Blood and Tears

Blood and Tears

This is my first build with this case and I chose this case to do my first hard tube build. For this reason, the blood is the liquid that flows in the loop and the tears are the ones I cried during the construction. The final effect, in my opinion, is phenomenal, but the difficulty is enormous. Each piece of the case is connected to each other. You can't separate the two halves of the case unless you separate them from the bottom first. Unfortunately on the bottom there is the power supply and therefore you have to disconnect all the cables first. There are several of these issues and I hope I don't have to do maintenance on anything. It's like building a house of cards and thinking of changing one in between. Mind you, I'm not talking bad about it. The Cannon is truly a spectacular Case and similar to many supercars such as a Ferrari Testarossa. Fast, beautiful and exciting but uncomfortable, hot and noisy. The path that the Cannon must take with its subsequent (hopefully) versions is the one that goes from the Ferrari Testarossa to the Ferrari Rome. I only made one modand that was to drill two holes to mount the EKWB pump directly to the frame. Supplied there is only a bracket with four square holes to mount another type of pump. I said wrong, I made another modand it was to bend the bracket for the video card upwards to counteract the weight of my 4090.
