Default *** OCTARINE, The Colour Of Magic, By Wally West ***

Hey everyone, first timer here. If you have visited the build logs sub-forum you have probably seen my build. My first custom loop build was named Polar Horizon (http://www.overclock.net/t/1621608/other-finished-build-wallywest-polar-horizon/0_50) and my second one, which was a lot more popular, White Zenith http://www.overclock.net/t/1622091/inwin-303-white-zenith/0_50. It looks like InWin also liked my second one a lot because they offered me a sponsorship for an In Win 805 and an In Win Classic 750W Platinum and I gladly accepted.




The third build will be a clean build without heavy mods. It will be called OCTARINE, why Octarine? Because Octarine represents the color of magic from the universe Discworld from the author Terry Pratchett. I feel like this build should also be magic because it's my first (and not the last) sponsored build :)

Quote:
It was octarine, the colour of magic. It was alive and glowing and vibrant and it was the undisputed pigment of the imagination because wherever it appeared it was a sign that mere matter was a servant of the powers of the magical mind. It was enchantment itself.
