Took me forever to edit this, but I took a look at your previous post with the pic you took. That picture looks fine. When you bend any material under either heat or stress, the corner will deform a little. You get that slight flatness at the back of the bend, but as long as you don't have bulges at the sides or folds on the inner radius, it is a good bend. Keep doing what you are doing, and seeing the water you use to lubricate the insert boiling is a good indication you are getting close to bending time.

And yeah, I started with acrylic too. Apparently PETG is easier, shame on us, eh?


Thanks, I'll keep on it. I decided specifically against PETG because acrylic has more clarity. I guess it's also tougher working with.

I was aiming for low maintenance and quiet running, with decent cooling. EK ZMT for the soft tube, Mayhems XT-1 Nuke in the fluid, extra thic 420mm rad

That looks like a nice clean and quiet build, what with 140mm fans and extra thick 420mm rad....also nice that you didn't go overboard with RGB fans and strips everywhere. Btw, I really like the TT Core P5 for aesthetic as well as air-flow reasons, not too mention more flexibility for customization. I have had my Core P5 for about a year, with zero problems.

TL;DR - nothing wrong with almost any company now-a-days. Pick what aesthetically works for you and fits your budget because honestly, most products are just getting sourced from other companies anymore.
- AFAIK Bitspower, EK and Watercool, to name just a few, do their own manufacturing
- Neither Bykski nor Barrow are "sister companies" of Bitspower, even if they offer products that look similar at a lower price. As to the quality, you get what you pay for. As for supporting the ripoff artist instead of the creator, we each live by our own set of principles.
- Outsourcing production is not wrong or reproachable. Rebranding/rebadging is legally and morally acceptable because the creator/manufacturer gets compensated. Using other people's intellectual property without paying for it is the hallmark of a scumbag. I refuse to buy TT products because I don't want my money going to pirates, even if their targets have no legal recourse against them.

They are not innovative company, they live of other companies hard work and still from them e.g. Fractal, Caselabs, Cooler Master and more, pretty much all companies you name it, that's why their products are cheap because they didn't design them to begin with, you want to support that, knock yourself out
Their C-pro fittings are kind of revolutionary. Same with the Tower they have. Also, they were one of the first to introduce the RGB fan settings with the Trio's.

Let's be real. Everyone is just re-inventing the wheel. All of the companies have a lack of ingenuity and they end up just ripping each other all off.
If you have a problem with TT PSU's, well. They're probably not the manufacturer and it's probably the same junk that's in almost 80% of the consumer market because they all get outsourced anyways.

I'm not biased towards any one company. I wouldn't personally pick TT stuff because they aren't of the best quality, not the cheapest, not the most expensive. They're decent across the board.

First acrylic bend

My first acrylic bend. It seems I spent an eternity over the heat gun at 500F. Water boiled for a few minutes before the tube started to give in, and it was painful to touch. The bend ended up a little flat on top, probably not enough length heated, but looks decent. Overall, I feel good about it.

For me Corsair fans are totally garbage(except ML series) ,and still many ppl using them
Hi,
Didn't stop thermalfake from coping D750 garbage design lol
Case is a case frankly but I'd never buy one of theirs.

Tried an clc/ aio it was complete garbage, software was a joke returned for refund the next day.
