    Thank you my friend, hopefully the build will be finishe dsoon... at least is what I think!
    Update time:

    [​IMG]

    I've managed to hardpipe with bitspower fittings from the wall adapters to the Aquaero 5 waterblock

    Bitspower puzzles!

    Done!

    Finally I had to use some extra bitspower fittings as "spacers" because It was impossible to use 19/13 fittings (they were way too big and the waterblock screws were intefering)

    I think some crystal link to finish the connection would look good, but since I'm not using any dye I will stick to fitting + tubing to close the loop (from Aquaero 5 to the reservoir)

    Thank you my friend.

    I had to change the loop a bit because the black tubing was collapsing.
    I'm having troubles to link the RAM blocks with the CPU and because of that I had to use longer tubes so different route :)

    I will try to post some pic later!

    I assume that means you are trying to hard pipe to the RAM? No chance you will flex pipe it?

    No, I will still use the black tubing, but I will have to connect them in a different way...
    It will not look that "pretty" but the tube will not collapse...

    Lovely stuff.

    I am getting an Aquaero 5 XT, too, with the watercooling block aswell. Eager to see how much more ooomph it will bring to the game.

    What size of bitspower fittings did you use for the Aquaero block? I've just ordered me one and not sure of the fitting sizes to order

    BTW- magnificent work as ever

    Waterblock for the AQ5 is a must because it get very hot, the bad part is how to integrate it into the loop hehe

    You can't use 19 / 13 fittings (1/2 - 3/4) because they are not going to fit, you need to use some extensors.

    so is it the 1/4" long ones to fit the block then attach to usual fittings? I only have 19/13 fittings on my stuff so bit unsure of which ones to get

    You could use some spacer for the inlet or outlet of the block and use a 45º rotary adapter for example on the other side, that would also work.

    If you try to fit 2 x 19/13 fittings together then they are going to touch the bolts of the block and it's not possible to fit them.

    thanks- I think I get what you are saying:duh::confused::D
    I'll wait to the block turns up and see how I am going to route the loops on this one.
    Keep up the good work!!:rock:

    Hope this helps, if you need anything drop me a line :)

    I'm waiting for some critical parts to finish the build, while waiting I will show you how my EK reservoir is going to look...

    Looks soooo sweet.

    I just wish that tube reservoirs made from extruded acrylics weren't so prone to cracking. :-/

    This is great work.

    I'm hoping to do something similar in the near future. Where do you order your Bitspower fittings from? I'm finding it difficult to find a retailer in the UK or Europe who can supply the full range of their products.

    Please don't use this. Go for an aquacomputer aqualis. A premium build deserves a premium reservoir :) .
