First Build

First build, currently using stock air cooler (which looks fantastic), but I have plans to:
- Mount the GPU vertically
- Add sleeved cables (probably a white/black/silver pattern, plan to sleeve my own cause why not)
- Will install an AIO or possibly a basic custom loop (I want to do custom, but this case presents some space challenges, particularly with this GPU, and that may end up being a little more than I'm ready for)

Will probably switch to water at some point, but honestly the wraith prism is basically a centerpiece of this build with its lighting effects, it looks so nice. Open to ideas for improvements/upgrades.

(Also I am aware the AMD cooler is not rotated properly, I did that for cable routing originally, and now I'm not going to change it yet as I'm probably going to be doing more significant installs soon and would rather just wait till then)
