Whilst digging around when I got here I found an old sheet of glitter red acrylic. God knows how long I have even had this. I don't even know what I bought it for, and a piece was missing so it must have been years ago.



Drives looked a bit crap, so that looks a little better.

I mentioned an oddity with the case a couple of pages back. I promised to take pics.



Designer at Kolink, after the case had been made.. "Oh s**t, it's totally wrong and doesn't line up !"
Engineer at Kolink "Hold my beer and give me my hammer !"



Did this too.

When it's lit up with red LEDs, it could pass as a sponsored build for DOOM Eternal.

It's really weird how things work out tbh. It will be going in my kitchen, as Gary measured it up and he doesn't have the space for it.



I mean, it won't be "in in" the kitchen but it will sorta thing. I have two chairs in there I have never used in 9 years.



And as you can see instead of sitting on them I usually just put crap on them and then get too lazy to put it away. So I am going to get rid of them, and put it next to my gaming desktop.

It's just mad though how I have managed to scavenge all of these parts and stuff that all match perfectly without spending hardly anything. I think right now other than the used parts I have spent £45 on the case and £11 on those two cables that came today.

Even the storage. Like, the other day it dawned on me you can only put two 2.5" drives in this. One for the boot drive and one for storage. I had two SSDs but didn't want to put both in. So I kinda figured I would have to buy something to store the server files on. Then I went downstairs to pull my Dremel out the other day when cutting the back plate. I keep it in this old hemp bag my mother got from Tesco or something. I noted there was a hard drive in there. Couldn't remember where it came from, and figured it would be dead given I had lobbed it in a dirty old bag with my dusty Dremel.



Worked fine. I finally realised after about four hours that it was from my ex wife's external drive. I put a 250gb SSD in it for her to speed it up.

But yeah, all of this stuff would have gone in the bin. The board has that odd RAM issue and I broke the USB 3.1 internal header (still has a 3.0), the cooler sometimes sounds like a coffee machine (but works fine and doesn't leak) the PSU has half the cables missing or butchered for other projects and so on. This has been a great way to use it all and save it from the landfill.

When you troll hard and end up getting trolled yourself.

I hated those DS logos on the fans. Decided to draw some up in red. Only my printer is running out of ink and this is what I got.



Pink with light pink stripes lol. They were too good to throw away

Apologies for the water mark. I forgot I had reset my phone recently.
