Black Ice

A year ago I built a machine in the original o11d with the EK side distro, It was close to the vision I had for it but not quite. I decided to take another stab at it and went with the XL o11 (mostly for the extra rad space) and the front distro plate from EK this time. Another big change for the look was switching from EK cryofuel Navy Blue to Alphacool Crystal Blue which was a much deeper blue.

All of the fittings are EK Quantum, Both rads, distro and the cpu/gpu blocks are all EK

Corsair for the PSU, fans, LED strips and RGB controller

The Intel 905p is completely overkill but I never owned an optane drive before and wanted to try one out. At least it matches the build haha.

Using my 2080 Super from my previous build until I can get my hands on a 3080/3090
