what's wrong with you?

you've took photos from million dollar pc.
i've seen this already.
now you're saying you've just built this pc a while ago?!
COME ON!!!!! WAKE UP DUDE!!! YOU'RE DREAMING BIG TIME!!!!
i've just registered so i can reply your message. dude, can't you just type your message after you look for in the website? if you look closely and carefully, in million-dollar-pc.com, when you enter the gallery of the same rig you can read at the top who made it and then you can talk.

great work sniipe i would really love to be able to do something as neat and tasteful as you. you got a ten from me

10/!0

This is PRO. This is what a 10 should be. Not just some lamerz that slaps high end stuff on the PC and state that it is the golden god.

Love the routing. Very imaginative.

Also, the way you took photo on fresh refill (you can still see bubbles bleeding from the Blue res) is a nice touch. Gives a kinda cool look to it.

This is PRO.

11/10 from me bro, in the inside view of it feels like a background scenario while im playing quake 4 LOL(futuristic & high tech), if this set-up is being noticed already on some websites meaning no questions asked and no need for rating it, your set-up is famous bro cheers on that,

hope you dont get offended bro, now its time to prove that its yours bro, even me ived noticed this on million dollar PC, just a simple hand written paper with your name on it, that would flush out our doubts, this is one of the set-up i liked the most on that website.

Guys thank you for the wonderful comments! I respect your opinions and thoughts :D

I just want to say that yes it is actually my computer, and thankyou to FAXA for spotting that pic and bringing it up here - you can ask one of the hundreds of people who saw both PermaFrost and Flow at the LAN this weekend if your still doubting :laugh:

You did a very nice job at making a relatively clean build. Im not a big fan of the rats nest of coolant tubes, but everything else looks excellent.

Lighting and photography are excellent. I like your choice of components as well -- they look good together.

Otherwise, it looks like just another computer to me. :S

thanks :) its all about the details on the inside mate ;) the perfectly sleeved wires, interesting tube routing mixing the blue and green, stealth plating the top area and front bays

honestly - IMO it really does look too plain to me now looking back on it, I didnt do quite as much modding as I would have liked, but life goes on and I make new builds - thats why I went so far to mod every aspect of my most recent project Flow in the v2110, every build I am faced with new things to build on and that is half the fun :D
