The pastel white would look golden in your build!

Changing the PSU is not on my options list as I do like the PSU I have, neither sleeving as that voids the warranty. What I planned to do in the future is get a white acrylic cover to hide the PSU. smile.gif

You could just get a few of the Velcro cable wraps, the really thick ones, in white and use them to wrap the bottom cables together; with each one slightly overlaying the prior, it should look great in that there will be no "rainbow" in the bottom. The reason people so often comment on them is because it disrupts the visual flow of the build, based on how our brain tells our eyes to track something.

Got a package today:

- EK D5 X-RES 140 CSQ - Acetal (To get rid of bay reservoir)
- 12x EK CSQ 16/12mm Niquel fittings (To replace the non-branded fittings from Aquatuning)
- 4x 45º EK PSC Niquel adapters
- 4x 90º EK PSC Niquel adapters
- 2x Mayhems Pastel White (250ml Concentrate to mix with 750Ml of DI water)
- 3 meters of Primochill Primoflex Advanced LRT 16/11mm clear
- 2x White 3mm LEDs for the CPU block
- Watercool Heatkiller Multi-Link





Sadly the store confused and instead of sending me 16/11 tubing, they sent me 19/13mm tubing, so I couldn't use the new EK fittings and had to use my old 19/13mm fittings, I'll replace them for the new EK 16/12 fittings once the appropiate tubing arrives next week. smile.gif

Here are a few pictures of the process:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








And here's the final pictures:








I know pictures aren't great (First ones are from the phone), plus it is night time here, I'll do some proper pictures during day time tomorrow. I will also re-do everything next week once I get the appropiate tubing for my new fittings. tongue.gif

Nice Work I like your new pastel white. I have followed your thread for a while and was going to suggest a similar setup internally to clean up the loop a little bit. Now it looks much better. thumb.gif

Refined, and re-refined! Tubing size mistake aside, doesn't it look so much better now. I don't really like bay reservoirs, the tube res. is way nicer.thumb.gif

Yes it looks awesome, plus this new top/reservoir is amazing, it bleed all the bubbles within seconds, while the bay reservoir took all night long (more than 5 hours) to properly bleed the loop!

Here are some pictures with day light:










That's it for now, I'll recieve the proper tubing (16/11mm) next week and then I'll install the new EK CSQ Nickel fittings (And get of my cheap non-branded fittings tongue.gif) I recieved yesterday, which look awesome! smile.gif
