So I've been spending the last few days at my moms house, helping babysit my nephew while his parents are on vacation. I'll be back at my apt on Monday. I've finally recouped enough financially to order more main components for my build. I'll be ordering my 4930k, first 290x, RIVE BE EK Block, AC Kryographics 290x Block & a 32GB Ram Kit before Monday. So i'll be able to actually turn on my PC next week.......FINALLY!!!! :D

 

Also, as far as acrylic and modding, I THINK I worked out how I'm gonna pull the rest of my build together. This past week or two while I've been brainstorming and reading build logs I've come up with a few good ideas. I'm not gonna talk about that anymore tho cuz I've already gone back and forth too many times in here. Next talk will be with PiCS!!!!!

 

Anyway, i'll most likely post some screenshots after I place my orders like I usually do. Then next week when I get back to my apartment, and receive my deliveries from Newegg and/or Amazon, FCPU or PPC and/or Aquacomputer, and Tap Plastics; especially Tap Plastics, i'll post some pics to explain what I'm planning.

 

Have a good weekend everybody. Apologies for all the stalling while I've been brainstorming what to do next....

How much does babysitting pay? I think I need to try that so I can also get me some goodies. biggrin.gif

Kidding aside, I'm still looking forward on how this build turns out. PICTURES SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. thumb.gif

Thanx brotha. I definitely agree. That's why I haven't said a whole lot in my build log lately except to get feedback on a few ideas. I've been trying to think it through as much as possible

I'm workin on my cart at Tap Plastics right now. As soon as my order comes in i'll post some pics trying to explain what I have in mind. I promise i'll take a lot of pics next week. I'm ordering a Dremel Trio and Dremel Moto-Saw along with my Lighting/Backdrop setup on Amazon today too. So that should help me out with my acrylic work and taking better pics :D

Lol, I'm too old and the wrong gender to get paid for babysitting :D

I just like to help out with my nephew. I don't have any kids of my own, so I try to spend quality time whenever I can

 

Agreed about pics speak louder than words. That's why I'm not gonna explain about what I'm planning with acrylic til it gets delivered. Especially cuz I've changed my mind so many times :p

 

I appreciate everybody bearing with me. This is my first casemod, and it's already gone pretty far past what I was originally planning. Don't know why I keep needing for it to be better, but I'm learning absolutely everything as I go along.

It occurred to me that you mighta been askin for pics of what it looks like now. I only brought my chassis with me to my moms this week so I can look at it while brainstorming. So it's a tiny bit dusty and there's nothing in it. Also didn't bring my tripod or camera, so I just took a few pics with my moms camera and tried to fix em up a little in Lightroom. The lack of tripod shows alot in a cpl of the pics.

 

Anyway, nothing I haven't showed already. Just filling in the time til I get all my stuff next week :D

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyway, kinda pointless to take pics with the top & side panels attached since my current plans has them becoming scrap metal :p

That certainly looks fantastic for a first mod! Word of advice, don't use all your ideas in one mod, or you'll lose the excuse to keep modding! biggrin.gif

Thanx brotha. Definitely appreciate the compliment!!!

 

I still have a lonnnnnnnng way to go before I can feel happy with it. That thought about not using every idea I can think of has definitely occurred to me, especially since the XB's kinda small and I really don't wanna make it look extremely cramped when I'm done with it (main reason that I'm going with white for my main color). Unfortunately, I'm not sure that i'll be able to afford another build for a long time LOLLL

 

Modding is becoming more and more fun for me, but also more and more expensive =\

 

Someday maybe i'll have skills enough to attract sponsorship, but at this point I feel like it would be a bit ambitious and arrogant for me to consider that an option...

 

If I have another build log in the near future after I finish this one, it'll likely be an empty chassis with no hardware and (For Sale) listed in the title :D :D
