    Really tidy build. Looks great and awesome to see rigid tubing being used properly.

    Well done. :thumbup:

    I really should go finish mine and put the orange pastel in..... so lazy.

    Great job on the tubing - looks absolutely awesome! :thumbup:

    However it would be a LOT more interesting if you didn't show us like 20 photos of exactly the same thing - you realise that we can rotate our heads or monitors if we want to see the same shot at 6 different angles. :lol:

    How about giving us images of some of the other aspects of the build? For example, how did you get those tubes so accurately bent?

    Very nice build for a compact machine, What sort of temps are you getting?

    From what I can see both the front rad & upper rad fans are mounted in the push configuration (both exhausting/pushing air out of the case) which would = a lot of negative case pressure, Not a huge problem but the fans & the huge gaps around them would be more of a problem as in a loss of efficiency, In both push or pull configuration having the fans sealed off to the radiator helps drastically

    in the push configuration like yours the pressurised air from the fan would be hitting the radiator core & escaping out through the gaps around the fans rather than forcing ALL of the air through the radiator core

    Works the same the other way too, Fans trying to pull air through a radiator core will suck air around the side of the fan rather than through the core if there is gaps

    As mentioned its not a huge problem but maybe if you changed fans or sealed them off you could get better temps at the same fan speed or same temps with less fan speed & less noise too

    I will be running the same radiators on my new project, Checkout the fan shrouds I made>

    +1, Some pics of the other side of the case would be great

    thanks for you reply, i know this problem. and the temp i got is ok,
    and also i only use 1 x 780 ti so the temp must be ok, the air flow from the back, i need design some cover for the back, only one problem is the noise . now i let the fans running under 1000, and the temp of cpu is around 35, gpu is around 42, use the furmark let the gpu overload, the temp will go up to 60, so i have to change the fans speed to 1500, so will be loudly , cause of i think put the fans like mine looks better.
    do you have any idea for me?thank you

    It would be possible to have some shrouds custom made to seal the Coolermaster fans but that looks like a lot of trouble due to the shape / design of the fans, It might be better to fit some different fans that are easier to seal off using simple flat shrouds
    You have a Corsair case so why not go with some Corsair SP120 fans?
    The template to make some shrouds can be found here>

    15mm fan spacing>

    Using the Corsair fans would also allow you to add a bit more colour & I think it would give it that finishing touch without overdoing it>

    A little over-kill on the cooling but nice job, well done.

    Is there any chance of some shots of the pump power supply side?
