This is awesome, I love the phantom design. I'd probably go with the mid-tower version though. It's really interesting to see how easy it was to reverse the case, that's a mod I'd been thinking about. There are almost no computer cases that are sort of designed to go on your left, the windows, side intakes, and such are always on the left of the case, so you'd want it sitting to your right.
And then many desks are built in such a way that the drawers are on your left, so you sit more on the right side of your desk, meaning you can't put the tower on your right side. It's lunacy! It's almost as bad as selling hotdogs in packages of 10 and buns in packages of 8.

I Understand more than most people the need for any kind of fund raising for Cancer Awareness and the development for the cure. Being a Survivor of Acute Lymphatic Leukimia (ALL) myself, without the help of Leukimia Society Of America, and other Non-profit Agencies, my family would have never survived the struggle I had a a child.

 

I do, however, want to bring up the fact that due to lack of funding, these societies do have to make tough decisions to discontinue help once they are sure things will be okay with the person. The problem is, even after the treatments are over, that puts them at EVEN MORE of a risk for the cancer to return. I wish that I could find help with going for checkups since being "cured" (quoted because even though you are concidered cured, it is never completely gone). Alot of people, the greatest struggle with Cancer is not the treatments, and the punishment done to their body during those treatments, it is life AFTER treatments. Most people find the world alot harder, because they have endured so much, they are tired, wore out, aged. I personally tell people, I am a 50 year old trapped in a body that appears to be 28, (my current real age). It's like putting a salad in a Microwave, the lettuce ages exponetially quicker. The biggest struggle I have found is not too many people realise just how hard it is for a Cancer surviver to do the things that everyone takes for granted every day.

 

Hope this does help raise awareness, and encorages people to proactively help with the research and development for the cure. There are little things people can do to help, that do not require any money at all. I can't remember the names of these, but you can donate your Idle computer process to the development and research for the cure. I ask that before you do, research to make sure the society is legit, because (even though I hate it) there are fraudulent ones out there.

As I have mentioned before, this is the perfect community to bring this build to. Everyone at OCN is aware of the bigger picture to why we fold. Yeah it's fun to compete with teams, and to have the most points-per-day, but we do it for a reason: to find a cure.

I hope everyone here will take this build to heart.

That was part of my goal to build a Future-proof, overpowered computer; So that I could give a little back to the scientists and researchers that helped keep me alive. I'm also going to College to be IT, because I know what researchers need the most are better Computing technology so that 1) they can get quicker results, and 2) Communicate directly with other doctors to compare notes. It was communicating back and forth between doctors that pulled me out of serious problems. (ALL) is a leukimia that is more common with children under the age of 9, most people that are older and diagnosed do not survive the extreme regiment of Chemotherapy for this type of Leukimia. This is usually due to the development of antibodies around the age of 9, that would normally fight the treatment. I was 12 when diagnosed.

 

If you don't mind, I would like to thank everyone at the East Carolina University Hemotology/Oncology Clinic (Now Brody School of Medicine) and the Doctors of Pitt County Memorial Hospital (now Vidant Medical Center) for all the help and support they gave to me as I struggled to fight my internal battle with Leukimia.

I think everyone should share how cancer affects their lives:

I'll start

I'm currently studying Biotechnology. I would love to continue my research in genetics and learn what I can do to better the lives of others. I am currently working on an internship with the City of Hope here in California. I want to work directly in cancer research. Cancer effects my grandmother who is a three time cancer survivor, as well as my girlfriend's grandmother who is currently going through treatment for lung cancer. This sort of thing sickens me because sometimes we can't do anything. I want to do something about that one day.

My inspiration level has gone sky high with all the post's I've read today. I want to make this the best build I've done, and actually documented, so it can continue inspiring even after it's done. Thanks everybody thumb.gif



Got my side panel designed, and ready to cut. I may get it cut out tomorrow, had some very great things come up tonight biggrin.gif and I needed to get those taken care of first. See you all tomorrow smile.gif

Kaged, you and I have already spoken. I did find that SSD, just need to verify it is working, and its yours. As well as the 6950 if you so choose to use it.


Cannot wait to see where this goes.

Derek you're awesome as always!

I think that having a direct donation link technically does break the TOS. However in this case I'm thinking the mods might allow it.

And derek that is really cool that you would be willing to donate those parts. Buut shouldn't this build have nothing but the newest high end parts? I would think that Kaged would able to get almost all (if not all) of the money for the parts donated from here. Also have you thought of contacting other manufacturers? Intel, EVGA, OCZ, etc. would probably be highly interested in this. I mean you already have NZXT and physical progress to show it's for real. Just a thought.

Also Kaged what sort of time constraints are you under for getting this build done?
