        Very tight build!
        Those bends are very smooth and look great.

        How are your temps with those solar array of fans?

          Right now i didn't OC and benchmark that much. Pretty the same thing I had before. So, at this moment on cinebench i peaked at 69 deg on the cpu @5ghz. And i didn't reach more than 37 deg on the gpu with a small amount of OC (+75mhz) as a start on time spy 4k. Liquid runs at about 25 to 33 deg. Like i said, it's only values as a starting point for the OC. More to comes...

            Great work, nice to see how torque fitting looks with optional rings in real life. Thank you for sharing the extra images!
