Yep, it's another red and black gaming PC as per request from a high school friend. He kinda wanted a red / black theme and I ran with it. 

Named after everyone's favorite dragon.

Nothing too special going on besides using 120mm fans at the front despite the 140mm mounts available. This was mainly due to most of the front being blocked off for 140mm fans. The Xtraflos also bring in a surprising amount of airflow despite the restrictive front panel.

I was a bit worried that the case might be too red but it looks pretty good with the slightly tinted glass panel. It's also surprisingly quiet despite how the HDD brackets don't look very specialized for reducing vibrations.
