As for graphics on the case... it's be so cool to see the MKMod "Mad Scientist"
How fitting:

... seeing it makes me sort of sad :(
That would be beautiful.
Thinking about it, I've got a "sticker maker" here. If someone could print off that pic, in various sizes, on decent photo paper, I could make it into a case sticker.
I'll use the best one, depending on resolution, etc. I'll give a few versions to NdMk2010 so he can apply which one he thinks is best...
Maybe multiple stickers on different parts of the case, and/or maybe a bit of photoshop art on the pic/s, if that would be respectable?

Can anyone do that?

If it's going on a black case, someone needs to get clever with the outlines of the black portions of the image (like adding a thin white border).

Update on PM's guys, Sasqui has kindly offered to donate a MB though I didn't realise he was in the US and he didn't realise this build was being done from the UK, the shipping is going to be $46 so are there any UK members who have a spare 775 MB to donate? alternatively I have offered to help Sasqui with the shipping if anyone else would also like to contribute towards shipping if they don't have any components to donate this would be much appreciatted as it is a good thing he is doing just donating the board let alone shipping it here :toast:

Also need a 775 cooler for the Q6600 which Scaminatrix has very genorously donated :eek: :toast: Freedomeclipse did offer one though I don't think he has the 775 bracket and it's cooling a 939 proc so he would also need a stock replacement at the least, again a very awesome gesture none the less :toast:

If anyone has any DDR2 they could donate give me a shout, I possibly have some from gumpty though it's not clear if he has the right type or what capacity he has so any suggestions would be great, gumpty is also very kindly donating a 500w OCZ PSU :rockout:

So all in all confirmed and currently winging there way to me are:

Coolermaster Elite 430 from me
Q6600 From Scam
8400GS and 300GB HDD from KieX
A DVD-RW from BO$$
A PSU from gumpty

Have a close to new wireless Logitech MX 600
If your offer still stands we will take it :) is posting to the UK OK? as you don't have your location showing, lemme know and I will PM you with my details for shipping.

Great effort guys, main 2 concerns are the RAM and either a UK member with a 775 board or some generous ppz to help with the shipping. :toast:

Scam your idea of transfers/stickers is great, lemme know if you can get them sorted and if there's anything I can do to help!!

I'm going to send the board... won't be till the weekend or early next week. Meanwhile, if someone else steps up with a board close by, then it's all good!

:toast:

Edit: I think I have 2GB of DDR2-800 in the board right now. Will check tonight.

You're a star mate :toast:, I know you have said you will ship it regardless though if anyone who wanted to help with the rig though has no components to donate am sure $5 here and there towards the shipping for Sasqui would be a very nice gesture :D

I'm happy to PayPal $10 to Sasqui. :toast: Gimme the details and I'll do it tonight.

EDIT

Thinking about it, $46 is around £30. Wouldn't it be better to buy a brand new board here in the UK? mATX's are quite cheap nowadays.

I was wondering that. However, the board I have actually came from Fitseries, I paid $100 for it and it's a OC'ing beast :) I'm just thinking since it's originally came from a TPU member, how fitting to make it part of the tribute.

You guys are great, but I really don't want donations... just for the record. I was surprised at the shipping, but I can absorb that!

Well you can get the basicist of 775 boards for around £35 w/shipping, the board Sasqui is donating is a X38 Maximus Formula with a Rampage BIOS so even at £30 shipping it is going to be hella better than the cheapo MSI/Biostar boards that you can get for "around" that price, and if we can get some help for the shipping then it's a much better deal than any of the budget boards you can get new for upto £50

why is shipping so bad from manchester, can't you just deliver it by car
Exactly what I thought, though it's Manchester NH - US.

BTW I will also donate $10 to Sasqui for shipping so thats $20 so far, any other takers?

Sasqui email me your paypal addy and I will gift it through PP come Thursday :toast:

Edit just seen your post about the donations, sorry man the offer is there anyway lemme know as it's a nice thing your doing shipping it all that way

Thanks for the info, guys. A used board like that is certainly a better option than a new cheapie.

And Sasqui - like Nd, the PayPal offer remains open. What a great donation you're making. :) :respect:
