I decided to ditch my old Parvum S2.5 case and get into one of them sexy Fractal Meshify C Mini cases -- glad I did. I also decided to do the delid process on my 8700K because I was not impressed with the temperates I was seeing while on the AIO coolers. That process alone has proven to be well worth it -- prior to this work I was getting 85c max temp on Realbench at 100% CPU load. After I moved everything and ran the test my max temperature during stress at stock clock is 50C -- a 35c drop. Impressive!
 
Here are some photos -- very happy with how it turned out. You all might remember me; I was the guy with the insanely custom built WoW Alliance case by Parvum (that took me 9 months to get.)
 
I am considering going back to custom loop later since I don't really like how tubes are ran for the two AIO coolers (unless I move the GPU rad to the top of the case.)

    Very nice but I was wondering if there was any way to make the tube routing better.

    Nice build. 
    No other choice, AIO of full custom loop are only choices for high end PC and fun with OC.

    I'm open to ideas -- because I too don't know how I feel about it.
     
    I like keeping my GTX 1080ti on water but then sometimes I wonder if I should just go back to AIR on that one.
     
    Custom loop is only solution that would allow me to have better flow.
