    It looks STUNNING. Great job Craig! :D

    I have a couple of quick questions:
    - Does it look like you thought it would?
    - How was NVISION? Biggest LAN ever? :D

    Thanks man! Shipping was excellent. It arrived with no issues at all, and worked flawlessly right out of the box. I'll have some good pics coming from CPU magazine.

    Yeah, it's kind of sad, isn't it. I feel a little lost right now...

    The router is my next mini-project, before the next big one.

    I shipped it back to Nebraska last night. Hopefully it arrives as well as it did in San Jose.

    I did want to beat a few people. The would walk up and just poke at it... Gaah!

    Tough question to answer. To be honest, it does look a little different than I thought it would. I think that's mostly because I looked at it for 9 months with no door, and only about 4 days with one. It's a little weird.
    Nvision was awesome. I didn't get much gaming in though. I spent most of my time wandering around and talking to people.

    Thanks guys! The interior is the biggest showpiece in my opinion, and yet it's the one thing that's never seen.

    Thanks! Yeah, I'm hoping for no failures either. They'd be a pain to replace!



    So, how did nVision go?? I ended up with a 2nd place finish. There were a lot of great comps there, any of which could have won.

    Oh, and while I'm thinking of it... I'd like to thank Boddaker for giving the Rogue and myself a ride to FedEx after the event was over. First class man!

    Wish I could have been there, but the Atlantic Ocean and my bank manager conspired against me! :waah:

    While you were wandering about, maybe you should have had it run your build-log photos as a slideshow screensaver.

    Going back I see it's been quite a while since I posted in this thread last, but that does in no way reflect the amount of praise I've given your work in my thoughts. This work log has been pure delight to follow!! Everything you've done has been _TOP GRADE_!!! As far as I can remember you've taken no shortcuts anywhere. I truly admire your dedication and skill! Also, you are my hero for cramming so much stuff into such a small space, this gives me hope that I might be able achieve a similar feat with the build that I'm planning atm.
    The case looks fantastic!! I totally agree with Xtrafresh about the article + pro photoshoot.

    Thank you for sharing your great work with us! I'm very much looking forward to your next project!!! 8D¨

    [edit]
    Congratulations on your 2nd place! =) You would have won for sure if every one voting had know how awesome the inside was!!

    Glad I could help out Craig. Congrats on your 2nd place finish, you deserve every bit of the prize money, new motherboard and both GTX 260 video cards!! :D

    I had a blast as well, just hangin with you, Ton, Arron, Anthony and the other modders. We managed to keep ourselves quite entertained once our rigs got moved up to the front! lol

    Hope your case arrives unscathed, and enjoy your prizes! :clap:

    a beautiful hunk of a computer you have there. If I had to describe it in one word....SOLID. That's some serious packing skillz you have. I wonder what the trunk of your car looks like when you and the missus take a trip???

    Hey, there's always next year!

    If I would have time before I left to get one ready, that might have been a great idea!

    Thanks! It's been a great project to work on, and has really helped me to step up my game for the next rig. It's all in the details!

    The Rogue should finally arrive back at the house tomorrow. When it does, I'll see about getting some nice photos.

    Thanks Bod! You think I deserve it, and I think you deserved to place higher as well. Regardless of the outcome, I had a great time. Since I'm in the middle of nowhere, my event attendance will be pretty sparse. I'll plan on making it next year though! I look forward to seeing you there! (So, what's your next project?)

    Thank you. It was all learning experience. I'll be better prepared next year. Both with my rig, and presentation.

    Thanks CK! It's been great reading all of your comments throughout the build!

    Thanks man!

    Thanks! I appreciate it!

    Solid... that's a great word to use. Especially weighing in at over 80 pounds! Ironically, I do keep things pretty organized, well, everything but my work area!

    Well, I have always had a sweet spot for Tetris... :D

    Thanks!

    Yeah, the Rogue will be getting the GTX's... I'll put them to good use!

    Yeah, I'm all signed up, and I'll definitely be there!

    Welcome home mate, and congrats on the 2nd place win... you've had easily one 1st if I had my say in things. What kind of prizes were you honored with for 2nd place?

    Is there any chance you could upload some hi-res "beauty-shots?"
    I hope you don't mind but I nominated you at MDPC.

    Congrats again.
