This was my first time building a PC, and I wanted to go all out while recording the whole process! Decided to make a tutorial for beginners or anyone interested in liquid cooling. Feel free to ask questions, I'll do my best to answer.

(Don't just open the file and load it into your CNC Machine. Make sure to double check and edit the cutting settings as necessary.)
Q: How much did it cost?
A: The liquid cooling parts cost about $700, making this PC around $400-$550 more expensive than a non-Liquid cooled PC. (Remember, you still have to buy fans or a cooling system for the CPU and GPU if you don't liquid cool).
