Liquid cooled finished build

Here's the front of the Vybe after building it with liquid cooling. This time we lit it up and chose a purple color for the RGB as it offered one of the best looks, in my opinion.

Here is the same angular shot we had before with the standard build but fully liquid-cooled. The RGB, when moved from rainbow to a static color with the rear LED strip, and from Apex ICS LED strip all synchronized, the color can help the parts stand out and create a very cool finished build.

Looking straight in the side with no panel, we get an excellent unobscured look at the finished build. The purple, while it may not be everyone's cup of tea, helped highlight the build in photos. The RAM, if it matched the rest of the components illumination, I feel would be the finishing touch to make this is a genuinely cohesive build.

Here we have the Vybe build now complete and buttoned up. The black surround on the glass panel helps to hide the LED hotspots form the two LED strips, and now we have a glow throughout the build. The most welcome part would be the fact that the liquid cooling dropped the audibility of the system in a significant way.

I would say it's time to steer this one to the finish line and wrap this up.
