Project Diesel 7.0

The 7th iteration of my "Project Diesel" main computer.
This, my "Ship of Theseus", is a computer that in essence is the same system i built for myself in 2018, but at this point none of the original hardware remains, so, is it a different computer, or the same? You decide.
But anyway, recently it was an AMD + Nvidia build with an RTX 2070, but recent price drops and the opportunity to sell this RTX 2070, made me purchase an RX6700XT and transform this into a full AMD system.
I've also recently adopted a CLC 360mm solution since i've noticed the fins on my Assassin II are starting to degrade and tarnish the look of the system.
The next step for this build will probably be a 6th gen Ryzen CPU and a new motherboard when those become available, but for now i'm really happy with this system.
Also i should mention, the GPU doesn't sag on my system, i'm using the Barrowch brace due to the extra support it provides, since i do, in fact, carry this system around my house by its handles.
