So, this is my first post here on overclock.net, first water cooling and first case build.

I made few builds, but always only with air cooling and no modding, but this will change.
I always wanted to build pc with water cooling, but I was scared, lazy or/and with no money. But not anymore.
But why stop there, why not build your own case? But i have almost 0 experience with woodwork and not enough tools for the job. Will this stop me? NO!!
Sounds like succes? Sure does!!

PC Parts

CPU: Intel core i7 8700k
Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty Z370 GAMING K6
RAM: KINGSTON HyperX Predator DDR4 2x8GB 3000MHz CL15
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING+ 8G
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G3
Case: WOOD

Waterloop Parts
CPU Block: EK Water Blocks EK-Supremacy EVO - Nickel Plated
GPU Block: EK Water Blocks EK-FC1080 GTX TF6 - Nickel
Pump: EK Water Blocks EK-XRES 100 Revo D5 PWM (incl. pump) + EK Water Blocks EK-RES X3 - TUBE 250 (204mm)
Front radiator: EK Water Blocks EK-CoolStream SE 280 Slim (Dual)
Top radiator: EK Water Blocks EK-CoolStream SE 360 Slim (Triple)
Fittings/tubing: 10/12mm hard tubing, almost all EK

THE PLAN
plan is to make the case as small as possible, but not cramped.

-front rad will be 280 with push pull vardar fans
-top rad will be 360 with push vardar fans
-PSU at the bottom and vertically mounted GPU

slight, but sadly necessary redesign due to shorter sheet of plywood


I have quite a lot of unused wood and stuff just laying around so i will try to use it as much as possible.


LOOP PLAN

Trying to keep it simple and use as much tubing as possible.

I didnt plan on making build log, so i havent taken a lot of pictures, but i will now.

Tuned in for this. I've thought about a wood case before because of how easy it would be to fabricate, for my skills and tools at least. Lots of awesome potential.
