So @chinese_spy, you were right, it didn't fit, time for that custom loop.
perhaps you've forgotten, we've already discussed your options.

don't give up, amigo!
I'd just like to compliment the brilliant idea of cable routing outside the case but inside the plastic shell. I might even move some 2.5" drives out there as Psycho_rocker did.
Alphacool has released an AIO Cpu block that could work well with the radiator that you already have. The good thing is that it allows both its own tubes as well as custom loops. You could either make it look like the brilliant loop from chinese_spy or go with flexible tubing or whatever . The blue LED logo is RGB and can be changed too .
I know this beautiful machine was built a few years ago but I wonder if you have been able to keep it up to date with macOS Sierra?
@Asomatous I'm still alive, and so is my Power Hack G4. I've just migrated back to Australia after spending the last decade in the UK so I've been rather busy getting the family settled.
I've just powered the system back on tonight after being turned off for the final time in the UK early March and spending 3 months at sea. I currently have it setup as a dual boot with Sierra 10.12.2 (which I'll be looking to update to 10.12.5 this week) and El Capitan 10.11.6. I'm typing this post on the system now and is all in good working order.
First thing I checked when powering on was tonymacx86
I doubt I'll ever update the hardware on this one, maybe, you never know.
I do however have another donor quicksilver that just itching to be stripped down and hacked. Realistically it's going to be another year before I get the time and funds to start.
