First Custom Hardloop Misadventure

This was my first try at custom water cooling. My initial idea was to build on the theme of the motherboard. I was going to use Mayhems dyes to create a opaque grey fluid to match the grey camo. And then incorporate some further grey/white accents throughout the case. However I ended up switching to EKs Cryofuel Solid Azure Blue upon finding out about some of the issues with Mayhems stability people were having and some of their stuff being downgraded to Exhibition use. I wanted to simply fill this loop and be able to not worry about it for 6-8 months. However I still had horrible issues with both the original and RMA EK fluid they sent me. I filtered out the fluid I got via RMA and am using that for now since i couldn't wait any longer to get my system back running. Hopefully the fluid will still do its anti-corrosion/anti-organic build up thing. I feel like all that was left in the coffee filters were excess UV reactive stuff. So for now the build will sit as is and on hold I will be experimenting with fluid colors and finishing my accents in the near future once I save up some more.
