Cold Fusion 2.0 #BITWIT

Build Description

This PC is an evolution of my first full water cooled system and my first attempt at hard line tubing. It originally used an EK 360 soft tube kit but I upgraded my Pump/Res combo to an EK Quantum reflection Pump/Res/Distro plate designed for the Fractal Define series. Its a gaming PC and I am a big fan of the Quake and Doom series games and try to make it to Quakecon every year when its not being canceled by a global pandemic.

Favorite Feature

Im pretty proud of my bends. I think they came out great for a first attempt.
