So what became a joke with my friend became a reality. He thought I should build or create some kind of a water cooling tower for the graphic card and limit the amount of stuff on the case. He was really just joking around about that and I took it as a DIY challenge. lol Yup! this is just the prototype now, but planning to get the base created using a 3D Printer and design the stuff on software to butter clean the setup and maybe get rigid tubes for it eventually. I am missing one L shape bracket I need to install but that wood is a placeholder for the nice one I plan to do if I don't get around the 3D printing stuff.

So what do you guys think? Any ideas, thoughts or tips you can provide?

So this setup is strictly to cool the GPU only? Much like an external loop? Also I see a necklace hanging on the wall. You Boriqua?

Ahh, gotcha. Looks like a great idea. Be sure to keep us posted with the progress.
Will do that for sure, and would be interesting how it all turns out in the end. =)

So here is what I have gotten so far going to get the design to get the base 3D printed here soon. I am however working on the fan controls so that I can better control all the fans on the system using the Fan Control from GitHub. I apologize for the pictures being a bit darker and didn't know anything until this morning. I will eventually get a better one later on down the road.

Well, the project turns out good and fun but that is the end of it. I am scrapping the project due to other priorities but it was fun while it lasted.
