Aethon

This is Aethon. Named after one of the horses that pulled Hades' chariot, Aethon was known for being swifter than an arrow. Aethon in Greek can denote the colour red, but can also mean burning or blazing. All things which I think describe this build well. The motherboard/processor/RAM/PSU was recycled from my old build made in 2014 (RIP Sleipnir), but everything in Aethon is otherwise new. I'm really proud of this build only being my second ever one, first for custom water cooling. I think the loop turned out really well and I'm super happy with the end result. Temps are: idling CPU 29 degrees, GPU 33 degrees and stressed CPU and GPU about 50 degrees. Water temp can get to about 40 degrees.
