Blue Beast

Built in late 2016 this was my first ever attempt at water cooling and I hit the ground running. I was working at a plumbing fixture manufacturer for a bit so I decided to jump right into custom bend water cooling. This was my no compromise build and was meant to be a full project and to go to every extreme (hahaha water cooled ram, who actually needs that).

The hard drive is used for mass media, music movies etc
The 1TB nvme is my steam games drive
The other nvme is for software and boot drive

Parts not listed on the main list:
Full custom CableMod Cables
Alphacool 580 radiator
Alphacool flow indicator
EKWB RAM Monarch X4
Electop fan hub

Note* I don't care for RGB, none of my builds have RGB.
