crystal dragon

crystal dragon

I built this rig to replace my old SLI rig that was damaged in a flood.
This is my 3rd pc I have built
I use the rig for gaming and some 3d cad work

I did a custom back plate to hide the opening in the back
I try to keep the dust out of it, I try to keep it clean it but it just eats dust

Things that I know I can improve on
cables for the graphics power
I know that the blue fans don’t go too well but they will be changed out for green when I can get some more in green
