Sorry, I just got this. I cut into the case between the two grommets to allow the cables to stay horizontal.

Actual retail is $149 and I ended up paying $120 at the time. Complete waste of money. Rated as one of the best but I can hardly justify it or endorse it after using it now. Feels good and is responsive and some customization options, but so are others at half the cost.

I tend to agree. I had the same 970's in SLI and it pushed my 3440x1440 on ultra settings in near everything. The only reason why I upgraded to the 1080ti was Assassins Creed Origin would not work in SLI nor would the RIFT. But man, those 970's were incredible.

It was a purple metallic by Testors, a one coat lacquer from a local hobby store. It’s a paint for plastic models, hope that helps but I lost the cap that has the actual paint code.

I couldn’t begin to tell you the exact costs for all the parts because I couldn’t afford all of it in one time. I will say the most glaring cost is the graphics card. Pcpartpicker didn’t have the correct GPU surprisingly but I managed to get it for $800 other than that I would say it’s all pretty close to accurate. The monitor I did get second hand for $400 so that was an excellent find as well!

Thank you for the kind words, it’s greatly appreciated and I’m stunned that it was featured. Very humbled!

Fortunately they were on Amazon and when you add a specific part, it asks for a URL and so I just copy and pasted the link. In doing so, it uploaded the pictures. Hope that helps.

That’s why I tried putting all the parts of the build in PCpartpicker because I didn’t really have any idea on the cost. It nickels and dimes you. My previous build had the AIO and honestly thought it looked great. Can’t beat the price and performance & looks good to boot. If you have the money though and building is a hobby, I couldn’t recommend a custom loop more. Just so much satisfaction goes with it! Best of luck to you on your next build!

The temps are incredibly stable with the GPU at low 30’s while being overclocked to just over 2k Mhz it runs under stress at around 40c but the card won’t push past the 2.1 MHz.

The CPU is far more jumpy and not sure why. It stays around 35c at idle but peaks at around 70c when stressed. But between simple usage it’s very jumpy from 35 to 55. CPU is clocked at 4.5.

And thank you!

I agree, the maintenance is the reason why I went clear coolant as opposed to color as not to stain and can go far longer between the maintenance.

And thank you! If someone has the funds, I couldn't recommend it more as the experience was rewarding!

My wife's favorite color is purple - hence the nails and color scheme ;)

I wouldn't recommend it but its certainly possible. You would need to drain it and get additional fittings to work with the soft tubing that comes with your AIO.
