This build was a blast to do and many Thanks to Intel for the opportunity to showcase it live on demo with them at PAX SOUTH!
I really wanted something that would pop out in a dimly lit area and showcase the looks of the build. The ek UV blue coolant is just purely beautiful and when lit with light it really pops! With Intel in mind I went for a nickel/silver and blue look. The Gigabyte Z170 Gaming G1 motherboard is one of my favorites to use but the bright red/white just wouldn't work for this. After considering other options I just decided to risk it all and paint it. I chose silver to match with the blocks and the outrageous number of fittings Ill be using. All in all I'd say the paint job came out decent, it was better the first time but I tried getting fancy and adding blue... needless to say I was up all night fixing my mistake.
I love the way the loop turned out in this build. Originally I didn't plan on water-cooling the memory, but it just made the loop look much cleaner and I had a spare block so why not? I will also say having the 2x45 fittings saved my life with certain bends for this. Really great fittings to have if your not exactly 100% sure how your run is going to go, as they rotate and allow some bends. The SLI 980Ti's are running amazing and will be playing Just Cause 3 at the show.
All in all it was a blast and for having a last minute deadline ( only 2 days to build and ship!) its one of my favorites.
