OK so I'm in the mood for a build I haven't been on this site in a while. 2 new kids work and all that took over gaming for awhile. Things have changed however and I now find myself out of work because of a disability. I am currently on long term disability from work and am awaiting a decision on SSDI. Hopefully my lawyer pulls it out for me and everything goes well. With that being said my build process may be slower than others. No worries about it though life happens its what we make of it. I know when I built my last rig you guys helped me quite a bit on it with overclocking so ill be glad to see the same input as this one progresses.
OK on to the goodies.

I havent ordered the radiators, fittings, tubing, cable sleeving, and a few other odds and ends yet as i need to get things on the table and start planing them out first.
This build will be themed after Fairy Tails grand magic games. Purple, black, white, and silver/gray will be the color schemes.
This build will alos include a custom mounting system for my monitor, keyboard, and mouse. It will sit around my recliner as that is where I am most comfortable when gaming. I will more than likely build it from PVC and paint it black. The monitor and keyboard will be on swivels so I can move them out of the way to get up. Ideas on what to use that would be cheap and be more aesthetically pleasing are welcome. i bought a vesa mount already. It is a this one https://www.microcenter.com/product/...onitors-13--27
I plan on cutting the bottom portion off, moving the arm to the center, and sliding the PVC over it. The mount for the swivel keyboard will be along the same lines. A pole that will slide into the PVC with a tray mounted to it to house the keyboard and mouse pad. So anything that fits those parameters and looks better will be taken as suggestions.
I will not be working on this Wednesday through Saturday as that is when I have my kids. That is unless of course my son wants to get involved. He will so expect a modest amount of cheesey grins from him along the way.
As always you guys stay safe and game on.
