    Pic came out a little fuzzy, but you get the idea.

    420 P/P in the top, 240 P/P in the front, 480 Push in the bottom, and a 240 2 Push / 1 Pull in the bottom. Made all the bends (Primochill PETG) around a 1 1/4" hole saw as my bending jig except the one 180 from the pump through the midplate, that was a 1 3/4" I think. All HWLabs Black Ice Nemesis GTX rads, Revolver fittings, EK blocks, PPC pumps (the pumps are fine, the pump blocks have the holes too close together). No leaks, I've never had a Revolver leak, 3rd loop with them.

    Anyway, there was somebody asking about bending tubes and I told my method.

    Looks pretty neat.
    Did you heat the pipes for bending them easier?

    Yeah, there's a silicone insert you put inside the tube then heat the tube with a heat gun to bend it. PETG is very forgiving, you just have to get it evenly heated to avoid kinking or thinning out. I only had one re-do in this loop, the long tube along the top to the OUT of the CPU block.

    Hard tubes reminds me of Pipe Dream on the NES

    Especially mine. I can make functional - tidy and aesthetically pleasing are beyond my grasp. It was my first loop with a midplate and dual pumps, so I just went with it.
