Case Mod Friday: Neun Blanc

Project Name: Neun Blanc

Case Mod Friday: Neun Blanc

About this mod / project:
This will be the first PC I’ve built in almost a decade. Having built my own computers since the 80’s up until early 2000’s I switched over to using macs. I will still be using a mac as my main computer but this will be for gaming and video editing / vfx stuff that I enjoy.

I’ve been gathering components since Nov’ 14 while researching and buying a lot of different things impulsively but this will be my first real water cooling attempt . The only prior experience I had was on my last build back in 2006 using a Cool-IT Freezone TEC cooler.

I decided just go all out and see where this takes me.
