(scratch build) Chemical Plant - Page 6

post #51 of 69
Thread Starter 
Thanks. Really do appreciate the support. Nobody in my world likes computers so you people here are all I have and I am grateful to have you. I usually do not do build logs as I do not feel I am up to level as most here but I wanted to give something back to the community that I have enjoyed for so long. I was a lurker for many years before I decided to join. I hope that I have contributed with this log. I try to help others on here but most get answered before I can chime in but I try.

Trying to get it set up now. I am in much better spirits today. It usually takes a lot to get me down but this issue was a punch to the soft spot.

Any tips on bleeping the system are welcome

Put the entire system back together and still posted. Great news. The dream is still alive!

I want to thank all of those who not only were helpful but gave me words of encouragement not to give up. I am truly grateful for the support because my spirit was broken for awhile.

A few more things to do and then I hope it is ready for its final photoshoot. At least I am still able to go forward. Thanks again for the support everyone.

Okay time for the finale. Before I get start I want to remind everyone that there is a ssd buried in the back left that you never see but I worked really hard on it.

Alright on with the show. Keep in mind that I am not a photographer but I tried my best to give you all a good look at what I created.

Continued final pics


accidentally knocked the valve back on the one above and did not notice till after the pic. Fixed it in the next pic. It swivels so its fine. Just messed up the pic. Like all the women in my life she just can not get it all together. Oh well, I still love her.

Continued final pics

And now I take my lady for a night out on the town





Well there it is. My dream computer completed. Or should I say completed for now.

I would like to thank all the people that helped me make this a reality not just those here but in my personal life as well. Without all of your help I could not have made it happen.

I know this kind of build is not for everyone but it is my type of computer so it must be others as well. I have tried hard on this my first build log to give back to the community and I hope I have done that.There are many things I would do differently in hindsight but I am proud of what my dream manifested into. It was a very long road to get here. So to anyone seeing this and thinking one day I want to build my dream machine, do not give up. Stay the course and if you want it bad enough you can make it happen. I build this pc with limited tools and what I did use special tools for could have been done other ways(screws instead of welding or paint instead of powder coat). In fact I painted far more than I powder coated. I cut the grill with a drill,file and wire saw. So keep at it and with help from good people you will get there. If I did you can.

Enough rambling. Thanks again to all that helped and keep on creating.
