I'm new here and new to custom watercooling builds in general. So it all started back in January 2016 when I fulfilled my dream of building my own gaming pc. I actually started off with an AIO cooling solution back then already but since it was my first build I wanted nothing to complicated to start off. At that point I was bitten by the bug and there was no turning back anymore. The only thing I was doing was research and reading forums about builds and ideas. The first build was red and black themed (yeah typical and lame by now) but I actually loved it. So in that year pretty much all my money went into my rig with upgrading hardware and changing up things aesthetically. I just wasnt fully satisfied until now. So there came christmas and I knew I wanted a new montior but the model I wanted was just too #### expensive.
So I was thinking for weeks until I found a picture of the Core P5 with a custom loop configuration and I knew I needed something like that. Only problem was I absolutely had no idea about watercooling. I did my research for weeks trying to figure out what I need and what looks good. Hardline or soft? PETG or acrylic? What pump? Bending how? But I really wanted to know everything about this and so sucked in every bit of tip or trick on the inet. So there I was ordering all my parts and boy I can tell you I was shocked at first because of the price! Really didnt think it would bust my wallet this bad! But after this build Im so into watercooling or modding in general its unbelievable! But I think I talked enough.. if theres any questions or anything just hit me up! I present my own green beast:
