FINALLY! It's finished... kind of... posted

After months and months of work my personal rig is up and running at home. It still is not quite where I would like it to be as the lines are far from perfect in my loop, and I still have some wire management I would like to address... but it was just time to have a gaming PC back up and running at home. So here is a quick phone shot I uploaded.
Sadly, I have been working on this build for months. I started it in October. It was up and running for about two months then I got some crazy notion that I needed to try my hand and compile my first custom liquid cooling loop. Delaying things yet another chunk of time I then acquired another insane notion that injecting some custom sleeving would also be a worthwhile project. I completely installed a flexible tubing loop and sold off my closed loop Corsair cooler. Then for some reason I decided to try my hand at the rigid tubing... I'm glad I did it because even though I still need some practice on the bends it still looks better than the flexible.
Sleeving was not much different. I used Kobra sleeving, then opted for paracord, and after that decided I preferred the prior style because of the colors and picked up some PET sleeve. I then re-sleeved my PSU for the third (and final I swear it) time! Ultimately, I think I honestly just did not want the project to finish... it was fun, and considering the amount I spent on the rig even prior to modding it is unlikely I will build again soon.
So without further ado, the system specs:
