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 was needed for it and drawing the design for the build so the tubing all works on both side. As it is my first buid, it took me a total of 2 weeks on building the computer and putting it all together (working full time job weekdays) roughly 95 hours building it.
I used hard tubing on the front and backside as there was enough room for it. I chose the Thermaltake view 91 Case as it was the only case suitable for the tubing I was going for and it was perfect.
I wanted to cool down the GPU and CPU as much as possible so i even opened up the CPU, wiped off the thermal paste on the inside and outside and applied liquid metal. I then opened up the GPU and wiped off the thermal paste on the inside and applied liquid metal.
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.
