Purple Haze 2.0

Despite the title, this is more of a PC of theseus kind of build. I no longer have any of the original parts of my first build in 2015, but I always replaced or upgraded a few parts at the time. The name came around when I switched to RGB lighting at some point. Version 1.0 Had an i7 8700k and an EVGA GTX 1080 ti FTW3 (RIP EVGA cards.) Version 1.5 saw my 3080 upgrade, version 2.0 saw the platform overhaul to AM5. My first ever AMD system.

The RGB backlit honeycomb pattern plate used to be a custom backplate for my graphics card.

The CPU cooler is kind of overkill, it's a leftover from my OC 8700k. Although with a case this large, I'd prefer to stick to an AIO, as working inside my case is far easier than with an aircooler. It's been going strong for over 5 years, I dread the day it dies.

I spent a ton of time and work on my cable management.
