Blue Lightening

UPDATE: Added a res lol, couldn't do without it. Also, new CPU 3600XT to keep it modest.

This is my first PC build ever. I've been wanting to build one for years, and learned an enormous amount from watching youtube. It didn't start out custom water-cooled, and I've gone through various hardware configurations since I originally built this back in March. Slowly settled on the hardware I'm running now, and not quite done yet with mods and odds and ends. I'm very happy with how my first attempt at a hard line custom loop came out, absolutely no leaks from jump! From all the possible water-cooling configurations I've seen, I wanted to build my own loop consisting of two oversized radiators BETWEEN the components. So: GPU, then rad, then CPU, to rad, back to pump. It works amazing, in my GPU overclocking attempts the temp never reached higher 40-44 Celcius and power is always my only limiter. The CPU still hits temps as high at 65-70 under synthetic loads, which I think has to do with my extremely cheap copout with a noname CPU block off eBay. All parts are copper/brass with some nickel plating, absolutely no aluminum.
