That looks really nice, elbows may hurt flow a little but you are getting great temps on your processor. What kind of ambient temperature do you have? How much has your overclocks increased (i.e. memory, gpu, cpu), over your previous overclocks?

wow, the difference is so dramatic. the before pic looks like... computer intestines all over the bottom of the case. looking very clean now, and the temps look awesome too. good job.

I know the elbows are hurting it but the case is to small to just bend the tubing, no matter what i tried i was getting kinks. I wanted to find some molded hard clear line but couldnt find any. The old hydrocool system wouldnt run stable at 250 fsb 1:1 and the temps were up around 50C. switched boards too from a vmodded IS7 to a stock P4C800-E. Havent had any time too do more OCing but that will be next weekend. My ambient is 72F(23C?). Cant wait to see what my 9800 pro will do with the better cooling.

Elbows hurt but kinks are definitely worse. Looks nice. I suggest posting the pictures in this thread then linking "My New Mess" to this thread so you don't break any rules.

Is there any real data on the impact of 90 degree elbows? Intuitively I can see how they would impact the flow, but how much?

I've read 1 elbow = 15 inches of tubing worth of flow resistance. Is that for 3/8" tubing? Will a rule of thumb really work? It can't be the same for 1/2", as this would assume that the restriction/ID caused be a 90 degree fitting is a linear relationship.

I'm an EE. Fluid mechanis is a mystery to me. Advice please.
