    Well this project has been a long list of revisions but i'm calling it done! Let me start by saying all credit for the case mods, cables and paint go to TPBmods.
    When i first joined pc builders canada facebook group i stumbled across a post Kevin had made for his mod "Maple." Once the GF saw it she just had to have it so we worked out a deal and i bought it.

    Well unfortunately Canada post man handled Maple and broke the pcb on the 1080ti, as well as damage to the PCIE slot...

    So now this is where the build starts getting fun, do to the unfortunate death of Maple before i even got to boot up i figured it was time to go big! So we worked out another deal and i bought some of the custom loop components, Lets do this!

    Finally! A fully functional piece of art!!

    But i just wouldn't be happy to leave it at that, i wanted it perfect! So a few more deals were made, fittings ordered, paint also ordered and when the origional cpu block became available i knew it needed to be back in maple! And what would make it really pop? I l Know!! Some gskill trident Royals

      Nice to see another high quality flex tube build.

      Big fan of the shroud!

      I'd stick around and extoll the virtues of your build, but all of a sudden I want to go eat waffles and let my kids hit me with slapshots in the driveway.
