The purple build of no particular name.

G'day gents. I've been working on me rig over the holidays (because no kids). It's not anywhere NEAR done yet, but I must say I'm enjoying the color change!

Before:


Dat flow meter (ugh!):



After:






So much more to do, but not a bad start. Purple is the new black.

Bonus pic of a pretty full Case Labs pedestal (12 PWM Gentle Typhoons + a pair of Alphacool 360 Monstas):

I REALLY hate doing hard tube. I have no talent at ALL when it comes to measuring stuff properly, so I restrict myself to 2-dimensional bends. I wasted LOTS of tube trying to do a 3-way bend from the CPU to the top rad, so I gave up and copped out with that weird radioactive L-fitting, since I've had those laying around for YEARS and never used them.

If YOU did hard tube, you'd get the hang of it VERY quickly, since you have tool / measuring skills. Just buy lots of extra. You'd do a great job with hard tube man. For a guy with your skills, it would be CAKE.

I'm not going to go hard (fnarr) dude. I don't really like it. Prefer the organic curves you get with soft tubing. I liked it for a while but yeah, gone off it a bit now. Plus I would need to add all sorts of draining stuff etc where as now I just undo the CPU block and it comes out of the PC. Made it easy switching a CPU out the other day, didn't even need to drain or change any coolant

I'm much too fickle to have hard tubing

Actually the best part of having a pedestal like this IS the drain setup. I literally drained / refilled this thing probably close to 20 times over the holidays, since it started out more pink than purple, and the dude could not abide pink.

This looks ghetto as heck, but works unbelievably well:

Yeah I bet it's heavenly having a pedestal

If I ever do my final build it will have a pedestal
