My custom A4000D...

I once more started a project and once more is an A4000!
Sadly the last one was sold some years ago so since I regretted it, I thought of building one from scratch...
Since I'm maintaining a blog for some time now, all the updates will be done there and I'll be hot-linking the threads here with description.

It's not something important but my journey into making the A4000 as I'd want her to be


I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do

No way man. I have seen a lot better ones!
It's a lot far from being even characterized
Cheers for the enthusiasm though \o/

I really like the way you have such patience with your builds, always top quality work. Cables neat and tidy and thinking about cooling, little custom mods, etc.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the good words guys!
One more update today about "Deneb's custom cable".

P.S. I'll be updating the first post in every update as well for the thread to be more tidy.

@fitzsteve
Thanks for the constant support my friend.

@orange
Sorry but I really don't like holes in the original case. The only invasion I did was on the PSU which now brings out the hot air (from PSU and from the innards).
