Another beautiful computer, nice job choosing this rig Hilbert! I also agree with BHEH! that its nice to see a rig sporting an AMD processor! With that said I think Kellen did an excellent job with his component choices, especially with the watercooling gear! Its easy to just go out and buy all the newest and highest performance components and then throw them all together in a fancy case but its clear that the builder carefully picked out his components which is impressive to me! Last but not least the build is very clean, tidy, and well built (nice work Kellen)!

Very nice!
Really neat/clean look and pretty too.
I like the way all the reds are very close in colour and that it is all dark except for the blinding bright clear water areas providing all the lighting.
Great contrast.

Nice to see an AMD rig get put on the pedestal for now. Hope the builder's arm gets better soon.
