The beauty of simplicity. I like it.

2.5 years is a long time, but when the result is this, I think it was well worth it.

Amazing work, very clean and the attention to detail is phenomenal. Your work is up there with Charles Harwood.

The following pics were taken too early in the day. The sun just rising. I was in a rush otherwise I would have waited 30 minutes for optimal picture time.
The level of enthusiasm with which you approach the hardware building is almost uncanny, sacred I would say. I've been a fan of your work since 2008 and proudly own one of your GTX 780s.

Thanks. I wouldn't say it is enthusiasm though, otherwise it wouldn't have taken 2.5 years to finish . Just patience, planning, and being OCD about internal cleanliness. In the past I've always ripped apart a system after a couple of months because there was some trivial issue that bothered me. I just wanted to make sure that wouldn't happen this time around.

Even I wasn't a fan of my work in 2008.

Doing a small hardware upgrade on the Lian Li over the next couple of days if all goes well.

i5-6400.


Asus Z170-A. Will be dipping that white cover for sure.




This is the real reason I upgraded. I've wanted an NVMe SSD so bad since they were still nothing but a rumour. But my current Gigabyte board doesn't support it.


These totally clash but the price was significantly cheaper than any other 32GB set. Hopefully I can pull the spreaders off w/o too much trouble. I honestly thought they were 16GBx2 when I ordered them.

NVMe is probably one of the first technologies that I actually paid attention to years in advance to see how things would be once it actually arrived. Very interesting paired in a M.2 format I'd say. Waiting for 1TB options myself.

the 512 are not a bad price right now at CC, add 2 and raid them. Still over a g-note with tax added though for 2.
