Casual Gamer Build

Build Description

This is my first custom water cooled loop. It's a nice, quiet, fast build. Does really well on games like Assassin's Creed, Shadow of War, and the Division 2.

Favorite Feature

I really like how my loop turned out. It took a couple tries, to get the tubes not to block the video card. Had to drain the loop and try again.
