Keep at it, I'm sure someday you'll get there. This mindset is a big step in that direction. I know I had 5 projects under my belt before I even tried talking to any potential sponsors, and even then only asked for 1 thing from any of them. It's a business relationship, and it's more than just free gear. You're essentially charging them the price of what they send you to advertise for them... not everyone seems to get that right away, so you're off to a head start thumb.gif

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 biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif
Good modders will appreciate a mod with or with out shiny hardware... I've recycled my hardware a few times, just moving it from one mod to the next lol

Yeah that's true. I already know I'm gonna feel a bit of emptiness after I finish my build, so I can definitely see that happening. I definitely caught the modding bug.

 

To put things in a timeline perspective....

Around Haswell launch I decided I could use a new PC and wanted it to be portable. I was trying to decide between mitx & matx when I saw Brian White's "Green Machine" XB build youtube video's and build logs. That immediately sold me on the XB and made me wanna buy a Dremel.

 

After I bought my XB & Dremel I was waiting for the M6F to be released and started and completed my first and only mod I had planned

 

While I was waiting on the M6F I changed my mind and decided to wait for IB-E & spent wayyyyyyyyyy too much time reading build logs on OCN. Now my apartment has more tools than carpet space and I feel like I'm destined to be poor and removing metal splinters from my hands for the rest of my life =\

 

Damn You OCN!!!!

/me shakes fist at the sky

 

Lol, nah it's not that serious. I definitely hold OCN, TheModZoo, & Bit-Tech partially responsible for my current financial instability tho :mad:

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 biggrin.gif



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)














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

TY for the pics. lookin good. don't worry about getting done and not having anything to mod. if you are anything like most of us that mod( I just attempt mods and fix my goof up's after), you will either stare at your rig thinking "what can I do now " *cough - wermad- cough* and change it as you own it, or start another for a friend or family member or even a second computer just for the "H" of it. every time I maintenance the loop or add a new component, I have a new task to work on with the case itself. it's a great hobby (if you can afford it) to keeps me busy so i don't have to go insane from talking to the wife for extended amounts of time. she is great about leaving me alone when I am swearing curse words at my case ( and cats as they like to carry static electricity and sniff my computer stuff) because I didn't think thing through enough ( I blame that part on my vaporizer) which is still my cases fault tongue.gif

Lol, yeah @wermad should've definitely been on that list of things partially responsible for my poverty :D

 

And yeah, the only reason I had my chassis with me this week (while babysitting my nephew with my mother), was so I could stare at it and think "what can I do to change this". Lolll

 

It does make me sad thinking of having nothing left to mod, but I guess I could always ruin all my household appliances while I'm saving up for another build or waiting for some1 to ask me to build for them. :p

 

In the meantime...

looks like that babysitting check cashed. now its time for you to sit by the front door until the package arrives. make sure to ware a colostomy bag so you don't have to leave the door until the stuff arrives or you might not to be around to sign for it. it's the worst when I miss a delivery and know it is near me, but I can't have it until tomorrows delivery. tongue.gif

LOLLLLLL. I really need to stop using the term "babysitting".

 

I actually prefer having to sign for it. I live in a building with 4 apartments and 2 storefronts. USPS just rings my buzzer and leaves my stuff on the pavement. I like that UPS & FedEx actually wait for me so my stuff doesn't get jacked =P

 

I stalk my tracking numbers anyway, so I'm waiting for them every time. One time I missed my GT AP-00 delivery cuz I had a doctors appointment at the same time. I was only gone for like a half hour so I knew he was still in the area. I tracked the truck down a few blocks away and got my package from him :D

LMAO. for some reason all I can picture is you running down the street chasing the UPS guy yelling "STOP" like I used to chase the ice cream man for three blocks screaming "ice cream!!!". I know he would see me but keep driving just to see me run and scream.
