The Conqueror

really happy with how this one turned out, hopefully presentation is a bit better too as i've bought a new camera, light box and back drop. Big build, with a lot of custom bits and a lot of modded parts. not much was unaltered on this Case. First time using a Barrow waterway/distro block and CPU block. was very happy with both, the waterway was perfect and the CPU block performs amazingly well (although the temperature readout is completely worthless). @5.0ghz 1.35volts the 9700k only reaches temperatures of 72C after 30minutes of chinebench runs. Gpu i didn't see it go above 40C. i wasn't expecting the temperatures to be that good as its only running a 360mm + 240mm radiators, guess im too use to 9900k + 2080ti builds....
The biggest thing i believe you should take note of is the back had a LOTTTT of work done to it to make it look neat, cable management in this case is... well i never want to do another cougar build, this one ruined it for me. the carbon warp on the back to hide cables, also a custom panel was done as well for that. I dunno im super happy with how the back turned out. the custom panel looks OEM

Casemods:
Repainted case (was done by a friend, professionally done)
Removal of front logo
Removal of logos on Tempered Glass
