Current specs and final OK my goal to get 5.2 did not go as I wished. I did get it stable but the PC just ran a little hotter then I would like. I will be keeping it at 5.1 gzh

This PC was built to be a powerhouse able to do anything you can trow at it. Right now I am still using a old ASUS VG278Q but plan to replace this with ROG SWIFT PG35VQ if it ever comes out.
The goal is to get a stable 5.2gzh clock, what is not asking allot if ya compare this to my old i7 980x what went from 3.33gzh to 5gzh stable.
Right now it is stable at 5gzh at idle 32c and under load 67c.
The ram was not on part pickers list, so it listed at the bottom under custom parts.
Zigma is what I named my computer.
This is the first build I have done with rigged tubes and a valve.
A few things I taken away from this build is this.
The system does not drain well with the valve since there is no opening at the top to let air in and drain smoothly. It does drain but it takes time and effort to get it to fully drain well.
If this is your first time doing a rigged build I would make sure you buy lots of extra tubes. In this build I ended up using 3 packs 6 tubes total. What is twice as much as I should have needed.
If ya want a bend right at a fitting make sure you make room for the fitting to slide and screw on. The first 3 tubes I made for the top tube was a 90 degree out, then it had to bend back in a little then 90 degree up to the rad. This worked and took 3 tubes before I got it right. Then i did not like how it looked and changed it out for a straight tube with two 45 degree to 90 degree fittings. This was way easier and I feel looks better. It also does not get in the way of my ram, if I ever need to remove that later...
The EKWB pump/tanks look like they are easy to configure, but they are not. I broke a $200 tank/pump setup trying to remove the logo and turn the tank 90 degrees to the left. I did not want a tube to go right in front of my tank, so I just ended up getting a 2end one and used two 90 degree fittings to move the pipe to the right. Also remember all the fittings in this build are metal to metal so no need to worry about over tighten, but the pump is plastic, It not hard to over tighten a fitting to the pump and break the treads in the port. What sucks when ya need a 1/8 more turn to get things to line up right. The 1/8 turn will risk breaking the treads on your pump. A fix for this is using a male to female fitting and tighten them together to the get things to line up right. This case does have holes to mount a rad up top, but not where I wanted my rad. I had to drill new holes to mount my rad closer to the front, to get that straight tube down to my pump.
Anyway I hope you enjoy the build, it not fully done yet since I am still waiting on a monitor and there still a few things I like to change in this case. I also want a TI video card, but I am waiting for the next gen after the 2080.
