Copper tubing would look incredible. I would recommend using a pipe bender to get perfect angles. You will need to use compression fittings designed for copper tubing. Soldering isn't an option because fittings soldered to copper pipe can not be rotated for tightening. The only way it would be possible to solder is to tighten the fittings, then solder the pipe to the fittings-- This means you would have to solder pipe a few inches away from your motherboard. Compression fittings are a much better option as they do not require heat to install and can be easily undone. Compression fittings have been used for years on supply lines for sinks, toilets, and ice makers. Most are rated for over 150 PSI. You computer will be a work of art if you take your time and plan ahead.

Edit: If you hare having difficulty finding a pipe bender that can make tight angles, look at your local HVAC supply stores. Window air conditioning units have many tightly bent copper copper tubes. Those bends are made with small diameter copper pipe bender.

Would look interesting if you did it right... perhaps a steampunk look?

dam you guys went and stole my thunder, he did say it dropped his temps some, the other thing i noticed is lack of fans and he only mentioned his bottom temps, plus no mention of what kind of pump he used either, but regardless people call EK king over .5C

i imagine if i kinda make a radiator that would help drop temps some, like instead of straight lines do a little bit of coiling, it will be harder to make it look straight through
