Ah, with Gigantea all wrapped up except for putting it back together and adding a awesome little badge that I got from the guys at nVidia while at PDXLAN 28, it's time to move on to the next project. Introducing Project: Rehab, my entry for the Gigabyte 30th Anniversary Mod Challenge. The idea for this build has been rolling around in my head for a couple months now and this seems like the perfect time to put it in writing. The name and the plan: I've decided on calling this build Rehab because part of my goal is to take a Fractal Define R4 that has served me well over the years and rehabilitate it. Give it fresh, new looks, updated hardware, updated style. It's going in dirty and coming out clean. The design and theme: I love the R4. So much that I actually have 2. But it's interior is dated compared to today's cases where they have dropped the drive bays in favor of room for loop setups. So the interior will be gutted and replaced by an interior setup that allows for a custom cooling loop, an inverse board, and mounting the GPU vertically to show it off. The theme will be based on old school hot rods from the 30's. Chrome and billet and automotive themed parts, and the case is definitely getting an old school flame job. More info will definitely be coming as I start tearing into the project, but for now, let's meet the patient back in her heyday. This is when I really started messing around and cleaning up the insides of my computers. It rocked an unlocked Ivy Bridge i5 and a GTX770, a nice little combo for gaming. Through the years of upgrading rigs and stealing parts, it was downgraded to my work PC with an i3 and integrated graphics. Oh how the mighty fall, LOL. So let's get her on the table and begin the rehab.
