    This round we take a turn to the UK where Luke, with the most original nickname ever, has built something quite unique, it might not have a name, but trust me what I say, when you look at it you'll a...

    It looks very nice. Futuristic but somehow Mad Max rig. :D

    It reminds of a movie too: crash

    Nice!
    And, I love the use of alphacool things, before reading what was used, I thought it was alphacool tubes also. (They look like the ones I have on my "lazy system with alphacool aurora 240.)
    Really like it, 5 thumbs up!

    The experience at my office is exactly the opposite. Since they have been available we have bought only workstations with Threadrippers in them and we have had zero problems with them. I missed out because I got mine right before they came out. I had to settle for two Titan RTXs instead.

    Ignore him - Intel could have his whole family murdered and he'd still favor them over AMD.

    This rig has a very utilitarian appearance. And I like it a lot! :)

    Nice build! Looks cool, and probably runs cool as well ;) Does that CPU pump/block also cool the PSU? BTW where did you buy that PSU extension cable?

    Congrats from Andy:p

    Thanks Andy! Yeah the GPU used to run in the 80s before watercooling it when under load, now it's 38C under heavy gaming, CPU is around 56.

    The CPU block is just a slim block, the reservoir is a combo Res/pump with a DDC, model is the Corsair XD3.

    Cables are stock but I used a 180 degree power adapter I bought off Amazon for the GPU, cheap as chips too.

    @Siegehammer Great build!

    I once build custom case for LTC miner, mostly with L profiles, but it looked like a makeshift storage rack. :)
    Your rig looks absolutely astounding! And the water cooling parts choice and placement appears to be pretty well thought out too.

    The stands don't spoil it. Imo they fit it well. And did you consider having the vertical supports extend beyond the bottom line to act as stands too?

    Thanks! I kind of did it all trial and error with regards to fitting, what surprised me was how little tubing I needed compared to all previous builds (I bought 3 meters of tube!). I didn't go with the frame as a stand because I used corner fittings to improve rigidity and ensure everything was perfectly 90 degrees in the outermost corners. You cant see them because they are under the L brackets. One of the advantages of the feet is they are adjustable for uneven surfaces not that it would ever matter, still think they are fugly but a few people seem to like them.
