Personal Computer

I have been building my own computers all my life, and designing them for performance (even if I don't use that performance) is one of my hobbies. No longer constrained by budget, I wanted to build a machine without compromises that allowed me to express my handiwork, and allow for upgrades over time. I've designed an incredibly powerful machine, with a fully custom triple-radiator hard-line water cooling loop, enabling completely silent operation, even when at maximum load. I've added a number of custom mods as well, including a display for my SSDs, sleeved cabling, hidden Bluray burner drive, and software-controlled LED lighting. Specs below:
