Well... It is finally completed!
A little backstory: This build took a long time... I wanted to do a beastly custom watercooling PC for a long time; it was a present to myself for graduating and finally making some real money. However, the plan was setback a couple of years since I struggled to find a job, but I was fortunate to find work earlier in 2016 and finally able to get my dream build started.
Build Process: I started planning the build back in October, 2016. with the intention of pairing a i7-6700k with a GTX 1080, but then news of Kaby Lake and 1080 ti push my plan back to now. I bought most of watercooling parts first with the exception of the cpu and gpu block. While waiting for the releases of the new hardwares, I actually spend the time sleeving my own cables; those were a pain, never again! The cables turn out pretty decent, but yea save your time and just buy them. I also spend alot of time planning out how where everything go (i.e. the tubing, wire, reservoir, pump). So yea, my advise for those who plan on doing a custom watercooling loop, spend your time planning everything out. It will definitely save you alot of headache later and give you a better result. ADD MORE DETAIL LATER
Performance: All you need to know is this PC is a beast! It is the most powerful pc I've built. Getting great temperature with the watercooling, fan noise is still present but not annoying (like a quiet hum). Minor grip is the cpu temp still seems a bit high, maybe it just because of Kaby Lake architecture. Will definitely play with the overclocking later.
Conclusion: Even though this build took a long to come to fruition (2.5 years), I'm very happy with how everything turn out overall. I had a blast building the PC and doing the watercooling loop. Some advice for time first time watercooler, do some practice loop first and test it out without the PC components installed inside the case to get familiar with doing the loop and connecting the fittings! This will help you later when you doing the loop for real.
