Purple is My Favorite Color

First custom loop build. Always thought parallel loops look really cool so I decided to give it a go.
Took about two weeks total to plan and fit everything together.
I had to take a dremel to the front PSU cutout to fit that big ol' pump/res in there, probably should have gone with a slightly bigger case.
Anyways, I learned a lot from finally doing a custom loop instead of just watching other people build. I'm really happy about how it turned out!

A couple of other things:

  • The pump and fan curves and all the RGB are controlled with the Commander Pro through iCue based on liquid temp. Didn't want four/five pieces of bloatware so I just went with one. piratedog_tech on ebay sells adapters for the Corsair rgb headers into regular 3-pin a-rgb headers.
  • Cables are from ModOne, they are more expensive but has a better selection of colors and customizability than Cablemod. They have like 3 shades of white and 4 shades of gray/black, and a bunch of dual tone color combos. You can even change the connector color to white! The only thing is they don't have the aluminum cable combs that Cablemod has.
