wow! That will be quite the monstrous rig that will destroy 2560x1440 gloriously... dare I say even dabble in 4K UHD very nicely too.

I've never splurged on a watercooling build but that would be a lovely build you're putting together.

What kind of tubing are you planning? Acrylic, PETG or something else? I've always been curious about the different types of tubing after watching JayzTwoCents but of course his main complaint about acrylic was cracking which is probably only an issue if the case falls over or something.

Tbh, why not do a triple color theme? Black white and red? They do blend together quite well... look at OC3D's site where it's black, white, red and gray? It looks slick. Also, the custom sleeved power cables in tri-tone look amazing if you even plan on doing custom sleeves.

thanks dude, would love to game at 4k but for now i'll be shopping for a monitor after christmas

i'll be doing Acrylic for now, but might change.
i might do a triple color theme, still looking into custom sleeves but i think i'll be pushing my luck with time and budget..

Hmmm primochill revolver fittings <3

Quick question on how the process of a (semi) sponsored build goes: if I'm correct you have to buy the other hardware beside the case yourself, right? (In this Fractal modding.. Case.. ) Unless you send an email to a certain manufacturer explaining your ideas, show them previous work etc and if they are willing to sponsor the build. It's just because I love building (even though I've only done Nyssa until now ) and I'd find it quite a bummer having to buy hardware yourself in a semi sponsored build for a rig you'll be giving away anyway as you most likely already have a (more than) decent rig.

so let's back on topic, so I am considering a dual loop with two 10w ddc's stacked at the front, do you guys think it'll look busy or messy? or would it be best for a single D5 with a 250ml top? thoughts and opinions guys and girls?
