Like many people here at Guru3D I've been into computers for many years, with that said Alexander's system is very impressive to say the least! In my opinion its one of the cleanest custom builds I've ever seen that was built by an individual and not a company or corporation! Thanks for taking the time to cover it Hilbert!

The platform (I refuse to call it a case since the components are exposed) is awesome... but a Core i5? Really?

I love how you have it set up like a tech bench case on crack lol. It looks amazing how you took what could be a simple tech bench frame like I used to work with when I worked for Prime Systems, a internal company that fixes and repairs systems at the whole sale website http://www.Directron.com which is here in Houston where I love. You took it to the next level, or, more like Like 20 levels higher then the next level. Very Unique bro. Mad Props! Almost inspires me to such a build a set up like that. it's easy access to the components and great for working with over clock tweaking etc. Not to mention the open air cooling again. Beautiful rig!
