Midlife Crisis

Build Description

The exact reasoning behind this build is because of the hardline builds I see in Microcenter on display. I've always loved the look of a hardline water-cooled system and I decided it's now or never and to overcome my fear of messing up a project like this.

Favorite Feature

I love absolutely everything about this PC build even though it gave me the biggest headache I've ever experienced. My wife loves it so much she wants me to build the same system except she wants it in a turquiose color!
