FractalCuda

For this build I chose the theme to be centered around a Seagate Firecuda m.2 box. Since Seagate gifted me the 3 TB worth of storage I figured I would create a build around that. I went with a Fractal design Define 7 because of its clean minimalistic approach towards their case. Yes I am aware the tubing is not perfectly straight and that's because the distro plate from EKWB doesn't allow me to line it up perfectly but it honestly doesn't bother me. This thing looks so sexy once its on and it is super silent giving me chilly temps of around 25-27* Celsius while idling.

I opted to forgo RGB fans and RAM. I wanted a subtle touch of RGB just to give this beast some life, no unicorns here rather a build that looks like it was forged in the fires of hell, after all there is a fire breathing dragon on the box of the Firecuda so the lighting fits the theme perfectly.

This is my first watercooled pc and it wont be last.
