  • I'm now officially a fan of Henry Cavill. Loved that he showed his mistake with the cooler and then took the time to fix it.
  • The Witcher? Well, yeah, but he also has played SUPERMAN in 3 movies (4 if you count the cameo in Shazzam!) and has appeared in many other films.
    He seems the type to be a Gamer however.
    Primo parts for that rig, but I'm sure he can afford it. Loved that he left in the part with the cooler upside down. We've all done it! At least he remembered to peel off the plastic backing on the GPU before installing it (I've been guilty of that one myself.)
  • Boy, this takes me back. 😂
  • I've never done a water cooled rig like that, so dont know how long it takes. But going from daylight to night and he closed his curtain is hilarious.
  • Finally a high profile personality I can relate to. My family can now accept that looking at PC components in admiration during a build IS NOT weird. Thanks to Henry Cavill that is, LOL. Btw, good job on the cabling management there,considering this is his first build.
