    Probably performs quite good, but.. Looks quite bad, tbqh.
    Watercooling CPU only with that amount of radiator-space, bent tubing, non-effort in cable management, PSU upside down, HDD loose in a HDD slot, a random fan in the middle of it all.
    You've got some work to do, but it can turn out really nicely!

    I was watercooling a GPU but I took the GPU out and I don't want to spend $250 on blocks for the lightnings. Nothing wrong with overkill, especially for a SBe running at 1.48v.
    Tubing is partially the result of bay res (which I won't do next time). You need extra tubing to take it in and out for refills. I could probably cut it down an inch or so but not a big deal to me.
    Cables are fine. Only ones really sticking out are the GPU ones and I don't have much more room in the back panel for 4 8pin cables.
    PSU... well that's all preference. Not like the PSU is going to over heat from the air coming off the GPU >.<
    Why do I need a full 3 slot HDD bay for one hard drive. Looked worse that way imo.
    Random fan was because I was stress testing the CPU. The MOFSETs on X79 boards run notoriously hot and mine sits in an awkward place behind the radiator, so the fan was to keep it cool. I could take it out just haven't gotten around to it. Not entirely sure I'm happy with 4.8GHz.

    Although I do appreciate feedback. There is a method behind the madness for everything you mentioned. If I was to do anything it would be custom sleeve the cables but I feel like sleeved cables are a waste of time/money for anything but a show rig.

    I'm confused. A few bucks for sleeving is a waste of time and money.. when you have a Rampage IV, Dual Lightnings, and seasonic platinum? It's like ordering a $200 steak and then bitching about the price of your diet coke. >.>

    You mean an excuse I gotta agree with Tetris, it looks really messy, especially considering the amount of money that went into it.

    I'm not questioning the necessity or the usefulness of certain things, I am saying that it doesn't look good.
    EDIT: In my personal subjective opinion based on the quality I would be expecting from you specifically!

    While I agree with you on most of it but... the PSU is upside down? Seriously? You're basis for this suggestion is looks and you're recommending that he shows the data plate instead? Or are you concerned about some extra heat mounting the PSU this way would generate? (hope not)

    @Sweetleader: That first hose towards the front (guessing from the pump to the rad) is somewhat kinked. I'm no WC novice, but even I know that's never a good thing do just "deal with".

    Method... excuse. Whatever word you want to pick the "mess" doesn't effect the preformance and that's really all I care about.

    Also yes sleeved cables imo are a waste of money as they provide no preformance benefit to anything. You could argue the same for the Formula but the Sabertooth was giving me a lot of problems and it's takes over a month for a single RMA. Ain't nobody got time forthat.

    But I still appreciate the feedback . I took the liberty of moving the gpu cables behind the motherboard which helped clean it up a tad. But really everything else is just part of the build.
