    Excessive Insanity 4 computers in a Case Labs TX10-D Sponsored by EK Water Blocks

    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
