    Project Doh n8

    If you guys ever get in the mood to make a small tweak for this, itd be nice if you made a link of Project View on the right of the threads title in the forum list. I know it only saves lazy people like me one click but then youve got the option right there to open it in project view

    LMFAO!!

    Project view?? In what sense now?? If you click the links you go to everywhere you need to go.
    Or am I missing something??

    Waiting on the case to come, sorting out some finances too as I know I'm going to have to spend some money on this, which doesnt bother me at all, and tbh, id like to see a nice rig go up for sale.

    Maybe a nice DFI board with some sleek DDR3 RAM and some nice gpu power, maybe a 4850x2 or something. Ill push for some sponshorship as this will hopefully be broadcast widely across the forums.

    I need to buy parts and tools, which i expected in the beginning. Im dying for this case to arrive. Its going to be amazing.....

    Thanks guys once more.

    thanks dude...shes much better, fortunately was just a small infection so nothing major.

    Update on parts..


    Got some RGB lights coming from Mayhem, amazing donation, this shall definitely add some "ooomph" to the build. Got the 2 hdds coming out aswell and that cpu should be on its way from Vienna, Italy (omg, thats a trip and half)

    Case should be with me sometime soon...

    My damaged phase unit ( http://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?p=332937#post332937 ) is hopefully going to be sold to someone and all of the proceedings towards that will be going on this mod.

    Hoping to buy a nice DFI board off a friend (unless someone has one for donation?) and look into some nice GPU power as I dont know what is happening with the donations for those.

    Im still looking for parts guys...will be taking some pics of what ive got the second they arrive.

    Thanks once again to everyone whos getting involved.....

    Waiting on the case now. Will be testing the CPU in my brothers rig over the next few days to see exactly what it is.

    Gotta shoot off out for a bit now. I will come on later and post some more...hopefully the case should arrive in the next few hours, ill get some nice shots of that and some ideas.....

    I do have a socket 775 board laying around, it's a Gigabyte p35 S3.
    There's one problem: the board was sold to somebody and he returned it to me claiming it was DOA. However, it had previously worked just fine for me. I'll get the thing tested soon, and if it works, it's yours.

    Postage from here to UK is surprisingly cheap: 11 euro and it'll be there in 3 days.
    I'll update you soonish on the status of the board, but please dont get too excited just yet :p

    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
