    My Very Painful Decision

    So I finally have a Quad core system.



    I upgraded my R2-M5 to be my new system, but as always he's out to get me.



    Ever since I have built it, I have had nothing but problems. Half the time it wouldn't even boot. I thought with a complete overhaul of the system that would change, but it hasn't. I am still plagued with power, USB, and booting issues. I may be paranoid, but I think that R2 is cursed.

    So, it is my decision to scrap R2-M5. I will not be using it as a computer any longer. I have a Star Wars themed office so I'd like to keep it, but I don't know what it'll become. I may turn it into a Network Media Vault like this HP. Although I probably have less than 50GB that I need saving. So maybe it'll be something different.

    The Quad core system will get a "normal" case, maybe modded, possibly Star Wars themed. None of that is a huge rush. I still have to pick a case, mod it (maybe)......we'll see.

    I really LOVE the NZXT Khaos, but nearly $400 for a case???

    Another contender is the Tempest

    Lastly, the CM Stacker 830

    Any thoughts?

    Why dont you add servos and an RC reciever. You could turn it into a sort of motorised cup holder

    How about a Lian Li PC 343B











    Its still expensive though at £220

    Have fun mate,

    Looks like the UFO case. I never understood Lian Li cases.
