    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    i7 3770K
    8GB Crucial Balistix Tracer G/R
    Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe
    EVGA GTX 670 FTW
    Samsung 830 256GB
    Crucial M4 256GB
    Corsair H60

    Mods:
    Build case from scratch using cardboard and metalwire.
    Treated the cardboard with woodglue by doing so it becomes as though and smooth as sanded wood. After that the case was Airbrushed in gunmetal black with a 'mist' of silver.
    I made a removable motherboard tray as wel as a removable drive tray for the system.

    The CPU is overclocked to 4Ghz, and the graphics card to 1150core/1600mem.

    'the next generation' ;) of modders/computer enthusiast that doens't really know about old star trek series, and the borg end up not appreciating the mod as much as those that do and thats ok.

    Sure it hurts a little when someone calls a project that took over 250 hours to build just 'a square box' but thats how the internet works everybody has their own oppinion and are free to give it.

    Lmao, Really if someone can't see that insane amount of detail and see just a box than you really should not take the comment into account.

    Amazing job 10/10 from me.
