But I have this desire for more that pushes it's way to the front of my head every couple of weeks that I have trouble fending off!!

Your concept of time is much like a roommate I had in college. 2 days to him was like 5 years.

So 2mo since you touched your rig. ... that's what like 150 years right?

Sounds like youre overdo

That is damn sweet. I am also looking to use BP 90 Acrylic fittings and seeing yours in action makes me feel good about my decision to go that route. I'm hoping to actually purchase all my parts in the next couple of weeks (hopefully by then X99 parts availability will have stabilized).

thank you, i appreciate your feedback.

I always encourage acrylic loops, that is, with as many or perhaps zero bends in the actual tubes. imo, ive never been fond of the rigid tubing thats been heated and shaped, it just lacks the same industrial style that i enjoy, and rarely do I ever seen loops that really nail the symmetry and layout comparable to setups with the fittings. However, the fittings indeed are extremely expensive, so its understandable to not go that route. But overall, It really seperates from the common builds and also speaks to your level of craftsmanship and the level of work that went into building your machine.

With that being said however, I still would warn anyone that it is indeed difficult to pull off successfully. as I said, its ridiculously expensive to gather all the fittings, and its also difficult to predict which and how many of each fittings you will need (also the bitspower ones, specifically black sparkle, sell like hotcakes and are routinely sold out everywhere). So you need to do a ton of planning and brainstorming as to how you want to plan your loop out. Its going to take a ton of patience and time. If you really want straight lines and perfect symmetry, youll not only have to measure to the point over and over again, youll also want to make sure you attempt to cut the ends of the tubes to be as level as possible, as this also effects how it will rest inside the fittings. All the angles and complexity of the loop will also hinder flow (but increase head pressure a bit) as well, so you want to make sure your pump(s) are adequately powerful.

my first acrylic loop took me so much trial and error, i eventually got frustrated and rjushed through it. Initially, I thought it looked great, but it didnt take long for me to realize how crooked and disproportionate all the bends and angles were, and I also put a ton of stress on all the angled fittings and mounts throughout the chassis. But now, Im so satisfied with my build that I find myself spending too much time staring at it instead of actually using it lol. I feel like its not too photogenic, odd as that sounds. It looks so much better in person, for some odd reason, whenever I try to take pictures, I just feel like theyre always lacking something, like the essence of it isnt quite there. Maybe thats just me being picky....

Well shoot... I need some cables for this build... but I thought I would ask for a join...

@Nichismo

I've spent a lot of time planning and figuring out in advance what I think I'm going to need from a fittings perspective. I agree they are expensive, but I've had plenty of time to plan and hopefully I'll be pretty close when I put it all together. I should be ordering everything in a couple of weeks (FINALLY after starting this build in Feb and having to put a halt to it due to a lack of funds). Your build and a couple of others have given me plenty of inspiration and excitement. I'm looking forward to having a gaming rig again.

XD you have no idea how great that makes me feel.....Actually, maybe you do, lol. A bunch of builds pop into my head as soon as I read your post, I spent a ton of time looking at countless builds for inspiration. Im not sure if you have heard of Singularity Computers but if you take a look at their facebook page, im sure it can also motivate you quite a bit (his latest client build is absolutely breathtaking, completely puts my rig to shame)

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Singularity-Computers/131906736837382

I would love to provide any insight or help if you want. You going to do a build log of some sort? and did you mention which case you are going with?

Hopefully, everything will go 100% smooth and as planned from start to finish. Along with all the stuff we just mentioned, the maitenence can be tough too. Anytime you want to change ANYTHING, even a minor one, it can be alot of work.... and draining is a tall task in itself.
