My brother David @djpimpdave loves Ohio State Buckeyes and pretending to be a Radio DJ. He just recently, September 2nd, turned 27 years old but his mind is 14 years old. He suffered two separate traumatic brain injuries around the age of 2. I have been taking care of him for the past 7 years.

Notes:
This PC was built for gaming and does just that completely fine for 1080p
He loves playing Grand Theft Auto, Euro Truck Simulator and Farming Simulator but does play other games as well.

A lot of PC parts were donated by @torn_tv and @westickitout on Twitter and the #AMDRTP (AMD Red Team Plus) members, some I have won during a VLan, few I have purchased.

It was a tight fit to build in, especially since there is no room for cable management. I know the EVO doesn't need 2 fans but I added one anyways. I added the Red LED Corsair fans to give it color because he loves how it does that. Lots of fans for such a small case, hopefully enough air flow to help it all stay cool.

Something different, with older hardware, looking forward to it.

Thank You.

It will take some time with it being a side project and all but I hope that it doesn't disappoint in the end, even with it being older. It's not all going to be decked out and I'm not going to spend months or go all extreme but it will look okay I guess in my mind at least.

No, not really, I trashed the case because the PSU that I bought was too big and there was no real way to make it work. I am looking into other cases though and will update November when I decide or find another that I like to do with. Still going to be OSU, might get some more helmet stickers.

Plus I bought a stock heatsink but for some reason it just isn't snapping in correctly, so will have to look into getting another one or a different one.

Thanks for the interest

I like the new case.

I'd change the feet and put a vandal switch for power instead of the one on there.

Other than that, it looks good.
