The copper pipes are 12mm and they fit perfect
I hadn't even payed on bit of attention to those fittings. I wanted to go hard-lined on the case I'm working on, but didn't like the size of the Koolance g1/4" to copper fittings. I have a feeling I may be ordering some of these shortly.

What kind of pipe bender are you using?

I am using a basic banding tool

can buy it at any iron shop i think
But if u want to make short u turns for you're pipes then i advise u to buy a other type of bender

with this piece u can make u turns mine is only good L turns
If u want to install the pipes on the bitspowder fittings it is best to sand the edge of so u don't damage the rubber sealing.

Hope this will help u to fer fill you're modding ideas ^^

What impresses me is the cutting on the metal work, what are you using? as the the cuts are detailed and clean. I hope you say dremel trio as I just bought one

Fantastic ideas, real food for thought on my TJ07

Copper pipes!? That's even more original, and we all know that the heat dissipation of copper is great, that's going to be one good looking, hell of a waterloop!

Fortunately (or unfortunately) I am no stranger to working with copper pipe. Redoing all of the inlet plumbing in my house a number of years ago plus other projects has given me more experience that I want!

The last hard-lining I did, I just used pieces of tubing to join the copper ends to barbs on the blocks, but that really looks kind of sloppy. The Koolance fittings are just too long to me. I would never use copper tubing without cleaning up the ends, but it is a good idea to put that info here for anyone unfamiliar.

I've got tubing bender almost exactly like the one you have posted at the bottom, but it doesn't work very well at bending even soft copper without kinking. This was using 1/2" hard copper and 5/8"OD soft copper. It is hard to get a bend past an "L" with it. I've got a larger tubing bender that I bought that I haven't really used yet. I've got to see how well it works. If I go copper with the build I'm working on, I would have to use fittings as the bends are probably too tight. I really like hardlining because you don't have that stupid plasticizer to worry about, you can route the tubing exactly where you want it to go, and can paint it to match whatever you want.

Thx PAL
That polishing is already on the plan after the polish they will get nickel d so it gets the same colors as the water blocks.


Update 11

This week and weekend i finished of some pieces.
The Mid plate, bay holders and a extra plate on the back of the motherboard tray for cable management
I didn't take a lot of pictures of all the work because my GF had taken the camera to go to the sea with here Friend
So u only get the end result of it
Here are the finished bay holders



Completed the mid plate


Made a hole so that the fan of the HDD can pull some fresh air from the button of the case


then a made a extra plate for my cable management behind the motherboard tray to keep all the cables at there places.




made mounting holes for the rad mount and placed everything back together




The black fans will be changed with white fans from silverstone.




A few more thing i can do when that is finished i will have to wait for my order.
Common Aqua Computer speed up the production

This a real clean looking mod. I love the solid pipe work. Nice one dude.
Is that standard 15mm pipe your using and if so what fittings. I've always wanted to do a solid pipe cooling system but have never been able to find the right fittings.

Can you bend pipes with that tool without any filling (sand for instance) ?

Fantastic. Coming along very nicely. Come to think about it, wouldn't noticeably lower temps be achieved using that copper piping as opposed to usual silicon or tygon tubing?
