Brain, I have seen you destroy motherboards in the most insane ways, you are working on Think Take, you have a crazy looking TEC, this arcade and more...

What would you say is the most "insane" computer work you have done... or wrecked.

The case was in pretty bad state when he got it... and it required a lot of filling and patching to fix it all. Still cheaper to fix than buying all the specialty tools and saw blades you need to work with MDF properly.
