Hi All just finished my build the other day. Let me know what you guys think. I must say, bending acrylic tubes requires a lot of skill and patience. To be honest at one point I was about to give up and just switch to soft tubing. Although I am pleased with the overall result for my first PC Build!!

Default Most Impressive!!

I'm liking what you got going on there. I recently built my very first computer with a White Lian Li Lancool II. I'm old and apparently unimaginative, I've named it the White Wizard (after Gandalf - Lego figure currently on order) I have many Corsair parts installed also, a white AIO liquid cooler, white fans. I am currently just beginning to look at monitors, ultra-wide, in particular. What is that monitor you have there. I've been real interested in the Samsung G7. I want something that will allow me to utilize my RTX 2080 Super. Mad props on the water cooling for your first build!!! I started to do the same, but was told I'd void my GPU warranty by opening it to install the water block. I'll let it run for awhile before I go hard tube, but it's on my list of things to do. Again, Mad Props for a great looking system.

Thanks man! Yeah I called my system the 'WhiteReaper' hahaha. I was also looking at the Samsung G7 or G9 but I just can't digest paying that much money for a screen. I opted for a Titan Army brand which uses a Samsung QLED VA panel 144hz and runs perfectly with my GPU with no hiccups. This brand is local to NZ but have heard they source from the same factory as Kogan and other online retailers. I was also worried about the warranty for my GPU but since I only opted for the RTX 2060 for now as my first build. When I get to do this again, I will spend a bit more on the GPU and opt for the 2080. Thanks for your comment!
