The successor to Vampire, my first enthusiast AMD machine, Vermilion uses all that I learned from that build and in the years since. Using the latest (as of August 2019) AMD hardware, combined with custom water cooling, this system is meant to be a showcase of what the Red Team is capable of.
I'll be using this machine primarily for gaming and entertainment purposes, but I may get into some content creation in the future. I'm thinking of making a head-to-head video of Vampire vs Vermilion, as a way to demonstrate how far AMD has come in the last few years.
This was my first time doing rigid tubing (2nd water cooled machine overall), and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out! I have a couple of minor issues to address, but once those are resolved I can start finding out what kind of overclocks I can get from it.
