Wow, I can only imagine the measurements and time it took to build this. Incredible 👏

 

Tagging in @Sam_AMD to make sure he doesn't miss this!! 

Thx @Amber_AMD 

I got lucky many times on measurements.

I couldn't even make a liquid-cooled PC in PC Builder because I couldn't get tube dimensions right to fit LOL. So I can only imagine the battle IRL hahah.

Me too! It's awesome! 

(I'd love to see what your basement looked like 😆)

By the way, if okay with you, may I feature it in the Red Team Modders Group?

Yes, of course you can feature it if you would like.

I would give it 10 likes if I could.  

This is impressive to say the least.  You have definitely gone above the line.

You have my vote for ROTM.

I do love custom case mods.  Yes, you need a big workbench and standing on that carpet is a concern too.  This build is pretty cool.

As Albert Einstein said, "I could have done so much more with a Big Al's Computer!".

I don't think I have ever built one on anything but carpet. I do know what you mean. After 25 years as a commercial electrician, I am good at grounding out. I got lit up by 277v the other day. No way to avoid it. Difference is I have felt that voltage a dozen times and can pick my lineman's pliers back up and keep going. Most get hit and go home. Some never come back lmao. This also helps but not going to lie, it's been sitting in a box for a year.

This is so nice that I have to come back and look at it every day now.  That is mind boggling.  I've seen a lot of things in my life like a pulling tractor with 5 - 396 Cubic Inch engines synchronized timing. 

That's where I rank this, with the best of the best.

Thanks! @Vynski 

I think it may pass inspection too! lol 

 

I assume an electrician or electrical engineer by trade.

Commercial electrician. 17 years till retirement. 😀 

I do hope you enjoy your work.

I taught Vocational Agriculture for 15 years then was an administrator (Unit Principal) for 7.  By the end of the 6th year as administrator, I got to the point where I hated getting up to go to work.  It was a time factor mainly.  I resigned at the end of that 7th year and accepted a position as a shop teacher at my local school district and was a happy camper for the next 12 years.  I also farmed with my father-in-law.  At one point in the 1990's we farmed almost 2000 acres and had over 300 head of cattle.  I think not having that time to do what I enjoyed most, as an administrator is what really bothered me.  That's why I say not enjoying your work, I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
