    Hey guys,

    I have some more fittings to show, this time some extensions. Thanks a lot to Hugh from mydiy.com.au for helping out with these Barrow fittings. You can check out his eBay store HERE with some good prices on fittings.

    Not sure if I will use all of them yet but they will definitely come in handy for all the small tight corners in this build. I also need some spots to be really strong so just tubing won't do. Will make sure to show once ready.

    Thanks for checking it out.

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Hey guys!

    Here are the awesome cables from Icemodz! Thanks a lot to Mundi for making and sending me this kit. It's made from nice flexible paracord sleeve and should fit nicely in the system. Make sure to check out the icemodz.com website for all your custom cable and LED needs.

    Hey guys,

    Here's another update on this build! Most of the fittings and cables are now in and it's ready for tubing up! Just wanted to give you guys a quick look inside before tubing up.

    [​IMG]

    That chrome colored fittings is the only straight rotary fittings that I had. Once the front radiator is in that fittings is not seen.

    [​IMG]

    You can also see the LED strips are in, these are UV LEDs from Icemodz.

    Not sure if you notice but I bent a piece of acrylic around the 80mm fans and also around the 140mm fan, thought it cleans things up a bit.

    Hey guys!

    Here it is, tubing all done! The hard tubing used is 1/2" Primochill PETG. First time I've used PETG tubing over acrylic and it's awesome!

    So easy to use, heats up and bends much quicker and then can just cut the ends of with a tube cutter :)

    Let me know what you think of the bends, tried to keep tubing to a minimum.

    So tight for the 24pin!

    [​IMG]

    Pretty much leaning on the fan. Lucky it's on the back of it so, it's still able to spin.

    Thanks for checking it out! I should have final pics up in a few days, will get it filled and install Win 10 on it. Will be my first PC with Win 10 on it.

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Personally I would've preferred a 90 degree angle between the 120 rad and the GFX card, but apart from that it looks really nice :thumb:

    Thanks man :D

    I considered that too but it would come over the CPU area and also get really close to the tube from the 240 rad, wouldn't not have looked good :)

    Hey guys,

    Here it is, last update! The Toxic Chrome build is finally finished!

    Hope you've enjoyed this build logs and like the finished build!

    I would like to say thanks again to all my sponsors for this project! Primochill for the awesome fittings and PETG tubing, MNPCTECH for all the modding supplies that came in very handy and of course Icemodz for the custom sleeved cables and LED strips, without them all the neat cable management would not have been possible! Also thanks to GGF Lan Party for kindly donating the Corsair 250D case :)

    The coolant used is Mayhems X1 Clear UV Blue, love the effect it gives, completely clear under normal light and blue under UV!

    Hope you guys like the UV effect and if anyone is wondering about the red light, it's from the motherboard and can be turned off in the bios. I took these pics before hooking it up to a monitor and tinkering with it.

    Time to start a new project for the Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitaional Season 2, hope to see you all there and here is a sneak peak!

    Thanks for checking out my build log!

    Cheers,

    Alex
