Ironsmack Upgraded to X399 a few weeks ago.

Im redoing the res backplate to an aluminum sheet or steel + moving to 16mm fittings/tubing, adding combs in the next 2 months or so.

I checked my few year old print catalog and they have many sizes of PETG and Acrylic tubing. You should see this thing, its about 5,000 pages, weighs about 10lbs, and has 600,000 products. Their warehouse looks like the scene at the end of 'Raiders of the lost Ark' its so big. And before you ask, no... you can't go explore the place. They do have a will-call to pickup orders from tho.

That website looks more like its for home and commercial repair, instead of PC water cooling materials. But I think I see your point on the PETG tubing. I ended up at Micro Center to get just that. The PETG... Because that's all they had available on my list of things to get. It's definitely a place you'd want to bring a $1000 to for side spending.

The amount of cases they sell rivals that of Fry's Electronics, but with several water cooling exotic brands, Fry's wouldn't normally carry. Their monitor section is like going to Best buy, and they have several grocery store isles of graphic cards and mother boards to choose from... They were lacking on water cooling fittings and cable management supplies - two items I needed, but overall definitely worth the trip.

I know their an electronics store but I'm just surprised a brick/mortar would even consider stocking specialty items like watercooling stuff. Pretty easy to start walking around and end up leaving with more items than you planned on spending! It's another reason why I do the online order, then bee-line to the "internet order" checkout desk so as not to even tempt myself with their various goodies. And unlike they Fry's around here, the staff is nicer and seems more knowledgeable from my experiences.

I've returned at least 60% of the stuff I get from there. Microcenter is my favorite go-to for emergency items, and if you order online and select in-store pickup, you don't have to wait in the checkout line. In and out in 10 minutes. Wish it was closer and I'd probably use it more often. They have a pretty impressive selection for watercooling stuff.
