He generally burnt out testing. Mostly his wallet. His reviews were non-sponsored and had to put alot of his own money into doing it. But he mostly expressed interest in getting out more often as well.

As for the base, thanks for the link. Unfortunately for me, it looks like they took the SM8 pedestal down for sale on the site at the moment. mad.gif Maybe they are just super busy, so I'll give it some time.
I hope it doesn't lose its "pop", because what I have been going with the whole time was an all white SM8. doh.gif My wife was actually the one who suggested white over black. She said that not only will it pop, without being overbearing, but that the particular green I have for sleeving/paint/etc flows nicely with white. For the major contrast I want, I have the black parts/sleeving/etc. I think it is going to turn out great, but I may end up ordering spare outside panels with a thought in my head at the moment. I may get a spare panel set shot with a matching green for the exterior, and eliminate as much of the black as possible, with only little bits for some contrast (motherboard, pump, some bits in the sleeving-we shall see, luckily the case I picked has many options for color matching/schemes thumb.gif).

The pedestal isn't for sale right now because it's being redesigned. I should have one when they finish up and will post pics.

Oh. I didn't think I saw any triples, so that's good to know. I won't be buying many right now but probably down the road I'll start replacing pieces. I have a few of the white fill port/pass throughs coming from frozen. I wanted a white T but had to settle for a shining silver from Bitspower.

I've always had a special place in my heart for well done black/green builds. For the sleeving though, try green/grey/black combo. The white seems like it would pop out too much and doesn't match well, imo.

While that would normally be true, I have an all white case coming, so the white would mesh well I think. I plan on trying multiple combinations against the white case to see which looks the best though. One step ahead of ya on the grey, I ordered some at the same time as the rest "just in case". tongue.gif
