Really like the black/white scheme!
Any plans to add the GPU to the custom loop?

I was going to add a vertical riser card and do the GPU but not sure if i should or not i have the space to add it into the loop but never have cooled a GPU before and not sure if i would see benfit.

Do people generally do this ?! i like the idea of it!!

Water cooling the GPU will bring huge benefits, generally it's the pinnacle of custom cooled system.
Significant drop in load temperatures and noise and always utilizing full boost frequencies of the graphics card.

You have more than enough radiator surface (2x 360 radiator) and plenty of space. You can freely add the GPU to your existing custom loop.

@tomcoleman - you should edit your memory specs image to obfuscate your serial number.
