    Cool, doesn't even look like a PC hardly, with lots of the motherboard being covered along with open form factor and vertical GPU - it's kinda like a dense solid black metal mass of a machine! It's good that it runs silent & performs at max (watercooling), that's an often undervalued/uncommon combination - so this build is unique in a lot of ways! Congrats! (I guess I would have chosen an i7-6700K rather than the 6600K though if spending all that money & effort, but it's still a beast of course!)

    I'm a closet guru3d reader.. always have been. From an avid water cooler like myself, I'm just poking out to say that I love your build. I love the minimal aesthetic.. looks like a ticking time bomb. I have an idea of what I want my next computer to look like.

    Thanks so much! Was definitely something that was on my mind if I was ever transporting it and got pulled over. I don't know how I'd explain that it was just a computer and not some kind of explosive haha

    The 6600K was a carryover from a previous build as I ran out of $$ haha. But an i7 was definitely part of the original plans.

    yep the start and reset buttons are directly on the board. They are the two tabs directly under the digital temperature readout on the top right of the motherboard.

    That looks just other worldly. Massive congratz!

    I've thought of something similar with fittings and possibly surrounding the case with pure acrylic just to protect it. But just wow!

    I'm not normally into open air type systems, but I found this one appealing to me in ways I was not expecting.

    Nice build you have there :)
