Well i must say you've done an amazing job and i love the build so far.
What are the specs now? like Processor GPU and Ram?
Cable management it the front of the case looks very neat and the back looks well organised too. if you were to colour match the fans to each coolant that would be awesome. maybe something you can tinker with until the UV LED strips arrive?
My build on paper seems to be taking a change of direction too from a gaming rig to a work station. just with the new born baby i dont even get to play the playstation never mind PC Games so just to get somewhere to have all my moveis organised and music and so on. still be going for the liquid cooling but probably will tone down on the GPU and few other bits.
In the mean time buying peripheral items such as spray paint and case just to have something to start on.
Thanks, I like how it turned out even though some minor tweaks will be made. I haven't added in my drain valve to the GPU loop (forgot to order one on time), and I plan on adding Thermaltake inline temperature sensors with a display (see link below).
The CPU is still a i7 6800K, OC'd to 4.3-4.35ghz, but I might go to the X299 platform I'd the upgrade is worthy of doing. RAM is 32GB like before, but now it's Corsair Dominator 3000mhz mainly for the look. My GPU hasn't changed either, I'm running a EVGA 1080FTW with full EKWB front/back.
I thought about painting my fans before realizing they won't be seen so I opted against doing so. I want to remove the center 'console' in my tower and replace it with something smaller. I was going to reach out and see if anyone can fabricate a panel for me st some point.
I don't blame you, a workstation would be great no matter how you end up designing things. I would wait for the next gen of Nvidia GPUs to debut this summer if you can. That would allow you to get more life and better performance long term at a potentially better price point.
Recently I started a new job, so time to work on my rig will be more restricted short term. I'd be happy to help out where I can if you have any questions. This was still my first OC build through it's many iterations (feels like 6 different builds) which allowed me to learn from my mistakes.
Here is the inline temperature sensor I want to add for each loop: http://ttpremium.com/product/pacific-g14-digital-temperature-sensor/
