I've been on [H] for YEARS and never built anything I felt worthy. Hopefully this one is different enough to be here. If anyone that see's this is thinking about watercooling and can afford it, I highly recommend it. Tons of fun and love the results.

It's not perfect, I know. There's a few things I want to fix, the droop down to the first GPU and I'm still not happy with how the cables look.

That is really awesome!
Excellent work, pics do not do the lighting justice. The video is where it's at.

Excellent work! Am very impressed, and it is definitely "worthy."

As others have said, the pictures do not do it justice, the video says it all.

Lookin' great. The LEDs you used are pretty neet-o, but I wish they sold them in larger strands.

I'm assuming this is just DMX style lighting. You can get strands up to 100ft, but you need individually IC'd (6803IC) LED's (usually SMD 5050) for RGB addressing per LED.

And, well, that's pretty damn cool.
