    I think you mounted the top left top wrong, the flow wont flow with that orientation.

    Small update. I decide to go with clear acrylic tubes.

    Till now i didn't have chance to bend this kind of tubing, so I spent some time trying to get perfect bends.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    After bending I cut tubes at same size.

    [​IMG]

    I still need to bend one tube, and redo pump to first block tube.

    Standoffs with rubber. Hope this will kill hdd vibrations.

    Mounted on railing.

    New update. :D

    After short break I'm done with pipe bending.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    After a few unsuccessful tries to route pipe on right side I decide to go with this shorter, simpler but not that pretty line.

    I filled loop today to check for leaks, and to clean pipes, and blocks. Tomorrow I will fill loop again and test Mayhems blue dye. :D

    I will add some more color to get darker blue, and need to make some sound proof box for pump.

    Looking pretty.
    The sound may be more from what the pump is mounted to. A box would just overheat it.:D

    Looks grate mate but if I were you I think I'd use a smaller rad and put it inside the case.

    Thank you! :)

    I was thinking about smaller rad but somehow this option suits better for me.

    Awesome build - I must agree with what was said as well - if I were you, I would've installed the triple rad in the front or top of the case instead of outside, seeing that the wood case was completely custom built anyway.

    Why, if I may ask, did you go this route anyway?

    Nice none the less! :)
