Oscar-Mike V3

My original build was named Oscar-Mike - Military term for "On the Move", or getting into action. This is exactly what AMD was doing in 2017 when they launched the Zen line-up. Oscar-Mike (v1) was based on AMD Ryzen 7 1800X and Asus Crosshair VI, paired with 2 RX480's, later upgraded to 2 Radeon RX Vega64 - all liquid cooled of course with EKWB parts. Oscar-Mike v2 was a simple upgrade to AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Asus Crosshair VII. Pretty much the same build cooling wise.

This build, Oscar-Mike v3 is a much bigger upgrade to the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X on an Asus Zenith Alpha; all other parts the same (listed below) with some minor retubing for length etc. Soon the 2 x RX Vega64's will be replaced by 2 x Radeon VII's once I have my blocks in hand from EKWB. I have 2 x 360 Rads - mounted top and bottom with 6 Orange Cougars and 3 EKWB Vardar's; 4 x 140mm Cougars case fans (1 back, 3 up front). I'm listing these here since you can't add a quantity field and I don't feel like adding them individually in the hardware list.

I never thought I'd use any Orange in my builds - but here we are. Orange was chosen to match the Ryzen theme colors (Orange, Gray, Black), so that's the main liquid color and accents on the fans and custom cable sleeving.
