    The Hellcat.

    Another update. Maybe the last for a few days (I'm tired and beat !). I've now drawn, plotted and cut all of the templates for the RGB diffuser and a PCIE screw cover. I was going to do that (the screw cover) right back at the beginning but it slipped my mind and then I had to move so time ran...

    The Hellcat.

    Yeah it's pretty wild lol. I've added RGB ram, CPU block and am working on custom RGB for the GPU (I'm holding up the led strip in the video testing it). Paint has been badly damaged but I've bought more to sort that out. I did make a noob mistake though. I forgot the screen in the floor has a...

    Upgrade time. 1920x, X339 Aorus Pro, Dom RGB and etc. Lots of NVME drives too :D Lots more RGB and a new CPU block too :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnuv_oIShL4

    MJ12

    Ok so some one called Matt emailed me a few days ago asking about my old MJ12. We exchanged a few emails and the upshot was that I may possibly know someone with the case. Just one issue. Matt emailed me loads of pics and I opened the email on my phone (something I don't like much) and...

    Trying to identify Alienware case

    AHH yes I remember that. The issue will be whether a modern mother board can interface with it. I know UEFI messes up a lot of legacy stuff. If you get stuck holler me. I'm sure I have my switched passive one somewhere. I removed it all and did the wiring and LEDs myself, so I don't need it. I...

    Area 51 R2 fp pins

    The first pic :D I got a X99 SLI plus by MSI so I did it before. Then I put the stock board back in though, so threw out the adapter I made. Now I've got a X99 Godlike going in as an upgrade (currently 10 core 2.2ghz ES Broadwell Xeon, switching to a 2.8ghz 16 core with new board) so yeah, I...

    Area 51 R2 fp pins

    Anyone got this written down? I'm about to swap my board out and need to create a fp header converter. I've done it before but I know it took me hours to buzz it and figure it all out so I'd prefer it easier this time. TIA

    Trying to identify Alienware case

    Predator 2.1 aka the ALX. I've got a silver one. That is an active board, though there's little chance you'll ever get it working again with a different board. Here's why.... That active board runs a security check. It checks the DMI or naming of the motherboard. If the mobo does not report...

    That modded panel is long gone. Cost me £120 for a new one from the USA. Lesson learned, don't cut the panels lol. The fans are all pushing out so the side panel needs to be off really. I've got it though :)

    The Hellcat.

    Hey man. First things first the cooling. I simply didn't need a 360 in the roof. Two 240s are more than enough. It's kinda like why didn't I use big fat hose? Because it makes absolutely no difference. I've done all of that to mods before and it wasn't worth it. I still hang onto X99 because...

    Cheers Matt. Yeah, it was a monumental amount of work. Just from the modding and tinkering I'd done I knew it would be a serious haul to do it justice. That's probably why I cut my teeth on the Predator 2 first. Those are relatively simple in comparison. I did the same sort of thing and ripped...

    They've all changed since. I still have all of them, but one is at my mother's in use, the silver one has been deboarded and packed away and the old skool build is in the closet.

    The Hellcat.

    And finally after three months of having it apart I looped it up (which took a day, if that) and. And finally after six more months... I decided to do my ass on peripherals and add ons. Add one hellishly expensive chair, and. And the in between. 5" thick bubble wrap and I think...

    The Hellcat.

    More testing and you guessed it, more wiring. And more testing and guess what? more wiring. Now if you were wondering how the floor pan was now looking then wonder no more. That was about ooo, 70%? of it? believe me when I say it was terrifying. So I decided to do something that...
