    Yeah I considered doing a wood cover for mine and dual-purposing it as a dining table but ended up just doing a plexiglass cover for the TV to make it level when not playing DND. Guess I could always get a wood cover made in the future if I wished but those cubbies would be dining pits of danger.

    I definitely would have done them differently if I did it again, but yes they do use them. I designed them with the size of the Players Handbook and note-books in mind, but they mostly use them to stow their pencils, character sheets and whatnot. Most of them just leave all their stuff in the cubby's between sessions. Edit: forgot to mention their biggest down-side, they are absolute knee-cap destroyers. The first session anyone plays at that table they are guranteed to wack their knee on them. That lesson gets learned pretty fast though If you're interested I detail that over here: https://imgur.com/a/KbXBX It's a sizable investment, especially time if you intend to do it yourself, but I've seen alot of easier versions that accomplish the same basic things, like this https://imgur.com/gallery/hTbw4 and this which served as inspiration for mine.

    Been a while since I updated on my set-up. Specs on the rig are in signature, but you can find all the pictures and details on the VR set-up here: https://imgur.com/a/fMAMK And if you're a tabletop gamer, you can find details on the table here: https://imgur.com/a/KbXBX

    Cool, what did he use the pelton wheel for? Back on-topic: so it sounds like Case Labs and modDIY are the places to go for just a Motherboard Tray, unless someone else has suggestions on that front I'm leaning towards the Merlin SM8. A lot of modDIY's look cool, but I really don't like the look of their PCI brackets, they looks real flimsy to me. What do you guys think?: Merlin SM8: ModDIY PC-D009 ModDIY YJ-ZJM08 ModDIY YJ-LZ1U

    Yeah I don't think it's really an issue myself. But to be on the safe side I'll be looking for a blower-style GPU and some good ventilation going across the systems. I've never heard of Moddiy before, I'll check them out, thanks.

    Lego Case Planning Assistance

    Thanks for the responses guys. Essentially there is no limit to the budget, it can go as high as it needs to. Part's aren't finalized and if this project ends up moving a few months into the future things may change (I also tend to change things slightly based on what's on-sale at the moment), but anyway: ATX for MOBO size i7-7700K H100i V2 I'd like to get a MOBO with m.2 slots for some M.2 SSD's (also considering PCI SSD for the main boot drive) - something along the lines of a Asus ROG Maximus There will be mechanical HDD's for storage, probably 2 DDR4 RAM, probably 32GB GTX 1080 TI (not interested in SLI/Crossfire) Corsair RM####, not sure on wattage yet, but I'll probably go quite high to keep the fans off as much as possible Sleeved Cables, RGB strips, Noctua fans, all the standards
  9. Hello Everybody, I'm planning an ambitious (for me) new rig, the highlight of which will be a case made out of Lego. The exact aesthetic and design I'm still debating, but here are the general idea's I've pretty much decided on: Computer will be on it's side, so that the back of the motherboard points down (80% sure) Case will likely be building-shaped, with a "skylight" (acrylic side panel) roof and/or easily removal roof to get at and show off the innards Front-Panel connectors will be hidden by some aspect of the building's facade (if I include them at all) Will need to do custom start/reset buttons (I've never wired anything like that before, if anyone could point me to a guide I'd appreciate it) Full-ATX in size AIO water cooler of some sort for CPU Minimize fans and metal-to-lego contact Here's where I need some help; I was thinking it would save a lot of work if I have a just a Motherboard tray and possibly PCI/IO Bracket as a base to build around. I was originally thinking of buying some cheap case and cannibalizing it, but maybe buying some kind of test-bench or similar bare-bones item would be even better? I found these Motherboard Trays & Backplates from Case Labs but I was wondering if anyone knew of some good alternatives they could point me towards. Once I have that part delivered and can take some good measurements in person, I can 3d model it and the other components and get to work on an actual design for the case. I'll probably make a Build Log on that. I'm in Canada and would prefer links for places that ship to Canada and pricing in CAD if possible. Thanks for looking everybody. Comments and questions welcome. EDIT: More info as requested: Essentially there is no limit to the budget, it can go as high as it needs to.

    What's that right under your GPU? Some kind of bracket to prevent GPU sag?

    I should probably mention I'm in Canada. Anybody got hands-on experience with the Nexus 6P?

    Starting to lean towards the Nexus 6P, although the only version I could get is the 32GB which would be a bit of a bummer.

    Sorry, the Axon and One Plus aren't options for this upgrade and the carrier wants $550 for the Note 7, which I ain't doing.

    Recommend Me An Android Phone

    Hello everybody, I haven't really been keeping track of phones for the last year or 2 and I've got the opportunity to upgrade my phone through my carrier, there are a couple options and I just wanted to know if there are any major issues with the one's that I am considering that I may not know of. I currently have an LG G3 and I do like it, especially the physical button layout. Options: LG G4 - free LG G5 - $100 Nexus 6 - free nevermind that one, too big Nexus 6P - free (never heard of this one before) Samsung Galaxy S6 - free So what do you think? I know Linus didn't think too highly of the LG G5, would it be worth a $100 over the G4, how's the Nexus and Galaxy S6 in comparison? I would like removable battery, microSD slot and a good rear camera. Thanks in advance.
