Rainbow Warrior

First custom rig I have built. Mainly using for gaming and videos. Have overclocked CPU from the stock 3.5Ghz to a 37% increase, stable and cool at 4.8Ghz/1.275v. The RGB customization is amazing, and can be changed basically everyday if i so feet like it.

The case came with a 3 drive cage, and was removed due to the possibility of clearance issues with the GPU. I believe that i can put it back in and have no issues. But that leads me to my next "customization".

Initial tests lead me to buy the 3 extra TT Riing 140mm fans (mounted on top in an ex-ex-in configuration) in order to get better airflow and a more positive pressure. But these fans arent cheap, and neither was the case for that matter (which came with 3 140mm RGB fans), which meant that i wanted to use all the hardware i have. With some test fitting here and there, my final decision was to have two fans on top of each other, offset by about half the fan, in a "pull-pull" (?) configuration. I dont know if it actually is working how I imagine, but I have not any thermal problems.
