MSI MAG PANO 100L PZ White Project Zero Featured Build

At Computex 2024, Leo and the crew showed us many new dual chamber cases and reverse connector motherboards. In this video we'll be combining the two to make an MSI sponsored build using the MAG PANO 100L PZ white case, a Z790 Project Zero motherboard and some other white MSI components. So let's throw all this lot together and see how easy, or difficult Project Zero is to build with…
