    We are also going to be replacing the stock window (which has fan holes) with a custom one that is clear to provide a better interior view, as well as adding a PSU shroud to the design and some other odds and ends we're working on customizing for the build, including an attempt to add working analog style gauges to the front of the case similar to this:

    Changed out the stock window and also removed the drive bays since we're only using M.2 SSD on this build

    HUGE Thanks to CableMod for their generous donation of the new PRO Series cables in Greenstone with aluminum combs to match our build theme, these are going to look amazing inside the case!

    Now it's starting to get legit. Painted the heatspreaders on these Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 to match the military-theme, loving it!

    A new sponsor has come onboard and we just received the package they shipped. We'll be announcing their involvement soon, any guesses who it is?

    MartinoMods is happy to announce our newest sponsor for this project, FrozenCpu.com!

    They saw what we were doing and reached out to extend their interest in assisting with the build.

    After looking through their site we found some items that will really help bring this build together, including some gauges and a bezel to fit them in, plus some cool "Made in America" badging.
    Alex got us the shipment quickly and the addition of these gauges is going to help us get this project completed much sooner because of it.

    Full video is now live so you can see this beauty in action.

    Original plan was to run a 30 day auction on Ebay, but it appears that is restricted to the real estate section and fixed price listings. Auctions cap out at 10 days max on Ebay.
    As such, we've scheduled the auction to begin Thursday March 1st at 7pm EST and end on Sunday March 11th at 8pm EST.

    There is a link to the auction in the video description, although be aware that since it's scheduled and not live yet, clicking that link will just give you an error message from Ebay until it's live.

    The auction is live on Ebay now and will run through Sunday March 11th at 8pm EST.

    Good luck to all those bidding and we greatly appreciate anyone who takes time to share the auction link and help us spread the word.
    You'll see on the Ebay link that we have 100% feedback rating and that 100% of the auction proceeds will be donated to Wounded Warrior Project
