    Now that you mention it, who builds their computer on a kitchen counter? That's where you cook food, not computers. Didn't your mother teach you better? :D

    This! :)

    on the contrary. he/she it might be female. in which case building PC's in the KITCHEN?! seems legit.

    How do you enjoy that trackball? I'm sure it's pretty awesome for FPS gaming. Snap shooting must be pretty incredible.

    Oh yeah, very nice system by the way. I wish I had the resources to build something that extremely awesome!

    Ok Mr. Funky - Of course it would be impossible to incorporate a Boreas inside a SG02. Future plans are to install all on a furniture grade wooden base with a smoked acrylic cover at the rear of the pc to hide your "funkiness". ;)

    Also I am debating airbrushing the case with COD themes. :)

    Aah, looking funky means looking good this side of the pond :) still looks good though, I like the industrial look of the Boreas.

    I like it, but with a name like that, I always think of CM HAF cases, I've always reffered to them as the Humvee of cases. Should maybe sand it down and paint it with a crinkle rough flat black paint that has some texture. The TEC is sweet, I haven't ever looked into them because price, so I'm assuming thats very painful on the wallet.

    What I would really like to do is have someone airbrush some COD scenes/images all over the case. :)

    I assume you are talking about that blue patch under the water block. No, that is some painter's tape sealed with "Dragon Skin" to preclude any damage from condensation if it arises.
