Looks awesome Helpful hint - when using imgur to host images, you need to use the direct link option (with .jpg or whatever file type you're using at the end) rather than the Image Link. I've fixed it for you this time

My build theme was inspired by legendary PORSCHE 917. The only Gulf Porsche 917 to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans was the one driven in Steve McQueen's "Le Mans" movie. If you're a motorsports enthusiast, I highly recommend seeing this movie for vintage racing footage alone. The story line stinks, but it's really about the event and cars. There is an HD version on YouTube. Many innovations in cinematography were created while filming this movie. Steve's production company welded brackets to the front frame work of the 917, so they could mount a camera to shoot him, and the other drivers.
The OC-FORCE motherboard has north and south bridge water block by EK. The EVGA 960Ti cards have Koolance water blocks with back plates. The black acetal block tops and back plates were painted the Gulf Racing blue. The Bitspower dress-up pump cover was painted orange. The four Corsair Vengeance DDR (32GB) heat spreaders were painted to match later the theme later. A lot of people asked how I painted them, so I created a video guide for dismantling and painting your own DDR heat spreaders here,
Staying with the race car theme, I chose 1/2" O.D. Stainless Steel tubing was inspired by the fuel and brake lines of a race car. I used 316 Marine Grade Stainless, so corrosion isn't an issue. Working with Stainless Steel tubing requires a Mandrel bender and lots of practice. It takes a great deal of practice to get the perfect bends. I always keep my water loops simple for easy maintenance. I only use distilled water and change it every 6 ? 8 months. I may use Mayhems Dyes when using clear PETG tubing to accent a color theme in other builds. I?ve been DIY liquid cooling for past decade and find most cooling additives or radiator cleaners are gimmicks and a waste of your money. Just use distilled water and be diligent about cleaning your loop. The water pump is an Alphacool VPP655 with adjustable speed. It has a Bitspower dress-up kit. The pump cover was painted to match the exterior paint. Did you notice that my loop has no reservoir? I like my builds simple and clean. I have a Koolance bleed valve on top of the SLI bridge for filling the loop. I fill the loop through a Koolance 3-way splitter fitting with fill port on the top of the 360mm radiator. Beneath the PC is a Koolance Drain Valve. All I have to do is connect tubing to the drain valve and drain the loop into a bucket next to my workbench. The front grill is 1/8? thick cast acrylic that was laser cut into honeycomb. The top of the case has a smoked acrylic "moonroof" window. The clear side panel has embedded magnets. Both of these window panels are made by Mnpctech. It allows you to look into the PC from above. It has a machined aluminum 120mm ring / fan grill that emulates a fuel fill port on a race car. The ring has blue anodized washer with socket head screws. The rear fan grill is machined aluminum 120mm "Overkill" Ring. All of the fans are Scythe Gentle Typhoons AP-15. Part# D1225C12B5AP-15, 1,850 rpm, 28 dBA @ 57.68062 CFM. Unfortunately these cooling fans are no longer made by NIDEC SERVO, but there is still some available from online retailers. Dazmode sells similar version called the ?DarkSide Gentle Typhoon Performance Radiator Fan? They have good static pressure and under volt nicely. You can easily dismantle them for custom paint.
My project i just finished called VUE 71
Started as a thermaltake view 71 case! Also don't mind the walls been slowly doing drywall and gonna be patching and painting them soon.
metro exodus pc build with cheapskate
My very first scratch PC case built in 2 weeks from almost nothing but aluminium profiles and M5 screws.
Yes, that's shoelaces holding GPU horizontally
I am sorry, but I don't have any build log or something like that, so... there's a link to my Imgur gallery:
This was going to be my shoestring budget pc, went a little overboard, little backstory my FX machine's video card popped (a XFX Double D 7950) and they had a warranty, in return I got a RX570 4gb model, which at the time was still more expensive than it was worth, so I started garage selling stuff on ebay and ended up with a budget machine, though I went overkill on the CPU cause I cought it on black Friday
3200Mhz Corsair Vengeance LPX ram 2*8GB
MSI B450 Gaming + Motherboard (uATX)
AMD Ryzen 2700X (total overkill but I do a lot of cad and software compiling)
XFX RX 570 OC factory overclocked, runs hotter than a ...
HP EX920 NVME SSD (512 gig backed up by a 1tb segate 3.5 inch drive)
EVGA supernova G3 650 watt gold psu
3x deepcool RF120 fans
Coolermaster liquidmaster 120 lite rgb AIO
Coolermaster q300l Case
Generic DVD Drive
Computer is tubbed out in plexi and modded to house a slimline "laptop style" dvd rw drive cause I still have a pile of software on that format, hidden cables IS a major focus for me on most my builds.
Thanks for looking from a part time hobby builder

I can't believe it's taken me 10 years to post back on this thread. My how time fly's. Here is what I've been working on since.

....and the Setup V2.0
At the base of all this is a Driving/Flight Simulator that happens to morph into an All-In-One Work Station. All that without getting out of my seat. I know I'm a lazy old fart but that's what made this build so much fun for me. I guess a short Setup spec list is in order.

In the above image the setup is in the Stand profile. Yes the setup is a "Sit/Stand" workstation too. I mounted the three 43" monitors on a UpLift motorized stand with a 355lbs weight capacity....very cool huh! Now I wish it can make me a Cheeseburger I'd be set. The stand also houses the PC* behind the monitors and as an added plus the whole thing are on UpLift's very heavy duty wheel casters*. Very convenient, monitor/PC can go up or down and all around all with one hand.
*The PC and casters not shown on these pics they were added so after.
In the end I built it to make me happy doing the things I love. Thanks for viewing and I hope your dreams (with hard work) will come true like mine did.
@scooby - I see why you went missing now. Sweeeeet rig. I thought those arm rests were stirrups in the first pic, though... I guess they could be used for that too.
@Cheapskate, Hey my friend good to hear from you. Funny I get that a lot "stirrups". Your the first to mention they are armrest, but yeah my girlfriends thinks it fun too. Good to know your still rocking & a rolling.
I hope you like it
Moving pictures sorry !
