Over the next couple of months I'm aiming to build a computer case from acrylic.
I've contacted vendors about supplying hardware for my build and sponsoring it (I'm far from rich), where I initially planned to keep a blog on www.psycotic.co.uk.
However for the most part I got my email "forwarded to the appropriate department who will deal with your request."; or a polite decline.
I'm saving up for the materials (a little more expensive than I originally anticipated), and it looks like components now also, the problem is I need my components so I can cut the materials to the correct size and shape.
I can source most of the tools I'll be needing, I may have to buy a few little bits but on that front I'm pretty much set.
The hardware for the project itself doesn't need to be particularly high-end, obviously it would be good to have great hardware for something like this, but such is life. I do however plan to watercool the system, as I was lucky enough to get a pretty decent watercooling kit together - which has actually been sat on my shelf for over a year.
I obviously don't want to be watercooling mediocre hardware, as thats just a bit silly and a waste of money - so wish me the best over these coming months as I try and put this beast together!
I'd like to hear about any of your watercooling experiences, and any troubles you ran into.
You can read updates about the project here as I progress, or if you would like to give a helping hand with my project then you can find a donation button a little further down my blog, on the right hand side.
Any help would be appreciated. I've set the donation automatically at £5 as I don't want to ask too much from any of you individually, however you're welcome to send any amount you wish to my paypal - big or small, which again you can find by clicking donate. All the money will be going towards my project.
Thats not the only way you can support the project either, by reading regularly and commenting on my posts is a great help too. Any comments, suggestions or help is greatly appreciated, so why not get involved? :)
This is more about the art and overcoming challenges, than it is about building a computer.
Thanks for taking your time to read <3
