    I thought about that, the only problem would be the massive gap. Your saying a pvc pipe to fill in the gap?

    I'm saying find a pipe that matches the res diameter, and fill the space between res and panel.

    I dont know where you look first, so I post you on all the 3 thread I know you use ;)

    I have one of those.... Just a different length and from Thermaltake.
    Had a problem similar to yours a while back on my build, actually now when you mention it, I don't think I shared anything about that piece, sorry m8.

    You can see it here, screw it in from both ends and then there in the middle there is like 3 o-rings and an adjustable "nut" to tighten them with when you get the right length.

    I could seriously not fit my res and pump this way without, it's a very special type of fitting but it just works.
    Bear in mind, it can not hold up much weight, else it's going to compress on itself and slide downwards.
    I would imagine the Barrows are similar.

    Thermaltake fittings are pretty expensive in my opinion, but damn the quality is top notch on the pieces I have from them, can only recommend it.

    Yea sorry man, this is one of the many exotic pieces in my build, should probably have mentioned it - but I stumbled upon it much earlier in the process and kind of forgot about it along the way.

    I'm fairly sure it's this one I have, as far as I remember I needed something like 31,5mm length and this is the only thing possible to do that.

    Looks like the only place in the US I seem to find it is on Amazon


    Do have in mind they make a few models, different lengths, so get the right one ;)

    Ok this is Officially REALLY OFFICIALLY the final update.

    Expect pictures for final reveal on Friday, I need to take today and see if I can find or borrow a better than iphone camera, if I cant, oh well. Iphone X takes really good pictures in the light, it just suffers a little in real low light scenarios.



    So guess what? Im in love. I fell in love with that barrow (or bitspower makes it too) expandable/retractable G 1/4 fitting. It saved my ass, and fixed my leak, and my system is up and running! It took a previously difficult 2 hour fitting install at the reservoir, and turned it into a super easy, leak proof, 5 min install. I could not be happier with that fitting.

    Could not recommend to anyone any more than I am now. It is AWESOME


    The only problem I have now is GSKIL ram sucks. One of the sticks wont work. It has a mind of its own, and changes to whatever color it wants. Everything else works fine, all other lighting, including the other RAM stick, so I dont know what to do. I wish I could return it but its too late.

    Ok here are the final pics, i think it came out great, but I built it how i wanted it, so of course im going to like it..... I hope others do to, remember I went for cleanliniess first, no cables, transistors, cap banks etc. to be visible, and I wanted hidden lights and skulls. Thats what i wanted.

    Unfortunately I had to use an iphone....No DSLR. But I did go to alot of trouble to buy diffusers for some LEDs and also bought blackout paper for background. I did the best I could, and it sucks using iphone because the shots with NO outside light, all came out crappy, so I included only 1 shot with no room lighting... But the pics dont do it justice, it looks awesome in real life.
