Aurora Borealis

A build of love 2+ years in the making. It's evolved a lot over the time, 4 different cases, 2 different GPUs, countless fan combinations. I'm very happy with how it turned out so far. Built for gaming and recently VR.

I plan to replace the AIO with a hard tube custom loop this summer to get it looking cleaner and to add a block for the GPU if I can source one. I just love the look of the hard tubes and the customization that comes along with a custom loop.

Processor has been de-lidded. Liquid metal between the cpu die and IHS. Overclocked to 5.0ghz and remains stable and cool.

PSU Cables have been modded with combed extensions. 90 degree USB 3 adapter on the motherboard to keep the front 3.0 port header cable from bending in ways that were awkward and in the way. All other cables were tucked and routed the best I could to hide them.
