3M VHB double sided tape. Use it for my lighting, pumps and aquaero power adjust's. Will hold just about anything. For more isolation like on my D5 pumps I stack 3 layers. http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Adhesives/Tapes/Brands/3M-VHB-Tape/

thanks, this looks like it should work.
the contact Velcro I used was a total flop, the stuff worked great for about 3 months. tongue.gif

ok, so why do I buy 25mm extensions and 50mm extensions for my builds?
well after building several different builds, I have learned pretty much all the different reasons for the tubing to collapse on a water loop.
so I will start with the 50mm extensions, I use these because I use fan shrouds on my radiators, the shrouds are 20mm thick and the fans are 25mm thick. together the length is 45mm, so I use 50mm extensions to extend the connection to the radiator beyond the fans and shrouds. then I will attach a soft 90 3-way fitting, to the end of the 50mm extension, I will attach a 3/8" X 5/8" compression fitting on the end of the soft 90 3-way fitting. completing that section of fittings that attach to the radiator. all of this is done to prevent the tubing from collapsing, if I just attached the compression fitting to the radiator and ran the tubing from there. the tubing would collapse after a few months of laying on the edge of the fan. this set of fitting will prevent this from happening. the 25mm extension are for one of the connections coming out of the back of the PC case, and the other 25mm extension, is for the connection to the out line of the pump reservoir combo.

ok, so I have these phobia 120mm fan shrouds, these shrouds have 8 X 5mm holes for led lighting. so, I am going to redesign the radiator I have on there now. by replacing one of the fan shrouds with three of the phobia fan shrouds, than I will add lighting to each of the radiators by inserting 4 X 5mm LED lights into each of the phobia fan shrouds. this should light up the outside of the build a lot, when the LED lights are on. biggrin.gif

ok, so In a effort to make maintenance on this build a little easier I am going to change the arrangement on the fans. currently the top radiator pulls air in form the bottom, and exhausts that air through the top of the radiator. cleaning the fan filters is a difficult task as there is not much room to get a hand in there to clean off the collected dust. so, I am going to reverse the direction of the fans, they will pull air in from the top, and exhaust through the bottom. this will allow for easy access to the fan filters that will now be on top of the radiator. I will do the same design style on the new radiator to be mounted off the back of the PC case. the intake will be from the far fans, and exhaust toward the PC case. again this will make for having easy access to the fan filters on that radiator as well. onto the PC case fans currently the intake is in the front of the case, and the exhaust is out the back of the PC case. the fan filters in the front of the PC case are a joke. so I am going to reverse those fans as well, and add filters to the rear PC case fans.

ok, so maintenance on this rig, it was built 6 years ago, three years ago I added the second pump because the first pump died. 4 years ago I replaced the motherboard, and DVD drive, because they got damaged. for the first two years of operation I needed to remove the inline filter and clean it. so, for the last three years I have done nothing to this build but blow out the dust from the inside of the PC case, and clean off the fan filters once a year. I have not flushed or changed the antifreeze, I have not even toped it off in three years. so, I would call this a low maintenance build.

ok, so they come in small boxes now. biggrin.gif

when the rest of the upgrades get here, I will have a better pic.
