Star Cruiser

Ladies and gentelmen, I understand that you've come to see a PC that is so advanced that it can fly into outer space. However, this is not the case, as you're going to be shown the ugliest* build with low-mid specs, ENJOY
Heyy, so here it is. Not a main stream build at all, but it really gets me deep inside and personally I love it. Having been originally a gift, this build hasn't gone much (anywhere, ehem) as far as perfomance goes, but sure made a backflip regarding looks (still is a console killer with 4GB of VRAM Emoji) Sooo, originally had a red CiT F3 case, hence the MSI 960, as it was color-coordinated. After seeing Hardwarecanucs' video regarding Sysclone II case from Aerocool (the 2011 gaming case one) inmediately fell in love with it. The starship design, glossy front, freakin turbines!... just couldn't resist. Soon after, found a local website that sold pc parts and found the Cooler Master Eclipse for sale in the outlet section (sirca 2006 cpu cooler) being just 6 euro, picked it up immediately, as even if it didn't work out I'd still have the stock Intel cooler (these crappy ones are priced at 15 bucks for some reason) Being such an old cooler, it had the lga750 connector, which required just a bit of bending to get it right, and afterwards - it worked! it does fit reaaaaly tight against the GPU, but it is barely 1 mm of movement, so I'm comfortable with it as the 960 is not a particularly heavy GPU. Then, the rice began. From the same website ( XD ) found very cheap - 4euro - LED PC feet. Yes, LED not RGB, as it is a color-schemed build (and these are from 2004) . Also, ordered transparent handles of which only used the blue LEDs as ambient lighting.
Despite it not being a very modern pc, it does have USB3.0 ports (which are completely useless to me as all of my devices except the keyboard are usb 2.0) but retains the useful for me 5'25 slots on front allowing for expanded connectivity and fan controllers.
