Bumping this. I'll have more to come later.

Just know that its currently 90% finished. I just need to install my 4" UV CC's and manage some cables.

Also I need to figure out what to do with my Boreas since no one is buying... :(

Bumping this again... Not just so that more people see it, but so that they post here and hand me some encouragement.

I'm "_this_" close to selling all of my computer gear (or most of it..) and going for a more "budget" friendly setup. I just can't justify this to myself if I don't play anything besides BF2 these days... I mean, there's only a certain number of times you can play crysis maxed out until you get bored.

The moment you sold it you would regret it I'll throw in my encouragement, but if you are not doing it for yourself you may be doing it for all the wrong reasons!

I admire the skill and patience of the people here who fabricate, modify and just put together their rigs. For most of us, it is a passion that we love to share with others who are bitten by the same bug. And yes, we all love that little nudge, that pat on the back, for doing a great (or even not so great) job, but in the end we are really doing it for our greedy little selves

So, keep at it, and when you are done show it off to us because we all love this geek pr0n!

Thanks.

I figure I'll keep it the way it is, just because selling my stuff would have such low gains compared to what I paid, and even compared to the cost of buying something more "low end".

I might be willing to part with my phase cooler, and my Boreas is already for sale.

God I love that case. I'm ~this~ close to buying the other one in your thread and building up a sweet mATX i7 HTPC build with it.

If the wife will let me We just bought a new house. And new houses apparently mean new furniture. "What was wrong with the OLD stuff?" I said! She countered with "Whats wrong with the OLD htpc?"

Why you selling the Boreas!

Keep at it, you'd regret getting rid of your build the second you do it, I don't even use the full power of the Dual E5504's currently and regret the sale of my E5520;s(I would of regretted not taking the amazing offer offered to me more, but... point remains).

Remember that "project" I told you about? Now that I've got some sort of income, I'm going to start planning for it, you should help me out with it!

I would have said: "Fine, I'll get my new HTPC and you can have a new fridge. They'll cost nearly the same, cause you're getting an internet ready fridge. And that is that."
This may also explain why I'm going through a divorce... Well, not really, but partly.
