The W-Machine

This is my very first custom built water cooled system. It took me months to build and I did it by hand with only the help of a drill and a sanding machine in my living room as I don't have a shed or a shop or even a workbench to do so. It may not be as futuristic and flashy as some of the other builds, but I am proud of it EmojiIt's basically a revamped decade old Cooler Master HAF 932 which I had just sitting around doing nothing useful. The build is a tad lighter than baby blue - https://www.color-hex.com/color/bee1ff (Wriyon Blue), White and a few accents of really dark green, sky-, rain- and electric blue.
Addendum to the hardware specs: the EKWB monoblock is an EK monoblock MSI x470 pro Carbon RGB, not an M7, but it's similar and it wasn't in the options, so I chose the M7 one instead. Also, the Patriot Hellfire 480 gig is actually an nvme m2, not an ssd - wonder why it wasn't among the options.
