Soft is the New Hard

Had so much fun building this computer - my first custom water-cooled system!
Needed to Dremel the bottom of the case a bit to fit the second EKWB radiator SE on the middle right. Also, drilled three holes through the case above the CPU for the tubing, which also runs in the back of the case. Those holes were tough to drill! The metal is quite thin, but wow not so easy and have to be super precise. Cooling, tubing, fittings and fluids are all EKWB. Visible tubing is 16/10mm with some of the tubing in back being 13/10mm. EK Navy Blue Cryofuel is keeping her cool. Went with a blue theme, but still tinkering with the best color combinations.
I would welcome any comments or questions.
