This is my first custom loop build. I was super nervous, but had a ton of fun in the process. Originally, this was going to go in a CaseLabs Mercury S3, but they are currently having some serious backlog problems and I couldn't wait any longer so I happened to stumble upon the D-Frame Mini and picked that up instead. It took me a total of 6 days to build after coming home from a 9-5. I was extremely meticulous and wanted to go with an all black build and no RGB. That meant all black fittings, custom black sleeved cables, and many runs to HomeDepot to source black screws. I liked the green fluid as it reminds me of the Ooze from TMNT. I used acrylic as opposed to PETG. I actually thought it was easier to work with as I bought both to start. Acrylic takes a little more time to heat up and work with, but the clarity is better and the edges clean up much nicer and easier. If you have any questions let me know. Enjoy!
