I'll Be Watching Over You

PC build themed after Mercy from Overwatch. I got a good deal on the graphics card, which was the first thing I bought because the graphics card was dying in my old PC. I decided to go ahead and build an all new computer around it. I started researching parts and found the T-Force RAM with the wing pattern and that sealed the idea of theming the computer after Mercy. The majority of the parts were purchased from Micro Center.

I really like how the white theme came together. It makes for a very clean look.

The hoses on the water cooler were covered with the white corrugated wire looming. Some of the wiring was covered in white shrouding as well. I designed and cut vinyl graphics on the case on my Silhouette Cameo 3. I also designed and laser cut a custom GPU back plate and wired in the RGB lighting myself. It's designed to use the screw holes in the board and fan shroud and is attached via stand offs so there is an air gap to the board. I also laser cut a GPU support pillar.

Added cable extension to the graphics card and 24 pin connectors along with laser cut cable combs I designed.
