Hello and Introductions

Recommended Posts

Helloooooo From the UK.

Some veterans may remember me from the PimpRig/PcApex days and then shortly after when Myself and Solid Necro took over Voided Warrenty/AppetiteForTech.

 

Anyway, Its been a while since I touched a PC or windows ( Yes I went to the darkside lol ) 

Im currently using a pos stone computers laptop on windows 10. 

I'm kinda thinking about building a new gaming rig / media centre but I'm so out of the loop on tech etc its not even funny lol!

 

Anyway, Im gonna have a browze and will no doupt talk to many of you soon enough. 

ps please excuse any typo's. I just got out of hospital so spelling is not really a priority to me at the moment :P

Hello, been a while since I've had fun on a PC forum... like back when Trubritar's forum was around and active... looking forward to getting back into the forum life.

More of a lurker than a builder in the past life, but my current rig has got a bit more customisation, so hopefully something cool may develop.

Hope to have some parts for my Gaming rig in the not too distant future, and progress some CAD models / renders of the impending CAD rig - so expect piccies ;)

Hello Everyone,

 

My name is Michael, and I live in Brisbane, Australia. It's a glorious sunny but cool-ish day as we head into summer here....  jealous much?

I joined here after asking the google-monster to find me the best case modding forum.. this seemed to be it.

This forum seems to be really good when it comes to having lots of reference material, "how to's" and supportive constructive members.  I hope it's sufficiently active.

Project wise I have just built a dual system/one case setup in a Phanteks Enthoo Mini-XL case.  What an absolute pain.  Nothing wrong with the case itself but I still have issues to solve around case fan controls etc....

Vlad's advice No 1 : if anyone suggests you do a two system/one case build.. run screaming.  Or just cut yourself repeatedly while flushing money down the toilet. It'll be less painful and cheaper in the long run.

I'll do a thread on the joys of it at some point....

 

This left me with my old system and an unrequited urge to build a steampunk computer. Now I have seen a few of the SP efforts on this forum - particularly EVIE - and very much doubt I'll achieve that level of awesome but I'll give it a good go. 

Currently just in the concept stage, collecting ideas etc, but it will have a steamship theme. I was going to do a railway theme but this lets me work in the 'Kraken' a bit better....

 

So...  G'day :)

Welcome to The Zoo Michael!  The idea of doing a dual system build to me, seems silly.  I mean, why would you put 2 sets of hardware in 1 case, when you could get twice as many mod projects out of it!

Hi i'm Chris aka ImmodderNation. Long time lurker, finally decided to create an account. I have two builds, one is a watercooled core i7 930 that has bit the dust (RIP) and my newest build is a Skylake 6700k in a Thermaltake Core V31 that I plan to case mod. It will be "the creamsicle" in an orange and white color scheme.  

I'm also starting a YouTube channel that will showcase my mods and provide some tutorials. I do computer mods too, but most of my mods are of other electronics, so i'll probably be in "Non-PC worklogs" section alot. 

Mosquito i'm a big fan of Visible Contrast and i've seen a resurgence of monitors in cases since ibuypowers pc at PAX West.

So. Yeah, I've been lurking around for ~two weeks now, eagerly watching the question thread for the upcoming STaff Hangout Episode for which Bill was kind enough to invite me. I'm still blown away by the craftmansship of most of the mods that can be seen here - really awesome stuff going on!

 

I'm looking forward to sunday and talk/chat with all of you!

Hey, just joined the forums and wanted to introduce myself. I have been modding/modder PC for the last few years which started as custom sleeved cables and now making custom parts using my new OX CNC. I look forward to contributing to this community as well as learn from fellow users. I have attached a few photos of my recent work and will probably be creating a build log of a scratch build i'm planing in the coming months.

Just spent the day lurking and reading through some work logs and random posts.  

Can i just say that it's so nice so see a real "Modding Community" with some good old skool modding. What some of the build logs are producing is a total mind blow. ( no names )  It's a credit to what Bill and others have created here.  

Nowadays  my time is pretty much taken up with Car headlight and Tail light mods now.. (they actually pay some bills ) but out of the need for something a little different or totally insane or possibly just a piss take on the whole direction "PC Mods" is going (RE:Weekly hangout 48) i'm having a bit of fun with maybe one last case mod :)

And at the same time spend a bit more time with one of the best communities the internet has to offer.

 

Cheers D.

New to forums not new to pc I been playing with,building and overclocking  sine i can remember, I had a 286 that played the original doom ( not well or long) but it played it a couple times) .  I even built my own water-cooled pc with nothing more than parts ordered from modmymods and a crappy youtube video ( 4 years ago) and winged it off of that.  I gotten better and I been asked to build a few for a friend or 2 over the years. I mainly take old pc people toss as they get a new one and rebuild them with parts on hand to offer to those that I know cant afford a pc. ( never anything top of the line but enough that they can do homework on and such theses days) not everyone can afford to buy a computer for their kids/selves when a single parent.  I work currently at bestbuy ( outlet transferring to a actually store where I hope to end up in geek squad at some point sine with my Cerebral palsy and getting older I am unable to stand long periods of time with out my legs giving out and such. But I push as much as I can for as long as aI am able it beats sitting on my butt with my thumb in my butt ( lol).
