Very nice looking! I know this is an old post, but I am curious about the components that you used. What motherboard/RAM/graphics/case/etc did you use?

if you get his ip address you could download peergaurdian and block his ip address through that

Gasburner (author)Samsmart932009-05-29

Install Zonealarm, and any other firewalls you can find. download AVG and a few other antiviruses. If you can, find out his IP address, then search google for a way to block his IP address, and also delete him from your msn list :D

 Cover up the fans and pour mineral oil in it

Nice look... how many fans? Are there any openings to let off heat? (Lol being a laptop user, my biggest issue is burning my wrists well I type)

author

Looks like there are 3 fans.

what i would like to do is get a laptop i big fat laptop will be better fit the motherboard and stuff in the case and use a big fat fan to cool down the processor to easily overclock it and it would leave lots of space for harddrives and cd drives

author
hg341 (author)ReCreate2009-04-07

you cant easily overclock...saying that will cost you big bucks!

author
ReCreate (author)hg3412009-04-07

erm...no. ovelclocking costs no big bucks(unless if you hire someone or something) In fact,overclocking,sometimes,can be done without even downloading anything,though the bios. And there are some(i think) open source apps to overclock a pc most that i,ve seen are free

author
hg341 (author)ReCreate2009-06-07

i know that im just saying that if you dont do it right or you set the cpu's voltage too high(i was saying that you where being overconifdent)

i can't overclock with my bios

author

Oh, I get it.

Davidnipp (author)2009-06-01

Dude that's sweet, just find somehow hide of all that wiring and that will make it look so much more 31337!

Samsmart93 (author)2009-05-02

hey...your computer is very nice...

Nice man, seen one of these for sale AGES ago. A tip would be try putting LEDs or other light source so the light passes INTO the case walls. I can't really articulate what im thinking very efficiently here but ill try. Having the light go WITH the glass as apposed to through the glass, especially on the edges of the tower will look REALLY cool. Try it, post it. Now to go find an acrylic case for myself....hmm

waffleman (author)2009-01-11

ReCreate (author)waffleman2009-04-07

author
livesteamfan (author)2008-11-14

This looks like something I would do.

author
Jran Sakarra (author)2008-10-25

How bad is the EMI due to the case has no shielding?

author
dave47561879 (author)2008-10-13

Looks exactly like the Vigor Stealth.....

author
natetetete (author)2008-09-13

I love this case You should wrap the wires with wire loom tho Wont actually help cooling but will look nice You could also remove unused or obsolete wiring & connectors but I wouldnt recommend it Nice build!

author
DIYDragon (author)2008-09-12

Nice, how big is that case? Seems like there's lots of room in there - More space would've been helpful for my computer I'm making... : [ Had to do several last minute "oops fixes".

author
trumpkin (author)DIYDragon2008-09-13

It's a mid tower case. It was nice having a lot of space in there while I was puting it together since this was my first build.

author
shooby (author)2008-09-12

5 fans total (including p s)?

author
trumpkin (author)shooby2008-09-13

author
Spectrace (author)2008-09-12

LOL! nice... you got your parts off newegg... i know because i've looked at some of those exact ones. :P

author
delerious010 (author)2008-09-12

Very cool build. It could do with some shrink wrap tubing for the cables to give it a more "polished" look.

author
nicknack171 (author)2008-09-12
