Make Hardline Wire Tubing Raises Bar For PC Cable Management

We predicted at some point somebody would attempt to hardline their PC power cables.

The first recorded accomplishment was made by 1pq_Lamz who shared his amazing work on the pcmods sub forum reddit on 7/22/19. When asked "How did you bend them?" He responded with "By hand, used some scrap tube as reference so each bent has the same diameter." The look reminds me a lot of brake lines on high performance race cars or hydraulic fluid lines on professional or industrial equipment.

Judging by photos, it looks like he used either 1/8" or 3/16" OD Stainless Steel Tubing.

We've used this same type of stainless tubing, but larger size for our PC Water Cooling Hardline Guide

Stainless Steel Hardline tubing created for 8 pin GPU Power cables.

Do you see yourself attempting to Do-It-Yourself with Hardline tubing for your PC cables and wires?

Notice he used clear acrylic cable combs to straighten the stainless steel cable hardlines.
