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.

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! :)

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.
I will be very happy to help you ! :)

Is it fanless?
No it's not fanless, there is two 120 MM on the front, one 200MM on the side panel and one 200MM on the top ! ;)

this is one of the rare times when I hand out a 10/10.

What are you using to connect the tubing with the blocks?

I dig the artistic shots but could you take a couple of plain straight wide shots so I get a better mental picture of it?

great build, looks awesome with the copper tubes :)

Edit: I see you have 2133Mhz Dominator, could you maybe share which bios you are using on the Sabertooth, and what timings do you use for the memory? I've think I have the same memory but I can't get it to run @ 2133Mhz, it won't boot and reverts back to 1866Mhz. Thanks :)

Nice work on this build,, It shows time and thought was put into it,, When I'm not able to build right now, it's good to see this type of work in the gallery. Hope to see more

Great pipework.I love your design. What kind of pipe bender did you use? What is the radius of your bend, it looks pretty tight?

The smallest hand tool to bend 12mm tubing that i could find has a 36mm radius. Anything smaller than that and you need a big and complicated CNC bender.

You pushed this thing to near perfection and deserve the highest grade I ever gave and that's 9/10.

EDIT after seeing the whole mod section I decided to change my vote from 9 to 10/10. You are one of the nine guys I gave a perfect score of 10/10 after viewing all mods from page 1 to page 30. This case mod is something you can truly be proud of.
