    Awesome! Turned out cooler than I could have imagined and that barcode is classic! You should replace those shortcut keys on the keyboard with some old-fashioned buttons like those on the mod, and maybe some machine screws around the edges? Anyway, I love the look and you did a great job, very creative!

    Yes some of the switches switch the TV screen on and off and there's a reset and on/off switch.....The big chunky switches switch the leds on the front panel on and off and the lighting for the valves on and off also.

    Ouch!

    Default The Interocitor at i29

    Okay, so for the last 3 days I've been here at the i29 LAN-party at Newbury Racecourse. The Interocitor has been of interest to quite a few people and I've had positive feedback from many of them. There are over 1000 people here with their machines and apart from a few ready-modded boxes, there is a disappointing lack of modded stuff. I got lots of comments that included the words "Cool" and "Wow"

    I fired up my machine and it performed very well until the room temperature rose to 30 degrees C (About 8 hrs of gaming later).
    Then, a loud screeching noise came from my graphics card which, to be honest, worried the life out of me. I took the card out and popped downstairs to the trade stands to see what could be done to sort the problem out.

    Luckily the Zalman people were on hand to help me and I bought a nice Zalman copper cooler at a good price. Fitting it however, was another matter. The Galaxy Geforce 7600GT card must be a non standard design as the holes securing the heatsink and fan do not match the reference design.

    There was nothing for it, but to ask for a refund and put the old heatsink back. I carefully smothered the thing in a decent thermal compount (arctic silver) and the trouble vanished! PHEW!

    This card was bought second hand, from ebay and maybe the previous owner didn't seat the heatsink properly. But, for now, al systems go.

    I used The Interocitor to great effect in the Bad Acid Clan's attempt to win the COD2 trophy. (I'm not a member but they were a player short). We got knocked out after a few professional search & destroy clans turned up, but we had a great time! Thanks to all the [BA] guys for all the help and beer!

    So come on all you modders, don't stay at home. get out and show off your boxes! (See you all at i30).


    Ouch!
