Skyreach 4 Mini, Extreme Modded Zotac 3060 Ti, Custom Cabling & Solder!

I picked the wrong year to upgrade my gaming pc. Apparently I picked the wrong case too because finding a GPU that would fit was almost impossible. I found the EVGA 3060 TI XC but couldn't get hold of it. Instead I went for the Zotac 3060 Ti Twin Edge.

It was still too big and so I needed to cut the heatsink down and change the fans. I decided to solder the power cabling to the GPU rather than using angled adapters etc just because I thought it would look better and not force the GPU into a funny angle. While I was there I couldn't help but plug in some RGB too!

The CPU fan is the brown / beige noctua but spray painted white (I may replace it with a noctua chromax black fan - just can't decide whether black or white would accentuate the look of the wiring). The GPU fans are noctua chromax black.

I made custom cabling throughout the build to try and get a clean build.
