I saw your post on reddit. Have you considered upgrading the S8S to S8 to get a bit of room for the GPU waterblock? You can also replace the GPU with a reference one.

This is an entirely different PC. The one you saw on reddit was my Editing PC. I need to take a look and see how much it would cost to grab everything. I would need front and back + Front cover and new side doors for both sides.

^ I Barely Had Enough Tubing. I just Made it with zero extra tubing.





^ I was trying for a Darker Blue, I just couldn't get the color any darker.



^ So Much for Seeing the flow Wheel. I had an extra one laying around. I would be a bit annoyed if I paid for it for this build and I couldn't see anything.



^ Then I ran out of Fluid. That one 60mm radiators holds allot.


So far the only issue is with the Hardware Labs 240 SR2. It's a bit noisy when the liquid goes up and empty's into the radiator. I'm hoping it's because I didn't have enough liquid and theirs air in the loop.
