Update: Completed Pics
I would like to share my 2014 build log and hopefully get some feedback to improve my build. I'm a newbie builder. Since the hardtube became popular, I wanted to build one. I learned by watching RomeoKilo, Singularity Computers, and other builders out there in YouTube. I thought it is easy, and I was wrong... hehe I tried...

First set of items (I also order EVGA 750W PSU as I don't want to kill my current rig while i'm building):
As I'm waiting for my other stuffs to arrive (waiting for stock), I started working on the mid-plate with 3mm acrylic...
Stuffs starting to arrive...
Working with GPU waterblock...
Planning the loop...
Oh wait... am I using EK 16mm OD tube fitting? Since I'm very unsuccessful with bending tubes
(at least I can't get the right measurement and angle given all the tools I have except for the Monsoon Measuring Kit which is unfortunately been out-of-stock for the last 3 months).
So I decided to scrap the plan and and proceed to "Plan B", BitsPower fittings...
Bit short on Bitspower Enhanced Dual 90-Degree Multi-Link Adapter and I don't want to buy a piece and wait another week again, this project has been sitting here for too long now... I will do leak testing this weekend and hopefully finish the build. Unless you guys notice where the shortage that I'm talking about and suggested that I should follow the scheme of the build...
