This is my first custom build and I have an obsession with all things giant squid, and octopus so i wanted a build that would reflect that in a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Jules Vern kind of way without getting too campy with a bunch of gears glued on it all over the place. I purposely wanted it to have a slightly raw unfinished exposed machinery feel, so opted to stay away from an io shroud and braided cables. I wanted it to look clean, but not too neat if that makes sense. Although I will remove the sticker on the io ports as the build gets closer to being finished.
The water loop is all real brass tubing, and was pretty hard to work with seeing as this case is only 4.72 inched deep. The video card is actually on a water block hidden behind a radiator, that also has a custom fan housing on the bottom left.
This case is beautiful, but some of the screws are really hard to work with, and the tempered glass panel is a nightmare to take on and off, especially if you use the stand in came with.
I am still a couple of weeks away from completing the build, and have a couple of cool ideas I really hope I can pull off.
This is an update with a couple of the old pictures, and a few new ones.
