    Thanks, little closer to done, just a few annoyances left.
    A fan isn't spinning nor RGB working. Pretty sure I pulled cables off when I did my final wiring.
    Have to connect the XD5 to the Commander Pro for PWM control, it does not work if connected when no power to the CP, so was off for fill and leak testing.
    My flow meter does not light up or move lol!
    Lastly a little cable clean up, my GPU cables don't look as good as I want so will work on those too.

    But its up with Windows, and the temps are amazing!
    Ryzen 3900x hits 54deg under prime95 and my fan curve does not max until 65.
    Vega 64 hits 30deg under max load, this EK block is amazing! No coil whine either.

    Pic was taken with no flash to try and get a decent capture.

    Thanks I had to change my rad painting idea, I tried 12 painted cards and could not get the effect I wanted so I just went with white with red blood splatters or my scrawl.
    I intend to have the board lighting to be low white light, and the fans I have yet to decide on effect and colour.

    As far as the GPU tube, a small bend maybe the best idea, bring it down if I can to meet the flow meter.

    Nice color scheme, very Canadian! For the flow meter, I'm set up in a similar fashion (same case and triple rad layout), I found that Barrow digital flow meters didn't sag my tube. And my tube run is quite similar to yours (build name is 'Indigo Violence', in the build forum). My flow meter is in almost the exact same spot. You could probably help it by adding some extensions to the bottom radiator inlet. I think the flow meter needs to either be lifted higher, or you need to re-bend the GPU-to-meter tube so the bottom of that tube is closer to the bottom row of fans. Build looks good!

    OK some pics of my build. Seems I have so much going on 1000ml of coolant was not enough.
    Leak test ran short since I could not fill loop.
    I will likely do a partial drain and redo my drain, same location but change it from a 90 to side to 90 down with direct connect to fittings and forgo the little tube.

    The flow meter is a bit heavy and causes the rotary fittings from the rad to GPU to sag, not sure how to fix that, but it does not leak. it sagged once it it was filled with fluid.

    HAHA well I just had to try the hot water trick and wow, its true!

    My ADATA SX8200 Pro 1TB NVMe M.2 drive just arrived.
    My Corsair HX1000i is on route
    My Gigabyte x570 Aorus Master should arrive at my local CC this week
    My Corsair pump/res combo ordered and arriving Tuesday.

    Then the work begins!
    I have to break down my rads, sand them and put the base white coat of paint on them this weekend. Then comes the red paint touches after a good long cure time.

    Already getting antsy I have near 4k worth of parts, time to start using them!

    LOL they really do smell like popcorn. Was kinda freaky the first time I did it haha.

    Those little foam bits are kinda cool that Daz uses. you can either throw them in the recycling bin, compost or wash them down the sink Ive done all three but the sink is the coolest according to my son haha

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Side note second order from Dazzie came and all was good.
    Little tip o the hate here, the packing was really good, the box was full of those annoying little bits but all sides and bottom lined with foam! outstanding!

    Build begins during vacation break over new year, still need a few parts yet.

    Welcome, great motherboard choice! You will enjoy it. Latest gen Ryzen is quite a leap over your 2700X in terms of memory speeds. Looking forward to your build!
