    With the rig of the month, we have seen many things. This round we move towards Romania where Catalin built himself an awesome looking rig in a great environment. He uses it for his 3D design and CAE ...

    That's a sweet system, congratulations!

    The glass on the desk would cause me a bit of vertigo though.

    Congrats for that build to mosu.
    Nice to see the ambient lights: night-somehow blue-purple (not so cold),day-warm tone. :)

    Very nice build, the case fits the interios too, something that I don't always personally agree (yes taste and preferences are subjective I know).

    Well done

    The use of space in this case is fantastic!

    Great build, love the fan speed setup you have too. Seems very efficient and must be really silent too.

    Probably one of the easiest cases to build in while making things look clean, plus it supports several cooling options.

    I found it to expensive to invest in a waterblock for the GPU (will most probably switch it out within 6-12 months), some holes into Cooler Masters vertical GPU mount will probably do no harm, couldn't use Lian Li's kit since it would be in the way for the bottom intake fans and Cable Mods kit was not in stock anywhere here.
    Also got a PCI-E 4 riser cable on the way to ensure that my current card gets what it should and to have it ready for a future card.

    EDIT: Did investigate a bit more, Cable Mods vertical GPU mount goes to far down in the back colliding with the last fan.
    So there are 2 options for a vertical mounted GPU without modding while having 3 120mm fans at the bottom, Cooler Masters vertical bracket or Lian Li's without the bottom piece which then makes it less sturdy.
    Think CM's is best for such and will still be pretty sturdy with some vent holes in it.
    There should be a 3rth option from Lian Li which should work, but impossible to find it for sale.
