Home theatre rebuild, with home-frosted hard tube

Well this isn't much of a 'project', more of a quick 2-day rebuild of a rig that has now come full circle. It *used* to be on a Core P3 case with a single 420 rad, but I wanted more rad space for gaming, so it got moved into a Lian-Li Dynamic XL with triple 360s. But now this rig servers as my 'couch potato' station, where I watch YouTube, snooker, etc. No gaming on this one anymore, so I decided to rebuild it back into (err onto) the ThermalTake Core P3.

Yeah I know everyone here hates TT, but I really like the P3 / P5 cases, mainly because I'm a lazy sack and they're really easy to work on. But this time I decided on a little twist, I sanded the 16mm acrylic tube for a home-made 'frosted' look.

System specs for those who care:

Ryzen 3700x 8 core
Asus Crosshair VII Hero X470 motherboard / EK Monoblock
32GB (4 x 8G G.Skill 3600 CL16 RAM (technically it's 3200/CL14, but runs at 3600/CL16)
AMD Radeon VII GPU / EK Vector GPU block
2 x 2TB Micron SATA SSDs in RAID0
Asus WiFi card
ThermalTake Core P3 White Edition
Corsair AX850 850W PSU

Singularity Computers D5 pump top / reservoir
Alphacool UT60 420mm radiator, white edition
Fractal Design Prisma AL-140 PWM RGB fans
Barrowch flow meter / temp sensor
Darkside 16mm hard tube fittings / 90 degree fittings, white
16mm acrylic tube, lazily hand frosted by me with a 400 grit sanding pad

I do like my white / purple color schemes I must say:

From a distance, the sanding job came out ok:

Another lazy man staple: only single 90 degree bends. God bless cheap Darkside extension fittings!!

Things mostly line up....mostly.

I must waste excessive amounts of money in every build, this is water cooling law:

Guts: ThreadRipper 2950X / GB Aorus Xtreme X399 / 64GB TridentZ Royal 3600CL16 / Zotac GTX 1080Ti x2 / EVGA 1000W PSU
Storage: 6TB RAID0 NVME array (ADATA SX8200 Pro 2TB x 3)
Water Cooling: HeatKiller TR4-Pro CPU block / HeatKiller IV GPU blocks / 360mm Darskide LP360 rads x 3 / Heatkiller reservoir
