Finally Caught Up

Build Description

I've been trying since March to complete my "Sign of the Times" build (https://www.microcenter.com/buildpost/7153/sign-of-the-times-microcentermadness) and I finally got through on AMDDirect for a 6800 XT. Most of the parts are from MicroCenter though, except for the aforementioned graphics and the EKWB tubing and fittings, which MC doesn't carry those types.

Favorite Feature

It was tricky to fit all this into a Corsair 280X and it did need some adaptation such as extenders for the feet and the top glass. Also there isn't mounting holes for that pump in the back, so I drilled holes. All in all, it was a great project and it's running very well.
