Big Chungus Trololololo

So due to my upgrade recently I had a load of parts left over. Given they don't all work perfectly (or in the case of the PSU are missing cables) I wouldn't sell them. It was decided a couple of weeks back that we (my friends and I) would use the parts to build a gaming server for us to grab copies of games from and play.

The board is pretty revolting tbh.



The guy who will be housing the rig and hosting the server is called Gary, and Gary hates anything flashy, RGB and so on. So, I decided to do the ultimate troll.



We were crying with laughter over that last night. The idea is to fill it with LEDs and make it as absolutely obnoxious as possible.

It will be getting the board, 8gb (for now) RAM that someone donated to us, as well as a 550w Cougar PSU and an old Quadro. I will probably mod it a bit and add in ALL THE FANS ! because I have some left over. For cooling I will use the H80i V2 from the Alienware.

I only paid £45 inc for the case. Apparently it is brand new, but one of the rivets on the back is buckled so the PSU doesn't go in properly. It will probably take me about twenty seconds to fix, given I have a rivet gun etc. I will likely mod it too, and put our squad graphics on it.

But yeah, expect the worst. That's the goal

Cougar PSU... So not only flashy lights, but smoke effects as well! What an innovation.

An eye burner lol.

Looz. It's an old one (Commander) and ran the green Alienware for about two years. Good PSU tbh. It won't have to work very hard. The CPU only pulls about 120w max.

LOL, I'm totally in love with the concept, can't wait to see what you do with it, hahhahaha!


EDIT: and also as a Fallout fan, the fact that your mates name is Gary is the cherry on top.

Gaaary? lol. I loved that vault

Yeah we were crying with laughter last night. We said that because of all of the RGB and lights etc that over winter the kids will have to crowd around it and warm themselves on the lights, rubbing their hands lmao.

I will be using some etch vinyl I have to put our squad name and user names on etc. I may even get some chrome vinyl and put two enormous GODLIKE decals on it.

I couldn't believe it when it came up tbh. It's absolutely the perfect case for that horrific mobo lmao. A match made in hell.

A month. An entire month has gone by *sigh*.

So the guy who I bought it from (the case) was sick when I bought it. I said to him not to rush. I then came home for what I thought would be 2 weeks. It's turned into 4.

Maybe I shouldn't have been *that* laid back, but whatever. IDK if I mentioned it but my mother had a really bad fall 6 weeks ago and broke her leg. Badly. She has osteoporosis and terrible arthritis in her shoulder and back. Any way, the cast needs to be on for 3 months. Because of her bone density and etc. It's been a total nightmare. They took the cast off of her yesterday and fitted a brace, but it's really no better. She still can't weight bear until Feb.

So yeah I came home and then just kinda got stuck here. Not complaining, have been pretty chilled.

So yeah, maybe at some time next week I can start modding the case and so on. Would make a change.

We do need a gaming server ASAP though. We keep getting Claymore campers in COD 4 and it's caused many rage quits.
