The build is now complete <3<3

i will upload images very soon of the final build process and images of the Finished BUILD<3<3

if you have any questions about my thought process during the build, please ask away and ill do the best i can to answer

I had 1 leak from reservoir to the pump, tried 3 times to fix it, but ended up using the old res top with single hole, as the buttom instead, wich fixed the leak ..
i made 2 acryllic plates, covered 1 side of it with carbon foil and put one in the buttom of the case, as a mirror wic reflects all the gold <3<3,
and the other plate i put in the back to cover up the SSD's

Looks great,,

Idle temps
CPU 27 Degrees
GPU 25 Degrees

Load temps
CPU 45 Degrees
GPU 40 Degrees
