Nope, fortunately Gigabyte's motherboard with the tan digital camo tied all our paint/modding together. :D
It's the burden of going unique. haha
Glad this mod is getting the recognition it deserves!
Here's a couple links I was able to pull up:
Haha, now "coming out of the closet" means something entirely different for us now :D Glad I'm not the only one banished to a closet lol
Ok Ok..... I will work on more.... in the meantime you can see the entire build log and pics here ;)
Thanks, hoping the end result stays as beautiful. As for the Jack.... that's for the fact I'm married and my gaming battle station is in a closet. LFMAO! :D
I understand your viewpoint :D Standing become an ease to the torture of sitting.......after slipping a disk and fracturing some vertebrae. :p
Thank you! I will be taking final pics after I get the windows installed and the vinyl designs in place. This weekend I hope to paint the dragon/flames on the top.
Hopefully, I'm trying to bring a company on board to hold a contest between my desk and Gadget Joe's Alter-Ego desk (https://twitter.com/joe_gadget/status/934183595073253377)
Simple thing of money. Didn't get a sponsor for the motherboard and gpu.... yet. The gpu and motherboard can be swapped in and out fairly easy so I'm not too worried :D
the watercooling and custom sleeving parts were just under $3k, I think I calculated just over $5k when you're all said and done.... but that also includes some labor costs if you can't build the desk yourself.
Thank you! :)
It's still a great build for everything I do.
I haven't overclocked this one but my Phenom 945 before this I did for a while. Once it's under water in my new desk pc, I will overclock some more.
"Hate off" is that like a build off done in anger? Haha just kidding and thank you.
Almost all the parts were donated by companies or fellow veterans. The CPU I got for almost nothing from a fellow forum mate and veteran. He would've donated it for free but needed a few bucks to get his car fixed
If you think that's good. Check out the new photo I posted on the build. It's of behind the mobo
In the future I hopefully will have more money
If I had the money to start with the C70, I would've.
Thank you sir! It was a fun mod to do and the cause just gave me extra motivation. :D
I will respond with... I absolutely enjoyed my service and regardless of the nastiness I was exposed to, I would do it again in a heartbeat. :)
Thank you! It was a fun mod to do. :)
Thank you, definitely took some work.
Thanks and the DDR2 was super pricey.... free hand me down.
Thanks. The build was about the aesthetic not hardware.
I have better hardware, but that was the only GIGABYTE motherboard on hand. Which was a requirement.
I'm actually selling the case now that the competition is over.
Probably not, but thank you for the score :)
I did that whole mod with just a jigsaw and drill. My Dremel died after cutting the plastic front.
Well it wasn't enough to place in the modding competition. So it wouldn't surprise me.
Thanks, the motherboard cover wasn't too hard. Just took a bit using my calipers to measure the spacing between everything.
You gotta do what's needed... right?
Sure can, the whole world can be loaded at once with 12 gb RAM lol. I tested it out and connected to my local server. Didn't lag even during the rain. Settings were moderately high. The Athlon didn't hold it back. So for all you parents out there.... don't buy your kid an i7 just so they can play minecraft.
