If you're her e in the states get some Duralene($ .65 a foot) and go with Mayhems dye. The Dye guys can help you get the right kind of dye if I didn't suggest a good one. I don't use dyes an never have so I wouldn't know about that stuff tbh. But if you're gonna do dye may as well go with Duralene from Sidewinder. It still is prone to leaching like everything else but at $.65 a foot it's reasonable until we figure out the best tubing for 24/7 operation with temps of 30c or higher. There are no colored tubing that is not prone to the stuff sad to say.
IMO Phobya is underrated in the WC world. sure they aren't the top performer, but they are quite good for a relatively good price. (especially some rads)
i'm in Israel, i.e. everything would be bought from PPCS (since their prices are great and shipping looks good enough) so please only recommend thing from there. (unless you can recommend a better etailer for international sales, especially for Israel) again, (from ppcs) the Clearflex 60 looks like my best bet since everyone says it would plasticize the least out of all. when i considered red masterkleer some in here said that it leeches, while others said the opposite so i'm not sure on them. (though colored tubing makes it a bit easier money wise and simplicity wise)
and another consideration for me was to use the Corsair AF140 fan for the 280 rad ,since it's fpi isn't high, but i'm not sure that 0.88 pressure is decent even for that.

thanks for the heads up, i'll ask PPCS. (or if phillyd would be so kind
Phobya is pretty good nothing wrong with them except for Price. That's my only issue with Phobya. Similar performance, higher cost doesn't seem right to me.
You can get Yate Loons from PPCs'. That's where I got my 120x20s' in High Speed Silent. They're the only supplier of my current fans. Nobody else carries anything with a higher RPM rating in Low Profile 120x20.
I'm in the States so I normally recommend a National Vendor without thinking. But anything I recommend is usually stocked by PPCs' so you're good on that front.
I like PPCs' cause I can generally get them to get me something if I truly need it, from one of their suppliers. So you might see if they would be able to get Duralene for you. Not sure if Sidewinders would ship to Israel since I'm over here and never had cause to inquire in the past.

I'm thinking about using either brushed aluminum or piano-black acrylic...
And as soon as I get my hands on some NZXT extensions for the GPU, I'm going to paracord that *****...
Black and purple

, to go along with the theme of the build.
Also seriously considering a backplate for my 6970... maybe acrylic too...
Again, measurements = nightmare. Anyone has a template for the screwhole's positions on that board?
Yeah my lady likes purple so when I get some funds built up I'ma start in on buildin her an her daughter a reasonably nice zippy system. This way they won't feel the need to be on mine. Not that I would refuse my lovely generous woman Computer time on my Sig Rig. She just bought me some more Monsoons to finish out my Fittings so I can sell my EKs' which have been spoken for. So ya... well anyway I'm gonna build a FM2 system and probably get a Cooler Master or Corsair AIO cooler to keep it cool. Gonna use it as a teaching rig so I can show them what it is I do while we do it together. Eventually I want to customize it and have it set up in the Living Room as the Media Center so they can do whatever they want to their hearts content. Watch movies, do homework etc. Gonna set it up so the Movies are on her PW protected Profile and her daughter has her own open profile. Gonna be doing this sometime over the Winter if I can.
Gonna Be Mini ITX(for the daughter's personal system when she's older) for now. So it's gonna get swallowed up in that new HAF X SB case but it'll give us alot of room to manuever to customize it. The top grill is gonna get Dremeled, no sense in having a 200 up top when the system won't get hot enough to require a large fan Exhausting. Gonna mount a Purple Plexi top there I think. Either that or some kind of floral pattern laser engraved. And no my build is not on hold. I still intend on finishing it. I hope to sleeve all cables in MDPC and eventually put a 240 loop in the system. One step at a time though since this is a teaching rig.
... On a side note, I can't leave you guys alone for a minnit can I? I'm gone less than 24 hours an you crazy kids start fighting amongst yourselfs.
