Description

We wanted to do a McLaren themed PC. Now what we planned and what we ended up with were a bit different.

Originally this was all supposed to be hard tubing, but when it came to the weekend before the build (I stream my builds live) I realized I had forgotten to order radiators and coolant and then the plan started to change dynamically.

However I am VERY happy with how this PC came out and what it raised for charity as part of a raffle was great.

The Cougar Conquer Case was definitely the right case for this build, the vinyl wrapping and customization of the case I believe came out beautifully. Though I had planned to do hard tubing, and had to change to soft tubing, I love the way it turned out. The Coolant and all black was supposed to look like oil running though and engine and I think the larger soft tubing sold that.

All in all I am happy with the build.

For clarity on graphics card and CPU the build was sponsored by AMD and they were unable to get me an R9-3900x at the time of the build.

I also provided some shots of the PC before I put in parts.

You can also watch the water cooling of the build here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgVJhOkjDKI&feature=youtu.be

This is the only soft tubed build that looks good, and I didn't see them until you pointed them out.

One of my all time favorite builds uses soft tubing and passive rads

This was so much fun to design the graphics for. Always wanted to do this theme in this case! Got to wrap entire panels in car vinyl and get in on the little details. Super happy with how this build came out!

I would assume there are a variety of ways such as hosting a successful webcast that showcases tech products.

Stunning!! A feature for sure. I've seen this case a few times and each has always been a creative masterpiece. Reminds me of Transformers, Terminator and now... performance racing!

The soft tubing looks too busy for my liking - would have been interesting to see with hard tubing. Just personal preference though... Nice system and congrats on the feature!

the mclarean itself is one of the most beautiful cars ever, this is on the same level

This looks amazing! The only issue I have is with the graphics card choice. I would have dropped down to a 3700x and upgraded the graphics card to get more performance. The card's accent color is red and does not match the build. 99% of people would not care about that but you put SOOO much effort here that it seems weird for that to be off. If it fit the build then I would not have said anything.

Yeah in the description I explained that it was sponsored by AMD, so I didn't have much of a choice :)

If this is Mclaren ten I imagine

Mercedes would have MSI Ace motherboard, 3900x with 3600 Mhz cl 16 g.skill RAM

And Ferrari: MSI Godlike, 3950x ,3800 Mhz cl14 g.skill
