I've been meaning to post this build somewhere for a long time! Unfortunately, I have no build log as I honestly never dreamed it would evolve into something like this. This is the end result of a 2-year long upgrade and many iterations along the way. But the release of the Tou turned this build upside down, so I just had to snatch one and run away with it!
I preface by saying I do not see myself as a modder. The most I tend to do is "cut out some things over there" or "tap a few holes over here". However, I do take pride in creating builds that accentuate chassis that are already works of art. My inspiration for builds come from the case itself. In architecture, the building (form) is only half its beauty. It requires an interior (function) to complete its purpose and maintain its atmosphere. Case designers (especially here at InWin) are talented individuals that put their heart and soul into their designs, and I wish to do right by them and turn their works into complete sculptures!
It is in that vein that I present to you my Tou build, I0. Named after the volcanic moon of Jupiter and play off "Input-Output." This is my personal setup and is not sponsored in any way. This is the final result of 2-year long upgrade. It most certainly didn't happen overnight!

Lastly, a picture of my Tou in its natural habitat!
I hope everyone enjoyed the results of the build as much as I enjoyed building it and using it as my daily machine. I could not ever imagine getting rid of my Tou. I'm very much the proud owner of an incredible InWin product!
