Animal

This build is dedicated to my favorite Muppet, Animal! Build was started late 2017 and seen several upgrades with more planned. To begin the build has the Muppet himself etched onto the tempered glass panel of the Thermaltake View 31 TG case. A custom laser cut aluminium power supply shroud has been painted using an EVH franken-strat style in pink, orange, and red. It houses a Seasonic Focus+ Gold 850w PSU, stock cables replaced by pink, orange and red cables with aluminum combs from CableMod and further kept clean with 24+8 acrylic combs from Clockwerk Industries. Cooling is provided by an NZXT Kraken X62 and 3x Corsair LL120. Case lighting is provided by Phanteks RGB strips and Corsairs addressable RGB strips.
Covering the Asus Strix Z270-e motherboard is custom laser cut acrylic shroud painted using the same EVH pattern. The CPU is an Intel Core i7-7700k which has liquid metal applied using the Rockit 88 Delid Tool overclocked to 5Ghz. For memory the build is running 4x8GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3000. In the M.2 slot are a Samsung 960 EVO 250GB SSD and WD Black SN750 500GB SSD. The build uses the vertical GPU bracket the case comes with and the Thermaltake 200mm PCI-E riser cable for the NVIDIA GeForceRTX 2080 Founders Edition graphic card.
On the back of the tower are two Seagate Barracuda 2 TB hard drives running in RAID 0 and some laser cut acrylic for cable management.
The OS is Windows 10 Home. Peripherals are Corsair K70 keyboard and G602 wireless mouse. Display is an Asus ROG XG35VQ, and 4K Samsung TV. Audio is provided from a polk FR-1 sound bar.

Planned upgrades are 2x1tb 2.5" SATA SSD with custom back plates featuring Dr.Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. Custom backplates for the hard drives featuring animals drumset Teeth and his iconic chains, and custom hard line water-cooling loop.
