Razer Antec Build

Being with Razer products since the early 2000s, I have always been a fan of the company and bought many peripherals from them.
What made me build this build what I met the CEO of Razer, Mr. Tan Min-Liang, and somehow his presence or aura convinced me to go all out and get a Razer case.

My rig is totally build from the ground up, swapping parts by parts instead of getting a totally new rig, so I would say this has kind of been my "skunkworks" and my main gaming rig.

TLDR, of how my "skunkworks" got to where it is today.
Starting with history, I build my first computer that sports
i5-3570K on Z77 Asrock Extreme 6 board cooled by Corsair H80i, and later on H100i
16GB 2666MHz GSkillz Ram
128GB SSD
MSI Lightning II 7970
Seasonic Bronze 650W
Asus Phoebus gaming sound card
some HDD
all packed in a Corsair 600T, then a Coolermaster stacker case

Through the years, since multiple monitors were popular, a 280X was added on, and upgraded the power supply to a corsair HX750i
Sadly, I blew up my 7970 and Phoebus card, and was panicking at that point in 2016. However, with the release of the GTX1080 a few months later, I managed to get the rig running, this time all on a thermaltake case. Also, changed the AIO to a predator AIO by EKWB during that point.

How I got my 6600k was pretty interesting. Around that time I also build a 6600k for my friend, whom keeps on suffering stability issue. Which, we don't really know why. I offered to do a rig swap, so he can use it to play his World of Warcraft (which he still does today), and I took on his current one to figure what the heck is going on. After a mobo and ram swap to the current, and a delided i5, everything work as fine as it is. Thus, I decided to push it further, but the predator AIO pump broke down. Salvaging the EKWB block, I decided to go full liquid, and after sourcing for months for parts, I finally got to where it is today.

Since then, it has been running smoothly over a year plus, without any hiccups, and it has been my daily driver on gaming.

Hope you guys enjoy my build, I tried to shorten my story so it will not be long.

I hope to retire this rig when I get engaged,
