    Again i must congratulate you on a masterpiece of art made here. Not to try and sound negative or nothing but i owuld have tried to hide more of you cables going to that motherboard and graphics card to give it a cleaner look. Dunno if the pictures above are the final ones...but around the motherboard the cables look messy. Considering the work you put into this and the perfectness of rest of the build here, i would reconsider how youre cabling is done. Dont get me wrong im a fan, just my OCD kicking in hehe

    It wasn't the final version you saw since Ssd's and the corsair link where to come. I'll update you all soon. Let's just say the system has been filled with water and it's the small stuff left

    I feel the same way. Its not easy man, sometimes its luck, sometimes its knowing someone, sometimes its having multiple nice builds under your belt, but the only SURE GUARANTEE to getting a sponsor, is getting views/followers, or features/rig of months type deal. I have alot of builds, but none I would consider, high quality, really nice, sponsor worthy type build, until my last one. Sadly I didnt even get put up for mod of month here, either they didnt like it, or I slipped through the cracks timing wise. I submitted right when April was turning into May.... Then I got snubbed by PC Part picker, even though my rig had more "likes" or "thumbs up" by the users than any other build this year. So I hear ya, it would be nice to get sponsored...just keep trying, one day you or I might!

    Post to subreddits r/battlestations and r/gaming and r/pcmasterrace for sweet internet points. This build is truly stunning and clearly a labour of love.
