Can't wait to see more but so far what I see I like, a lot, already marked my calendar for release date. I thought I'd be wanting the Phanteks Project 916/Primo Pro for my next case until I saw this. There is so many things to like about the Dark Base 900 Pro version I'm falling in love. I'm hoping it's all it appears to be when the reviewers get their hands on it.   Here's another preview...
I think others have answered your question quit well already but I will elaborate on my build. I use a 420 up top Alphacool with 7 ports I use the two ports facing up to fill loop from the top of the case. I did not like the tight fit of the 480 and the 420 allows for movement front to back to accommodate other aspects of the build and if you do the math the 420 has more sq mm of surface are for cooling than a 480. A no brainier if you ask me. Mine is a 60mm thick rad...
  The monsta has a bleed port on the end to the front of the case put your drain there like below. I have a very similar setup with res in the back and have already bought a bitspower dual d5 top and d5 to add to the system only difference is I use a monsta 360 on the bottom and have room in the back for both pumps. I, like you, prefer minimal tubing and that setup works well for that. One more recommendation get an Alphacool rad for the top with there 7 ports it make it...

Excellent quality buildI agree with the pro quality commentPepto LOL the comments around here are hilariousI like the pink so much so I could see a couple accent strip right & left perimeter of the SLI bridge to equal out the distribution of color not sure what color that is there now, copper? but matching would be nice.
The Phanteks PWM controlled fan hub takes the PWM signal from the host motherboard via a connection to it and coverts that to a variable voltage which controls the speed of voltage controlled 3 pin fans connected to the hub. The conversion is similar to what you would get from a pwm fan connected to a motherboard true pwm header or true pwm splitter and is controllable through bios the same way where curves can address any inequities between true pwn and voltage...
Just a heads up if anyone is interested White Enthoo Luxe $119 after $20 MIR at the EGG LINK
I assume you mean electronic game and tiddly winks & marbles don't count. The year was 1979 under the Christmas tree was Atari 2600 which came with combat. My wife at the time also bought Video Olympics to go with it because pong was one of the included games on the cartridge. We had both played it (pong) and enjoyed it at a friends house on an Atari Pong system. Interesting fact; adjusted for inflation it was a 700 investment in today's dollars but only 180 bucks back...
The joy of water cooling is the end result getting there is a never ending process of swapping in upgrades, tweaking, tuning and maintenance. The best plans are those that make all of that simple as can be. What drives folks back to air is a frustrating complicated hard to manage build. What some fail to realize is a loop can last for many a build while remaining static in a case. Taking into consideration what is static and what is likely to change is thought well...
