Not a big fan of the case..... but not against it at all ! Very well built ..... sweet components..... and just masterful build quality ! This is one of the highest scores I have given and I generally don't even comment ! But this is worthwhile and wanted to give kudos on a great build ! Not only your design and build a beautiful custom PC .... you also used high performance components !!! Love the craftsmanship and detail ! Clean and I bet runs awesome ! Performance wise mine is probably pretty close except for cooling, but not near the quality of build !
Great Job !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How much space do you have between the top rad and the memory? Doesn't look like you could fit memory with tall heatspreaders under there.

Very nice, I would have used U.V. reactive fans on the top to give a subtle white glow if possible, apart from that it's close to perfect.
