Yes thats right! Another lutro0 mod. But dont panic, the Aspros will be finished before I start this one. I am currently working on writing up this thread . I will inform you of when I add sponsors and when those parts come in!
_.-( Sponsors )-._
A special thanks goes out to the following sponsors for making the project possible!
Please continue to watch as more sponsors are in the works and being added.
_.-( Introduction )-._
As many of you know my name is Lutro0, most know me for my sleeving guides (http://www.youtube.com/user/lutro0) and for running Lutro0 Customs. (https://www.facebook.com/Lutro0Customs).
My mentality has always been to help as many people with sleeving and modding as I can because I learned everything I know about modding because people took the time to create detailed logs of their work. I run my logs all the same, they are meant to be learning materials for upcoming modders. I try to share every single bit of info I can and I will always answer your questions when I see them.
I have never done a sponsored mod before but I have done 2 mods,
The Katharos - http://www.overclock.net/t/765778/project-katharos-pure-nzxt-beta-evo-mod-april-2011-motm-winner
The Aspros - http://www.overclock.net/t/1024237/project-aspros-white-corsair-600t-white-build-2-new-pics-18-12
I am very honored to call OCN my home forum and I spend allot of my time donating my time in the cable and sleeving sub forums with my guides and FAQ. As well as answering as many questions as I can. I am also a team captain for the team comp for folding@home on OCN. I have been hugely involved in folding for a while now and will continue to be as long as I have a computer.
All in all, I do my best with what I have and I try my best to leave no detail unnoticed no matter how small it is. Nils from MDPC whom which I consider a close friend, has drilled the mentality of "no compromise" into my head and that bleeds into my work and ethics. It simply means that I promise to not compromise on the smallest detail - if it is not to my standards it gets redone.
_.-( Sponsors )-._
When I set out to get sponsors I really didnt expect the huge backing that I got as if was my first time seeking sponsors and making the contacts. NZXT was the first to fall in as they have been trying to do a mod with me for a long time now, but I didnt feel the time was right in my life to start one. I also wanted to have a great idea, something that would be worthy of sponsorship.
The rest of the sponsors where all a surprise, all of them are noteworthy but a few that really stuck out to me was MNPCTech, Skitzba1, and Performance-PCs.
Mnpctech namely Bill Owen was one of the first modders that I learned from so he has always held a special place in my "modders heart" I was enthusiastic when he said yes to sponsoring me, as I have always wanted to work with him on a project. Even more so we worked it out so that I could be a part of one of his mods as well. I am very much looking forward to that.
Performance-PCs has in a sense been a rival of sorts as we both sell sleeved goods and I have alway had a very professional relationship with them. Most of my sleeving parts are bought from them as it is convenient and they will always make it right if a mistake happens. Hank was leary at first about sponsoring me but after discussing the topic for a while we both realized we are on the same level with our goals and a awesome gesture of sponsorship came out of it.
Skitzba1 has not always been around in my life, but once we sat down and talked one day it was clear he was going to a good friend. Many of you know his giving heart as he wants to help everyone he possible can with anything he possibly can. When he offered to help me with the mod I was very thankful as I know he is starting out his business again and just got over a move. However he still blessed me with a sponsorship for the motherboard.
My philosophy on sponsorship is that the parts that are given need to be showcased and the sponsors need to see that their parts are very much appreciated. So I will be making unboxing videos and a "modders rundown" on all of the parts that I have gotten. It is only fair that these gracious corporations get the shout out that they deserve as they have blessed me with these fine parts.
_.-( Project Name )-._
Xýlo kai chalkó simply means "wood and copper" in greek. Those that have followed my mods know my deep love for the Greek language. I am a young adult pastor and I study and dig deep into the Bible often. I have always loved how one simple word in greek can have a deep and profound meaning when translated into the english language. I have chose these exact words as they will be directly correlating as to what this mod will be all about.
