Purple Haze 2.0

My dream build finally come true. This is my first full custom water loop. (Thanks Jayztwocents)… literally watched all your water cooling tutorials like 9 times. I've got a nice chip for bench-marking I can pull off 5.3 Ghz Verified in Time Spy Extreme, everyday I run 5.177 just because I can. Water block for GPU was a Christmas present from wifey under water I see it sometimes hit 2075 Mhz, From what was before at best 2012, Ram at 3600Mhz. UV purple coolant. The resivour is mounted to a custom wood panel that I stained and over-layed over the metal backing to clean up the build also was my first attempt at a "case mod" just to test my hand.. its not perfect but I love the way it turned out. It is also HDD and SSD free, Just a single 1TB M.2 in the motherboard.
