      @Bobby B nothing to do with grammar, a barbarism of ghrammatics, another word for composition as in handwriting, font, format, spacing, the looks but with lecsis/diction as vocabulary, register, spelling, declension, placement, the meaning, nor with nationalism nor socialism.

    I was wondering, a water-cooling system for a breathing system seems good but what if you instead put some passive cooling system for CPU (and maybe GPU) it could had some temp controle on high quick pick performance and be cooled also for high endurance perf. Though it would look way more chunky and be way heavier dude to the massive radiator but it also reduces the sound of the hydrolic pump used in the PC (this is a proposition i'm open to discussion)

    Stick it in the wall put some air vents on the wall, and bam. A breathing built in home computer. And if you really wanted to you could have air from the house flow into it and be able to regulate pc temps with the house thermostat. Hahaha. Great video very interesting and extremely creative.

    Maybe im not understanding the concept behind this build but you have liquid cooled the cpu and gpu therefore the 60 degrees is normal underload... making airflow null any gains. Maybe you could of tested the mb temp or ram temp

    Im curious to see what happens if you turn on PBO. My 5950x doesnt produce much heat at all stock, but when you remove the limits and manually tune the PBO settings to get higher clocks, the heat output is nearly double.

    60 degrees c isn't great tbh. I've put waterblocks on a number of GPU's over the years, including overclocked, crossfire 290X's. All of them have been no more than about 5 or 6 degrees C above the ambient room temperature, when under load. Radiator size and area play a big part in this.

    I desperately want one of these for my own build. It's not terribly practical but wow! What a conversation piece and you can't argue with those performance metrics. Once my situation is a bit more permanent (student at the moment so nothing is static) I'll definitely be emulating this build, albeit with different materials (I've got a different aesthetic going).
