Stealth-Cool Liquid Metal

So after many years or progressive upgrades then a couple years of no upgrade I finally got the opportunity to start from scratch. I wanted a black and white build that gave me the ability to take part in my favourite hobbies, overclocking, VR, 3D Printing and gaming yet still run my business, (cant look too crazy to visitors) so here is my creation.
"Stealth-Cool Liquid Metal" based around the Fractal Design Define R6 it has some lite 3D printed parts to route VR inputs (HDMI USB3) to the front of the case and a 3D printed PCIE insert to keep cables tidy. although its RGB motherboard all the LEDs are set to White to give, what i think, a more mature rugged and clean look.
but ill let you decide.

The important stuff:
CPU is i7-8086K Limited Edition De-Lided and Liquid Metal overclocked to 5.4Ghz (all cores) 1.475v runs around 65c or 45c above ambient and is cooled by Arctic Freezer Liquid 360

Build Image

GPU is Zotac Nvidia GTX 1080Ti and has Alphacool EisWolf M-18 water block with Liquid Metal on the die and is overclocked to 2100MHz stable (about 51c) 30c above ambient.

She is as stealthy as a B-2 Bomber and packing technology to kill for. This titan is ready for anything you can chuck at her.
