Re: Thanks pdxlan I built it :)

Great job on the build and thanks for sharing. Be sure to post updates as you fine tune the wire management and the look of the rig.

Congratulations on an awesome win!

The Fans and The Lighting

I used CaseLabs ( RIP :cry: ) FlexBay Fan/Radiator Mounts for the fans in the front and the rear of the case so they would match and would look like they belong together. The gun metal color matched the mod exactly, and I love the unusual grill pattern they used to use (reminds me of Star Wars). htt...

The Wiring & GPU

I had never made my own wires before but I wanted ALL of this Mod to be made by me this time. So although I was going to need custom wires, I didn't want anything fancy that would look new and not match the time period or rugged look of the mod. I searched online through a ton of different options a...

Cutting top and side panels on the main box

Time to cut the box! Using a removable motherboard tray from a Lian-Li case https://i.postimg.cc/fySRJybX/IMG-7100.jpg The rear I/O panel on the motherboard tray will be on top of the modded box. I first made several stencils out of paper until I got the fit to be perfect, then placed it over the me...

The Wood Base

I had never built anything out of wood before, so YouTube to the rescue! Watched a few videos on how to make a box, using pocket holes, and multi-layer staining, and I'm off! https://i.postimg.cc/Mp6XYW3k/IMG-7495.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/CK6Z1W43/IMG-7488.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/sgmGFBGD/IMG-7490....

High Voltage

About 11 years ago I saw an old Oscilloscope from the 1960's in a flea market and I immediately fell in love with the design and thought it would be awesome to put a computer in one of them. When I got back home I looked on eBay for an inexpensive Oscilloscope and found one for sale near Salem. So I...

Re: Backpack discussion

I just ordered my backpack last night, but I'm worried I missed filling in a field. I didn't see anywhere to identify what I'd like embroidered on mine. Did i miss something or should I be expecting an email/msg about it? Matt will send you an email with a link to a form to fill out. All is well. :)

Re: Storage Reccomendations (what drive to buy)

WD Black are rock solid IMO, it's what I have always used for platter drives, and WD Red for my NAS.
I've had 1 WD Black fail in the last 15 years and WD replaced it and sent me a new one.

Re: Suggestions on new build

Awesome that gives me a couple of options. I'm looking at a new gpu, and i'm wondering if i'm going to notice enough of a difference on a rx 580 or do I save the $50 and get the rx 570. I"m looking at the 8gb version of either I would not game on a higher resolution than 1080p on either of those ca...

Re: Suggestions on new build

Fractal Meshify C Mini. Easily take that cooler and probably one of the best series of cases on the market for airflow. Only negative is that it isn't much smaller than the full size ATX version. Love that Fractal case. Also the InWin 301 is a beautiful and affordable Micro-ATX Case that supports 2...

Re: Help with new computer (2 problems)

There are USB-to-PS2 adapters you can try that work with both keyboards and mice. They work great with a "basic" mouse, more advanced mice tend to not always work.
