The Study

This is my dream of a custom build PC and I'am glad to share the way it came true.

It is my first custom liquid cooled RGB build. Started building end of November 2018 it is almost done. I already did some successful overclocking. But there are still some RGB and other issues to solve.

I will soon provide more pictures of how it works and details that where (and some still are ;-) ) a challenge to get done.

In terms of hardware I always try to build my PC for long time usage. So what you see here, is the successor of my Intel 2600k - GTX 580 build from 2011 that got an upgrade with a GTX 980 in 2016.

So I hope you enjoy...and always stay save.

Edit: I would be grateful, if you check my Updates. Maybe you can help me out with some issues.
