    Ok so im moving to a smaller TJ08-EW build and purchased a Apogee Drive2 from this forum that came with some 3/8" tube and compression fittings

    If i mount the apogee like this the bend would be too tight for tube
    excuse the paintshop cut n paste

    I was thinking a BITSPOWER Carbon Black Triple Rotary Snake-Style Dual IG1/4" Extender with some extensions would look nice but i think its bend will be too tight to reach the other side of the gpu unfortunately
    I have never used anything other than barbs and hose before so some help with working out what i need to reach around the gpu would be nice thanks

    The block is a EK-VGA Supreme HF its ~37-41mm from the barb to the edge of the card and the underside of the barb sits ~17-20mm above the pcb
    Oh and just to be difficult i like curves so i would rather avoid any tight 90 bends

    yeah or maybe four 45 degree bends
    wonder how far around that would come or would i need a spacer in the middle of that as well

    the cheapest option would be to change the pump around but then the tube gets a fair bit longer as the inlet\outlet are no longer on the side i want'

    i have been having a good look at the tj08 in that thread the last few days... dam there is a lot of nice builds

    edit
    two of these may get me around but the picture\description are not good enough so i have no idea what other fittings i need to get the correct distance

    If you use extenders to get past the edge of the block, something from here to whatever length you need, and then 2 standard rotary 90 degree fittings and your barbs, away you go.

    This means that you can angle one towards the res, and one off to who knows where.

    res will be gone other than a T-line behind the mb tray
    loop order will probably look a bit more like this
    http://www.overclock.net/t/1068487/lightbox/post/22279558/id/2018840
    but the return hose will come in behind the mb tray directly to the front 200mm rad

    ok seems there is a sr5 rotary snake that may be big enough if im reading this right unlike the sr3 i first looked at
    http://www.thekoolroom.com/uploaded/public/50093b489694a9.80455379.jpg
    going by that it looks like the inside gap is 33.8mm yes?

    ok from what i can gather this should get me around the card
    Enzotech Male to Female G 1/4 Threaded Adapter Black $7.50
    Enzotech Male to Male G 1/4 Threaded Coupler Black $4.50
    BITSPOWER Silver Shining Five Rotary Snake-Style Dual IG1/4" Extender $24

    http://www.thekoolroom.com/product/enzotech-male-to-female-g-1-4-threaded-adapter-black/
    37mm -5.5mm thread =31.5mm

    http://www.thekoolroom.com/product/enzotech-male-to-male-g-1-4-threaded-coupler-black/
    from what i can tell the middle looks slightly larger than the 5.2mm thread on the male to male fitting

    then the snake should give me at least another 5mm which gets me just over 40mm i hope

    well the bits arrived and it might be touch and go weather or not the side panel fits on with it totaling 78mm

    the snake has ~12-16mm of inner room and the enzotech m to m fitting is also ~12mm giving me 56-60mm of room to get around the card which is way more than i needed

    wish they provided better measurements for these parts
    may need to order a shorter extender now guess ill see if i can get the side panel on when i have finished modding the case http://forums.atomicmpc.com.au/index.php?showtopic=55992

    just going by the measuring tape the psu will probably squeeze in :) thanks

    i have yet to take this build apart and start moving it into the new case but if those fittings fit then it should be up and running by monday if not then it will probably be the end of the week before a new extension arrives
