Hiya, going to be moving platform to make rendering faster for my new gameplay channel and stuff. Anyways; without further adieu:
So, I've always wanted to do a powerful mATX build, but I need to keep it watercooled. I can't stand noise. I finally settled on a case and some components, and I figured now's a good time to get started. I'm planning to go a bit nuts on the watercooling side of things here, but it's only as far as my wallet will take me. This is pretty much (as I said in the opening line) that this is for my gameplay channel

Yes, that's 840mm
of cooling in total, in an mATX
I've always loved black and red builds, and that's no different here. The case will be all black, as is. Rads, fittings and pump too. The tubing will be red; I've tried dyed water and it's not giving me the desired effect, so red tubing it is. Also the sleeved cables will be black (connectors) and red (sleeving), not to mention the motherboard is themed black and red, so it's sort of the basis of the build.
We'll get this under way soon, shall we?
