With the case assembled and hardware installed for custom gaming PC Project p5yche, it’s time to construct the watercooling loop.
Here is all the hardware installed:
I’m using the cutting tool provided in the kit from Thermaltake. This works really well with the PETG 16 mm tubing, very quick and only gives a slight burr on the inner edge of the tube, that is easy to remove.
Started off cutting the straight runs to connect the radiators to each other.
First bend in place – connecting the left radiator to the reservoir. The bending insert and mandrel from Thermaltake made this a breeze.
All the tubing in place, apart from the top run from the motherboard block to the radiator. This run is actually longer than 1m (the length of the tubing pieces), so I will be using the flow indicators from Thermaltake to break up the length.
Here are the 24 Thermaltake Riing 12 120 mm RGB fans fitted in push/pull configuration!
Also got the top tubing runs sorted now I have the two Thermaltake flow indicators.
Looking good in green… can’t wait to fill this up with the green coolant!
