Needs more case fans, I think. I am concerned about the airflow...
That noctua fan isn't even plugged in to anything. ?

This concern started to worry me and I was afraid I might not be as wasteful as possible. I have now taken this in to consideration. Not only have I improved the airflow by adding 980cfm of fans drawing over 11amps of power, but I also needed to power them with an external power supply due to the extra load. And to add a little extra cherry on top, I've made all the fans point into the case for optimal cooling.

What is this, something like 500 L in total ?

oooh, those hardline tubes are just a disaster waiting to happen. Bump one of the "wings", *snap*, and you've got liquid spraying out onto your PC. Maybe that's why it's so spread out, to minimize the amount of components damaged by the inevitable leaks?

Found this on my local Craigslist, so ugly I had to post it.

So funny thing.... those Thermaltake TR2 PSUs of I think that vintage (looks like an LGA775 rig?), had a reputation for exploding above 60% labeled load BITD....

To think it could be replaced with an ASRock DeskMini A300 with a Ryzen APU. What a waste.
