Case Mod Friday: Lutfi’s AMS

Project Name: Lutfi’s AMS

Tell us a little about your case / case mod?
Primarily my workstation rig that I had the pleasure of building from the ground up but thought of going the extra mile by venturing into full-on custom watercooling. Getting the most out of an already aging machine where the temps were what was holding me back on overclocks. The hidden intention for this build was to go watercooling without the over-the-top blingy approach – instead a subtle machine sitting quietly next to my workstation.
