You forgot to add that you needed to sacrofice some orphans to a minor deity to summon him and then trap said deity into your computer and put it to good work!

Dude thats a sick machine

Always wanted to do water cooling just never wanted to risk it.

Nice build!

That's way neater than any of my PC's would be. I'm terribly sloppy with cables.
