J M, I've been thinking on using hard plumbing like that (good to see I'm not crazy) but I haven't been able to come up with how to get from the hard plumbing to the block. A direct method isn't good as if things aren't perfectly lined up then it could cause the block to not sit flat, so thet pretty much necessitates the use of a flexible connection. I've come up with a few ideas but nothing I'm crazy about, one idea is to solder barbs on the end of the copper pipe and the other is to machine my own out of copper but that's A LOT of time. Could you elaborate on hoe you handled this?

It looks like he's used 1/2" OD pipe with 1/2" barbs, and used a short length of PVC tubing to connect the two.

And here's the end result:

I love supreme block - the most handsome block for me. Too bad is was discontinued and not available any more. Nice pictures of UV lights and tube!

Figured I should post my two rigs in here too. I never went fancy or worried about looks...just wanted a setup that cooled well and had room to add to the loop later on. All contained within the case (both rigs are HAF 932s)

#1 - My main rig. GPU cooling was the emphasis. This was done by kruzn4evr, thanks again:

#2 - Here is my folding rig, with only an i7 920 cooled for now (has a Xchanger 360 rad with 6 Gelid fans all to itself :haha:):

No lights or anything crazy (or cool like the copper pipe...awesome JM).

I posted these on the Corsair 800D case post after upgrading from my last install with a Coolermaster stacker. Since it is watercooled dual loop, I will share here as well.

Retired my Swiftech res. for the EK drive bay spinner res. and install some lights
