Gotta love the way the orange stands out against the white and black!
Lucas for scale!
This is my first tempered glass case, and I must say, I understand why it's such a trend in the case world.
I tried some cable combs for the first time. I don't think I bought enough, so there are still some uneven cables, but I can see the appeal I suppose.

Finally! A complete setup!
So, I was watching the EVGA 12-hour charity livestream, and I won an X299 DARK motherboard. Time for an upgrade I guess. New parts include: Intel i7-7800X EVGA X299 DARK EVGA RTX 2070 XC Ultra Lian-Li O11 Dynamic in Acrtic White Intel 8260 Key-E WiFi card
Re-used parts include: 16GB Crucial Ballistix RAM EVGA G2 1000 Modular Power Supply Fractal Design S36 Samsung 960 Evo 500GB NVMe SSD AMD Radeon R7 240GB SATA SSD Various 120mm Noctua, Corsair, and Fractal Design Fans (9 in total) Deepcool RGB Kit - 2x 500mm LED strip Magicforce 108-key Mechanical Keyboard with Kailh Brown switches Corsair M65 RGB Mouse
I've pushed the CPU to 4.9 on all cores, which I'm very happy with. :) Just kidding. The only reason I stopped at 4.9 is because I seem to be at the limit of the S36's cooling capability. The MB/CPU are probably capable of 5.0+
So I thought I'd participate in a cool contest where users vote on each others' computer builds with the opportunity to win some pretty sweet prizes. And I won a chair in a random draw! This is the one thing that was missing from my setup. I have been using a wooden chair from the dining room up until this point.
I'm so thankful to the people at Noblechairs who made this prize available, and to all the awesome folks at CableMod for creating this cool community where we get to share our rigs and dream about what might be next in our own setups.
