What's up OCN,
I started this build out as something I was putting together for my kids so we can game together. After purchasing the parvum case and buying the first bit of hardware I started realizing that their rig was starting to turn out to have better parts than mine. So I decided that I would kick them down my current rig minus the two 980ti's that I have in it and take the new build for myself. (Father of the year)
My last build was my first time doing liquid cooling so I had a learning curve that I had go through. Now I have a better understanding of it should have a much easier go at it. (I'll still have to learn to sleeve wires)
I decided to go with borosilicate glass tubing because that's what I do for a living I'm a borosilicate lampworker and seen that people are using in their builds and was like here's something I can do. I had a really hard time bending acrylic on my last build and opted out and took the fitting route after I failed A lot. With boro this is not the case I use 12mm tubing everyday and I can bend it like it's my job (pun intended). I did some practice bends last night and I had no problem getting a perfect 90 with out a form just by eye and hand. I'll be building a form this weekend so all my bends will be exactly the same.
So here's my parts list I have a good amount of the parts already more in route and i should have everything in by the end of the month except the parvum case not sure how long that's going to take. I plan on polishing every bit of acrylic that's going in here It's going to be long and tedious but worth it in the end. I also plan on painting the fan blades and sleeving my own wires this time.
