The Vodka Cooled PC

So this build started off pretty straight forward. Epic PC with vodka bottles as reservoirs. I would have done actual vodka but this presented long term issues that I didn't want to deal with. The complexity came in when I decided to convert the hard lines in the front to soft tubes in the rear. I modified the case to be able to hard mount the fittings to the front of the case and to convert to soft tube fittings to the back side of the case for easier maintenance and removal of the radiators. This way, when you move the radiators around, the hard lines in the front are unaffected. This required multiple fittings to pass through the custom drilled holes in the side of the case for conversion. All the fittings where gold to match the Russian Standard Gold Vodka Bottles. The loop used separate 360mm Thermaltake radiators for both Gpu and Cpu. All the hard lines are acrylic. The entire system runs practically silent considering that there are 9 fans!

p.s. I had to drink a lot of Vodka to get these 2 cleanly cut vodka bottles to use as reservoirs. It's ok, I drank it for science.
