Vampire

An AMD "Halo" Build. Enthusiast AMD builds were rare when this system was built, so I decided to make one.

This system was first built way back in 2014 and reached it's finished state in 2016. It was my first custom loop, and my first build where appearance was a priority. This was also my first taste of significant overclocking!
