    Beautiful, the copper, and the colour scheme gives it a real steampunk look, yet it is clean and modern. Is that Real copper pipe?, if so, how did you get the bends right? As just a millimetre off can cause things not fit. As always, the thermal armour mobo cover looks good, :).

    Gawsh, that must have taken ages! But it makes it look reallll nice. Much better then twisted up pipes :) Props to you for the cable management too.
    ps. good job on the photography, what camera do you use?

    I love it when people use copper for liquid cooling. Looks great and clean. Everything I would expect from a copper build.

    Pictures store that meta-data. It says a Sony DSC-HX100V.

    This is just terrific! I must say I'm a bit jealous - I wish I was able to do that myself!

    10/10!

    Awesome build! gave ya a 10/10 something i have always wondered when i seen one other build use Copper pipes. I wonder if it helps cooling at all as some heat can dissapate through the pipe's before even hitting the rad?

    Thank you all for your comments! I also hope that copper participates in the dissipation, but I have not tested with standard pipe to verify precisely if there is a gain in heat dissipation.
    But in my opinion it can not hurt! :)

    tres bonne, messieur seinron!.. c'est une magnifique idee & elegant.. j' apprecie votre efforte avec les pipes.. mon premier choix n'est pas les Thermaltake cases, mais votre mod a transformer ce case.. felicitations!

    pardon me if my french is bad, it has been a while since i last wrote french (back in school).. really wanted to appreciate your effort and thought that typing in french would emphasize it..

    One thing that kinda bothers me is how the Copper will look in about 5-6 months from now...
    All the copper heatsinks i have in my GPUs look green-ish and aged by now (like HD4870)

    I use "Belgom Chrome" polisher for the pipe, and this one makes a protective layer on copper which prevents from oxidation. this is a friend who repaired the car that gave me the trick;)

    Wow, your case mods and water cooling is AMAZING. Maybe when I do custom water cooling for my system, I can get you to design the water cooling arrangement.
