Mini-Nickel

I put the Fill port next to aerial on top and the drain port by PSU at the rear lowest possible point.. Push / Pull config,
x2 Be Quiet! 140mm (front intake fans.)
x3 Noctua Industrial 120mm (all Push)
x2 Noctua slim 120mm (Top Pull)
x1 Be Quiet 140mm (Rear Pull)
My first Liquid build has been fun. I used not a single rotary fitting.
Fans are connected by dual Noctua Fan Controllers controlled and tuned by the motherboard PWM
I have used silicon grommets, anti-kink coil 1/2" - 3/4" with EKWB ZMT Black Tubing.
A 120mm Phantek Aluminium RGB bracket is used as a more secure mounting base for the pump bracket.
For Gaming Sessions I Remove the front Panel for better airflow.
I like so many others await the release of ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ and x4 lane 810p Optane 22x80mm.

(If I were to do this build over. I would use Phanteks Evolve X Case and the new ASUS ROG GENE Motherboard.
I would also use the ASUS RTX 2080 turbo model which could be made into a single slot card)

A big shout out to Computer Lounge in New Zealand for their great service and products.
