Skootzilla 2023

This my close friend's updated build for 2023, this is actually the 2nd revision as the 1st motherboard we used (a Z690-F) wasn't stable and ended up killing a kit of four Trident Z5 sticks (both the motherboard and memory were RMA'ed). With the new board, we stuck with 2 sticks to avoid stability issues.

I probably won't be able to replicate this build unless the exact parts were ordered again, everything just fell into place. The LCD screen was exactly the same dimensions as the GPU block (which is why you can't see a GPU), the fans were perfect because the 3rd bottom fan wouldn't fit if it was a different model where the corner can't be taken off.

This is the 2nd build now with a totally custom 12VHPWR cable and I gotta say, I love how clean it looks. Because of this build, I've also fallen in love with upright GPUs and will find a way to to the same on my own small rig.
