Dark Hose

This is my O-11 air, this case is pretty great but its actually really cramped keep scrolling and youll see what i mean. found a use for the empty bit of space on top of the case by adding some flairs. I hide the decals under the top cover because decals are stupid, i think ill keep adding more as i swap parts. Used quick disconnects for the cpu and gpu. Found a bit of space for a air exhaust valve from bitspower, theres enough room here to just get my finger in there to press the valve. I then put a quick disconnect on a rotary T fitting for draining the loop, it swivels so access is very simple. I also drilled a pass through so i dont have to do a tube run over the ram, ram isnt RGB though. On the back side of the case it connects to a multiport res from xpcs. I had to cut out a bit of the wire management area so that the fill port of my quick disconnect had clearance for the coupler to properly secure.

when installing the acrylic mounts for the tube res I had to get after market screws and drill out some countersinks on the res mounting so i had the space at the bottom of my case between the res and and the gpu block, theres about 3mm of room left i then used a piece of neoprene to prop up the gpu block so it wont sag.

speaking of space, its a tight fit everywhere, I needed to buy an extension cable for the front panel usb 3.0 because there's no room between the bottom fans and the motherboard to connect the regular cable normally.Also theres barley any room above the motherboard I/O, I had to get a fixed rotary and an extension fitting to connect the tube run for the top res since a rotary wouldnt fit, finally had another tight fit with the side res in the main chamber, used two 90 fittings here to connect the run.

after assembling this build I only have one reaction. see the final pic
