    Well the projects finished.

    We have all seen it, we all love it.

    For me the enjoyment of finishing a project is what its about, does the pc really need to work?

    I think not.

    When i made Monster2, i had only intended it to be a case build, but peer pressure made me stick a pc in it.

    There's a lake right next door to me. I'll knock up one of those chairs they used to use to dunk witches with 350 years ago. I shall drive the daemon out of it:D:D:dremel:
    Alternatively drive it down the dump and lob it in the crusher:worried:
    If you think back a few yaers, it was all about the case and the modding. The rest was usually a basic set up just so it qualified it as a PC.

    Well, because I'm a BT junkie and am going on a 2 week cruise on Saturday I'll make sure to have internets on the ship. I enjoy all the project logs, and can't bear to miss the end of stealthlow!

    I think Attila's last two MOTY wins with fairly standard hardware in awesome cases shows that the case and modding part still holds more weight - a lot of modders compensate for an average mod with extreme hardware.

    Not that I think that this is an average mod Jeff, you always try something different from the rest.

    Very true have a look at most of the awesome mods they have not gone over board with the most spec'd out specs

    It is actually. It was only the pump going stupid the other day. It fired back up and has been good as gold. It pretty hot here today and the temps are still brilliant with all the fans running at minimum speed.

    It's been hammered with bench marks and not missed a beat, doesn't even get flustered. I'm just waiting for the final part now in about 6 weeks time and this one is finished totally.

    My next project arrive today in a rather large box. It may be one that I go crazy on, it's just begging for it. But I'll say no more for now as I still need to think about what I'm actually going to do with it:dremel::dremel:

    Sorry Jeff but I'm going to be a woman now (despite the spendid honour you bestowed upon me the other day of honorary lad ;)) but on the new project you're about to start what the hell are you going to do with it WHEN IT'S FINISHED since you don't need another one? :hehe:

    Right now I've got 4 sitting here awaiting the treatment. Ok ones not mine. One will be getting sorted out and given to my boy for his new rig to go in.( Christmas/ 18th Birthday pressie). That will leave me with Bulldogs box and the other one. My plan is to build another rig, so when Saturday Night Special comes apart, I'm not stuck on the laptop for weeks on end. Whether the 2nd rig ends up in a redone bulldogs box or the other case is yet to be decided. So does thats make a slightly more sense now?...No?:duh:
    All makes sense to me:D

    lol Thanks a lot Blarte. It took a while to get there , had a few ups and downs, but it got there in the end.

    I've just looked back at the log. 739 post and over 63,000 views. I didn't actually notice how long it had run on for.

    Oh well it's a new week tomorrow and time to start a new one.

    You'll like this one Blarte, blinged up paint work on an Antec 300. It's not mine though.
