A tad bit long...bear with me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br>
So guys, I have this really awsome class at school called Tech Shop that I pretty much own lol! Anyway...the class' focus is on building computers and selling or donating them to the community. Of course, as an overclocker I was first to bring up Overclocking to the teacher, which a sharp and promp lecture was handed to me on how overclocking will harm computer parts and does not improve performance.<br><br>
I then preoceded to teach this noob of a teacher the art of overclocking in technical terms that would make Einstein proud. Not only did I tell him 200 gazzilion reasons why overclocking in no way harms anything if you know what you are doing...but I got him to agree to let me overclock systems if the customer agreed to it.<br><br>
Then came case modding..in which the teacher had...some...experience in. It turns out he bought 5 clear acrylic cases from NWCA (local place) and was going to be building computers for customers. So as a avid case modder my self, I was quick to suggest the sleeving of the power supply. The look that I got.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused"><br><br>
Then came a quickie lecture in sleeing fans and power supplies and I soon got his permission to sleeve a "Gamer Edition 480WATT PSU" <--it SUCKED (17amps on the 12v rail) Anyway...I took it home...did an awsome job sleevin it and brought it back to a anxious teacher.<br><br>
In short..he loved it and wants me to make a video presentation to show the whole class on the projector.<br><br>
Now this is where I need some help. I have the web cam (MS VX1000) and the sleeving and PSU and tools and blabalbal. Questions:<br><br>
1. Should I show my face?<br>
2. Should I edit in MS Movie Maker or Sony Vegas?<br>
3. Any good ideas and stuff?<br>
4. How not to make it boring?<br>
5. bblabla<br><br>
Help...please <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

I forgot the name of the guy.... dead something? I forget. His guide was great. I used it for my sleeving endeavors (deviating from the guide somewhat for my own tweaks of course).

Archer_456 made a kickass guide, but do a video!<br />
<br />
1. No. It's not the focus of the video, is it?<br />
2. MS Movie Maker- I use it a lot for video editing, it works great.<br />
3. You've already done one, you do it!<br />
<br />
It's going to be boring! You think doing that is fun?!??!<br />
<br />
One note- Don't bother with showing how to sleeve <b>every</b> cable- Do one of each type, then move on, so 1 ATX brick, 1 P4 connector, 1 Molex, etc. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> A much shorter video than doing each and every one.

</div>Um... lol... Speaking as a veteran FAQ/Modding Documentary writer...<br />
<br />
I can tell you that if you decide to turn any project into a public documentary you can probably bet on it being a lot longer and a lot less fun that if would've been if you'd kept it to yourself.<br />
<br />
The upsides are that:<br />
1) You can show anyone you want exactly what you did and the kind of effort you put into your projects. Your work is essentially "never" forgotten.<br />
2) You benefit the overclock.net community and really the worldwide modding community by putting it up. I've seen people pondering over parts of my Blue Madness Mod on Brazilian websites: <a href="http://www.babooforum.com.br/idealbb/view.asp?topicID=487443" target="_blank">http://www.babooforum.com.br/idealbb...topicID=487443</a> Who knows? Maybe in 40 years some of my other stuff will have gotten around.<br />
3) A side benefit is that you will get mad reps if you write a good guide, and if you link it in your sig it's like sustained "cash flow" if you will. New members join all of the time, and I get reps on a frequent basis because new people happen upon my FAQs.

Dang it! I was just about to rep you! But I can't! Darn! Anyway..thanks for the info..I was thinking about the size and length, and it can't be too long, maybe max 5-6 minutes. I do need to show the audience how to effectivlely use a molex remover, apply the sleeving and use heatshink tubing. Among other things, i'm going to do this on a standard molex connector, a floppy connector, and the ATX connector. The ATX one will be showing me starting to take the pins out..than at the end sleeving it..then putting them back..then the finished product.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Hold the highest note you can for a long time... Do it... say... a minute or two. Hold the tone "up in your nose"... make it very nasal and focus it "high" up in your nose. Do it in private or you'll feel like an idiot.<br><br><br>
It's an instant trick to temporarily make your voice noticably lower.

I guess dude...and in no way are you a noob dude....I was just rattling my brain when I wrote that. It is very hard to make clear case look clean and sexy at the same time. If I hide the wires behind something, you can still see it from the other side. The best way to do it is to use a mix of UV lights and UV sleeving to make it look "robotesqu". Get my flow.....?<br />
<br />
Anyway..about the LAN, he said some things and I'm sure we will have one but probably like 15 people will show up. Still that's better than nothing and i can't wait to p4wn some noobs lol <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
For sure I will come if they have one. I was thinking CSS 5v5, CS1.6 5v5, BF2142 5v5, and some other games like NFS.<br />
<br />
Anyway.. laters dude.<br />
<br />
Thanks for the suggestions guy <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />
