I went with what I could pick up at Micro Center!

The custom loop cost about $1100. I stress this to anyone that is looking to get in to custom loops though-- custom loops are generally more about aesthetics than performance since you can get good-enough performance from using an AIO CPU cooler and even a hybrid cooled GPU. But if you really want a unique, beautiful PC then absolutely go for it!

Bending the tubes wasn't actually that difficult, it's just intimidating and takes some patience. It was fun!

Both the top and front radiator are 30mm so I couldn't do any thinner here unfortunately. I would probably look for a motherboard where the RAM slots were slightly lower on the board.

The RAM is too high up on this motherboard so it interferes with where the middle fan would be on the top radiator.

Some cable combs and some gold sleeved cables could definitely help! Thanks!

Thanks! Hopefully the next iteration of this build can include a bit more gold, maybe a gold CPU waterblock as a focal point?

Honestly I picked it purely for aesthetic reasons! It gets the job done including some mild overclocking but it's not the best BIOS I've ever used.

There are actually 2 other ports at the top of the reservoir so filling it through one of those was easy.

Thanks for the kind words!
