Powered By: Okay, I just got back to St. Augustine, where I have my real tools available, and my personalyear old hp laptp using gaming computer. A non-functioning desktop that has been a constant evolution for nearly 3 years. It started off as a dual core amd in a nzxt case with green wiring and a crappy nvidia 6800 running 2 gb of ocz gold ram. Then, after my video card literally burst into flame(WTF?!?!?), I replaced it with an 8800 gts. Then, after the plane ride down, I found my mobo and cpu to be fried... so, i ripped it apart and waited a year. Now, it has a dual core AMD 6000 cpu with a gigabyte s-series all solid capacitor mobo running socket AM2, and 4 GB of corsair xm2 ram. BUT! My GPU no longer functions, it refuses to start, and it squeals when I try to power my system up. JUST PERFECT!!! Now, I am running all of my computing endeavors on a severely underpowered 3 year old Hp laptop... I have contacted EVGA, and I am hoping the warranty is still good. If not, I really hope I can get a sponsor who sells GPU's, cuz I have zilch for funding. This mod is aimed at ramping my computer up from a normal gaming rig, to a badass custom case-mod. There is no strict plan, I'm just gonna go with the flow and do as much cool stuff as possible. Also, unless I can get a sudden influx of money or a liquid cooling sponsor, I'm gonna be doing this mod with fan cooling, not liquid. Let us begin!!! I started off tearing the previous rig down, and installing my new mobo, cpu, and ram, along with the stock air-cooler(until I can get a better replacement). I am also lucky to be a proud owner of the Lian-Li PC65B, so I have a massive amount of ideas for what to do to the case. Heres the frame stripped down. The front of the case. The new mobo and such. The corsair ram... 4gb for 80$!!! Another shot... I decided to polish the case inside to a complete shine, and maybe the outside. More soon!
