This rig is for gaming, streaming and photo rendering. When I start streaming I am hoping this will help my goal to take a percentage of the subscriptions and donations and donate towards military charities and or fire/ems/police charities.
First build log on this site but used to build custom cases back in the day before I joined the Marine Corps where I worked on F/A-18D jets as an Aviation ordnance tech.
Based after one of my sister squadrons jet paint schemes it will have a custom painted grey scheme digital camo paint job, with various custom painted warnings and markers. The interior will have a custom cut raised floor just above the SSD drives and have a piece of edge lit acrylic recessed as well as a piece on the cable management bar where color will change based on cpu temp. The plan was to sleeve the tubing to look like hydraulic lines and use red coolant as the red hydraulic fluid. I ran into issues getting it to fit right in the fittings but using some heat shrink the sample looked promising.

Gradually bought fittings and parts
Tube sleeving attempts, ran into problems as the fittings are just too tight to slide over the tube and sleeving and did not want to drill fittings out to make it work. The top is actual stainless steel braided line and the bottom is silver sleeving which is the closest I've found to use as the stainless is too hard to work with.
