Rainbow Unicorn

Build Description

This gaming computer was built from a plethora of used and repurposed parts. I found an old computer someone was giving away on craigslist and spruced it up with some LED lights and a more powerful CPU. It doesn't run everything on high settings, but it certainly gets the job done for a little Minecraft or Fortnite.

Favorite Feature

I really liked the LED lights in the fans. I think LED's just add such a neat level of customization to a build.
