Water cooled shelf computer./ Liquid cooled RAM.

Good day all. I have a computer build concept that I'm working on. This computer will be built in a book shelf instead of a computer case. Why? Because I feel like it. Anyway, because it is not in a proper case, it will not have the advantages of a directed airflow when it comes to cooling. I intend to overclock all the components as far as I can take them, so I'm planning on using a liquid cooling loop.

Because I wont have good airflow over the motherboard, I was thinking that the RAM might not be cool enough for overclocking. This lead me to thinking, "What if I had liquid cooled RAM?" It's been done before and it might be the perfect solution for cooling this build.

I'm already planing to have two independent loops in the system, one for the CPU and another for the twin GPUs. How should I go about setting up water cooled RAM and what water block should I use? I prefer RGB lighting on the RAM water block, but performance is the main concern. Please give me some suggestions on what RAM water block to use and how to integrate it into the cooling loop. Here is the part list I have so far: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wd4cdX

Thanks ahead of time y'all

Regarding the part list, what is the computer for? I noticed that it is pretty overkill, especially in terms of storage. I’m curious, is it a workstation? Or is it for gaming? Do you earn money off this build? Because the part list... it scares me.

The computer is going to be used for whatever I need. Some gaming, some rendering, and quite possibly a server for gaming. I might try using this along side a few other computers as a crypto mining array. Realistically, this build will only be built when I have a lot of money. I don't know when I will have the cash to splash on this so it might be a while until it is finished. When it is built though, I'll be sure to post it up here. The main point of this build though is to have enough performance that it will never slow down no matter what I throw at it.
