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.

 

The "before" pic from version 1.0, with original air-cooled MSI R9 290:

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