This is a follow-on to my earlier build log linked below. I've decided to rebuild the computer from the ground up in two stages. This is the first stage where I will redo the motherboard and CPU, swap the tubes from PETG to Glass, and make some cosmetic changes all around. I will also be fixing some mistakes from the first build with the case itself such as bad drilling and planning for the holes and other minor mistakes. Stage 2 will be a smaller update where I will swap out the GPUs from dual 980Ti cards to next generation 1180Ti cards when those release. The CPU has been delidded with liquid metal applied as well.

Those with copper/brass showing are the aftermath. Not all fittings were touched and while most were fine, some were pretty badly stripped of coating.
