    Got bored and tinkered for 30 mins or so:roll:

    Presenting a mini tech station, if its allowed;)

    Needs an external PSU if ou want to fire the GPU, but I think I can get my tiny 250W PSU in there to get it running.

    You guys are real crazy! ;) sNiPeRbOb's UBERBOX looks pretty cool. In how much time did you build that?

    Yep, I gotta see how I figure it out for my airflow too! I don't have many spare fans so I gotta play it smart.

    Competition is gonna be rude! ;) Maybe you should add a poll, so people can vote which they prefer.

    sNiPeRbOb, that setup is sick. Makes me wish I had a bigger box to work with instead of my crap box. I might have to redo everything tomorrow with a USPS box.

    Now that I think of it, I might even just make a second build. I have a older MSI ATX board around here somewhere.... :D

    I started just after the my first post in this thread, and finished at about 10pm EST with an hour break for dinner somewhere in there haha. Thanks everyone for the kind words, just glad I kept my old Koolance WC gear around for events such as this!
