Disclaimer, I am not very good with tools and building construction type projects. I'm not a "professional" builder. I'm 38 and have been building PC's since the mid 90's but this is my first hardline build. I've done a dozen or so soft tube builds. This was incredibly challenging for me. I initially planned to do a mid-plate but ditched that about half way through due to the complexity of having 2 temp/flow meters specifically getting them to fit without blocking the GPU and still keeping things as symmetrical as possible.
My goal with this build was to use pass-through fittings to get things as symmetrical as possible but I realized I was a bit over my head with that due to my lack of overall construction skills.
