The HardTube project has become a reality. Alphacool is breaking new ground and setting a new standard!
Up till now, the most commonly used method for connecting water cooling systems was normal PVC tubing - but now, Alphacool is offering another way to set up your system. HardTubes provide more organisation for a system, giving it a distinctly more structured appearance.
Available now are the brand-new brass tubes, in black chrome and chrome. With the corresponding connectors and their easy functionality, these tubes can be linked or sealed together for an absolutely leak-proof fit. The plexiglass tubes can be fitted into a system easily with the right bending tools, without requiring extra angled pieces. The tubes must be cut to the right length in order to fit into the system.
The following options are available:
HardTube 13/10mm Clear Plexi 20cm, 40cm, 60cm and 80cm
HardTube 13/10mm brass chrome 20cm and 40cm
HardTube 13/10mm brass black chrome 20cm and 40cm
HardTube 16/12mm Clear Plexi 20cm, 40cm, 60cm and 80cm
HardTube 13/10mm 90° Plexi 10/30cm, 20/40
HardTube 16/13mm 90° Plexi 10/30cm, 20/40
Note: Due to the made-to-fit pipes, some effort is required to plug the connections in straight.
Scope of delivery:
1x Alphacool HardTube 16/13mm 90° Plexi (PMMA) 20/40cm
Note: not compatible with Monsoon fittings

It was such a pleasure working with this product. The build I used this in was such a breeze to put together (no hours standing over a heat gun). Highly recommended for people who are put off by bending tubes, particularly if you want to use acrylic (which looks amazing btw).
For everyone who has not the Eiskoffer bending kit, this is the first choice!
