The rigid tubing does look really nice.. but I hate it every time I want to make a little change to my system. I've done it twice now and I'm thinking about trying the soft tubing out on the next build.

Depending on how bad your OCD is it really isn't much different once you have some practice. I think my first hardline build took me 3 days... my last one (with same number of components) took less than 2 hours. Like anything YMMV - but once you get over the hurdle of thinking in 3d and what order you need to do the bends on a complex segment... it really flies.


Still not as fast as a soft tube obvioulsy... but so much easier for some things - and I think the look and clean airflow paths are worth it.


This was the 'blitz' bend build... not as good as I'd like but close enough. Only one I had to rebend was the short run from GPU to CPU... that's a 3 bend run (2 + offset) in a short length. The others were cake.

Not a fan of AlphaCool, but that is a pretty clean tubing run.

Hopefully my all EK build will be THAT clean.

I am really starting to feel my Oats as a long time member of OCN. Why did we go back to this system again?

Thanks.

I'm not a fan either - but I do like to use their radiators. Despite not being the very top in performance, they're very good, and I prefer the lower fin count to aid in general case airflow at lower fan speeds. I also love all the ports... makes the runs easier - although in this case it wouldn't have mattered much - but the bottom drain port is a nice convenience.
Sure they're a pain to flush well enough, and the new logos are an eyesore. But after the nightmares I've had with the EK rads turned me off to them.
On blocks however, it's all EK or Watercool in my builds.

I agree, different block layouts etc so gotta change it all. I run double GPUs now and would have gone for a 2080ti but that means i gotta redo my entire GPU loop and my Caselabs SMA8 would look empty.

Made some upgrades today with some new parts and rebuilt my loop as I was changing parts anyway.

WC Ryzen 7 3800X with Alphacool.

Changed the waterblock for a Eisblock XPX -with sandblasted plexi look.
Added a water temperature sensor and ball-valve for easier drainage.

then I just remodelled the layout as I wasn't really happy how cramped it was before, removed two of the smaller 120 single radiators for now.

I also bought a waterblock for the memory but found it a hassle to remove the heatspreaders and was worried of breaking them so I'll wait with that for some other time.
Rebuild took the whole day as parts didn't want to fit where I wanted them, had to rethink several times how I would like to have it all together.

The bold - agreed. I like the look of the tubing. It's nice and straight without the OCD mechanical 90° angles that, to me, take away from otherwise nice builds. In other words, I prefer bends in tubing to using fittings at every bend. Nice job.

I like it. I too find things don't want to fit where I want them to go, as do many of is I suppose. I also find that what I thought was a great idea sometimes turns out to be a moment and I wonder what was I .

Not the prettiest, but this is my first attempt at running 3/8 soft copper, hand bent ... 30hrs leak test

I'm not quite happy... But it will work till I can get the proper tools and run it in 1/2 OD soft copper hard line.

Aren't there any fittings for regular copper pipes around? It takes it a little away from the looks with those "stock" fittings unless you have everything to match in a industrial/pipe setting. (even the blocks)

Smallest I could find on performance-pcs was for 1/2 OD Rigid Compression.

I don't mind industrial per se. This will have to do for a couple months lol.
