For years now I've been wanting to delve into watercooling, but I've wanted to hardline everything instead of using tubing.

 

This rig I came across is not exactly like I had in mind, but it is a great execution.

 

 

It is gorgeous isn't it?

I duno .. 17 fans and 2 480 rads is super overkill . I much rather have 4 fans and 1 for 99% the same temps

Very nice. I have wanted to hardline a system but lack the time to make it happen!

Agreed, but its just the execution and cleanliness that I like, not the entire build.

I don't think a single rad would keep all that cool...

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

It's amazing, but I like to be able to change out any and every part at anytime. So WCing has always seemed like to much work.

My dream WC setup would be a giant water tank (made of copper or maybe aluminum) and have an internal pump that'll cycled the water from the block on the CPU/GPU and not need any fans and the pump would be silent or near silent inside the large resevoir tank and there'd be enough surface area to cool the water to ambient or near ambient.

Another wild idea (if stupidly wealthy) woild be to replace my box spring with an identically sized copper slate that the water would pass through and give off its heat to...while it automatically heated my bed lol.

It'd be awesome to do a hard line system -- but I'm not so sure I could make one very pretty. lol

hard lined loop looks awesome and much sophisticated and tidier imo.

such a challenging work to do. need precise measurements/bends with the pipes. 

i wonder how much pipes/fittings would be wasted if i make the attempt...or everything ends up at trash :lol:
