Meet GARGANTUA : too late for the contest?!

I've waiting til the last day to see how many votes it's possible to get in 24h ! It might be fun haha :P

After weeks of planning, over 50 hours of building and time for video editing, I'm proud to present you my second crazy build.

The easiest way to see my work is to watch all the building in a 10min timelapse here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kqj1zu37bwM

Since my first one made quite a hit on Youtube, I wanted to try something even harder : brass tubing, parallel loop, all-around see through case with crazy cable management, vertical GPU, etc.

I haven't opt for dual GPUs this time because nowadays it's not worth it. Most of the games I play are not SLI compatible. I prefer to have just one card for now and it's also easier to upgrade.

The theme of the build is from the case brand, Singularity Computers. A singularity is the centre of a black hole. I called it Gargantua from the black hole in Interstellar. The name is sick and the movie is one of my favorite ever. This is why the music is from Interstellar also. I like the fact that it's a HUGE black hole and one of the most powerful thing in the universe. I find it fits well my PC!

In the video, you can see the RGB mode of the fans is also thematic. It spins clockwise around the case, like something gravitating around a black hole :P

For the final touch, I even signed my build on the Interstellar ssd covers :P

I also listened to the comments in the first video about bad lighting. So, to have a more professional look, I improved the lighting and also the editing.

Building exotic computers is a really expensive and time consuming hobby because you can't resell them at the same price you payed, since technology depreciates quickly. I don't know when I'll be able to build another one, but probably one day :P
