Showtime

This is my first ever custom loop build and my 3rd build in the last 3 years. I was really nervous doing something on this scale, not only monetary wise but was not sure my skill level was there yet. After lots of videos and talking with other builders on what works and what does not I decided to take the plunge. I was debating a case for a bit and was able to get a Caselabs Sma8-a and I knew then I had to step it up after seeing others have done in their cases. After about 2 months of gathering parts and notes the build started and here we are. https://forums.evga.com/My-Caselabs-SMA8A-m2909358-p2.aspx#2932760

P.S The cpu and gpu have watercool heatkiller blocks on them and dual Ek Revo d5 combos with 250 tubes
