vulcan: roman god of the forge

Meet vulcan MK1. not much too look at now, modest, but with a vision.
(NOTE: Ram is samsung b-die, 3200 CL14)

currently air cooled with no time frame as to when upgrades will happen so currently qualifies for the aircooled competition.
number one annoyance is the stock coolers RGB ring not being addressable. super irritating but i dont want to invest in an AIO since plans are to upgrade the GPU then watercool the build using watercool.de brand Heatkiller reservoir and Aqua Computer brand radiators, to keep an industrial style metal and orange theme. The Define R6 can support up to a 360, 280, and 240 mm radiators at one time, with little wiggle room. then add custom cables, some Team Group RGB SSDs to ALL SSD slots available, and mount the second glass side panel i have for the full aesthetic.
also plan to sand and properly spray paint the pcie slot covers and top radiator bracket sunburst (or LTT) orange at some point, to fit with the build.

may not be much yet, but the vision is real and reachable with time, but more likely after my very soon wedding! :D

edit 4/23/19: wedding went perfectly. time to start saving for those upgrades. ;)
