Chrome PC

A spare PC that currently runs Zwift in the garage...

Very happy with how this one turned out. First time using chrome plated brass tubing but I found it a pleasure to work with. Custom sleeved cables as you'd expect by now.

I think I'm most happy with how the PSU compartment turned out. Both on the rear plumbing and cable management.

The Pump and Reservoir (yes, that's actually a tiny reservoir) are mounted a bit sketchily, it's mounted to the back of the case and I tapped a hole in the PSU which it's bolted in to.

No GPU at the moment but it'll probably take the 1080 Ti from my main build when I upgrade.
