Thanks, that was where the idea came about, no one has ever done dual distribution blocks with separate GPU and CPU loops. It was like a big puzzle in which every piece has to go in a certain order otherwise it wouldn't fit, it was also my first time designing distribution blocks so taking on the challenge of designing 2 with such tight tolerances was a challenge but Dennis over at Cyberden Systems who milled the blocks helped me out a lot since I had no knowledge on how to design the blocks. Ex. Oring groove, the spacing between channels, min screw spacing. But overall I'm very happy with the turnout and it's my favorite build to date.

Thank You, it was a very tedious process to get everything to fit perfectly. This case was an absolute dream to work in, there were zero modifications done to the internal frame of the case. It was like it was meant to house 2 pumps and 2 distribution blocks.

Each pump is mounted directly to its own distribution block and they fit inside the bottom chamber without any modification to the case, which gives them about a 3-5mm space in between each of them. I wanted to take a photo of how tight the tolerances were but they are not visible with all the cables and psu inside.

Thank you, the biggest challenge of the build was the 2 distribution blocks, I designed them to custom fit this case.

Supremacy Evo the original, they are currently discontinued but you might be able to find them at a microcenter or frys. That's where I got mine.

Thank You, cable management was a real challenge with the amount of cables that I used and the fact that there are 2 d5 pumps with drain lines to fit. Luckily the Define S2 has an incredible amount of space in the PSU shroud and the back of the motherboard tray.

Thank you for the compliment and glad you liked the build, its actually a 30$ panel light with a 600$ canon t6 camera and white foam core as the background and base.

Its a completely different look since you dont have to worry about color accuracy from the RGB. Nanoxia has alot of different UV products and their UV lights are very bright. The pictures of the case build werent able to be uploaded becuase there was an error with the website, If you would like to see all the photos of the process you can check my Instagram @ds.customs and click on the #venomslate in my bio for all the photos.

It really is a totally different feeling when designing something from scratch, those cable clips are from nanoxia and they recently came out with a gunmetal version and they look amazing.

The cable clips are amazing, their extremely durable and made out of solid aluminum. GPU temps never go over 50C the barrow block covers every part of the PCB. Glad that you liked the build.

The whole case was built using rivets. Nuts and bolts were used temporarily in the build stages till the case was finalized then riveted. Not a single weld.

The build was made special because of the parallel runs. I wasn't able to make that bottom tube straight due to the tolerances between the tube and the side panel.

The fans I used are decently quite but their have a 120mm special silence optimized fans. I wasn't able to use this because I decided to go with a 280mm radiator.

Yes there have been many other people who asked about this tube this was the only way it could be run because its right up against the side window. I attempted maybe 15 times to try and get that run to look straight but just wasn't possible.

Glad to be a help, a 3x120 rad will definitely fit in the top with out any issues as long as it's 30mm thick.

I would recommend getting a 3x120mm radiator, even though the case says it allows a 420mm radiator it does not take into account the height of your motherboard vrm heatsink or ram. Alphacool offers a 30mm thick 360 Radiator that would definitely fit. Also, check out modmymods.com to see if they ship to your country.

X299 has its perks and it's more optimized than tr4 and most of the tr4 motherboards are Eatx, and i preferred the look of the x299 deluxe. AS for the 980ti, i had it from my old pc and it was repurposed for this build.

A 280 should not have any clearance issues. But a 420 might block off the eps connector on the motherboard also might have a clearance issue with the back io so just take measurements before you get a 420. But I recommend a 360 and you won't have any issues.

The front mounted radiator is a 280mm radiator that's 45mm thick from alphacool which can be bought on modmymods.com. As for the top radiator, I'm using an alphacool 30mm slim radiator which is 240mm, but I will be switching it to a 360 rad for more cooling. The top can fit a 420 rad as long as its 30mm wide but I would go with a 360 for clearance reasons.I chose a single because I wanted the fluid to give the effect as lighting running through the system.
