Blackops_2 Approaching the 1.5-year mark on this rig and my primary hasn't even moved lol. Gotta change liquid soon, gotta give it to mayhems i've not had any issue with his X1 coolant. Still primarily finishing rifles and such. Especially now that we in the states are looking at gun bans. That said in the next month or so i hope to move to an RX480 in the primary and switch to an enthoo evolv, simultaneously putting it on water. And moving the 780 Classy into this rig and increasing rad space.

Just a benching run, not wild about that temp but didn't honestly expect to be able to contain all that on the rad space i have with SP120s. Going to see if i can stabilize it and how hot it gets gaming, maybe try to back off some vcore.

Blackops_2 Just an update it's been 8 months and mayhems still looks great, and i haven't seen any sort of plasticizer issues or anything yet. I have noticed my tubing is a little less clear and has a yellowish hue from it. Going to give a couple more months then probably disassemble and clean, maybe switch to acrylic.

Wolfsbora Since they are fully curved bends and not 90 degrees they maintain diameter. Meaning that you'll see negligible flow restriction from it. So that is also a plus.

Blackops_2 Thanks again Wolfs! I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out honestly. Though the bends and such were actually against the plan lol. I had planned to have the 120mm on the bottom and run straights everywhere. I was going to go from the pump to the 240mm, to the 120mm on the bottom then to the GPU and then a straight to the 360mm up top then to the CPU, then res and back. The bends don't bother me at all though.

The LED light might be a tad bright, lol i wiped everything down with some acetone zeiss wipes i use for optics and there is too much shine. LED lights are reflecting off the tubing, still looks good though. Just need to blackout the wires and box for the cathode.

Wolfsbora Man, I like this build. There is something about the short tube runs that you did that I really like, particularly the run from the rear rad to the GPU. Awesome work!

Blackops_2 Added a 12" cold cathode for some lighting, don't like the color of the little adaptor or the wires, might plasti-dip them or duplicolor them black.

Blackops_2 Thanks Wolfs i'm very satisfied with how it turned out!
