    And some highlights from the build:

    Filling of the interconnect plate!



    Initial design of the motherboard interconnect block:




    Some parts:







    PSU reservoir - this is a modification of the one I did for Project M8, and is now made in clear akrylic!





    Prototype of the interconnect plate:





    Mounted:





    Deciding on what colors to use:



    Huge ass quad front reservoir (this baby weighs over 3 kilo and supports two loops!) which was fun to design!









    Pump setup:





    Fillports:



    Sleeving:



    Lights under each gfx card!



    Aquaero and Aquaadjust housing mounted:





    Hard tubing! All over the build, and only 90 degree turns.. This was quite a challenge!





    And the case compared to the next mod



    Dying the loop:



    And thats the highlights of this build It was a tough ride, and I hope you like it!

    Awesome work as usual!!! Those connecting plates are incredible! I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who would like to see more on the design and build work on those.
