The canvas for this project arrived while I was at work this morning... thumb.gif




Expecting another shipment later today from Newegg which will include a majority of my main components, and another shipment with some other goodies from FrozenCPU within a day or two.

UPDATE: Feels like Christmas all over again redface.gif
