and having pics in here leads to people wanting to know more about it and head over there, as was the case with me. So I think it's good the way it is personally.

Oh I never noticed those, perhaps I should have looked before making a proposal.

However those seem to be dedicated to the pipe bending process. Personally, i have never built an acrylic loop with bending the actual tubing, ive always had fittings at every angle. and from my own experience, it seems like most people who take this route are very focused on either maintaining 90 degree angles and horizontal/vertical lines only, or symmetry of the lines. This alone vastly changes almost the entire construct and theme of the builds.

Not to sound selfish but I wasnt so much concerned with helping beginners with acrylic loops, but just moreso a general area of specific watercooling aesthetics in rigid tubing where anything can be mentioned. i.e. has anyone used those new Barrow acrylic tubes ive been seeing, or digital storm is now offering rigid tubing in their mini-itx bolt, etc.

The first link I posted is still likely the best place for that, I have seen people go with bending or just fittings for the angles as well in there. I could be wrong of course, a general rigid tubing thread may well be a success!

Which TIM is better, the ectotherm that came with the EK block, an arctic silver ceramique 2 or a ZP heatsink compound?

How did you work that with your HDD array? thinking.gif Did you connect your array via MB I/O or through the MB? I think I know how to mount mine to the surface(underneath) of my desk but with my FT on top of it, that would be a heck of a length of SATA cable and I've got SATA 6 so I'm not even sure I can get the correct cables of that kind of length. blushsmiley.gif

Good knowledge. Thanks for passing that along. cheers.gif

Thanks for the compliment. I spent a lot of time and money on it. smile.gif

Now for the data connections I used the motherboard io and ran the 6ft sata cables behind the mobo then up and around the power supply and out of a pci slot using these cables: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812422750

I did the same for the power and I bought this extension to help:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812123317
and this:
http://www.jab-tech.com/power-supply-extension-and-adapter-cables/24-molex-to-four-sata-single-braid-sleeved-black/

I am thinking about cutting a hole in the back of the cover behind the mobo to run all those cables there to clean up the look. Still not sure as I don't want to do something irreversible.

Received these fittings today.

Together with 12Pcs 1/2" OD X 36" Hard Tubing from Primochill.

Should be enough for a NOOB, right? lachen.gif

Does a 1/2" OD tube feel like this small?? tongue.gif


Anything that can help me with these are gladly welcomed.

Is it petg or regular tubing ? The only dif between them is that petg allowd your with more room for mistakes, if you are new to hard tubing i would recommend this because is not expensive and you already have the fittings.
Another thing i would recommend is the monsoon bending kit, it has all angles, with this you are good to go. biggrin.gif
