This is a terrible use of money.

As attractive as a liquid series system is visually, you're spending hundreds of £ to water-cool mid-range hardware. An i5 in a ~£3800 build, with slow RAM, and an overpriced GPU.

(that assumes your data science needs more than 16gb RAM - gaming won't)
Also dropped the sound card as mobo sound is decent, and the wifi card as the AORUS Master which is an excellent mobo already has good onboard wifi.

Oussebon :- Thanks for the opinion, yes I know I can get more for the money if I dropped the liquid cooling part. As mentioned though the reason I was looking at liquid cooling was just for the tech side of it.

This was more of a reach out and get peoples opinions of liquid cooling devices. However if it became a why waste your money on liquid cooling post then I would happily reluctantly fight away my impulse for one :p

So far its liquid series 0 other options 1!

Added Edit: Thanks for the build looks amazing and stupidly tempting......

It depends a bit on the budget.

If you have £8000, sure, why not. But I'd have recommended buying everything else before spending money on the custom loop liquid cooling, including the 2080 ti SLIs and the 4k 144hz monitor. Probably :)
