    Cool Frank N SteinPC - Epic Upgrade 2013

    I have finally finished a labor of love that has taken over 8 months of holidays, weekends, and many many nights of work. I was fortunate enough to have “Frank” to a finish point where I took him to Quakecon 2013 and entered this rig into the Case Mod contest which eventually took first place.

    Here are some pics I took during the last push to get all the Bitfenix fans and Recon controllers in that I had not posted, so figured I would share them here as some additional pics. Hope you like.
