    Right guys...

    This is where I have to say :

    Due to some unforseen circumstances and a family matter, I will no longer be able to do this build. I have got in contact with everyone who sent parts and will be sending the packages back to them no questions asked.

    I would like to thank everyone for their amazing co operation in this build. Im very sad that it never got off the ground, and i think it would be an amazing project and idea when/if ever tried again.

    Kind Regards

    If I had any hardware here I'd donate it as you seem to be pretty skilled.

    Good luck and have some rep. :thumb:

    Thanks dude. Im hoping to get some support in the modding community for this build.

    Mainly because I believe that computers are to be enjoyed by all, and I myself love nothing more than looking through someone build log to see whats theyve done and how theyve gone about doing it.

    Materials would be amazing!!! Thats mainly what im after.
    The odd LED lying around, or some acrylic your not using. A completed Res would be absolutely AMAZING!!!!!

    Keep it coming guys, lets build up some community support on this one..

    Should have parts arriving soon, and i will be starting on the main case tomorrow to get the ball rolling.

    Keep thw donations coming guys. Im still looking for a mobo and maybe a psu as I cant trust an old 350watt one to do the jon. Would rather a sturdy one. So let me know what you guys have got.

    LETS GET THIS GOING!!!

    Will be doing some case designs this week and deciding a theme for the overall project.

    Suggestions and donations are still always welcome as there are still some parts needed.
    The support I've received for this project is great across all forums.

    So i just want to say thankyou to everyone whos put in the effort so far and for those who are willing for this build to be completed.

    I am also going through the motions of selling this rig for Charity. I am undecided of what charity to go with as of yet but it will be a good cause for people who deserve more than what they have been dealt.

    My ideas for charities are as follows:

    From the search below

    Charities

    Cancer Research UK

    World Child Cancer

    CLIC

    Breast Cancer Care


    (Cancer affects alot of people and we all have to live with it in our family lives, I think this will be a worth cause.)


    The case will be hopefully sold on Ebay with all of the funds going to charity. The cost of shipping will be covered by myself to keep the total donation as high as possible.

    If anyone has any ideas or suggestions then please feel free to get in touch.

    More updates to come soon.

    Some plans are going to be drawn up on friday after I come home from my fathers (Broke his arm, in a cast for 7 weeks. OUCH!!) as he needs some help moving things around. Ill plot out my entire plan and schedule over the weekend and come back with some updates for everyone.

    Hopefully start work on this next monday, even though I am hoping to start work on Sunday, dying to get my hands on my jigsaw again. Probably going to borrow some tools from my father too, and bring some materials home from a friends pub which he is kindly donating also.

    THANKS GUYS!!!

    If I had to choose, it would be the child cancer. Children have experienced so little in their lives, so they deserve to get all the chances available.

    I was thinking of that, especially as alot of us started our lives in the modding world when we were younger.

    Keep the suggestions coming though guys....still always open to more ideas. :thumb:

    Main thoughts for charities atm are a child cancer charity. This is simply because children havent had the chance to live their lives yet and everyone at some stage in their life was a child.

    Will be getting out in the shed (the second this welsh weather holds up) and i'll be getting some things set up.

    Only a small update but still an update none the less. XD

    Thanks guys....
