TheWeapon

Overview:
As Halo:Infinite release date being right around the corner, this build is a homage to The Weapon. The Weapon, who we are introduced to in Halo:Infinite, was created to take Cortana and lock her down from what she is trying to accomplish. She will be the AI accompanying Master Chief in this Halo installment. Her AI codename is "CTN 0453-0".

The Build:
As per my usual, some type of distro has to be involved. I enjoyed incorporating a cylindrical pump/res combo courtesy of EK WaterBlocks into this build. It's a part that I've never really used before but was fun and challenging to integrate into the loop. 3D printing the chip master chief uses to house Cortana, that will now house The Weapon, came out better than anticipated. A huge shoutout to Gabriel Oberkirch for laser cutting out what I needed to complete the chip and it's affect on the build. Accents are monochrome with blueish color queues. I wanted to dismantle the OLED that comes with AORUS's 3XXX Xtreme cards and integrate it somehow into the build. Well, it worked along with the RGB portion that I had to extend the wiring into my custom RGB controller. All in all, i'm very proud of this build. Simple, clean, and hopefully will get me back into gaming once again. Do enjoy the pics!
