    The only Tube that looks out of place is Res to Pump top, but not that bad, it's hard to tell from pics but have you thought of using

    http://www.thekoolroom.com/product/bitspower-g14-carbon-black-triple-rotary-90-degree-g14-extender/

    Plus

    http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_300_1402&products_id=20340 or longer to connect the two ?


    The other option is turn the pump on it's end and use http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_300_1402&products_id=20339

    to connect the two

    As I said hard to tell from the pics the clearances and how things line up, also with the second option you would need to re-tube the pump outlet or use a 90 which you said you didn't like.

    yeah man.

    Too poor for the next stage, but I've got big plans to downsize to mATX with a nice Max V Gene and some HD7970s :thumbup:
    Going to need external rad though, which could get annoying :Paranoid:

    Better than fucking nvidia.
    WTF dual slot cards. Eww. :sick:

    Edit: Full size mobos are for noobs.

    What would you need to waste all that space on?
    I can fit crossfire GPUs, a soundcard, an overclocked CPU and a bunch of HDDs in a mATX case. Why would I bother with a big, ugly full size thing? :confused:

    Haha my mATX comment was just trolling but I'm serious about AMD cards for dual card Setups. Some of the frame dropping/cheating articles even with 7970s on current drivers are just downright scary.

    I am keen to see what 8000 series brings though

    OK so it's only been three years, but my loop finally gave up, popped a tube, and pissed water all down the inside of my case.
    Through some incredible fluke, nothing expensive got soaked, so I just had to dismantle the loop and retube it, but I also took the liberty of cleaning everything and finding a better way to mount the pump.
    After scrubbing weird white goop from inside all of the waterblocks I think I had a plasticiser problem as well, so all new tubing was required with primochill stuff (that doesn't even come in UV purple :upset: ).

    It turns out 90 degree rotary fittings start to leak after 5ish years, which explains the big loops of tubing in the middle.

    I am a huge fan of the new pump placement in almost all respects, but bleeding an upside down pump is the fucking worst; it took like 3 solid hours of fucking with it until I realised I had to take it out, turn it right way up, bleed the loop, then screw it back in up top. :tired:

    PS black on black is super hard to photograph with a phone camera through a case window, sorry about the image quality.
