PC Gamer says: "Nice deconstructed set-up from Donny, although we wonder if it's strictly necessary to have such a focus on fans when most of the kit is outside the box... Also: water hazard. Best move that bottle."

4. Omar Lashko

Nice yellow trim, Omar

PC Gamer says: "Omar, we like the cut of your jib. Although your hardware is still work in progress, we admire what you're doing with those custom cables. Call us budding Gok Wan-gers, but that yellow is really working with the black case."
