THE BUILD IS DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SEE BELOW FOR INFORMATION ON DONATING TO ADAM'S FAMILY AND FOR AN OCN GIVEAWAY CONTEST IN HIS HONOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As many of you know on October 13th, 2012 Adam Wilson, known here as Erakith, passed away at the age of 24. Adam was a genuinely good dude. I myself had the honor of knowing him quite well and found there was a hole left in my life where Adam used to be.

Adam was a reviewer for ThinkComputers.org, a fellow enthusiast, a gamer, a techie and newbie water cooler

. More importantly, he was a loving husband and fantastic father of three. He originated in the UK but left home and kin for his love he found here in Michigan.

For me this build has a dual purpose. The first and foremost is to raise money for his family. Once completed the rig will be raffled or auctioned to raise money for them. (If you would like to donate to them, feel free to PM me and I can help with that.) Second though, OCN is where I met Adam. Computers were our initial and continuous connection. This build represents for me one final adventure of our friendship.

None of this would be possible without many great individuals and companies in our industry. I have worked all over, with many people, nowhere have I found so many caring and giving people in one place. It makes me proud to be apart of this community.

I would like to thank the following companies for their donations and support:








KGTUNING

Build list, Updates, and photos to follow shortly!

I would like to thank you personally for following this log, it means so much to me that you do.

Got what we needed thanks to kgtuning!

Now is your chance to support Adam's family through our fundraiser! Follow the link below:

i am subbed. I am more then willing to do any case mods. I'm sure KGTuning is right beside me on that. I'm not trying to be cocky but I like to think we can do pretty much any case mod you can think of. Not to mention a lot of other great builders like MyBadOmen who would love to jump in also. All of us where great friends with Adam. Between all of us anything is possible!

Wow man thanks! I wish I lived closer to Num1son so I could help with fabrication. But Num1son does great work!
