You will get used to it. lachen.gif
I sure know the feeling.

So saying it's a couple of bucks extra is a bit far fetched. I've only read good stuff about Barrow on here, so I hope I can do the same once I'm done with my build

http://www.overclock.net/t/1604362/build-log-in-loving-memory/0_30#post_25320640

Ok fair enough. Although prices vary from location to location.
I won't see 3,5 times the price for BP stuff. Or I must compare the local hardwarestore stuff (plumbers inc. biggrin.gif) with BP.

But you are right.
I first wanted to get all compression fittings from Bitspower when I started with WCing but then I realized that only a single 90 rotary compression was like €22. So I "downgraded" to barb fittings, but still a 90 rotary from those were around €12 the piece.

Do note that I run 1/2 3/4 tubing.

You have to agree though that they look and feel good?

My first (semi) custom water loop.

Still some tweaks to be done here and there but I think that's the vast majority of everything done biggrin.gif

I'm thinking of getting another rad, perhaps a 280mm but i'm not sure if that's worth it.

All in all, the loop was £150~ which I am very happy with considering how minimal it looks.

Fan will be changed out for a spray painted Corsair stock 140mm soon.

Will be adding custom cables hopefully soon too.

Looks good. Certainly for a first try.

I wish I could make a cpu/gpu look for that price. lachen.gif
Although full custom looks so much better IMO.

If the second rad is worth it? Depends... what are you aiming for? Better temps and/or less noise?
I want as low noise as possible with good cooling so I went overkill for this build (still waiting on parts). 360 + 420 radiator for cpu and single gpu.

Are you willing to use Corsair fans on the radiator? If so, don't. biggrin.gif

Free tip: if you go sleeving (or extensions) drop some red/black in there. Should look neat.
When you want to sleeve cables yourself though: be prepared to spend.

Golden tip right here.
I still feel it....

When I did my first build I was getting soar hands after changing fittings numerous times to figure out my loop order (planning on the go). Took out the pliers and scratched my Bitspower rotary very badly. The horror.

Painter's tape round the fitting would be best. Because quite honestly if you're using a pair of Vice Grips on any fitting you're courting catastrophe. Hand tight + 1/4" turn max is all you should be putting on your fittings. Otherwise you can crack blocks/ strip threads. I've never had a single issue using my method. Hell I don't even use the inner Hex openings in my fittings(I currently have Monsoon Economies) mounting my fitting bases to anything. There is zero feedback from wrenches and hex keys when it comes to installing fittings imexp. 2cents.gif

Will tin flux or lead free soldering be safe to use on a copper tubing loop?

The first one is a bummer, but there's nothing to do about that second one until I switch GPUs. Hope you guys like it!

These work wonders. They are soft jaw pliers and you can even buy extra pads to replace when they get eaten up. We use them on all the milspec connectors on the weapon systems I work on in the Navy. But like Ceadder said above, you have to be very careful to not overtighten!
