Most awsome WII ever to exist! May this be spread on many forums and websites!
Great mod! Graz on the front page on Engadget
I just saw that too! Makes a fellow dane very proud!
Yep, that's quite a feat Angel OD! The fact that it's the third Bit-Tech mod on there this year speaks to the level of awesomeness in these forums
Congrats on an epic mod
Bad feedback welcome? I don't think you're going to get any of that mate - that's an absolutely amazing piece of work!
Very well done
It's a true honor to get my stuff out there like this.
This worklog has had about 60.000 hits the last 24 hours!!
There's a lot of lovers AND haters out there, but we all know why we do these things!
On HardOCP front page, in case you haven't seen it yet. http://www.hardocp.com/news/2011/04/06/water_cooled_wii
Thx Codeflux - Didn't catch that one before now!
Just saw this linked off Engadget. Dunno why I didn't spot it on here
Just made tomshardware
Can't get enough of your work, truly awsome project that has that nice "I do it becase I want to" feeling. Keep it up.
Just came in here after spotting it on Tom's Hardware and read through the whole log. Glad to see that the mindset of "Too much is not enough" lives and breathes in your part of the world.
Good to see you getting the rightfully deserved attention dude
It's just the most advanced awesome console mod I've EVER seen, well besides diecyde's flame thrower ps3 c&c mod but this is far more sane & still a household console & probably the only wii that is water cooled I'd imagine & even if it weren't the only water wii I'm sure it's the most awesome looking one, absolutely fantastic show piece congrats on it spreading around the net Angel .
bit-techs server could barely handle the awesomeness buzzing around here the other night so I saved this for posting later .
I just realized you didn't do anything to the controller. How about something in solid billet to make play a little more treacherous?
Kempez <- Shame on you for not checking the forum enough!
Parge <- YAY! I can't hardly think of a more insane place to be featured than TomsHarware! Thank you M8!
The_Gnu <- Heh... I mod, Therefore I am! Right?
the_crippler <- Too much is not even close to being enough in here! Thank you sir!
Editor22 <- The attention almost woke me up in the middle of the night to see how many hits my worklog got man... Almost too much!
Waynio <- I think you exaggerate! I have no doubt that Bit-tech can handle 50.000 hits a day extra! Besides that I'm honored by your words!
In respect to all that has happened the last few days with this build, I gotta say I'm awe-struck!
I have a feeling that Bill from MnpcTech holds the blame for this! A few seconds after he posted the Wii on http://www.mnpctech.com/casemodblog it just took off and got a life of it's own.
I've learned that casemodding truly is a "15 minutes of fame" thing online! For 48 hours the hits just kept coming in. Now it has settled at a normal pace.
I must admit that I enjoy seeing my mod going "viral".
But when all is said and done, it's you guys in here who holds the honor for it! If it wasn't for the friendly competition in here, it would have never been made.
Apprx. 80-85% of the comments on other sites this has gotten has been "WHY?" and "Why not a PS3 or an Xbox?"
I can't remember a single "Why?" in my worklog. That's why I love this place! We give each other feedback, we comment with ideas, we give thumbs up.
We don't question the reasons for mods. We salute those who are willing to go over the edge, and push those who aren't!
I have the utmost respect for you guys, and I'm just proud to be a part of this amazing community! The things that are created in here are truly amazing! You guys
Cheaps <- I think this mod is done and over with! And solid billet aluminum would make for cold hands when playing strip-bowling on winternights!
: Don't insert naked picture here Angel! :
But I've got some ideas for the months to come! As you know spring and summer normally spells "working on the car", but the rules have changed... I have the CarPC to work on and I've summoned up the courage to finally contact a couple of large companys with ideas!
I'd cough 'em out, but I'll let you know if anything happens!
Yes. The major tech blogs have casemodblog on their radar. I knew Angel's creation would peak their interest and why I approached him. It is after all, "The Mother of all Wii Mods"
One of the reasons why your mod spread like wild fire through the media is because the Wii has become a "family" household item, just like VCRs in the 80s and DVD players in 90s. It has larger age range and demographic interest than the PS3 and Xbox. .....What do my kids and their friends talk about at school and church? Nintendo Wii games. My mother manages a retirement home with Wii Sports Bowling Thursday nights!
Besides that, Angel's design is beautiful, You just look at it and go "Wow" regardless if you're into game consoles or not.
Wow Angel, was looking for ideas for a new mod after my xbox
tought a Wii would be nice to mod...........then I saw your mod
AMAZING Like Bill said "The mother of all Wii mods"
Great job, Respect
