Reactor

My first custom water loop build. Originally posted with a 5700 XT and 5600X but I was able to get my hands on a 6800 XT and 5800X. I'm still surprised I had such good luck. Both of those parts are going to be reused to make a smaller travel computer.

Part of my inspiration was open pool nuclear reactors. I still want to figure out an RGB solution for the water block so I can replicate Cherenkov radiation. While the Evolv X case has an integrated RGB controller, it doesn't quite hit the color I want. I also didn't want to get a different motherboard because 1) I already had this one, 2) I really like how this one looks, and 3) I didn't want to buy another one. I am hoping that someone will create a USB aRGB controller like regular RGB ones that exist.
