      c) place components in case and test the cooling circuit

      d) add old drives and GPU

      e) add UV lighting for coolant

      Step 2: RX Vega + GPU-watercooling + new PSU + small modding

      b) assemble waterblock and RX Vega card, assemble water cooling components (fan + radiator)

      c) install RX Vega and include extra radiator and RX Vega in the water cooling circuit

      d) stealth drive mod for Corsair Obsidian 750D

      Step 3: M.2 SSD + modding and cable sleeving
