    I have done a couple of loops now but this is my first in hard tubing. I couldn't find a place to post some pics of my new loop on an existing thread, so I thought I would just sling them in here.

    EK tubing and fittings acquired from @el2k on the marketplace, also added a waterblock for my Aquero.

    With direct cooling I can now run my fans at really low voltage. 750 RPM at 4.3V, water temp at 22 degrees. Cool and quiet.

    Will shortly stick the solid panel back on her and stick in the cupboard.

    Is that a custom printed fan grill?! I love where you've put the pump/res combo. :D

    Yes it is. Designed it myself.

    I wanted the res up high to make the whole system easy to fill / empty / bleed. The whole flow is designed to be push air through the loop in hopefully the most efficient manner.

    Thanks, yes printed it myself. It came out really nice and is rock solid even in PLA. I can upload the file if anyone is interested.

    Oh boy... I have a horrible temptation to ask you to design one for me and print it for some spendy stuff. :D

    Ask away, drop me a pm with what you are after. You might be better off get it printed locally but more than happy to build you a STL file.
