Very nice, well when you get around to testing that please pay an update.

Finally bought a real tube cutter today, instead of just using scissors which doesn't work well lol. Also some polyethylene tubing which is safe to use with ethanol. It doesn't bend too well, almost like hard tubing. The hose clamps did seem to compress it though, so hopefully it will seal well on barbs. I think I'll use the EK barbs. Just need to find a pump/res that would work.

I also need a new PSU, think I'll buy a used EVGA 1200 P2 off ebay for ~$110. It's amazing how quickly PSUs depreciated, that one's $250+ new. My 10+ year old Silverstone 1200 has like 4.8V on the 5V rail and 3.2V on the 3.3V rail, I think it's shot.

The clamp over a barb should do the trick if the fit is tight, the picture you posted looks like it would be more than enough.
Did you finally settle on isopropyl and water or something else?

I've used a heat gun (low setting, safe distance) on polyethylene before to help tighten hose clamps...obviously, first try it out on a separate piece of your polyethylene tubing stock.

I am looking to use ethanol, just need to find a way to source it at a reasonable cost. The denatured stuff tends to have nasty additives that I don't want to breathe in. I suppose I could use 4 gallons of cheap vodka, for $100 or so lol.

The heat gun is good advice. I need to choose a pump/res so I can do some testing here. Think I'm also gonna get the Bykski full metal waterblock, since it's usable on my ancient LGA 775 parts, then I can test my insulation skills there. Much cheaper if I lose something to condensation.

Just ordered the following:

EVGA Z390 Dark
Trident Z 4133 19-19-19-39 1.35V 2x8GB
Dimastech Test Bench (in red!)
XSPC X4 Photon 170 (glass res, the pump is plastic so may disagree with ethanol/cold temps, but pretty much all PC watercooling pumps are plastic too, so I'll see how it does. No reason to spend more on a d5 that might melt just the same lol)
EK Supremacy EVO Full Nickel waterblock
EK Barb fittings 3/8"
EVGA 1300 G2 psu
Some other stuff I'm probably forgetting

I also picked up a HWLabs 360GTX (also in red) and some EK Vardar fans for the test bench, for when I don't feel like insulating stuff. Forgot to buy a hard drive, gonna get a 250GB 970 evo at some point (don't need more space than that) for now the OCZ Vertex is fine. Considering their reliability, I must have the last functioning Vertex on earth lol.

Looks like everything will be here Thursday! Well, everything except the motherboard which will show up next week when I'm in Houston lol. I can try the chiller on my ancient Q9550, though. I think the waterblock will fit that far back? Maybe. I'm thinking just put water in the tank this time, and run the temp down to the dew point. It would be a good test.

I'm looking for a way to reduce the volume of the tank so I don't need to buy $75 of Vodka lol. ROCKS maybe?

Got some goodies in today from Frozen central processing unit. The polyethylene tubing wouldn't fit onto the barbs at all at first, until I hit it with the hair dryer. It's on there so tight that it doesn't even need hose clamps to not leak! It also formed into a nice romantic heart shape automatically lol. Pump is the XSPC X4 Photon 170. It has a glass res. Pretty tough to fill since there isn't an easy way for the air to escape. The top lid doesn't come off for filling like an EK D5.

I think I will get some regular PVC tubing instead. This stuff works, but will be a pain everytime I need to change something. The barbs have to be removed with pliers, and the tubing is not very flexible. PVC has an "acceptable" resistance to ethanol which is probably fine for test bench use.

Interestingly the water in the pump has warmed up to 86F just from the friction of being pumped in a loop. A good reason not to bother with two pumps in a system - it adds heat!

Can't you just use something else as the reservoir? Maybe like a modified cooler?
I'm pretty sure you're going to run into problems with any normal water cooling pump but I can't remember the exact sort of pump used for this, I've seen it in the 24/7 chill box thread but I can't find it...it's a pretty big thread to read through.
Either way I'm glad to see it's coming together.

I have a 4 gallon igloo cooler to house the evaporator. Only wanted a res on the pump so I could use it to prime the pump (i.e. not run it dry), and/or reuse it later in a regular watercooled computer. The glass res should be okay, but there is a risk of the seals in the pump leaking and possibly plastic cracking. Will find out, the pump in this thing is pretty cheap lol
