Initially attempted to hard tube with stainless 3/8" Link: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=140548. Although the tube bending was actually working out as planned, the rigidity of the tube placed to much pressure on the rads and water blocks, hence why the attempt was abandoned. Flexible tubing in the end proved a better choice.

I know this is old but I like the simplicity and minimal look. You've done some very clean modding here. I am planning on doing full water in my 800D this summer. I just haven't had the time yet. 2 weeks vacation + 800D and a bunch of money = fun project.

10/10 - this is my favorite style of build!
