  • Blastoise: Phanteks Evolv X

    I have built a number of computers over the last few years for friends and family. Every time was always a fun, stressful and addictive experience and Yes, all my computers are named after Pokémon. This rig evolved slowly over the last couple of years, but it was only recently that I decided to try my hand at some custom water cooling.

    Most of the components for this rig were acquired slowly over the course of a few years with all the major watercooling components coming from Dazmode. This personal rig is used primarily for photogrammetry and 3D modeling work, but it is also used for gaming. I am really pleased with my first custom watercooled rig but I can understand why it is a labour of love and extremely addicting. I am already planning to try some custom cable sleeving and I am thinking of maybe changing to hardline.

    Hey this is great!
    First thing I thought of was blastoise hydro pump when I saw your CPU block and the way the tubes are.
    I want to build a Latias themed PC, definitely not to this extent though, yours looks great!
