The Legendary Black Beast of Aaargh!

Description

My main rig, pretty decked out now.  This form is a bit limited.  Full specs at: https://www.overclock.net/forum/rigbuilder.php?do=rig&action=view&id=6159400&title=The+Legendary+Black+Beast+of+Aaargh%21

 

The Legendary Black Beast of Aaargh! makes all lesser rigs "Run away!", and gnaws off the kneecaps of any better rig!

The Aquaero has since been updated to the new firmware and the 2018 version of AquaSuite.

This pic shows the interior after drive upgrades and fan upgrades a month ago prior to the T.B. Vegas exhaust fan:

And finally with the last up the upgrades, the Enermax T.B. Vegas Quad fan which my wife, Kayla described as an "gaudy, over the top, overload of colors", which of course means that I love it because she is suitably annoyed by it!  Honestly, it really does look good!

Late update: The FINAL upgrade for a while has been installed.  This is an alcohol fueled bending unit, Bender B. Rodriguez.
