    Those are nice Jack, yeah if we have to go then you go and take what we have on a list but if you get 30 minutes to evac were taking the pc. We had multiple fires very close to us last year. Now one person can grab it before it was two person and if you dropped it you had 2 liters of water in there so that would be very bad (unless you're on fire I guess ). My gpu's are so long they would not fit with that res even in a primo. I have to put them in diagonal in the R5 to clear the cage. I want to do a hardline build at some point though, i'm keeping all the water gear stored away.

    Here is the other computer. Phanteks EnthooPrimo. No problems with video cards. The right reservoir took a little finagling to miss the video card. I don't need two reservoirs; I just put it in to balance the look with the other reservoir.


    Hard tubing does take a lot of time.

    Thank you fdegrove. I proud of both computers.
    In two or three years I will build a new one. It takes me that long to save enough money.

    It's really not hard to do hard tubing as long as you plan ahead and take your time.

    Getting all the tubes lever and plum did take a lot of trial and error. Therefore buy more tubing than you need because you will make mistakes. Another thing I learned on my last system; clear tubing bends easier than colored tubing.

    When one has the free time like I do, just do it.
    You can't tell from the pictures but I can remove things like the ram without removing the tubing.
    Once you go hard tubes you will not go back to soft tubing.
    It's worth the work.

    Yeah that's beautiful Jack, I would not be able to put my case in the closet if it was that tall though (Priorities ). That must weight a lot with 39lb starting weight.

    Very nice, Jack! Love the tubing, very impressive!

    Are you gonna tackle glass tubing in your next rig?

    No reason to put what I build in a closet. I like showing off my systems to Helen the cat.
    I will use nothing but hard tubing. You have to do your homework.
    Things like figuring out the size and space need for your build.
    Lots of time figuring what fittings to buy.
    I don't use a lot of 90 and 45 degree fittings. I didn't want to look like nothing but fittings. Then that is all one sees.
    Plus they cost a lot.
    Planning, measuring and drawing lot of picture, so things fit.
    You must have a easy way to fill and drain the system. The damn drain petcock is very costly. It took me weeks of research and planning just to figure out what to buy to make sure it all worked together. That is part of the fun. DON'T GET IN A HURRY.

    Yup that's the drain I do have. It's in a closet as I do not have space otherwise for it to be out in the room. The day I hardline it will be when I have space to show it.
