Build Description

Built as a gaming/video production rig, all air cooled, all AMD, in an old ITX case. Rendered village content for DEFCON 29 during the day, stream games in the video chat at night. Not the easiest case to build in, so probably the last upgrade for it. Ryzen 5950X CPU, 6900XT, full atx power supply, and a few millimeters of clearance between so many different parts

Favorite Feature

Just fitting it all in the case. The CPU cooler can't go in if the GPU is installed, and one case panel is now spring-loaded as it holds the Noctua cooler's fan on.
