    So I am looking at the Lian Li PCO11 Dynamic Case with the Corsair 150i Pro CPU Cooler (switching the ML fans for LL). However with this case & using LL fans it seems the only option is for the CPU Radiator to be used as outtake at the side or top. So wondering how the CPU cooling would be if it...

    I know people have done copper pipe tubing and it can be a pain to bend the pipes. I know you can buy softer copper that is more malleable but even then it seems like more trouble then its worth. My question is could you solder on fittings for bends and such, or would the solder used cause...
