I like it, looking good.

Now a question for you, is that rotary fitting needed on the GPU block? Could you have reversed the intake/outlet so that the rotary fitting could be deleted possibly? I just think it would be a cleaner look personally, especially if there is a window on that case. (ie: instead of top-right port & rotary, use top-left port no rotary, and swap bottom-left port fitting over to bottom-right.) I know it would mean redoing two pipes, but you said you were redoing some pipes anyways.

Just my two cents.

the cpu block inlet is actually in the very middle of the top two gpu outlets lol, and its ever so slightly to the right side so i would have a bend in the tubing either way, or have to use the fitting either way the problem is since its just slightly to the right by a mm or two that i needed to use the fitting where i put it to get a straight run on that acrylic from the gpu block to the cpu block, trust me i bent like 15 pieces of acrylic trying to get it right on but it just looked bad every time tongue.gif ill look at doing it again when i do redo the loop though biggrin.gif

That's what it looked like to me from pics, just ever so slightly right of center on that CPU inlet, I was just wondering and that's why I was asking. I just figured that everywhere else was bends in the tube, there had to be a reason there wasn't one there.

Lookin' good still.

If i was better at bending the acrylic i could probably get a piece in there to eliminate the need for that fitting there, but alas, this was my first time and i admittedly suck at it lol.

I may be wrong but I recall that the EK blocks on S-2011 perform best when rotated 90 degrees.
This may solve your acrlic link from gpu and get slightly better CPU temps.
Would be pretty easy to tweak a mm with the acrlic if that's all it's off center when cpu block is rotated.
Worth a look ??

Another classy build worthy of our beloved CaseLabs.
Great stuff thumb.gif
Can't wait to get back on my SM8 build rolleyes.gif

Phew finally started my build log.

Need to catch up with pics as a few more packages arrived today, and waiting on some trace claims from lost packages to be escalated from PPC and FCPU, was hoping to have this started before xmas but my fault for choosing USPS. All Fedex and UPS shipments made it unharmed.

How would I get ahold of someone from CaseLabs to speak with. I have a little issue I need to get some help with. Thanks in advance!
