*** UPDATE TIME ***
Firstly, I apologise. I've been pretty ill recently (major case of the skitz) and then I've been stuck in work until late etc. Was in London last weekend so absolutely no work done then. However! I do have pics to share and 2x orders have been made which should arrive in time for the weekend! wink.gif

So let me start with a tastey curry...

a03cfc172870802.jpg

The power food that my mister feeds me to keep me going and to remind me that diets aren't all that bad when you're sensible about it! (Yes, still dieting for my wedding dress... about 5Kg still to go!)

Then it was time for packages! ...of which www.scan.co.uk deserve a slap for this one. Why?

163d5d172870807.jpg

Nice little package yes?

bd7c89172870810.jpg

It's very well wrapped?

50d01c172870813.jpg

Remove the bubble wrap and... wha!?

d2372e172870819.jpg

is that a...?

33047c172870830.jpg

Yes! That's right! All that wrapping and a £7.99 next day delivery charge from www.scan.co.uk for 1 tiny frickin barb!!! I was meant to have grommets but they were out of stock (or couldn't find the stock) so didn't ship it next day... instead it came the day after and instead of charging £3.99 I was left still charged with £7.99 and actually - thinking about it - I think I'm still due the refund!

Annoyed at this waste I turned to another annoyance... the craptacular phobya rubber shrouds and grommets... these will be the bane of my life for some time. Biggest waste of money and lack of quality control I've ever seen but have to make do with...

cca44f172870840.jpg

*grumbles* and of course I always end up getting my hands stuck together...


A new day... another shop... more goodies!!! Nothing like new shinies to cheer you up! biggrin.gif

e61e89172870978.jpg

Some primer, some paint, some dust sheets, some white spirit, some more glue and another £1 scraper!

Another scraper Bex!?

Yes... I have much more to scrape off! But this time I'll be armed with white spirit!

4edca3172871005.jpg
Now at first, I tried a few different ways and the stuff still didn't want to come off...

So then I let it soak for a while whilst letting it seep in the nooks and crannies!

45d8a2172871024.jpg
Ah hah!

7b3ea5172871034.jpg
Now the horrible stuff practically peels off! biggrin.gif

f05efe172871057.jpg
Happy days!!!



So the next day I decided to get my old friend "Mister Drill" out.. This is all GarethS's fault that I ever got into de-riveting cases! DAMN YOU MAN!!!

d6282c172870878.jpg
I present to you "Mister Drill"

16cc03172870891.jpg
SAFETY FIRST CHILDREN! Hair tied back, goggles on and a handy workshirt... Yes I've chosen a Gigabyte one! :rofl:

d795e0172870904.jpg
Off with the wheels!

0216e1172870910.jpg
Buh-bai! biggrin.gif

ecb5bc172870925.jpg
And to bits with the case!!!

...until

b68d93172870939.jpg
NOOOOO! Broke ma drill bit :cry:

A quick hunt around and I've found a spare! Huzzah!!!

476b8e172870951.jpg
...then she was in pieces!


Right! Hopefully my deliveries arrive tomorrow, then I can do some more work and provide you all with some more updates! Sorry again for the time taken to rehost my pics and make a post so you know I'm still alive!

Oh - and just because I took so long - I'd like to post an extra feature...

The Bex-in-a-Box!
I build PC's for my mates quite often..l all the parts usually come from www.scan.co.uk and on this occasion we had a single box for all the components and case! My fiance and I both looked at each other and were convinced I could have some fun with this box..

407495_10150606045027220_558627219_8720545_2024023481_n.jpg
A special delivery from Scan Computers International. What could be inside?

393970_10150606045092220_558627219_8720546_375875621_n.jpg
It appears it's contents wants out! But Scan Computers International have made sure the box has been well sealed up

403060_10150606045182220_558627219_8720548_1806223591_n.jpg
Peek-a-boo! I see you!!!

395833_10150606045282220_558627219_8720549_869575408_n.jpg
OH HERRO!!! What on earth has Scan Computers International shipped!? It's a BEX-IN-A-BOX!?

430337_10150606045372220_558627219_8720551_843104733_n.jpg
The goods from Scan Computers International emerge safe and sound!

423352_10150606045492220_558627219_8720553_446934020_n.jpg
Scan Computers International always pack their boxes with lots of padding to protect their goods! =D

417186_10150606045642220_558627219_8720554_212782613_n.jpg
Ok... I should probably get out and build the PC now... Thanks Scan Computers International for providing me with some fun

Cause whilst www.scan.co.uk did muck up my order, it's the first order they've mucked up for me out of all the years that I've been dealing with them. And clearly they know I play with my packaging XD

Had a day off to go get my hair done and try and get an entry in for the asus uk oc masters.

Achieved 5.4Ghz on air tonight (63% OC) so I could enter the Asus UK masters tournament. It won't be enough to be in the top 12 I don't think but it's worth a shot. If it stops snowing tomorrow I'll maybe setup a table and try and do some runs outside. I should have done it on Friday when it got down to ~-8c

UPDATE TIME!!!
It's about time I posted something but imagebam are properly peeving me off!!! So I've got some new images to share... and will be looking at doing my own hosting (I've got some hosting equipment and public IP range at home that I can use if I can be bothered to set it up).

I had some packages arrive at work biggrin.gif

th_IMAG0176.jpg
Oooo a nice little package from ChilledPC...

th_IMAG0173.jpg
And a box from Specialtech!!!

The box from Specialtech though was some what chilly?

th_IMAG0174.jpg
A quick look inside to find some awesome goodies!!!

...and some frozen liquid *face palm*

A quick call the guys at Specialtech who check with Mick @ Mayhems and confirmation that the fluid should be ok to use once it defrosts but if there's any issues with it or I'm unhappy to do so to send it back for a replacement. Awesome services! biggrin.gif

What about the other package Bex!?

Patience children! I'll get to that in a moment!

Once I got home (which was late) we decided to have a delicious kebab XD

th_IMAG0177.jpg
Om nom nom! Castle Special Kebab! (all the mixed meats)

So lets open that other package eh?

th_IMAG0178.jpg
Some el-neato braid and heat shrink! (and some more screws)

th_IMAG0180.jpg
The guys at ChilledPC even threw in some samples of the other colours I queried! CHEERS GUYS! biggrin.gif

th_IMAG0181.jpg
Got my (now defrosted) fluid and fan controller out the box

th_IMAG0182.jpg
As you can see the fan controller is an official sealed Lamptron branded controller - NOT the fake GVANS brand that has been going around. I know some people were remarking at Specialtech's ultra low price of the controller but it's the real deal (and a real BARGAIN!!!)

th_IMAG0183.jpg
Not quite the Koolance blocks I wanted but I need to save some pennies for the new house smile.gif

th_IMAG0185.jpg
And my partner Mike double checking Steve's counting skills, making sure I have all 160 rubber washers XD
