Hope you all enjoy!!

This build took me 1 year and 4 months in total. The amount of frustration, pain, tears, and sweat was unreal. But all of that is now gone. I'm quite happy with how this one turned out.

This theme struck me one day when I was sitting in an office job. I went through many sketches but this one stood out the most. I wanted a "simple design" but elevated to another level. It took me about 3 months to finally settle on a design where I truly liked. Reasons, why this build was taking so long, were because I had to wait for waterblocks, distroplate. and planning out my shots to make the timelapse enjoyable.

The goal of this build is to make myself happy with something unique.

-Some may ask why did I went with the 1950x, but keep in mind that this project took me over a year to complete. I had already planned out the components from last year so that is what I am working with.

-I had also gone with this platform because of a friend of mine had made fun that I was always on DUAL channel. I agreed that Quad Channel looks way better.... not a great reason but... yeah!

I am on the road on wanting to become a pro modder/builder. I started the adventure of building PCs in 10th grade, and I developed a passion for it. Now 3 years have passed and I still have that feeling, seeing it boots with all the lightings truly amazed me. I'm currently in my first year of college, studying Mechanical Engineering at 18 years old. I want to show people a computer can be whatever you make it be in terms of looks. This project has made me pulling an all-nighter, sweats from all the modding (Cutout for the 24 pins to get that perfect 90-degree arc and front/top panels for airflow since I have my fans configure outside of the case, besides the top)

Challenges throughout the build:

-Making the GPU Cables to get that nice arc (Hardest part of the build, not gonna lie... believe it or not)

-Leaked Testing

-Measuring out where to drill holes for the case cable comb since I did not have a good tool for preparing

-Making split cables, this is the first time ever in my life that I've attempted making split cables, which is required for the 24 pin (It wasn't so bad after all, I actually enjoyed it)

Hopefully, this build could possibly get me recognized by companies out there!
