I am just glad to see this available as an option for both enthusiasts and budget minded custom loop builders. System builders can now have significant and efficient control over a custom loop with fan controllers costing under $60.
Paired with entry level kits, budget minded beginners and enthusiasts could put together a decent system for around $500 (depending on GPU block prices).
Plus you could always buy used on ebay. I saved a ton of money that way.
When more people have invested in custom water cooling, it tells manufacturers that there is a bigger market share available, so they will offer a better selection/price for all us in the WC community.
As far as the playground goes, well I think I need to spend a little more time playing in there just to see what I can do...
