Love the tilted GPU build. I had originally wanted to do that in mine but the damn card was just too big. I couldn't even mount it traditionally because it extended out past the glass. So was stuck with a vertical mount whether I liked it or not lol But in a world of pre-made components it's good to see some original thinking from time to time.

I'm still struggling with getting proper bends in for the copper pipe build that I'm doing at the moment (figures I go straight from soft tubing to copper pipes, because I just had to not follow the stream...). No matter how I do them they end all wavy on the inside of the bend. Part of me just wants to throw it all out and go ZMT instead.

Edit: Have you considered ordering directly from EK? they should offer international shipping, though they might be a slight bit more expensive than PPCS if you live in the US.
I would but PPCs has free shipping this go round. And St. Pats is next holiday for discount. I will have the funds by then am hoping. I'll just bend for both PE and SE in the SE location(s) so I can simply drain and refill after swapping out. I've got 12' of White Acrylic so I know I have enough to do that with some to spare should I nerf a bend or three. lulz

Kinda takes the fun out of it for me. I do get it. Not everyone feels competent enough to throw down some solid bends and connect them from block to block. But OMLord, how many "Professionals" are out there and not a single one of them puts out(or in rare instances) something that took time to bend. Fittings, fittings and fittings and just because you like fittings we made you a fitting to hold your fittings.

I get it. Newbies(I am one on many occasions so yeah) who wish to watercool and don't wish to deal with the mercurial plasticizer issue and have no idea where to begin and so they run straight lines with gobs of fittings. I get it. If that's all you pretty much see in any given scene, you go with what works.

My Black Snow build has been on the back burner due to funding and life. But tis the building season and my carts are ready to go. I've got about 20 fittings for my Parallel loop in my PPCs cart. Pump/Res Body and a Vario for the XL that I will be getting. I have the Radiators, but had intended to pick up another PE 360 so I could put one of the SE 360s in my old build and one in Snow with two PE Rads. Sadly PPCs EK Radiator fare runs on the thin side. Iirc the same thing happened last year and I had to wait forever to get my kit from them because I had them wait for a back ordered Radiator. Duke and the gang were real champs for holding onto the order until then. They certainly could've said no. I wouldn't hold it agin em.

So yeah, Case order and GPU Bracket? Check!
Sleeving and Cable management PT I? Check!
Cable management PT II? Check!

Just counting down the minutes til I can get this build further off the ground.

@Pepillo : The build looks nice and clean, and I actually sort of like that its messy in the back. The solid side panel exists to hide the "work area" while the window shows what should be shown to the public. I woluld perhaps advice you to get some cheap zip ties so that you can clean up the back area and make it easier to work on if need be.

Not too shabby though.

Pepillo I know, and I put it, it's not perfect, but I'm proud to be a beginner ....
