Build Description

The theme represents my favorite movie. I wanted to build a machine that would play games on high graphics, serve as my first programming machine, and display as a piece of artwork. Believe it or not, this was my first self built pc. I play Heroes of the Storm, Starcraft II, Warcraft III, and Team Fortress 2. Some old favorites are Runescape, Maplestory, Neopets, Delta Force Black Hawk Down, and Dune 2000. I just began learning the Python coding language. I would like to be involved with the coding community to create tools that will improve the world. I wish there were more affordable RGB GPUs on the market. The few problems I had were identifying what screws went to what on the Thermaltake Core P3, figuring out where to plug the pump into the motherboard, and having to get a Molex SATA adapter for the pump power. I do not take any credit for the Aida64 Sensor Panel idea from which I followed a guide on YouTube. I did custom pixel the corn and mask on the sensor.

Favorite Feature

I love the RGB lighting effects and how the water cooling system keeps the CPU to low temperatures. The Aida64 Sensor allows me to see the CPU and GPU temperatures while in game. The open concept is unique and I will ensure to keep it dust free with an air duster.
