so i had too much time one my hands ? so may say ... some might think it sucks , some might like it ,...

So once again i spend much time building this custom computer case myself with something called Knex ' this build is my third one i have made , the point is to see what i could accomplish this time and the results are all there , time required for this build was about 8 houres
it has taken me about a week and a half buildin it for about 3 houres a nite or so ,
here is what it turned out like this time

Talk about having a lot of time on your hands!

I can't tell if it's actually running, but is that thing properly grounded?

Ahahahaha! That's great man. At first I was like, "nah...that's not too much time...whoe...wait a second, what's this? OMG!" I can't say I've screwed around with something in that same ball park...who hasn't!? That one works though :D

Fisher Price is stealing your idea at this very moment.

so what inspired me to do this build was that the whole custom idea of a modders point of view , in this build i was lookin for somethin out of the ordinary as u see steal cases done up all the time i figured i would try something new for once ,with all these gamers talkin about cooling ect for gaming i tought what a good idea as this was so ventilated , as far as the build has taken time to build , the parts of it that was the hardest to make was the balls go true the pc while the computer remained inside so that it dosent hit any parts that are valuable or even damage anything and make it go beyond the wired setup and wires that goes tru that too , it been abit hard of the hands and time consuming , but at the end it was worth it seing it that it was workin and to be able to apreciate the mod made , alltough the beer on the front just happend to go along as i was makin the build and drinkin a beer , as my theme of this rig i would say it turned out pretty well since my first 2 other that i tried in the past , i cloulnt think of other mods to do at the time so
it was realy time consuming as i was buildin along and added the parts in the box after i was done makin it , so i had to rebuild and destry what i had previously done , next time i think i will stick to build it from start and add the computer components as i go on with the build and not make the build then the components
as far as i could say i just did this for the fun of it and see what i could come up with and i was inspired to post this along here as i just did this for showin a few frequent message boards i am member of and as the results i goten in response ''Dude '' Post This For Rig of the Month
both times i posted the custom towers i made
as people gotten amazed by it and with the good feetback i got i figured that i would give this a shot for rig of the month

i dint know where or if this will been see or whatsoever but if someone does see this well i am hoping for the best and who knows i might someday see my work on the cover or somethin

this build also has inspired me beaucause of the first 2 i made i had bad quality pics and wanted to show a little bit more of what it realy looked in reality

My First Atempt at buildin one was
http://www.maximumpc.com/forums/viewtop ... highlight=



also i was inspired to get my mobo fitted better and not loose fiting like i had in the other build here below , more time been spent to have the components fitted as it was a actual tower case that was meanth for the components installed in .... having a custom build computer , custom modded / tweaked windows i figured why not have a custom look for a tower :P

Switch you hosting to photobucket. I've never exceeded their bandwidth.

Unless that's because I have nothing worth looking at :(
