I built this as a personal computer in May 2018. My life revolves around multitasking and office work, with gaming on the side, so I wanted a build that could work perfectly for that.

I also wanted to get away from the gargantuan, large computers that I have historically focused on building, and instead build a computer that was slender and more sharp looking, and preferably wall-mountable. The Lian Li PC-06 case makes this possible.

My inspiration for this build comes in part from the user Aphrenedge, who instead of Mega Man used Metroid figures: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/DbKBD3

I will upload more pictures once I have it mounted on the wall.

Some of these photos look like you designed a futuristic pinball machine. Outstanding and well done sir.

I don’t mean to nag, but some custom cables would look nice, other wise those bends are nice +1

I agree, cables are the next on the list. Great suggestion. Thanks!

You would benefit from a quad channel memory set. One of the big features of Threadripper vs Ryzen is quad channel memory controller. It would be a shame not to use this, particularly as you are not making use of the 60 PCIe lanes direct to the CPU either. (Would recommend G.Skill Trident Z RGB quad kit - as you like RGB - either 3200 CL 14 or 3600 CL 16... better than Corsair Vengeance RGB which is only 3600 CL 18/19 so quite slack timings). Threadripper benefits quite a lot from fast memory like the modules I suggested.

Besides this, colourful PC. I can imagine it was a lot of fun putting it together. Congrats.

The one mega man figure holding the tube looks so sick. +1

Finally! Another X399 mATX! The custom loop is very nice!

This is so cool

My only problem is that I can't take my eyes off of those CPU tube bends to look at the rest of the build. +1

Man, this is cool! Fun build all around. I'll second the recommendation for custom cables down the line - that would really set it over the top.

That's insane the bends are amazing, and the front mounted rgb power supply one of the best builds I've seen in a while.

How are the temperatures?

A 1950X is a lot of horsepower for a case that small! Wouldn't a 1920X or 1900X have been easier to cool with that size radiator?
