Built this out to replace my 10 year old system. Hoping (expecting) to get a comparable amount of time out of this system.
This was my first excursion into water cooling. Took me at least a week to get all the hard line bent and situated. The rest was pretty easy.
Been running the system for 4 - 5ish months now and it's performing great. The thing is silent, which is amazing to me with all those radiator fans. The only thing I have found frustrating is the state that the software to control the rgb of the fans, power supply and video cards is in. Seems very clunky and finicky. Took me a while to get the color schemes set up like I wanted and to figure out what processes/services I had to leave running in the background and what needed to be killed because it was interfering with the os idling. They've made their hardware great, but are lacking in catching the software up. Regardless, very happy with the system and all indicators are it's going to last a good long time.
