5.0 GHz of Grey

- Sponsored Build -

This is my new daily rig that will be replacing my "PPCs Define S" build. It contains some much needed upgrades so I can keep improving my CNC work... which is what some of this build's main featured were made with. In the back, you can see PPCs very first distribution panel made for resale. Helping tidy up the runs and hold some fluid for the loop, this is the heart of the build. The build also features a custom PSU shroud cover with a built in 7" LCD screen. The custom watercooling was very kindly supplied by EKWB. Thanks to ThermalTake, this build has power as well! Thank you Shawn at Fractal Design, for sending me multiple S2's EmojiSpecial thanks has to go out to my boss and CableMod Matt for supplying all the hardware for this build - thanks for the upgrades guys!
