Wait, so its going to keep its form? like the way copper tubing would?
Yes it will keep its shape. You won't get bends as tight as copper. But you can straighten out tubing and get get decent enough 90 degree bends if done right.

As long as his water temps don't get too high :)

BTW I think I see what his next target is... Mobo 8 pin cable. It looks so scraggly and out of place in this beauty.
I got a lot of wiring yet to do. Very much procrastinating this part.

Pulled it out of the closet tonight. Going to be quite a few changes. The big one being it will no longer be a 2P system. Think I can still do the case some justice though.

you mean to say you've removed what I believe is/was the same Asus Z9PE-D8 WS I've been eyeballing myself lately?

Yes. CPUs are not fast enough to game with for me. And the Z9pe-d8 is a horrible workstation or server board. It is being replaced with a better featured and much smaller Supermicro board. But it will be going in a different case.

Going to be using the top radiator after all. Going way overkill on the rads this time. Pulled the fans from another build that I doubt I'll ever finish.

Did a quick move job on the 24-pin.


Going to need some repairs and definitely going to need lengths adjusted. Have to wait for reservoir though.


Backside. Can't really work on cleaning up the cables until I get the reservoir, board, and PSU in here.


Hopefully I can find some nice black countersunk m4 screws as this looks kinda goofy.


Thinking about throwing this 3 drive cage down here to fill up some of the space. Even though I haven't used SATA in my main machine for a long while. Also depends on where I am going to put the pump. Haven't figured that out yet.


Hopefully I can recycle some of these. The GPU cables are meant to be used w/ the double stack GTX680 power connector. Their lengths will pretty much only fit them. Will have to wait and see what next gen cards will use.

Cleaned off all the stickers from the power supply.


Definitely looks better naked. Having the PSU facing up makes cable management significantly easier for this build.


Sleeved the rear fan.




Straightened out the 24-pin a bit. Quite a bit of slack that needs to be taken care off.


Spent all day working on the 24-pin. Cleaned it up significantly, only a few more wires need to get done. Hopefully work will be dead again tomorrow so I can finish.
