I purchased the Alphacool at christmas. Haven't bent my tube yet. A bit apprehensive because I know the hard tubing makes liquid cooling much more of a pain.
Nope. You strip wallpaper with steam; you strip paint with heat
Also the mirrored image at the top of the article offends my OCD
Yes, but hardline tubing looks so much neater and cooler than traditional bendy tubing
Interesting to see it looks like the entry level B&D has had most use out of those Alex.
Gah yes you’re right, we did a lot of house remodelling recently and I mind blanked and wrote the wrong one, will slip the correct one in there haha.
Will have to just live with the mirrored image though
That’d be because it’s just ooooooold haha, no doubt was thoroughly abused before I ever picked it up. Only had the Bosch for about 8 months so it’s still pretty pristine.
I've always found them very cumbersome and weak compared to my soldering station's hot air tool. It's certainly better for close-in detailed work.
Agree. I have seen some pro mod builds still using bendy though but I agree the straight looks better. Bendy tubing is cloudy. I guess I have to get over my anxiety and fit the hard tube sometime.
It probably should be mentioned that the insides of all of these are generally the same China-tastic junk, and the antique B&D is far sturdier than any model they have available now.

You can also remove wallpaper with heat if you apply enough of it.
Not when I do bendy tubing.
Yes, billet aluminium hose separators. I introduced those to PC modding.
Hopefully this will help https://www.bit-tech.net/guides/mod...ith-hardline-tubing-guide-petg-and-acrylic/1/
