here is my friend's rig. every weekend he needs to have a project with it - usually to do with his watercooling.
he is obsessed about copper, having so much of it lying about he crafted himself CPU block, NB block, GPU block, VDDA block, he used to have a custom made watercooled RAM heatsinks where copper pipes wealded to copper plates hugged RAM chips - it was taken out when he realised that new DIMMs dont have removable heatspreaders. recently his software fan controller was overheating in horisontal position so he crafted a copper plate for it also. at the front bottom there is a watercooled sound isolating box for 2 raptors having its own custom made cooling solution where copper pipes are huging them. all this is cooled by ultra quiet 38mm Sythe fans blowing through two 240x120 radiators all attached to the rig - one on top & another through the back. overall the rig is silent as this is what he was trying to achieve.
so what do you think in regard to his first ever build?

it is thin but the guy didnt even read any of the guides on how to build a water rig. he literally just used his common sence. tube is just something he found in garage i think. u see he only uses what he finds around him - its a challenge to make things work.
The barbs being copper I wouldn't feel good using clamps or zip-ties so I think it's fine the way it is. Great DIY build. I wish I had more metal-working experience to build custom brackets and all that.
