Aorus Instinct

Inspired by Ultra Instinct Goku and Dragonball. Orange in build to accent Goku's pants, the white, silver, and black to accent the Ultra Instinct Form from Goku in Dragonball Super.

The parts in this build has been through several revisions and themes before coming to this one.... see Legion build on profile. Always wanted to have the GPU's both vertically mounted for display but could never find a case or mount to support this, that is until the Lian Li Dynamic-011 XL came out. Then the EK distro plate came out for the case and I really liked the look of it and how clean it makes the runs look. Have done a few additions since original completion. Placed some mirrored acrylic panels below distro plate and added a set of acrylic dragon balls. Little later swapped out cables to a new set from Ensourced Customs. Also have added more plates from displates to the décor, ordering a few more to completely fill up the space.

12-20 update: added some more displates to the setup.

Soon to come.... Swapping tubing to frosted tubes from Alphacool and using ek mystic fog. Also swapping the gigabyte blocks for new ek blocks.
