Thanks Tim. With options limited to 10mm and 6mm it looks like bambihunter's suggestion is the way to go. It has interesting implications for users with 13mm diameter tubing though. Splitting 13mm into 2x 10mm won't cause loss of pressure or flow so those users with a 13mm line to the CPU and SLI should maybe look into using double CNT VID connectors with concomitant benefits in terms of constant resistance and parallel supply to the GPUs for more even cooling.

Tim, can you elaborate on how the water flows through the VID-428's? I always assumed if you put two outlets inline it would theoretically allow water to flow past the card without going through it.

If there is one inlet and outlet into the full video block assembly, water can be pushed through blocks in parallel. See our new VID connector page for details.

That clarifies things a little more. Thanks.

I would like to see a new integrated cooling system. I feel its a shame you discontinued your PCx line of products. Precisely I would like to see a new custom case based on the ERM-2K3U. Just imagine the ERM-2K3U in vertical operation but with extra space on its left for the electronic components. Instead of being 45cm x 10.7cm x 52.1cm in size it could be 45cm x 40cm x 52.1cm. That extra 30 cm would be the compartment to place motherboard, gpu, HD, ect.

Might be interesting to see Koolance tool some of their own cases. Probably out of the scope of what they would be interested in, but it could prove profitable if they designed like 4 or 5 different cases. They could work great for air cooling and functionality, but also be set up well for when a customer wants to make that step into water cooling. Not really very many cases out there designed to facilitate water cooling without some type of moding. I know thermaltake makes cases for their water cooling kits, and there are a few others that work well but almost all need some type of moding especially if your going to run 2 loops. Would be nice to have a case thats ready to go with bolt on water parts for at least 1 3x120 and 1 2x120 heat exchangers. Could make different levels of them so you have the crazy all out ultra water cooling case to a beginner case. Might make it easier to go back with intagrated cases again as well, since you could use your own designs made to work best with your parts.

Just thought of another website one:

Please include pictures of your product installed on the items. i.e. if your selling a block for a GTX295 video card, include a picture or two of your product ON the video card (like it is on the newer GTX block)

Another web feature that would be nice is a direct link to a specific post in a thread. Or at the very least, to put the post number on each post. In other words, I am aware that you can count the posts and edit the address when posting a link to another post. A lot of other sites just have the post number so you don't have to count them. Does that make sense?
For instance, if I wanted to link to my post. I would have to select the 4th page of the "Case Gallery" posts I would go to that page. Since I don't know the direct link to my post, I would have to use this url: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=49&start=30 (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=49&start=30) then count down to my post which is the 9th one which would make the post 39. So, I would edit the url to now be viewtopic.php?f=10&t=49&start=39.
http://forums.koolance.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=49&start=39

That works, but is there an easier way?

You can directly link to a post by copying the subject link for that specific post. For example, your last one is "http://forums.koolance.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=813&p=4366#p4359" (html bookmark = #p4359)

I've been copying the address for the topic, then adding up the post count to my topic. Where do you get the number you are refering to Tim?
