So I'm thinking it may be time to make my machine a little more professional,

just wondering, would you run the water cooling pipes through them?

would you run the water cooling pipes through them?

Have you thought of a reason not to? It surely defeats the object of having the chains if not every 'cable' is within them.

Yes I do exactly that. They are great for keeping seperation from signal cables from power cables as well.

Also running the water coolant pipes through the drag chains would stop them from getting kinked or bent and reducing the coolant flow.
