Description
This is my last custom build, which was completed early 2013. My goal was to build an unorthodox system, inside and out, knowing there would be no mod's (maximus unorthodoximus) and to have a semi open test bench/service station for friends and family's computers. Inside, it is AMD based, outside it's a test bench/multimedia centerpiece that does not conform to the traditional PC image. It is powerful enough to do anything I need it to do, even without overclocking. Finally, after several years of custom building professionally (avec Velocity Micro here in RVA), my personal touch was implemented through the best wiring job you could possibly pull off given the equipment used. There are longer cables, higher standoffs, etc, etc that could be used to make the wiring better, but again, the goal was to keep it simple and work with what came out the box. Hope you enjoy~
