Roses are Red, Violets are Blue

My first water cooling build.
I wanted two different colors and i also wanted them to circle each other.
It took me weeks of planning what parts and drawing the build, as it is my first build. It took me a total of 2 weeks on building (working full time job weekdays) roughly 95 hours building it.
I also used hard tubing on the backside as there was enough room for it. I chose the Thermaltake view 91 Case as it was the only one suitable for the build i was going for and it was perfect.
I cut a sheet of plastic to the size of the back of the case and drilled holes through the case and plastic. I then spray painted the front a matte black 3 layers and a small patch on the back red also 3 layers.
The H9 in the back of the case is my nickname and signature.
