Silent BOS 801

Started this project in January 2020 so I'm posting updates retroactively. Do check back over the next couple of days as I catch up to March.

This all started out with my tinkering with an Aurora R8 which I bought mid-2019. First, the fans were too loud, then I wanted an unlocked CPU, and the next thing I know, I was cutting the R8 with a Dremel and attempting custom cable sleeving. Then over the year-end holiday, I had a bunch of rewards points to spend and I pulled the trigger on a be Quiet! Silent Base 801. I ordered a silver windowed version but BQ-USA told me they were out of stock so I settled for orange. Hence I named the build BOS for Black-Orange-Silver.

Initially meant for a case swap to bring all my components from the R8 over to this new case but then I spent remaining rewards points on a great motherboard deal. So I told myself, ok, I'll just get a nice NZXT AIO liquid cooler and call it a day. But no... EKWB just had to launch their flat reservoir. I get tempted easily by distro plates so with this looking like a vagrant-case's distro plate (hey, this is no O11D), I bought my first EK part. And like they said, the rest is history.
