This build has been a side protect now for a while, I started it over a year ago and have slowly gotten it to this point. the 1050 ti is a hold over, it will be replaced by a 2070 super in a few months That said the 6 pin was my first custom sleeved cable and as I knew it wasn't long term permanent I didn't make another to improve on it, so don't judge it lol.
The only stock cable in this whole rig is the twin ribbon USB 3.1 and that's because I didn't want to tackle making a custom cable for it, Every other cable has been sleeved/shortened (usually both). As such it makes for a very clean build.
As for parts choices I was very torn (and still am) about making a SFFPC or doing a nice fully customized PC with full water cooling, so I compromised with the mini-ITX board and the 280x case giving me the option to plop the hardware into a SFFPC down the road without having to buy all new hardware.
I'll be updating this tomorrow.
