Damn i wish i had the guts to try PETG tubing but damn bending seems pretty hard :s

That said I feel like sharing my build with you guys =)
I have totally rethought the loop and changed CPU Block + MB Block
Now i just wait for VEGA... And also for EK to make a waterblock for their limited edition <3

Which one are you looking at buying? I've used both the 1010 EQ and 1400 EQ and they are brilliant pieces of machinery. IIRC there is a larger model but it costs more than a Titan XP.

If it were my money, i'd opt for one of the high end Bosch like their MRP23EVS. With the money you save you can get a bunch of accessories. The festool is a great router, but is it worth 2-3x the price?

I have quite a few XSPC rotary fittings in my loop and i will say they can have issues when lateral force is put on them. You have to ensure your tubing is cut to the proper length. A little long or short and a rotary can leak. I had a close call a couple months ago where i had a small leak which dripped onto my X-Fi Titanium HD. Luckily i caught it and nothing was damaged. Had that card not been there the drop would have hit my GPU.

Im eventually going to convert the loop to hard tubing and ditch all these potential points of failure.

Still waiting on my riser cable, but all done. Ran out of clear tubing so had to use black from res to rad.

Beautiful! Interesting choice on using beer as the cooling fluid.

Seriously, though, nice work. Super clean looking and beautiful bends.

I love the color choice, definitely unusual.

You can actually get thinner cable if you want to spend more (perhaps a lot more). I bought a couple of hundred feet of 16AWG FEP Teflon Silver Plated Copper Wire from MODDIY, which measures out to just over 2mm in diameter in a caliper. PPCS sells the same thing, which they get from MODDIY. After discounts it works out to 71 or 72 cents a foot, and what I spent on it I saved on having my own combs made, which will probably be here by the end of next week. Just have to make up my mind weather I want to go waterjet aluminum, or laserjet acrylic or pom:



I imagine the 18AWG version of the same wire would be even thinner.
