MSI/EK 30th Anniversary

For the 30th anniversary of MSI they partnered up with EK and created a fullcover GTX1080 AIO EK solution for their top end card.
Due to issues with the AIO leaking they were never sold and most of them kept by MSI offices themselves.
MSI Europe was kind enough to donate me one to use in a casemod. From there on I created something for me. Something I liked in terms of visuals. With MSI's silver coloured motherboard, EKWB's limited edition Egde CPU block. Modded EKWB limited edition MSI 30th edition GPU block. A full custom reservoir and routing block in acetal and aluminium (covers) by Mods By Faggan which I am super poud of, especially with how the 24 pin cable goes through it and the cover basically following the lines of the GPU block. And all EKWB watercooling epuipment and fans.
The entire colour combination and style was derived from the EKWB/MSI 30th anniversary waterblock and the EKWB Edge waterblock.
The Crucial, Seasonic and Phanteks parts (imho) fit the theme perfectly.
For this system I created the sleeved cables myself because I needed to do each strand individually due to be way the routingplate works.
