The Baron Build

This build was commissioned by THE one and only Hank Baron himself! Hank requested that I build him a new HTPC for his home. Little did I know he would pick the biggest GPU on the market, with complete watercooling, all to go into the Phanteks mITX Evolv. After completing the build in my modshop, I shipped it down to PPCs but it was damaged during its way down. It has since been entirely fixed and running again!
