Project AORUS-KS

This is a build that as commissioned by Gigabyte and Intel for the release of the i9 9900KS. All machining and design work was done by me, the build features 3 distro plates and an internal chassis constructed from 5mm aluminium. The cables were made from scratch and again sleeved by me during the assembly stage.

Since the motherboard tray is rotated, the IO comes out of the bottom. To help here, I made a separate compartment underneath the motherboard which is free from all cables, this makes it exceptionally easy to plug devices into the motherboard and GPU, cables run out of the back to keep things clean. The side plate that covers the IO area is held on by magnets, so you can simply pop it off without having to deal with screws and fasteners.
