haters gonna hate :/[/QUOTE]

not hating seeing as I "qualify" for this stupid thing. Just voicing my opinion that I think it's stupid to have this on a site such as this...where people come here to customize their pc's... whether its performance wise or looks. This club is more suited for StockClock.net. IMO

It was fine when I thought they meant tasteful, clean cases. But this all performance utilitarian and no show or care for looks mentality makes no sense. I don't care what my hard drive looks like, it sits inside my case. My case sits inside my house and is visible, I care what it looks like.

Also if the OP wants this to be a club, then he has to realize it is a community. For this to be a club, membership needs to be community decided, not just by him.

According to the original post, its ANYONE that doesnt this critera:

Quote:
No windows
No LED fans
The only visible LEDs are purely functional (HDD activity, power)
No large areas of mesh without a fan behind them that is approximately the size of the mesh
No external radiators if WC'ing
Absolutely no cold cathode lights
Noise cancelling features are a bonus
No case stickers, graffiti, art, etchings or doodles
No logos apart from those of the case manufacturer, and even they must be tasteful (i.e. not Alienware)
Absolutely no pre-built/mass manufactured computers. You must have a custom rig, even if it doesn't glow in the dark.
So nearly everyone on OCN is a ricer =/

  • No windows - Check
  • No LED fans - Check
  • The only visible LEDs are purely functional (HDD activity, power) Blame my case. (front has 2 eyes and a glowing X as the power button)
  • No large areas of mesh without a fan behind them that is approximately the size of the mesh - But I love mesh without a fan behind it
  • No external radiators if WC'ing - Check
  • Absolutely no cold cathode lights - Check
  • Noise cancelling features are a bonus - Kinda, Got some acusti 7mm at the bottom of my case so dust dont go into my case from the bottom.
  • No case stickers, graffiti, art, etchings or doodles - Check
  • No logos apart from those of the case manufacturer, and even they must be tasteful (i.e. not Alienware) - Thermaltake?
  • Absolutely no pre-built/mass manufactured computers. You must have a custom rig, even if it doesn't glow in the dark. - Check

Ill get a pic when i can.

Last time I checked, "overclock"ing has nothing to do with aesthetics. Just as there are people who like cases with side panels and a million multicolored LEDs, there are people who prefer to have a clean non-distracting case. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Count me in by the way. P180, plain as can be.
