Holy cow!  I hope that's temporary.  It doesn't look like the video cards have anywhere to go .  Is this going in that big ass custom case you're building or are you saving that for the SR-X?

yah, its temporary, I have qd's on all 10 blocks so that I can quickly check differances in running any config of parallel/seriel put rads or pumps anywhere in the loop. I have found it doesnt seem to matter much where the rads are. this is also that way so I can rip it all apart in less than 5 min for measuring and whatnot when I change my mind on how my manifolds will be placed in the custom case. I will have the manifolds designed so that only the bottom plates of the manifolds will have to be changed when I get the sr-x.
 
and this is big ass tubing I got for 40' for 20 dollars at home depot, lol but it is decieving in the pic, my other sli config which isnt in the loop atm has the quad ek parallel bridge on it and it fits fine if i dont use qd's on the chipset.

Cool .  I'm new to watercooling so I'll ask the noobish question... what is "hardline"?

my definition of hard line is meaning no tubing at all, only fittings, hard copper pipe and manifolds.

What do you all think about these pieces to complete the loop with nateman's CPU blocks and chipset block.
 
The issue with the Danger Den CPU blocks is that the threads are super close together so compression fittings don't fit side-by-side so for the CPU blocks I have to order something angled like the 45 degree compression fittings.

the way that I designed the new tops for the dd bases allows any fitting to be used. I spead them apart when I designed it.

I think if i remember corectly i have almost an inch and a quarter center to center on them.
 
your list looks good though.

I wish lol. It's 10 feet for 22 bucks :( I actually have the wrong one listed. It's supposed to be 1/2" ID 3/4" OD.

if your asking me? yah it is not really for watercooling a pc thats why it was cheep. but its only there until I finish my manifolds.  I mean it works and all but it is really stiff and has no anti-bio properties. just go to home depot plumbing dept and get the 1/2" x 3/4" stuff they have on the bottom shelf. sorta hard to rub the super sticky tape glue off, lol.
 
but its throw away, why spend more.

wait a sec, so you think that nateman's blocks will work without the 45 degree elbows?  If so, that's awesome news.

Well considering Nate has already been promised to have a free SrX motherboard sent to him just so he can make them. Also with all the blocks that went out for just the sr2 it can be basically assured that Nate will make at least 3 of them which are already promised to be bought then watch for orders beyond. :)

More testing.  The top is what is posted above, 1/16th ball type end mill.

The bottom is a 1/16 flat bottom end mill.  I am torn as to which one I like better, as far as Aluminum goes, so the only way to get a better idea is to do it on some scrap copper.

Nice designs.  I think the bottom one looks better IMHO, but you're right you have to try it on copper to see.
