What seems to be the most durable tubing for tight bends?

If you go by the WC forums, then yes, straight distilled with a few drops of PT nuke, or distilled with kill coil (both? not sure if this is harmless overkill or if there is some potential for a reaction). This will give you the best temps, but not a huge difference. As long as you are not mixing metals in your loop (aluminum is often vilified), then there is no real need for anti corrosive properties of the Feser type coolants. Feser I hear gunks up blocks, though I have no personal experience to back that up.

As far as tubing, I have only used two, Tygon and Koolance. The tygon I tried was the food grade clear type. It looked good and was very pliable so it was easy to slip on fittings. It also kinked easy and once the plasticizer leached out it became cloudy ( a few weeks at most). I turned to black koolance tubing and it was much stiffer but did not kink as easily. I am happy with it. Things I have yet to try but hear great things is the PrimoFlex Pro LRT tubing, they have an impressive bending radius, or so I am lead to believe on the forums. They come in different colors but beware the color you see on the web may not look exactly the same color in person, I have heard their red looks more orange in person.

Hmm not sure if I should get it from tiger (never ordered from them, do they charge tax?) or wait for newegg to have it on sale.

TD should not charge you tax. They never have for any of my purchases and I believe that is in certain locations only. I really do hope Newegg will match that sale soon because I'm going to purchase a white one next week.

So why don't you get the white one from TD since it's on sale?

Posted a page or so back. Had to pay a traffic ticket that is conveniently the same price (non-sale) as a white 600.

1.) Move both HDD cages out (1 to bottom of chassis and the other 1 remove completely). Thereafter the CM fan can be mounted on the OUTSIDE of the fan bracket. I haqve 2 problems with this option. 1 is that there is a 20mm gap between the chassis and fan. 2 is that since the one HDD cage is moved down, it kinda obscures air intake to my bottom crossfire GFX card.

2.) Second option is to drill holes to mount the CM fan directly to the chassis (like Darkcyde did). Problems I have with that is the drilling as I said before and also the hole placments is rather close to the pre-drilled air intake holes in front.

Personally I preferred the modding of the stock 200 X 20mm fan from white to red LEDs as it was easy and kinda makes me feel that I achieved something that is a bit more of an elegant/suited/more correct look and feel when compared to the technical design of the chassis
Although I believe your solution is a great, simple solution if you were just interested in getting red LEDs, you can install larger thickness fans at the front of the case. I suppose no one has mentioned this because we talked about it extensively earlier in the thread.

If you remove the front "curl" from the 3.5" drive cage(s), you can fit a 30mm fan in the front. I (and others) have a 200MM NZXT fan installed up front. Although I did not have to drill any holes, removing the curl from the drive bays is a must. In my case, I was able to get two upper screw holes to line up with chassis mesh holes, and I just let the bottom of the fan hang because once the drive cage is reinstalled (minus the curl) the cage fit snugly against the fan keeping the bottom of the fan tight against the case chassis.

Another advantage of this (although I have not tried it) is that the NZXT fan has mounting holes for LEDs and channels cut in the spokes for LED wires. So, LEDs could be mounted to this fan if desired.

Here are some pics (I am too lazy to go back and dig through the thread to find what are likely exact duplicates of these pictures).

Here is the curl that must be removed:



Here is the curl after removal (sorry, I was using electrical tape to hide the cut, but it came off. I have fixed it since):



You can also see the NZXT fan with the LED mounting holes.

Here's one of the mounts that lines up with a mesh hole:



This fan works...lol...fantastic. It's a very high airflow fan compared to other 200mm fans, and runs in my system using a fan controller at about 1300RPM max. It's noisy when turned up all the way and quiet when turned down.

Just so you know that there is a third option, even though it is more suited to getting better airflow but can also be used to add LEDs.

Isn't the point of replacing the one 200mm fan with two 120mm fans to get better airflow? Do you really think you achieve that by blocking off half of one fan?

A few people have posted builds in this thread where they cut out the front of the case, or drilled new mesh holes to fit two 120mm fans. You should look through and see how they did it. I just can't see 1/2 a 120mm fan being of much use.

I do know that already as I said. One can even mount a 30mm thick fan on the OUTSIDE of the plastic fan bracket if one HDD cage is removed and the other is moved to the bottom of the chassis.

Again I did not want to make any modifications to the chassis (like HDD cage lip/curl) nor drill holes for fan in front. Damaging the beautiful black interior paintwork would break my heart. I wanted to use what was there already.

I am posting pics of the fan's LED mod in my next post for those of you who are interested.

Hi Guys and Gals (if any)

Here are some PICS to illustrate the stock Corsair Graphite 600T WHITE LED 200mm by 20mm fan modification to RED LEDs. Those of you who do not wish to make modifications to the chassis and its structure but wish to change from a WHITE to RED (or any other colour for that matter) find this usefull.

Also, If you want to test your workmanship during the process you can use a spare cheap PSU and short the 20/24 PIN ATX connector wires: Green + ANY Black wire. This will switch on the PSU. Thereafter you can use a MOLEX to 3PIN fan adapter to run the fan to test your work.
