My second build in 2015, was my first sponsored project. Nate over at E22/Hex-Gear took a leap of faith and offered me one of their brand new R40 chassis! he ran E22 which, for the longest time was the best/only place in the UK to get modding supplies. Nate pioneered much of the stuff everyone is still doing today, combs, hardline tubing... that was Nate. So for him to offer up a free ride was huge to me. I'll be forever thankful.
The case was a monster! panels were steel! and so heavy as hell! but it's design was awesome! still some great builds being turned out today in the R40/R80. They almost put out the ITX R20 too. It was Nate and Hans. I hope someday they bring it back. This was also the first build I did all the cables myself, until this point (2015) I'd order my cables from PexonPCs (highly recommend them to anyone).
Nate carried Teleios sleeve so I jumped at the chance to learn from the best (Hans).
