    Still planing the tubing route but I think I got it already... will update with final picture!
    I've shorten some tubes already, this was just for testing.

    Thanks! :)

    I did some work tonight, not the best picture so please forgive me!

    [​IMG]

    I was planing how to connect the top radiator to the Aquaero 5 since I bought the waterblock aswell... Loop is getting busy!

    I couldnt just "throw" a pipe down because other devices will interfere with the fittings / tubing so I had to reroute the loop outside the 5 1/2 "cage"

    My friend Michael inspired me with his holes for wire management! Thank you barfastic :)

    [​IMG]

    It was really hard to measure from the inside to make it a perfect straight "pipe"...

    [​IMG]

    Measurement was done from the inside but the hole must be done from the other side because my drill is way too big to do it from the inside!

    [​IMG]

    DONE, fingers crossed...

    [​IMG]

    Outside looks good, not sure if I was accurate enough...

    [​IMG]

    Just perfect!

    [​IMG]

    Very happy with the result!
    Now need to repeat the process at the Aquaero 5 bay...

    [​IMG]

    Done!
    Now I need to link the holes, I will build a bitspower bridge! :D:D

    More tomorrow :)

    Hey dude, i'm glad to see more spaniards here. I haven't see you before, maybe I know you from some lanparty? How old are you boy? I'm being a old dog... I don't know anything about new generations.

    I like your project, you have some interesting ideas and a lot of attention to details :thumb:

    Hello cmd_!
    I don't know you, but I have seen your work in the past!

    I'm 29 and I haven't been to any lanpartys :)

    Thank you for the nice words!
    I love your work :)

    Thank you everyone for the nice comments!

    I've installed the bitspower bridge... let me show you!

    [​IMG]

    Some fittings to make the bridge

    [​IMG]

    All together... now into the case

    Perfect fit!

    I would only use Crystal Link if I was going to use dye but I'm not... Also I don't have any of the crystal links or fittings so that would be another order and moreee waiting hehe.

    Maybe a future revision will have dye + crystal links for instance :)

    I feel ok doing the loop this way since I'm not using many 90º adapters... just 5 for the whole loop and I've seen some tests and the restriction is not an issue at all...

    oh, i didnt mean the 90's, i meant that you are using the "bottom" port of the radiator... What about on the other side? do u have both ports in use?

    Oh got you now.
    No, I'm not using any of the other ports, there is only 1 inlet and 1 outlet connected to each radiator :)

    Just went through the whole thread in one go, definitely worth the read! Thank you for sharing your amazing build. I'm a bit sad that you didn't manage to finish though but I'm loving the progress, shouldn't be too far from the finishing line now right?

    Pure overkill though! But I don't think I've seen a system that isn't overkill on here yet haha.
