    thanks man!

    yeah, the RGB leds is so amazing:D youll see it at crew lan, when the others get something organized:D

    thanks man!

    small update:
    the case is packed down in a box, and soon on its way to madrid. i hope it will survive the trip without any damage. im heading off to get the motherboard tray fixed today, so i can mount the GD85 on it, along with some other hardware so i can show the other guys who is going to madrid how to play battlefield:lol:

    and since updates without images is sooo booring, here is a test bench i made for a danish overclocker

    Nice techbench!

    Have you got any tips for applying vinyl to acrylic? I'm having a hard time getting something i cut out on a vinyl cutter to stick onto some acrylic without getting loads of bubbles.


    I'm sure Beto will get there fine :)

    thanks man!

    start from a corner and work your way out, while holding the vinyl up, and slowly aply little at a time with something flat:p its VERY hard.

    you guys have NO idea of how long time i just spend installing an os on this machine! OOH THE PAIN!

    first, the trouble of getting a temporary gfx card
    then, when installing win7 on one of my spare disks, it wouldnt format and create a new partition, hours, drives and cursewords later, it works
    then, after installing win7, it goes to black screen whenever i want to finish the installation (the part where you put username, date and clock etc) i reboot a couple of times in normal mode, and then in safemode. aparently you cant finish this part of the installation in safe mode -.- so i try my way trough it with "n" for next, and enter. last being able to boot into windows in safe mode, with the usename "n" and the password "nnn" but not being able to boot normally.

    starts over, same thing happens. swaps out the dvi cable with a vga and BOOM! running like a baby... all in all, 6 hours -.- pics will be up after i play with it a little

    I had to pop in here just to say Beto looks amazing when you see it live. The modular cable conducts in the motherboard plate are brilliant!
