this was done with minimal effort, being stage 1. honestly very surprised it looks as good as it does. zero f's were given to the water loop as stage 2 i am planning on rebuilding it with all custom watercooling, including custom made distro blocks. money aside its i don't know when i will go about that as im really happy how it looks, other than needing a new custom sleeved cable for the GPU. plan on going dual 1080ti's which i will do as soon as i find another cheap one. cpu is delidded and has been tested to be stable at 5.2ghz at 1.42v. which threatened to burn down my house so its sitting at 5.0 now haha. only other thing to note is the price of the system. it's a great example of if you are ready and waiting for the right deals, bargain hard and you can find some amazing savings. oh and you may have seen the weird speakers. story behind that is I'm mostly a headphone guy and have spent silly amounts of money of headphones over the years. need to buy more headphone stands so i can display them all what would make for a cooler set up picture :P. but back to the speakers, they are home theater front speakers because f spending any more money on sound. It has a very large sub underneath on very low (also acts as a great foot rest) and a receiver that is connected to my external Dac which i also use to run my headphones. other than the very big receiver its a hell of a sound set up for free. its just parts lying around that weren't being used. new these speakers were $2000 for the full 7.1 set up a few years back when bought new. but you can see examples of home theater speakers selling used for next to peanuts ($50) everywhere. they sound really really good, i thought they wouldn't work well not being designed for such close listening.
