I could say the same to you,but I will be more considerate.
Seriously, I dislike seeing wires in a computer, it's just how I personally like things, clean without any visible wiring at all. And the powdercoat is way too rough, it wasn't heated high enough, probably for fear of melting out the filler which it did anyways. I guess I am a bit more demanding in a build than some, live and let live.
Cheers!

the powder coat is supposed to have orange peel. It hides surface imperfections. Link to your flawless super computer?

Here is a flawless supercomputer for you.



If you think that I will take a photo of one of my builds so you can pick nits with it to exact your 'revenge', you are mistaken.
I understand that you are taking this personally and it is not personal at all, just the way I feel about that particular build. Just accept that not everyone will like every build and go on from there.
Have a great day and never stop improving.

So how does anything get power if you there are no visible wires? Windowless side panel? That would defeat the purpose of building an aesthetically pleasing rig.

I too would like to see your build if that's how you see things.

And I really hope you joined OCN for a reason other than to tell lowfat that you don't like his build.

.

Wires, silly, but the key to aesthetics in my view is not leaving them visible, and I like cases with windows to show off that clean sleek wireless look.
It's probably more work than most will ever do for a build but the end result is quite worth it IMO. I also do my own custom lighting rather than buy ready made junk from manufacturers, Most folks won't bother doing the things I do, but for me it's fun and challenging.

You seriously need to post some pictures of your build...it would obviously win Mod of the Month if it's as perfect and clean as you say it is...in fact, it would probably be the cleanest build on OCN...ever...so if your hesitant to post because you are scared of scrutiny, then why scrutinize? Honestly, my bet is this is all a sad attempt at trolling, in which I case, I would hope you learn to find your "excitement" elsewhere, OCN doesn't take kindly to trolls...

this thread is not the place to discuss this - the comments were made on what alpha thinks of lowfat's build and everyone is entitled to their own opinion

i like the cable management lowfat was able to achieve and the powder coating looks better than any paint job i've created

if alpha wants to show off his work, he will - in his own thread

otherwise lets all move along and not disrupt this build log any more than it already has been

Well. Let's not get too personal. Maybe some of Alpha One criticism can be used to perfect the build even more.

This build is already so damn nice than I guess there is no reason to not push it to the limits of perfectionism.

Let's be constructive.

Haven't done anything w/ the case for a few days as work and headlight modding has got in the way. But the sun and clouds cooperated for some better pictures. Still unedited. Life without a desktop kind of sucks.
