Dark Matter

I present to you... Dark Matter! Say what you will about X299, (I'm likely in agreement) but I have always lusted over the X299 Dark. I've wanted to build with this board for a long time and it's been an even better board than I could have imagined. I really wanted to do a copper pipe build after my first loop and I'm happy I did. With all the fittings and parallel runs it has a great industrial vibe. It turned out great and it's even more stunning in person. The cables came from Ensourced and are great. I love this case, love the build, but it's hard to love the cable management. I felt like I did the best I could, but that's the price you pay in small form factor builds. Either way, I hope you enjoy. Here is the link to the build log for more information and photos.
