Project Power of EK

Since a couple of years i'm Building my own custom computers for personal use and i have always been Building in the same case if we are just talking about watercooling computers. I've used multiple of different computers cases for air cooling, but not for watercooling. So this time i will be Building in a brand new case. Inside the Inwin Classic 303C EK Watercooled case.

After my latest build it was time to go with new hardware. So this time i'm using only EKWB Parts in my build (that's why the build is named Power of EK) After days of planning i'm starting with the build.

Hope you will enjoy my Building process. Next month thé computer gets 32 gigabytes of ram memory on top of thé already 32 gigs that are installed.
