Edit- Fixed the post formatting for readability
Edit2- The 2nd and 3rd image are new to show the RGB led strip added to the GPU block. I also topped off the res. The led strip was sleeved in silver and I cover the back in silver vinyl.
A black and silver PC with purple accents through lighting and the case. I wanted to go all out with the modding and aesthetics. I built this because I wanted to make a lengthy project out of it. /Edit/ the name came from the anime Fate/Apocrypha, but that’s the only thing they share. I just clicked with the name, but the build isn’t themed after the show.
I do 3D modeling, sculpting, and some rendering in Blender/Maya/Zbrush, so the 8 core cpu and 1080ti work well for that. My fiancee also does gaming and regular PC stuff on it, so it works nicely for gaming as well.
Id like to give a huge shoutout and my thanks to Kevin J for the photos, and to Jeff H for doing the 3D printing for me!
