Completely upgraded Commander, in time for the legendary(yes, i finished it in May).
all new bits!
All new lights!
All new GPU and stand!
I managed to catch a photo of a moving fan.
zero- repeat zero- cable ties. none.
It started as a crappy Asus M11BB that I got for I think 300 at best buy. I had this thing for(gawd) five years.
eventually I upgraded to a Cooler Master CM690 case, which, even then, was still a bit outdated.
Slowly it turned into this...
This thing had an E-sata port, but with my new motherboard(Asus Z270-A) the damned thing didn't have a port to plug it in to! Soooo I got rid of them. The USB 2.0 ports and headphone/ mic jacks too.
...and replaced them with this. This is MUCH easier
My pc sits on a shelf with a low overhang so reaching into it to plug stuff in is a chore.
This is my personal gaming PC, and it'll probably be in evolution hell until it just melts. The current upgrade is being sponsored by CyberGameway(http://www.cybergameway.com.
I'm big into Mass Effect, as you can tell. It started six years ago, with an OOOOLD Asus M11BB motherboard and some parts, and has since progressed into a giant huge gaming setup/video editing/music recording rig.
with the new remastered trilogy pretty much set in stone to be released on March 12th, part 3 of the build project will be online March 10th.
I can say this is was the build which was to be cornerpiece of my youtube series, and I'm glad it turned out to be so.
Part two of thew build blog online!
Part two of the build blog is online. where once it all fell down, I know proceed to build it back up in beautiful fashion, by swearing a lot.
Got a sponsor for the overhaul
Thanks to CyberGameway, I've begun the major overhaul that I've been wanting for a year! Unfortunately, as you can see with the video I've posted, it all sort of went, as Austin Evans would say, JANK.
Thankfully, Part 2 of this build(which will be up soon), everything went aces.
MAJOR tech upgrade!
Thanks to CyberGameway, this thing is getting tons of new(ish) tech!
IT'S DONE!! THANK FRICKEN FRAK IT'S DONE!
Finally, after a year and some change, through, 2 pairs of pants, a major surgery, a global pandemic, an engagement, a scholastic achievement, several high profile deaths, an election, an impeachment, and a torrent of snowfall, The Commander is finished.
Photos are online, but the video will be online the tuesday before the remastered trilogy releases!
