Lord Vader

This is my first ever build. When I started back in mid December everything was all air cooling... Started watching a YouTube channel, "Jayz2cents" and then I moved on to water cooling.

Been building this beast in parallel with studying for my A+ cert. It's all been a trip. Named it "Lord Vader" because the asthetic really feels like it belongs in his Castle on Mustafaar... And the Noctuas are loud...

This is not a "budget" build... I've sunk a lot of money into this and it turns out I have the knack and a passion for this. It's a pleasure to show it off.

I would also like to thank Jay and Linus for all the inspiration on my path here.

Enjoy :)

More pictures soon. I'll even get some views of the "battle station" as a whole.
