thumb.gif But I'll tell you what. When I was removing the cards from the loop, I was so irritated. Hard tubing may look cool, but it's a pain in the "...". When I get the SMA8, I'm going to try and use very little of the hard tubing in the upper compartment.

Yeah that's what's been keeping me away from hard tubing ...

I was reading in the Watercooling thread about a guy who had RAM issues. He can't just simply disconnect his block and replace a DIMM because of the hard tubing. With my soft tubing, I can unbolt the CPU block, clamp off the hoses and clean the cooler without making a big mess or too much fuss

Hard lines might give my build the rigidity to feel confident enough to bring it to work and brag though biggrin.gif IM LOOKIN AT YOU, CASELABS CASE ON ORDER

One reason why I haven't done hard tube again. I'm still tossing the idea of using it along with traditional tube. But very sparingly tbh.

I only used acrylic in the main chamber and used soft in the peristalsis and a couple runs in the rear chamber

Thats why I am looking at sleeving EK ZMT tubing with my soon to be started S8 build. Hard looks so very nice: the idea of bronzed metal tube and blocks is... quite enticing. But, a little much for a 1st WC build.

Honestly, hard line is so much easier to get out than soft. IMHO. I've never liked soft tube fittings because they always seem to be cumbersome. I've put together a few hard line builds and as long as you keep in mind space for things like RAM and connectors, I personally think it's much easier. Sure, it can be tough to get the angles down, but that's what tools and patience are for.

A good heat gun helps a lot thumb.gif and yeah patience on measuring makes a huge difference as well

I mean, that is insane. There is imitation and then there is straight up counterfeit/infringement.

I wonder when the TT cases will hit the US market and how much they will cost. I'm guessing $500. The people who are already willing to pay that much more a case will probably be willing to pay 20-30% more for the superior build quality of CL, I'd guess. But they may have more accessories built in which can drive up the price when buying CLs. The other problem is lots of people may buy TT just not even knowing that CL exists.

I certainly hope innovation, hard work and risk-taking are rewarded and that CL gets the credit and revenue it's earned.

People are tearing them apart over social media, and I have to give props to Kevin for maintaining his cool more or less on his post. The time line he posted along with the evidence leaves little doubt but I will still talk to TT and get their story before I do anything outside of this thread.
