Aurora

This is my first time custom loop and all AMD build. I was going for a minimalist design with subtle RGB.

Ever since I got into PC building, I have been amazed and inspired by custom loops and dreamed of the day I could build my own.

This experience has truly been phenomenal and I savored every moment of it. From researching, planning and building, to heating and bending the tubing, to using a level to get perfect runs. It was challenging, but worth it. It’s a great feeling looking at your work and just being in awe at your creation.

AMD featured my build on their social media for their #RedRigFriday. If you're interested in taking a look it can be found on @AMD Instagram.
