Thanks for the warm welcome. That AX1200i is no joke. I am using an acrylic case so between that and the triple slot cards the back panel flexes all to hell. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to cool two GTX680 DCU2 TOP cards with such little spacing. Not an easy task. The one nice part that I did not plan is the black and red color coordination between all the components.

the fusion pipes have 10mm OD on them, and arent treaded.
so only way would be a tube ( 10mm ID and 13mm OD tube ) inside the ( 19/13mm ) tube and use a clamp, but thats up to you again if you will take the risk of it.
there is a risk that it will leak but there is no guarantee.


Thanks for the reply - I feared that this may be the only way - may give it a try.

I have my fusion connected to my loop, had to use clamps, no issues whatsoever and it was as restrictive as I expected. Temps are good too.

How is Norway in September bro? In the US we think you dudes just have heavenly blondes running around all over the place, hahaha.

Sounds about right 😛

It's getting a bit nippy outside here, and I do have a few ideas about putting that cold outside air to good use for cooling my PC in some way. Putting my case outside and just run a few cables in through the window might be a bit drastic though.

you can run some tubings under the grass so when the cold gets here it cools down the coolant runing around in it 😛 ( sløyfe )

well this morning when i left for work, it was 5+C ( at 7am ) aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand i can count on one hand about how menny days we have had temps over 20+C so far this year.
other then that its been rain, bit more rain, some more rain and rain and cold.
well my setup just tilted over 1k usd so :s
as of now mine is a overkill and aiming for the future if expanding so ( just the water and the parts needed for it )
aaaand i cant say its the cheepest parts i got either so 😛 ( im a sucker that way......... )
sit down and go over and see what parts you would gett, set up a "wishlist" and see how expensive it gets compared to that raystorm you linked and parts yo need extra for that, tubings 10/13mm ( ID/OD ) thats the one you need, for the fusion nipples are 10mm OD.
as of now i have 1 360 and 1 240 rad, 260mm res whit catode, pump, few ligts, a good deal of fittings ( had to order a few more yesturday heh, it adds on and on ).
have to see if i can make a bracket for the pump and so on, need to twist my head some. dismounted a good deal of parts from the case so its all wobbly 😛
