Description

Built for a buddy's 14 year old son. Zero communication on the build. I had to guess what would look good (my buddy said "go gray"). Changed out the Phanteks Halos for the nicer Deluxe aluminum Halos. RGB Remote in the photos was tossed. I had put led strips behind the mobo but I couldn't get the look I was going for. Never got a chance to do any bench tests. Build photos show an MSI GTX 1050. I replaced it with a Zotac 1070 when I learned the kid was a gamer.

Not normally a fan of test bench/open air chassis but this looks really good.

Wow, very cool. Open air cases look really nice when done right.

Since when did 14 year olds need a custom loop? Nice build anyways :)

Actually, that 14 year old already has his own business designing and programming games. And grandma paid for it...

Who needs a custom loop?? I do programming on my PC (no gaming) and yet it's all custom. Kinda like my muscle cars back in the 80's.

For me, building custom is a hobby I enjoy and get pleasure in.
