LOL! I have all my Components in my case, but I run all my cooling up on a shelf, with Pumps and Rads, and it does make it easy to fill, drain, and clean dust. Right now cables are everywhere, but next weekend I plan on tiding it all up. It also has the advantage of the Rads getting Fresh air, gets you another degree c or so, lol.

LOL! I love it!

Thats sounds a lot like my child hood. My dad was an AMD Employee back in the bay area when I was 5. He used to bring home all kinds of cool computer stuff and show it to me. We built my first PC Together when I was 6 Years Old (early 1990's), one of my earliest memories. Crazy how times have changed since then.

I used to have a very similar setup with two open mobos on my left side of the desk, but I'm a bit careless with 'Starbucks Venti' coffee cups and such...so back to safety distancing (long before social distancing was a thing)

In fact, I even bought both from Microcenter and ended up keeping the 3rd rad for that extra bit of cooling. While temps are beyond great, I wish I would have kept the distro plate and installed a 50mm+ radiator in push/pull on the bottom, keeping the 38mm 360 rad on top. Temps would have been pretty close to what they are now and the distro plate would have made for MUCH cleaner/easier runs. Not to mention not having to deal with figuring out pump/res combo placement.

With your setup, you could unscrew the CPU block, swap your CPU or simply reapply thermal paste and reinstall the block within a matter of minutes. Never touching the actual loop. And with your GPU connected to the loop, you could pull both blocks aside and swap out the motherboard, easily. It's a fantastic setup if you're one to upgrade components yearly, like I tend to do.
Yes, soft tubes and distro make life much easier. I already removed the CPU block like 10+ times and each time I appreciated the convenience. I can't imagine draining the loop and reassemble the runs each time, especially it is my first water-cooled build and any manipulation with it is a bit nerve-wracking.

I also replaced the pump without draining a drop of liquid from the loop. Just put the case on its side so the pump is the highest point of the loop; unscrew 4 bolts, swapped the impeller - done - no hassle required

Yesterday I delidded my chip and went direct die - all the process took me 40 min tops. That way I am trying to "compensate" missing 3rd rad in the system. will do some testing over the weekend but so far the results are very pleasing.

Per 1st attachment, the 'normal' TT Core P5 comes with a two-part assembly for vertical GPU mount. I took that apart and mounted it differently (part horizontal, part vertical mount) since I not only wanted a shroud above the PSU but also additional support for the two heavy water-blocked 2080 Tis. To that end, you also see a little 'L' bracket I added...In addition, I fabricated another longer piece and mounted it securely to the shroud that extends to the right and is anchored there for additional GPU support.

Per 2nd attachment, temps are great...the graph shows temps after a '3DM DLSS feature test' which is essentially two Port Royal benchmarks in a row (one with, one without DLSS), so quite a long stress test....dual GPUs pulled a combined 760W peak in this...
Nice! Now that you point out the L Bracket I see it, and I want one! Good Job Man!

My bad, when typing fast I often mess up, but yeah meant above PSU, not GPU, lol. You did a good job, it all looks part of the Case!

I am talking about the shelf just below the GPUS but above the PSU.
Lol! Are you saying my Corsair Box is a killer of all mice? LOL!
