    If I could I would try to run sli. It just looks a bit odd without having a second GPU in skunkworks. Other than that is looks great!!
    RIP sli 2019😩😩 gone before I could get a chance to play around with it.

    I love when people tell people their temperatures for their gpu and cpu without telling us their ambient room temperatures. Those mean nothing when you have no idea how cold or hot the environment is for the computer. I do like the build but to be honest I have seen you do such better work in the past with more aesthetically pleasing choices. I am still building with, dare I say it...soft tubing. Like it is some kind of mistake or sin. I don't think hard tubing is worth the trouble to be honest. My soft tubes are straight and I use fittings to make any turns or curves to get that same linear effect. I could easily replace the tubing with hard tubes considering I designed the build on CAD before attempting it, to make sure my measurements were correct and that the layout would work as intended. I have had some hardware issues (which were no fault of my own) and have had to take my computer apart several times while dealing with RMA's and such. I think I would of had a lot more trouble doing the repairs with hard tubing, with my huge hands, than I did with just twisting the fittings and soft tubing out of the way. I love your channel Jay, I have been watching you since you started and appreciate all the help you have provided to me personally along the way regarding liquid cooling.

Fafnir 2.0 is stuck in limbo, not only because of parts but my own decisiveness. my problem and hopefully i can get your advice or some from others, should i wait for a dedicated graphics card or go with something like a Ryzen 7 5700G and deal with lower settings? (not a problem i play ps4 lol). also a mobo suggestion that can be used with that and possible future cpu upgrades

    Jay - you asked what we might do differently: I can't really comment on the water cooling aspects of the build, as I have no experience with it, but cable-wise I do have a couple of ideas. 1 of them I won't bother describing, as it's still kinda vague, and I'm not sure if I even like it, but the other is from an old modular PSU I had.
    Are you familiar with a brand called Ultra? I recall seeing that some people had issues with them, & mine eventually died, so... 🤷‍♂️ Aesthetically, though, they looked pretty cool, especially the cables. Instead of just wrapping the wires of 1 cable with braided sleeving, they used appropriately sized UV-reactive semi-transparent tubing, that fitted perfectly into custom cable fittings. I can't remember all the colours they did, but the UV green cables would go well with this version of Skunkworks. I don't know if anybody else makes cables like that anymore, but I'm sure you could achieve it yourself if you wanted to. 😀

    As you were talking about drilling through the floor the only thought i had was, how awesome would it look with those GPU cables tied together if they ran straight through the floor. I guess cut your hole just big enough for them, but with that i dont know if you could order a rubber seal that would be soft enough to fit over the cables and still able to seal up the floor to make it look clean. Just a thought.

    Pmma is actually really easy to make yourself. I once did it for my chemistry studies.
    Based on the structure I would not think the polymer chain will be cleaved by the solvents used. The only thing that might happen, but would even be happening more in pure water especially if it's very basic or acidic, is reaction with the side groups. Polymers are very sterically hindered by the bulkiness of the molecules so reaction won't happen very fast, but slowly over time the material properties might change a little due to the reaction of the methyl esters degrading into acid groups. I don't think the reaction with glycol is something to be concerned about. Glycol is a much bigger molecule than water and should have a way harder time reacting with the ester bonds than water molecules and it is pretty polar so won't dissolve the pmma very fast, especially in combination with water. It could be smart however to measure the pH of the mixture used and try to keep it close to 7, maybe eved add some (electrophilic / non-nucleophilic) buffer salts, whithout oxidative metal ions of course, in order to maintain the pH over time.
    "PMMA swells and dissolves in many organic solvents; it also has poor resistance to many other chemicals due to its easily hydrolyzed ester groups"
    From the wiki page of pmma
    Hydrolyzed meaning the reaction of the methyl esters with water forming acid group, thus the possible usefulness of buffer salts.
