    Crimson Death 2.0

      This rig became a pay-it-forward build last month. She served me well, but has been passed on to bring gaming joy to someone else.

       

      Yes, I named the build before the Crimson Software was released.

      With the Devil R9 390X upgrade, after some deliberation I wound up mounting the GPU radiator in the rear fan bay and shifting the CPU radiator to one of the top fan mounts.

      Went for a subdued look this time: no bling (meaning no windows). Simple Antec P100 chassis. Daedra secures it from unwanted guests.
