Jsunn Here is how I made those 180 degree bends. I would measure the total outside distance for the tube routing. I would then set a jig at that distance. The most important thing is to evenly heat the tube, as you bend it. As you bend it, you can see where you need to add more heat.

I use the same method for the "S" bend as well.
For the longer runs I also measured the total outside distance, and set the jig at that distance. I would then do each 90 degree bend one at a time.

The next part that was difficult was to get each leg the correct length. I just used the top of the fitting to get the legs trimmed to the right length. Since you already got the bend done, you just need the relative hieght of the fittings to get the proper length. You want to make sure that the tube is fully seated in both fittings when it is installed.

Jsunn Made some updates to the build.
Here are some pics of the updates.

So far doing intake bottom and side, exhaust top.

Considering doing 2 separate loops though due to overclocked i9 7900x .

Thanks for all the help👍

Nice Job!
Looks really good.
I'm getting an inch to rebuild mine.
hmmm..... ;-)

Since you are water cooling, the CPU temps are controlled by the loop.
To be honest, I don't think that it will make any measurable difference.
Things like overall temp of the room the PC is in, duration of the load you are putting on it and fan speed will have greater impact.
That is my two cents.
Not sure if it helps, but feel free to ask any other questions.

Your prob right about room and load having most to say.
Fan speed have diminishing returns over a certain percentage, more important is how good the fan is to push air through a radiator, wich noctua is very decent at. Could have gone the higher ones, but it's just to much noise for the little benefit
Room I got it in has never more then 20 degrees so there I'm just fine

Might try both intake and exhaust to check what works best, thought prob don't matter that much as you say..

Cleaning I deff get is easier that way, as you have positive preassure. My only concern was that you blew hot air into case so that it didnt give you better or possibly gave you horse temps due to hotter enviroment for CPU etc to work in.

Did you try both and check temps?

If you are doing a set of fans below the floor, consider raising the case with feet a bit to make sure that you are allowing them room to breathe.

Did you get better temps and less dust doing intake on top?
It was easier to me to be able to clean the dust filter. Plus to me it makes more sense to draw cool air directly into the rad instead of having the "hot" case air being pushed through the rad. The air in the case can get as high at 35 deg C. I had a temp probe installed in the case. That is why I made the change.
Some might say that I am going against convection (hot air rising) but I think at this scale and size, convection is really counter acted by fans .

Doing all out noctua chromax and halo lux for led. Skipped out on corsair fans due to performance and noise.
I'm not sure I'd choose the Corsair fans again. The do OK, but I believe there are better ones out there. If I were to do it again, I'd go the route you are, good fans with the Phanteks Halo Lux.

Nice work!
