Hers my rig. I custom made all the cables, super clean without any balls of wires shoved behind the motherboard.

I have been wanting to go to hard acrylic lines and water cool the video cards (Probably switch them out to 980's if I do) but have been too busy building rigs for other people to do much with mine.

Specs:
Intel i7 4930K
Asus Rampage IV Extreme black Edition
G.Skill 32GB (4x8GB) DDR2400c10
Samsung 840 pro 512GB
2x 2TB WD Black
2x eVGA 780ti classified cards + aluminum back plates
eVGA lighted SLI bridge
Corsair 900D case
Corsair AX1200i power supply
8x SP120 / 4x AF120 /1x AF140 Corsair quiet edition fans
Swiftech Apogee HD CPU water block
Swiftech MCP35x2 pump
Swiftech MCR420-XP quad 120mm radiator
Primochill CTR 250 res.

I suck with pictures: [pic]
Looks great, always been a fan of the black/white combo. What coolant are you using? Looks like coconut water! :biggrin:

The res is frosted itself, its just filled with distilled water and a few drops of PT nuke. Planned on adding a white LED tube to light the whole res up but ultimately decided against it to keep it clean/simple.

Ah I gotcha, didn't realize the res was frosted.

Sweet! I have the same case and color combo and I'm running the same kind of coolant. I've actually added some glycerin to the mixture to act as a water wetter.

You have to be careful it does not react with the tubing, many will have the flex agent weep onto the inner surface. The only thing I have found that didn't have issues was Swiftechs coolant, I've used it in Tygon and Primochill tubing.

Yeah, I've been using the distilled water/glycerin combo with Tygon tubing for years. Everything's in great shape and the coolant stays crystal clear.

Not a 15k rig but more normal...

i7, gtx670 and supporting pieces to use with some cheap dual ips monitors and a mechanical keyboard.

How hard was it to bend the tubing? The DIY's I've seen look deceptively easy. I want to switch over but really have been too busy to touch my own system.

It definitely takes a little bit of practice but it's not very difficult. Buy more than you think you need and be patient, especially when heating it.

Margin of error is much smaller than soft tubing (we're talking millimeters) before it pops out of the fitting (I think it might be because the Bitspower fittings are much more lower profile than other, I'm not sure). So take your time.

The most frustrating part for me was the manufacturing variances between the tubing and the silicon strip used for bending (your mileage may vary). It was a really tight for me so getting it into the tube was a struggle. Lots of soapy water and twisting is the key to success.

Is the connection solid? Not big on friction seals. I go to LAN events fairly often and it would be a disaster if they popped off while moving the machine.

It's solid enough so that it won't pop out from side to side movement but it will come off if you pull on it.

The only thing holding the tube in is the compressed O-Ring when the fitting is tightened. Compared to soft-tubing where the actual tube is compressed, the connection is not as solid but it's still water-proof.

Well I'm joining what's left of you. Just bought the new family PC/gaming rig.

AMD FX 6300 black edition
AMD R9 280X
8GB DD3 Ripjaw system memory
500gb HDD
25" HP monitor
Logitech G510 keyboard
Logitech G602 mouse

I'll get pics up soon. Not quite like most of the rigs on here but for $570 for everything not a bad setup.

So are all the pretty lights on your case and whatever still cool or nah? Just wondering what the overall norm is these days. Seems like a lot of people are going to silent cases.

I'm still playing on my old Lenovo y510p with dual GTX 755M's, but I'm hoping to build a gaming beast pretty soon. I'll definitely be back with that.
