Hardline Tubing w/ No Bends

I am looking to put a custom water loop on my pc. I have never done a custom loop before. I have read many forums saying it is difficult especially when it is your first time. However, would this be case I weren't bending any tubes?

Not really, but it would be expensive as hell. I prefer the look in most cases, but the price makes it not feasible for most people.

I would say it depends where you get the parts. You can get enough tuning and connectors for 3 builds from someone like McMaster Carr for less then $100 but if you go and buy specialty waterxooling stuff from pc suppliers. And paying the gamer tax.

Bite bullet, bend the tubes, get good. Honestly i would allocate the budget that you would have allocated on fittings to more tubes to allow for errors.

Do you have the time and experience and money to do it?

It's not really easier than bending, it's just replacing the bends with fittings so you need to still measure everything perfectly and spend more money on fittings.

if your worried about bending tubes, you can just go soft tube. (if you convert you will have spare fittings)  but as long as you don't get cheap tube you get the same results,

 

if you are hard set on hardline then get a cheap angle guide kit,  they are very handy, and if you dont get expensive metal ones then they are quite affordable.

 

and ForScience! makes a great point, that you should buy extra any ways,  for error and or later changes down the line.
