My System Specs

Default The MOBO Art Project

So I got my safety scissors and my glue sticks out and started sorting my stuff for arts and crafts.

I currently have 12 motherboards for the projects and need 98 more to get the project to completion... yah you heard that right 98 more.

Tonight I might start cutting some to fit around "things"

This project will involve something completely different for my youtube channel, Dog adoption videos and for my repair guides.

All boards donated or sold to me will get you a thank you on my site and in my credits at the first few videos and maybe all of them.

Right now the list of people who donated are:

Eldonko:Shat load of boards and dead gear to add some flare to the project
ClHades hey if its borked dont fix it make it art
ZZLee some boards from cross country one with a little mold but nothing alcohol wont fix.
KMay(other Forum) Cuz being in Logistics makes it only logical for your motherboard to catch fire
BrainEater: Pending, The man with the beer and the mad Dr Dreams
Dell: Cuz shit breaks :P
Asus: Hey its 5+ years old and had to fail some time... But theres a Z77 mobo in the bunch... Shut up Soul
MSI: Why do all your borked mobos smell like cheap beer??? oh that's right cuz that's how we broke them.
Hope many more to come
AkG:Cuz someone's "IT" Grave yard has to rival my own:P


Teasers up tonight

I'm actually doing the same thing. An 8ft by 4ft wall, glassed in with motherboards floor to ceiling in the office of our new house. So far I have 18. We'll see how long it takes me to accumulate the rest. ;)

Let's hope these boards are dead beyond repair - otherwise that would be a damn waste :)

BTW, do you guys are aware, that there are quite nasty and toxic things into the capacitors on the mainboards? It might not be even healty after all.
