Silver & Black - RGB All The Things

This is my own personal rig. We do a lot of unique, custom builds. Nothing we do it cookie cutter.

I did my best to make this RGB Build look as nice and classy as possible. We all know most RGB builds look gaudy and not done very clean. Also, RGBs themselves have a very direct light path and can be blinding when looking directly at them. I used all diffused or hidden RGBs everywhere to create the illumination without direct blinding light. To accomplish this I have over 12 RGB cables being controlled by 3 separate boxes/units. The 3 Corsair fans are controlled by the Fan Controller while the rest are a combination of the Cooler Master RGB/AIO Cooler Control Units, RGB Splitters and 3x Headers on the Motherboard. The Lian Li Strimmers are controlled by a single add in card while the case lights are controlled by I forget how!

This build, wiring and overall PC took a very long time to wire up. There is over an additional 20+ hours just to get the custom bits right. I also added mirrored plexi on to the Lian Li RGB Strimmer cables to hide the Plastic Cable Combs.

- Still need to add: RGB M.2 SSD Cover on the top SSD. Currently has a non-RGB Heatsink
- A few more custom cut Mirror Plexi Strips to the 8+8 Pin GPU Cables
