Home theatre rig rebuild

Howdy folks, just a quick 'rebuild' of my home theatre rig, nothing terribly exciting. I had this mounted on the Core P3 case a while back, then decided a single 420 rad wasn't enough, since I was doing some gaming on it. The guts then got moved into a soft tube loop in a Lian Li PC O11 Dynamic XL with triple 360s. Now it has come full circle since I'm not gaming on this thing anymore, I decided to rebuild it on the P3 again, this time with a small twist: I sanded the acrylic tube for a 'frosted' look.

System specs for those who care:

Ryzen 3700x 8 core
Asus Crosshair VII Hero X470 motherboard / EK Monoblock
32GB (4 x 8GB) G.Skill 3600 CL16 RAM (technically it's 3200/CL14, but runs at 3600/CL16)
AMD Radeon VII GPU / EK Vector GPU block
1TB ADATA SX8200 NVME SSD
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

Glamor shot from the worlds most disgusting laundry room:


For a quick and dirty sanding job, it doesn't look too awful:


My drain system is threatening my tiny manhood:


All done up:


You can see it's not the cleanest sanding job up close, but it'll do:


Like most of my builds, I have a fetish for simplicity, each of these tubes is only ONE 90 degree bend. All hail spacer fittings!!!


I love puuuuuuuurple:


I also love information I can see without using monitoring programs!

its all good with a D5 pump

your 90's aren't that restricting like elbow fittings
