Phoenix

This is my first custom liquid cooling build.

The name Phoenix came from having to replace or modify nearly every part of the original system due to an unexpected motherboard failure and getting a custom water cooling kit which did not fit in my case (without modifying) for reviewing...
So it has been risen (or maybe Ryzen... pun intended) from the ashes...

Its main components are a Ryzen 7 3700X, a Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro, 32GB of Crucial Ballistix RGB and a NVIDIA RTX 3070 Founders Edition.
The water cooling kit I'm using is a Alphacool Eissturm Blizzard Copper 45 3×120mm.
Everything build into a Fractal Design Define 7 (with minimal modifications in the Top bracket, for a fillport and radiator mounting).

(And I know I should improve cable management outside of my PC ^^)
