Blandalf the White



#hmods
This is one of my newer builds, and a beauty she is!

This one was built as an entertainment center. Ditching an optical drive in favor of a large hard drive and super fast Ethernet port, for downloading and streaming. Nothing too amazing, but it doesn't need to be, and it's easily upgradable. For the RAM, I chose Elite simply because it was red.

One thing that isn't in the specs, I also managed to snag a FavorMate Wireless Keyboard/Air Remote instead of going for a mouse and keyboard.. just seemed like too much work otherwise.

Along with painting the chassis and side panels, I also cut some custom plates for the GPU, and also to cover the cable feed holes(seems like a no-brainer to make some white ones!)

I'm all about subtle with this build. To me, it's sleek, it's sexy, and it's very striking to look at. so much so that I find myself just looking at it while i'm watching a movie!
