Water-cooled ASUS Maximus XI Extreme + Evolv X

Level 7

My first Water-cooled Build.
My previous PC must have been 10 years old, Intel i7 920. Thought I had go nuts at least once in my life.

It's still a bit of a work in progress.

I was inspired by the water cooled Evolv X at Computex. However I wanted it to be different with the vertical GPU and tubing. I had to make a bracket to move the Res forward so that it would fit just right, although it blends in quite well. Also there is a small metal block under the GPU bracket to hold the GPU up at the increased height.

Still to do:
- Tubing will be redone, as it is far from perfect.
- I will either get a new PSU or at least cover the label.
- Likely a Monoblock if bitpower or Ek release one that appeals to me (Might grab a 9900k, as i've got another use for the 8700k)
- Figure out if the existing vertical slots can be used for something... Considered an intel 905p, though that seems way overkill (And expensive)

With the lighting on, the inside of your PC makes me think of this:

With the lighting off, the inside of your PC makes me think of this:

Clean, solid build. Looks serene with the blue lighting, but very mechanical and manly with no lighting.

I want to see your sandwich assembly next. Don't let me down.
I'd like to deploy my troops in her country.
