When I tell people I have sli 1080ti's they always ask WHY? and this is why, it just looks SO good
everything had to be vertical or horizontal
The pump res is held in place by the acrylic slats. completely way too much effort for what it was worth. next time I'm using a laser cutter
Going to make a custom backplate for the GPU, although i like the Aorus logo it doesn't match how clean the rest of the build is
I really recommend people try making false acrylic panels for their builds, its easy, cheap and the results are amazing.
pre build/parts hall. sadly doesn't show the true insanity of the number of fittings involved. also the monster rad is for a external rad set up which i plan on doing in the near future to help temps.
It took a lot of effort/time but i couldn't be happier how it turned out. This was only meant to be a build to last me 6 months before I transplanted everything into a extremely modded TJ11 which was going to be my 'dream pc' build. But this one got more and more crazy as I went forward with its loop design and the acrylic work. The end result is its the first custom rig that I've finished that i still catch myself staring at weeks after its completion. So I'm leaning towards keeping it for the long run!, i think it would hurt too much to pull it apart (I did too good of a job, rats!).
the tubing is nickel coated brass by barrow, and the fittings are also barrow. 14mm. i highly highly recommend both the fittings and metal tubing, as quality was top notch and ease of use was also super high. The only thing is the cost of going with metal tubing; SOO many fittings. i was very surprised how easy the metal tubing was to cut with just a basic pipe cutter, meaning its basically easier to work with than acrylic tubing.
