I am going to finally build my dream computer. I have built a lot of computers and servers both air and water cooled but never really built exactly what I want. This time I am going to build Exactly what I want. Eddy with EKWB has been kind enough to sponsor some Radiators for this build.. This Build will have 2 Computers and 2 Servers in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every thing will be water cooled and the Main PC will have a 6 to 12 stage TEC water chiller controlled by a AQ5…

Keep Going for the Start of the Pictures

This is monster build, takes some stones just to attempt a build like this. I hope you have a trustworthy friend or 2 to help with this, I would like to see it completed while I'm still alive.
Hats off to you.

Now this is what I call customer service. Case Labs has a customer for life this is for sure.. What other case company is going to send you pictures of your case being made???????

Jim the owner was patient with me through 6 months of questions and changes and helped me all the way. Never acted like I was bothering him or just playing a game. He treated me like I was his first and last customer!!
