    Ram clearence is an issue we all know about.
    And well it is happening hhere as well,
    It is something to expect when trying to go all small on a computer build with watercooling.
    But there are ways of fixing this ☺

    Drain and fill port system in the making.

    Keep in mind this is only a test fit
    The final loop will be done with other piping and all the fittings will be chrome.

    Nice color choice. Can't wait to see how it looks like once completed. It already looks pretty snazzy right now.
