anyways, as to not enrage the monster dog that lives under B's bed...



don't think I ever shared this one of my 900D.

cellphone pic ftw.

 

Looking good, but totally need to use some black electric tape or something over those Swiftech labels on the pumps :(

 

 

Edit: I'm an idiot. Completely forgot you tore that down and built into a STH-10.

hehe... That case is long gone now. Sold it to a guy looking to do a father & son project. He happened to be a fabricator, so it turned out really nice!

Those pumps are now clad in the EK-DDC housings.

Ok, I decided that the water cooling build that I'll do will be flex tube. Had I gone with rigid and what you see in the render, it would be nearly $1500 to. Instead, its $1100. I COULD however, go with rigid and learn to bend the tube, and it would be just slightly more.



--EDIT--
Ok, flex tubing would be $1096.98. If I did rigid and bent it, it would be $1075.96. Doing rigid with all the fittings seen in the picture would have been something like $1496.

You should learn to bend it like Beckham.

If you go with Rigid tubing, take off all the fittings except the 2 needed for each actual component.

Yeah, I pretty much decided to do that (a pack of 10 primochill rigid fittings, and a bitspower 90 degree for the GPU). Gonna buy two Primochill fittings and a tube so I can learn how to bend the tubing.

Do your wallet a favor and get yourself three or more 6' tubes from McMaster-Carr or US Plastics to learn & practice with. If, after you have gotten your technique down, you feel you need colored or UV acrylic from Primochill or Monsoon, then spend the extra funds on it. fwiw, I went through more than 12 feet of acrylic before I getting consistent bends that weren't destined for the bin.

Definitely +1 this for practice. I had to straighten my act up quick once I messed up my first bend.

Oh, wow. That's cheap. Ok, I'm gonna definitely do that. For US Plastics, I would have to order 18 to get 3 6' tubes?

Also, 9mm o-ring cord from mcmaster-carr works great as a bending insert for 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD tube (as suggested by IT Diva). It works a lot better than the cords sold by Primochill or Monsoon. edit: I actually haven't even tried using the cord that came with the Monsoon bending kit as it's too short to be practical imho.

I've ordered from McMaster-Carr, not US Plastics, so I'm not sure but that is what the page seems to say. It says their tube is sold by the foot but must be ordered in 6' lengths. Keep in mind that shipping will cost a bit for 6' tube. I think it cost around $20 shipping for my order from McMaster-Carr, and iirc they didn't even list the shipping costs or details at the time of sale. They do have super fast shipping though. It was at my door two days later and that never happens where I live.

Do be sure to have a review of the Acrylic pipebending 101 thread for tips/advice so you're not going into it blind like I was & maybe you won't make so much scrap.
