    I think it looks great.

    I see you have moved to 2011 platform. No offense but i think you should go with hard tubing from the CPU to RAM blocks or have the coolant enter the left RAM block --> CPU --> right RAM block, this way can eliminate the tube crosses from one RAM block to the second.

    Looks great Bully! Hey Tony, what about your X79 build, when are you going to start a custom water setup with that build ?

    to lazy to doing it and also if I'm using it for review then it's not suitable to do full custom WC.

    Thanks tony, any benefits of using hard tubing? I know the tube that runs from the right ram block to the left is not the best but my tubes will be longer if it goes to the left Ram block as the water is coming from my bay Res and the closest block to that is the right Ram block. Always Love to have more recommendation from the master himself

    Hard tubing make thing neater but more expensive. I was thinking of using copper pipes but you can use the acrylic extended tube as well just like the one you used for the GPU. I know it is hard to bend the tubing at short radius but if you can this flow order; right ram --> cpu --> left ram --> rad --> GPUs --> pump/res. This will make your setup is a killer.Here how you bend the tube at short radius, find a spring that is fit the tube inside it, then deep the tube/spring in boiled water then bend the tube to the radius you wanted and quickly deep in a ice bath water. The iced cold water will harden the tube, the spring helps to form its shape, five minutes later you will have a sharp bended tube. Make sure you wear work gloves or you will burn your hands.Hope you get the picture.

    Spot On!! i setup it in this way originally as you recommended: right ram --> cpu --> left ram --> rad --> GPUs --> pump/res.
    But i was way too tight and the tubes kinked so bad so i had to think of something else more manageable so it ended up in this setup. I always wondered those that used copper tubes, how does the copper tubes matched into the compression fittings? The tubes are hard and they will never fit the compression fittings right?

    Your idea on the springs is good as well but i will need to find a stainless steel spring to avoid any rusting and it will increase the number of mixed metals in my loop increase chances of the waterblocks flaking ?

    After the plastic tube is formed to the shape you want then you remove the springs, you only use the springs form the shape before you put it into the boiled water then iced water.

    As for copper pipe; you use BP SLI multi link adapter, it takes 12mm OD pipes. It has dual O-ring, all you have to do is insert the pipe into it. To work with copper pipes you need a little plumbing skill with pipe cutter and bending tools.


    Example of copper pipe setup

    Ahhhhhh so that's how it's done ! Never thought of it at all.
    Wow but looks like I have no bending skills ... And to drain those tubes is going to be a real pain?

    hard pipes are more permanent and you need to do a drainage line for easy draining. As for bending, you pipe bender tool, you can do it by hands.

    Yeah that's what i was thinking as well, the thought of bending for the first time and making mistakes is pretty high I will think hard about it but i believe this will save some $$$ in the long run
