Looks great and amazing temps! 

Detail in the cables and tubing placement, lights and custom window/panel very nice. 

Good work.

Thanks @HanoverB 

You know from my other threads that I like to be a lot more descriptive, but the platform functionality is just not conducive to that right now.

Re: XPS 8930 Liquid Cooling II

Great pics.  

BTW, how easy was it to do the i9-9900K CPU upgrade?

Seamless?    Install the BIOS meant for the upgrade and install the new CPU?  Plug and play?

No upgrade for me. I ordered from Dell with the i9-9900K processor. They had just become available almost a year ago today.

That's right! 

I forgot that you had that chip when you started this crazy ride with the fan upgrades.   Look where you are now......
