My first build where I put more effort into cooling and noise efficiency, aiming for a nice performance to noise ratio, and cable management (given the design of the PC-O11 I really needed to anyways). Went for a overall blue and black look, with the blue reflecting really well on the white motherboard components and white cables. At some point I'll look at getting white sleeves for the AIO coolers as well. Still not happy with how the 8pin CPU and the 24pin ATX cables are looking, but will tackle that at a later date. Will add some pics of the desk setup later as well.

The CPU is cooled with an NZXT X72 and 3 Corsair ML120 Pro RGB fans set as exhaust. The GPU is cooled by an NZXT Kraken G12 and an NZXT X62 with two Thermaltake Riing 14 Plus fans as intake. The bottom of the case has 3 Thermaltake Riing 12 Plus fans also set as intake.

Yo, I'm really late to this. But I've been looking at blue themed pc's while listening to "I'm Blue" by Eiffel 65 and this build rocks! Mad respect!
