    This is your best build yet, it's just so good.
    I was a massive fan of the previous ones but this is unbelievable. I can't remember the last time it took me this long to go through pictures.
    MOTY, and why not MOTdecade?

    Don't give up. Never give up. It just isn't beyond you if you REALLY want to do it. ;)

    Hooked up the cables for GPU and the two hard drives.

    Plenty of room here for ninety degree cables.

    [​IMG]

    Unbeknown to me at the time of making, the GPU block takes one of the four mounting holes so I can only use three. But the card is very firmly fixed with just the three screws.

    So here is the basic plumbing scheme around the two blocks.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I want to have 'hard' pipes going around to the back and then connect to plastic hose for the rest. This is purely aesthetic.

    I need some advice here though. In these photos you can see that I've had to use several extensions because 50mm seems to be the largest I can find. I need two 60mm and two 110mm extensions to make it with one part per line. Does anyone know where I can buy these or get them made?

    What a beauty Attila! About the pipes U can always try to make the pipes your self with 12mm copper pipes. If U use Bitspower Crystal link fittings(C47). But if U going to buy some at a hardware store make sure U check the O/D of the pipes before U buy them. In the US and Australia the size of the pipes is 12.7mm these wont fit in the fittings.

    Damn, that is a sweet looking case and those tubes look really great ! you should use chromed copper pipes for the rest of the build instead of normal plastic hoses.

    Love the plumbing. Now I want to see the wiring. I've been bouncing around a lot, and lurking more than I should. I'll try and be more active now :thumb:

    Stunning work as always Attila! Just wondering, have you considered doing the entire loop as hardlined nickel plated copper pipe?
