Build Updates

Upgraded Original HotRod to HotRod-Prime. New Mobo with 12 core AMD 5900x and XFX Merc 319 6900XT and Lian Li RGB fans for a cleaner cable managed build

Added new pictures after my CableMod cables came in and I cleaned up the cable management some

Replaced and upgraded to a 4k Monitor and RTX 3090

Replaced air cooled XFX RX 6900 XT with a quieter ASUS ROG Strix LC RX 6900 XT

Swapped in ASUS ROG Ryujin II 360 AIO and added a vertical GPU mount for style

Switched out to a new AIO CLC
