    My 900D "Bucket List" Build - Rigid Tube Adventure!!

    Hello!

    I was inspired by all the new cool 900d builds out there, so two months ago I decided to create a new gaming machine, but my challenge was to do all the bends in acrylic tube...no rotary or angle fittings!! I ended up only using 2 rotary fittings...I was close : It was an amazing learning experience!

    The build is almost finished so I wanted to share a few pics!

    At the heart of the build is a Maximus VI Extreme!!

    At the moment I am 16th in the world in 3DMark Firestrike!! for 3X GPU and 43rd in the world overall! And these benchmarks were run on air before I actually built the machine...I believe I have significant headroom still left!. The really cool part is that I have the only Haswell Z87 build in the entire top 50!

    My build log is HERE.

    Awesome build. How was it working with that pipe? Difficult to bend?

    Learning curve is not steep..After the first couple I got a pretty good handle on it. The key is to measure, measure again, then again, and then another time !!

    Thanks!
