quick question: Does the ends of hardline tube have to be perfectly straight?

Not perfectly, just about all hardline fittings seal on the sides of the tube not the end face so it isn't critical. A little angle will be fine, particularly with the primochill compression fittings, they are really big and simple compared with others.

well it's been sometime since i had an update and i really don't have much to post, because nothing has turned up or back in stock yet...

but i have been playing around with the loop order and have come to realise that i don't have the space and skill needed to get the bends to where i'm happy with it and so i'm going to have to use angled fitting here and there to get everything the way i want it so.

also going to see if i can put in a PSU shroud made up.






also i've been testing the cables out to see how much room i have...

Coming along very nice now fella, your bending skills are impressive. How are you going to tame the cables? Combs, Lacing, Training?

Death threats?

Shame you keep changing the loop and have to redo tubing again but your building up lots of experience. I preferred the very first layout as it didn't need that insanely tight and awkward run from the GPU to the CPU.

i'm going to be honest here, the bending is sh*t imo and i need to redo all of it asap but with PETG and angled fittings.

I'm not happy with using angled fittings but i can't keep wasting money on tube so close to xmas or everyone is getting socks and slipper and i'll be the most hated uncle in the world lol

as for cable i'm not sure yet and this just happened
