Cylon

This one was a real labor of love. It took me about 3 years, multiple restarts to get things exactly right, etc., etc. This one was not for the faint of heart! Lots of time at home during the pandemic is not necessarily bad for productivity...

Custom paint, custom wires, glass tubing, painted the motherboard and lots of the hardware components.

Some difficulties along the way:
-Never going with an MSI motherboard again. Just an awful software suite.
-My zeal for the Aquacomputer Aquabus interface knew no bounds...But I took it too far by getting the Aquacomptuer D5 Next pump. It's a cool device...Unless you intend to keep it tucked away. Let's just say that rebuilding and resizing glass tubing is not fun at all when the pump keeps giving you trouble.
-Thank goodness for EK's shifted vertical GPU mount. The only way to put an inverted GPU in a vertical position, as far as I can tell (unless you fab it yourself).
