he recommend some substance to polish up PETG tubing? I've had a look through and can't find it... it must have been a throwaway comment in one of his vids, not a specific one about it. Failing that, has anyone used anything to buff up PETG and get a better shine?

On a separate note, I am curious if anyone here sells their creations (completed builds that is)? I don't mean your everyday average build, I mean the special unique ones that have clearly had a lot of love and attention poured in to them. Are there people out there who will buy a system like this at a premium? I don't mean this as a full time job or by which to make a fortune or anything (but not lose money either), more just as a means by which to continue your hobby and keep building? smile.gif
