Stormtrooper Gaming PC

It has been nearly a decade since my last PC build. I'm really proud of how this came out.

Open to suggestions on other mods or additions, so leave a comment if you have ideas.

Completed in December 2018, this build is personalized with customized DIY vinyl GPU backplate and Star Wars LEGO BrickHeadz.

Note: A special shout-out to Bitwit, Paul's Hardware, JayzTwoCents, and the rest of the techtuber community. These guys do awesome work and made the parts review and selection process a blast. Thanks!
