Literally drooling over this update, well done man! Pretty much what I had in mind for my loop orientation too! biggrin.gif

And now you've made me start to rethink my recent decision of the hard-tube option mad.gif

Looking great so far. Can't wait to see how it turns out once you cram everything else in there. thumb.gif

Acrylic tubing can look excellent if you take the time to really plan your runs smile.gif

It is going to be very tight! I think it should fit though. Hopefully... just barely...

Thanks! I should be able to throw everything into the case very soon!

Alright guys, got my cards in today! Woooo! Had to go down to the post office and find out why the package was undeliverable. Missing apartment number on the address was the reason! Luckily USPS held it for a few days to see if whoever was supposed to receive was checking the tracking and saw something was not correct. So maybe some photos tonight? biggrin.gif

Well I'm still undecided. Although after some research, the whole PETG vs Acrylic debate is hurting my head 😂

Oh I thought the PSU would hang over the CPU block, but it's so darn short! Looks pretty darn great.

You have a lot of room in the case to do some nice bends with acrylic, it would look good!

Thanks! I thought it would too but I didn't realize there is far more space between the I/O plate and the CPU on an mATX board than an ITX board so the PSU doesn't block everything like in the Compact Splash.

Thank you! I really like the motherboard too! I'm thinking about painting it black devil-smiley-019.gif

Well got some disappointing news frown.gif the RAM water block doesn't fit with the PSU installed and vice versa. So, I'll have to ditch the RAM blocks. I'm going to keep the EK heat spreaders though because they look boss. I'll see if I can find some replacement Corsair Dominator fins to throw on top of them so I have EK Dominator RAM biggrin.gif

Update 5 - Installing Blocks

Put the RAM and CPU blocks on their respective parts this weekend. Also filled the loop and turned it on only to discover it won't boot. So I have to take it all apart and find out why. Enjoy the pictures in the mean time.

IHqnEMbh.jpg

Using some spare RAM since finding a sponsor for RAM is about as easy as finding a unicorn.

50twb70h.jpg

Plain packaging from EK for the Monarch modules.

SPS4gsNh.jpg

About 30 seconds with a heat gun on low was enough to remove loosen the adhesive. Ewww ugly green PCBs.

V0nXrjHh.jpg

Lining everything up.

u7XpuRDh.jpg

fI6hTc0h.jpg

Assembled! And yes, I did remove the protective stickers smile.gif did that with the remaining two modules and then threw them in the system.

S04jKQPh.jpg

CPU block.

8fbkvYLh.jpg

Box contents.

O9D4ESmh.jpg

Block itself.

nWZW6mfh.jpg

No scratches at all!

6cpjoI5h.jpg

Don't forget to always remove!

cqssXiYh.jpg

So shiny!

Tried some outdoor shots but they aren't the best. There is supposed to be a blanket of snow on the ground this time of year here but ya know, "weather." Instead, it's bright and sunny, when it's not raining that is.

N0p4dnbh.jpg

Going to change loop order so I can flip the block around and have the EK logo facing the right way. Can't figure out how to remove the logo without scratching the hell out of the block.

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures!
