    It came out beautiful. I'm only disappointed that it doesn't hover.

    Cooling: Barrow + Bykski + XSPC + custom liquid loop (below detailed setup)​


    Detailed liquid cooling setup:

    3 total radiator:

    Temperature test (with CoreTemp):
    Ambient = 19 C

    IDLE (with all fans and pump running very slow)
    CPU = ~ 22 C

    This is my little gaming station! Little space but with all i need!
    I've installed in these days 3D panels on the wall with RGB LED! I love the effects of these panels! I'm also working to do a cleaner cable management on the back.
    You can see also my Logitech G25 modded with real drift car steering wheel! And i have maked also the handbrake, but need to modify it before install, because with the ALIENBASE, i have less space on the table.
