    I'm just not very keen on having to drain a loop every time I change something, and we all change things a lot around here. I would prefer a cooler with QDCs so you can swap out parts without having to drain anything. This is really the only reservation I have ever had with regard to a custom loop.

    I like the builds to look nice. Part of that is picking different coolant colors to compliment the build, and I don't mind spending a weekend putting together a hardline system, or occasional maintenance/swap outs. Not everyone is of similar mind, obviously.

    I may just purchase a starter kit and fiddle with it for a while to get comfortable with it and then proceed from there. Probably use my test bench for this.

    With EKWB custom loop is very simple...

    Total around 370 without GPU Block but that's better than any kit available because you choose parts and size/color of tubes/fittings and model/size of radiator and CPU block you want..

    I don't know why I didn't excited for acrylic tubes from beginning. I love glass reservoirs.
    I don't know why they are end of life on EKWB site.

    That's really awesome Raja. Wish I could do that kind of build. Very clean.

    Normal tubes could look excellent as well if someone build nice.
    It's important to change tube colors and shape of loop every few months.

    What is safer? What experts think, acrylic or normal soft tubes?
    I mean where is less chance to leak.
