I love to see mods on lower cost products. It's kind of what old school overclocking used to be all about. Buy on the cheap and overclock to more expensive levels. Good job.

^^^This. Plus, I've always liked the Core 1000. It was on my buy list for a budget build (cancelled)
a while back. Clean & simple, with all the bare necessities one needs IMO.

Also, nice job on the cutting work. Clean and round for the fans, nice and straight for the window
(as far as my eyes can tell wink.gif ). And I like how cleanly the window is mounted.

I appreciate it when a mod is kept simple and understated, with a solid concept and well executed.
+Rep for that. thumb.gif

Thanks! Now that it's complete, I realized that I honestly can't be bothered gaming on it. Not sure why. Perhaps I've hit that point. It's just sitting on my desk next to me shut off.

Haha, I know that feeling. I haven't gamed on my PC for quite a few years, ever since I first switched to Linux. I just couldn't
be bothered to dual-boot with Windows, and getting games to run on Linux with Wine etc. is just too much of a hassle for
me to bother with it. Haven't touched my PS3 in a year either (yes, I have a PS3, and Metal Gear Solid 4 alone was worth it,
so I won't apologize for that biggrin.gif ).

How about using the rig for Fondling Folding @ Home or BOINC? It's what I do with my computing power, although your
electricity bill might grow quite a bit. wink.gif

Alternatively, sell it, buy new parts and build another one. For some people building PCs is far more interesting than using
them, nothing wrong with that.
