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

    Detailed liquid cooling setup:

    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.

    One of the coolest wrap I've ever seen.
    Insane attention to light effects.
    Smart integration of recyled parts.
