Thermaltake Core P5, Custom Loop, Daily Driver 2x RTX 2080Ti - 9900k - 4 2TB M.2 on a RAID controller!?

I built this for school, work, and gaming during my free time, so I wanted an all-purpose machine that could keep my workflow moving but still perform at the top for gaming. This was my first custom water cooling loop and I had to learn quite a bit in order to get it done, but I think I am satisfied with the results. I still haven't decided if I'm going to carry the theme any further, I have considered adding in a generation one Autobots emblem to pay homage to a rig I built over fifteen years ago, I ordered matching cable mod red and white cables if I do decide to go that route. Let me know what you think, or if you have an opinion on how I could improve the aesthetics of the build.
