Little Liquid Nightmare

Hi everyone:

Finished the build like 3 months ago but till yesterday I couldn´t take proper pics of it.

I work and game with my PC at around 30-50cm. away so that the first aircooling attempt I made was not the best approach to this type of case.
What bothered me most was the jet engine noise that came from the GPU fans. CPU cooling was done with the Noctua NHD15S with the Chromax accesories in white. Love this cooler and I miss how it looked inside the case.

Once I decided the watercooling option there was the pump-res placement trouble. I spend almost two weeks looking for pump-res combos that would fit inside the case but also let some space left for the loop. After that I started to evaluate the option to use the reservoirs I´ve been using in other builds. I decided to place them on top of the case. It gives a overall industrial look and I think that the soft tubing help that feeling too.

Watercooling is done in Barrow, Bykski and EK brands.
