Tiamat

After building a new rig for my FIL, I decided it was time to upgrade my daily workhorse as well. After many years of piecemeal upgrades, it was time to build from a new foundation and give myself some room to upgrade as it comes time.

For this build, I kept my existing GPUs and monitors. Both are recent replacements and since the panels are 1080P x 60hz, there's no reason to upgrade them at this point. Helped keep the initial costs down and gives me room to improve when the time comes.

This rig was designed to be desktop art. It's the first machine I've had on the desktop, and as such, it's an extension of my creativity and environment.

Cabling is from Asiahorse. The dragon graphic on the front panel is made from frosted opaque vinyl and cut on my 30" vinyl cutter.
