    New to the forum, so I figured I'd post my current rig.
    On my third iteration with this setup as I swap around blocks, radiators, and coolant.
    I think I finally have it about 90% where I want it.
    *Also, the uv leds played havoc on my phones camera so pics aren't that great.

    Looks great! Is the UV reaction really that intense?

    The tubing is Primochill UV atomic green, it really pops with good uv lighting. The coolant took a bit of trial to get it just where I wanted it as it's something I mixed. I started with Mayhems UV white coolant and mixed UV Green die and UV clear die in until it got there.
    What made the whole thing was good uv lighting. Cheap uv LED's didn't do much, had to spend a bit more to get quality ones. Downside is they hurt to look at for more than a couple seconds so you really gotta tuck them up so they aren't shining in you eyes when you use the PC.

    Alright, I'll bite. What exactly do you use that for? Eth mining?

    I have the same case, but for me it's purely decorative.

    Finally completed the build. Cabling could still use some attention/sleeving but using 3d printed cable combs did help.

    I should receive a Watercool HTSF2 3x120 LTX radiator to replace the paint flaking EK-CoolStream XE 360 (Triple) XE currently installed.

    My Powder Red and Power Blue UV (for a buddy) Primochill Vue is being shipped on Monday so I should be able to get mine in the system by the end of the week. I thought about going with Crimson Red, but reading that the reds go darker after time I wanted to get the lightest colour to start with. I even purchased some Sys Reboot to drop in my loop for a day or two to clean it out before installing Vue to try and extend it's life as long as possible.

    Since doing soft tube for 10 years, I thought Hard Tube would be the way to go to show off VUE. I even made a time lapse build of my very first attempt at hard tube in celebration of Vue. I'll make a part 2 once my loop has Vue in it.

    Super short video I took while I was filling and bleeding my loop after swapping to clear tubing and the new UV Violet Vue coolant. This stuff looks amazing and I think I'm going to be ordering the gray coolant to replace this when I go rigid tubing later on. I had my pump running too fast to see it well in the tubing AND my phone doesn't pick it up well but it looks amazing with the D5 running more slowly.

    After waiting impatiently, it's time to drain the system and install Vue. A few hiccups due to my part of being finicky but it's done for now.

    Looks good! Should have used "Raining Blood" instead of that weird loop music lol

    LOL only if I liked Slayer and not get a copyright strike on my video :)

    Sorry, had to make a revision to the video and setup. I didn't like some of the LED setup in my case. Either it was too dark or just placed wrong. And yes it still has weird loop music lol :p

    That's a lot of rad- are they all push/intake?

    The 140mm is a pull/exhaust but the two 360mm rads are intake. You want positive pressure to reduce the rate of dust build up on the inside of the case

    I understand, was just curious where the flow was going. Nice setup!

    Nope, it's not kinked or crushed at all, it's a clean bend. The angle just sucks and makes it look bad with the way the light plays on it. That tubing is 5/8 OD 3/8 ID and thick as hell to boot.

    Recently swapped to those hoses as well after a rebuild when my Swiftech rad started to leak, they're great to work with.
