Building the Mnpctech Corsair iCue 5000T Gaming PC, "Retro Futurism" Case Mod"

My Corsair icue 5000T build will stand out further from the crowd by utilizing stainless steel hard line tubing for water cooling the Intel - Core i9-12900K Desktop Processor. I chose this type of tubing because it's bright metallic finish is aesthetically pleasing. It doesn't absorb dirt, smudges, fingerprints or scuffs, making maintenance very easy. The biggest advantage to using stainless for PC water cooling is it's corrosion resistant properties, so you can use distilled water in your water cooling loop. It also resists bacteria and germs making it ideal choice for hygiene-conscious environments, hospitals and medical care centers.

 I recommend the 600 series bender by Rigid Tool, or Imperial brand tube benders, these are the lowest cost.

Type of stainless tubing I'm using for PC water cooling is T-304/304L, Seamless Tube in 0.5" x 0.035" x 0.43"

Tools & Supplies Used in this Guide:

*RIGID 600 Series Tubing Bender

*Table Vise with Terry Cloth towel, to avoid scratching tubing.

*Micro Hand File

*Hacksaw with Bi-Metal Cutting Blade

*Table top grinder

*50 grit sand paper
