I like that attitude too....but my wallet sure doesn't! tongue.gif I'd be happy with a piece like that yea, but I'm also very happy with my current build as is....especially since I've really taken this current rebuild to a whole 'nother level, for me at least!
But yes, OCN and OVERKILL go hand in hand really. Here's my overkill progress biggrin.gif

Ah, I like that color theme you have going. So far it looks great, there's not too much of any one color to kill off the interest. Your design really makes people look around at everything, and that's one of the hardest things to do in a build. Nice work! thumb.gif

Dang straight!

Too much is never enough and more is ALWAYS better.




Just talked to Dwood this morning and my custom pedestal is going to be built up today and he thinks it should be done and some photos put up as well.

I so can't wait to see it.

More to the point, I can't wait to GET IT, so I can marry it (and all the parts I ordered from PPC, SW, and FCPU) to my gunmetal Switch 810.

I actually do have a radiator mount installed on the back on my switch don't tempt me.

The way I look at the pedestal is if you add a pedestal to the case you have a case which has more space compared to any other case on the market.

129+120 = 249
Cosmos - 300
Case Labs (I do find them worth the money) - $500.00

On a serious note, After exchanging couple emails with Dwood I'm thinking if adding or removing PSUs or HDDs is gonna be a pain with the pedestal given how my build is coming up. Presently I'm using the drive bays to hold my HDDs, not a bad solution but not the most perfect solution. The pedestal in my case offers me the best solution.

I know I know. Overkill.net biggrin.gif It's already way overkill on the pockets! I'm totally happy with my build but that pedestal is a major epeen extension and quite frankly I am happy with mine at the moment. biggrin.gif

Lookin great so far moddermike! Interesting pump/res setup you got goin on there. biggrin.gif

lol j/k. As cool as it is I have absolutely no need for it I think my rad-age is way overkill for my setup already. tongue.gif I could easily have 2 more gpu's in my loop.

I liked the Pedestal as well, but I don't think I will get one for a few reasons if you're interested.

I tried fixing it with solder and JB Weld, but I really couldn't get in there good to fix it with the folded metal where the screws cover the radiator in place.

Now that I have a replacement for it, I may cut two slots in the bracket, bend back the tab, and solder it up right with a mini torch.

It'll hold, then with a little tack welding, some sanding, and paint, it should be ALMOST good as new.

Not sure what machine I'll put it in though.

Do you have a log? The more I hear about this pedestal, and people buying it up....the more I want to actually see it in action. I would like to follow your progress. thumb.gif
