The tubing was a box of old stock I had kicking around,,,,simply wanted tio use it up....very stiff..n hard....my tip when you have tubing like this is to soak the end in a small bowl of hot water...this will soften it up enough so it can be easily slipped onto the barb ends of your compression fittings.

Thanks.....I've been running my rigs on custom loops since 2013.....after so many tear downs,,,re-builds....etc, you learn by your mistakes and every re-build actually gets a little easier.....installing your fittings and some tubing (leaving extra length to cut) on to your rads and prior to installing rads is another good tip for those hard to reach spots.
 
btw I know the Corsair 1600w is crazy for this build, but I came off of a SLi (and even played with Tri SLi), hence that PSU....although it is dead quiet ;)

Got very lucky n scored an 3080Ti FTW3 Ultra, so will be draining and swapping out the 3080 FTW3 Ultra....!!!
I never could crack that Port Royal 13K score w the 3080..so damn close...the 3080Ti should be sniffing for 15k if it overclocks as well as the 3080 does ;)

I'll always prefer brown PCB and noctua fans over RGB. Needs a bit more brown

^^^ This build is on the performance / cooling efficiency side vs bling ;) These Low RPM High Static pressure Noctuas teamed up with some Low FPI Radiators provide solid results...couple of hours of CB77 and my 3080 is at 42c ;)
