post #99721 of 107319
All a matter of opinion... I'm not going to say I'm any good at this, haven't even begun with hard tubing. But my thought on looks is that I don't think it looks good when there are lots of bends that doesn't really need to be there, fills no real purpose.

Extenders or fittings + tube isn't much of a "problem" for me, but might look better with the fittings...

I was against it and had them as hardline but it looked too plain and caused a hotspot of light reflection. The knurl on the extender acts as a light diffuser and looks much better than pipe/fitting.

Plus the pipe was so short that the 2 fittings almost touched which did not look good, and would be a good area for problem leaks.

Oh I know, just explaining the choice because in general I agree with your comment.

And as an engineer.....there is no such thing as perfection; it can always be better thumb.gif

Your build made me really want to do hardline, but I don't wanna rebuy fittings and whatnot lol
post #99726 of 107319
Careful it is addictive. I had a bunch of left over components so I just started my new build:

InWin 805 Infinity Case

i7-6850K
2x SLI MSI Gaming 6G 980Ti
Corsair Dominator Platinum 64GB (4x16GB) 3200MHz
Corsair 1200AXi PSU
ASUS X99-M WS mATX

Probably going to use chrome tubing/fittings since I have enough left over. Have the Bitspower VGA WB's too.

I am not going to do the whole MOBO/chipset block again.

Anyone have good (high quality) suggestions for:
  • 2011-V3 CPU block
  • Small res/pump combo (space will be somewhat tight)
post #99727 of 107319
EK res/pump combo with a DDC pump if you are lacking space.

I always like using Heatkiller blocks.
post #99728 of 107319
Ok thanks I'll check that!

By the way nice build biggrin.gif

Ahahah. You don't have to lie...
post #99730 of 107319
Ended up with an EK Supremacy EVO Elite for the CPU block. Couldn't find a heatkiller for LGA 2011-V3

Still up in the air for the res/pump. The combos look flimsy so may do a custom machined viewing panel for the 805i with an integrated reservoir to make the new build more unique. Get everything tomorrow so will see what it looks like before I pull the trigger.
