No no no.. it was sold THROUGH my business. A customer ordered this custom build. But for the few days that I have it, I will enjoy playing with it!

Yeah I know wire management could use a bit of work, but I just had SOOO many extra cables with the 750TX.

Yeah. They are sending a replacement... it was damaged in the mail, unfortunately.

Amazing pictures and hardware of course, very envious.
Get some good wiring done and you got yourself a beast.

nice hardware. I really suggest redoing the wire management. Zipties, cable clamps or something. Not trying to sound like a ****, but as a customer I wouldn't accept that.

Yeah, the only major issue I find with the wires is the bunch of SATA cables right there that you can see in the window. But I threw the wires all together in a hurry so that I could test the hardware and everything. I'll make sure to clean it up before it leaves for its owner.
