Is it okay to reheat a bend to slightly adjust it?

I'm just starting out experimenting doing practice bends and I find myself having to do tiny adjustments to get it perfect for more complicated runs.

Is this okay?

At what point is it not okay?

 

My guess is that it's okay to slightly reheat it while it's still fresh, but you shouldn't let it cool down and then do it again.

What's the right way to go here?

Yeah just try not to let it collapse, so sometimes it's ok to let it cool a bit from what I've seen online, depending on the angle of the bend.

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

Your signature must be really comforting to OP.

Sadly I can never see my own, I should turn that settings on.

It's just a silly signature. I'm not worried ;)

not an issue, esp if you are using a mandrel to help prevent kinks/ collapses

 

i re heated bends and rebent them after chilling them in water to test  placement. 

 

its more of a pain to get it cleanly re-bend, but it is possible.

 

FYI  if you do rebend, accept that it may not look as nice as if you did it right the first time.  also  i suggest angle guides, made my life easy

Yea, I experimented with it on some practice bends after this post. Seems you can reheat and rebend them quite a few times up until a certain point where the tube starts to lose it's shape.

i found that holding the 'open' part of the curve  over the heat gun and rotating till it starts to relax on its own the most effective, although i noticed if i warmed it up too much thats when the ugly bends happened

Hmmm, now that you mentioned it.. that's probably what I did wrong that time.

i could have fit both those rad in my main case, but i would sacrifice the HDD cages bays

Wow, that is some DIY rad placing. Kudos. Just the cable management needs work now.

all those fans were replaced with redux Noctua before i actually booted. and  due to the shear number of hdd's i run (all 8 sata mobo  connectors)  wire management is considered achieved if i can get the rear panel on.

 

those fan wires are neatly attempted  to hide, and the CPU cord for the Vision module is managed to get to its USB plug in, so it can do its OLED stuff.

 

 

its cleanish from the window and not so from the back... sacrifices were made.

Couldn't you just buy a bunch of fan cable extensions to hide them better? That's what I always do. They're a dime a dozen so might as well.

currently that pic was just to get them into the lower case.   they are now mostly hidden and  i have triple splitters/dual extenders, but my case has a PWM x8 hub and  i run a fan controller that i can put about 2 fans per channel on

 

 the only ones really plugged into the mobo are the bottom intake. and the turned around rear exhaust as intake.
