This is actually a build-in-progress, so I will be updating this post later with some better pictures, but I figured I was far-enough along to share it online.

Pureille is one of my more "unique" builds (besides the time I attempted to merge a fish tank full of fish into a case design) and uses industrial-grade Sharkbite tubing (designed to carry water at extremely high pressure for a building's plumbing) as it's water-cooling tubing. I was surprised at how well it works and it is a rather inexpensive material to convert into water-cooling piping. Several layers of white glossy spray-paint removed the rather unsightly branding from the pipes as well as removing the ugly grey, metallic color of the fitting clamp rods (which can be found at the end of the tubes. Be warned, though -- if you clamp those evil little things down and make a mistake they're impossible to detach from the pipe -- you have to start over again at square 1! For some odd reason I also decided to wrap the edges of the tubing with over-sticky electrical tape, and ended up liking the result of doing so. Sadly, I was not able to water-cool the GPU as it is an OEM one from MSI (and desperately in need of an upgrade ;P) and has a non-removable cooling plate, so the loop is CPU-only (which doesn't matter much to me since I mainly only use CPU-intensive software like GCC and the LLVM suite for software dev work. Among other little surprises here and there I decided to take the discreet route and put the multicolored LED strip at the back side of the case for once. Although I'm still pulling superglue out of my hair, I'm glad I did, as it allows for a more subtle lighting effect than what I normally get when placing LED strips at the front. I know this isn't very much of a write-up, but I'm sure I'll have more to say when it's finished. Thanks for looking at my build anyways!

That's pretty slick brother! Excellent job on the custom loop! It would be awesome if you could do a derailed write up on the procedures you used to make the loop out of your selected materials.

Nice job!

What plate are you referring to that blocked the GPU waterblock? Is it a non reference PCB?
