Acts of Ignorance

Over the weekend, I unboxed the Thermaltake Core V21 case. It’s a beast of a case and looks really good. To get a sense of the V21’s size, I took a photo of my daughter Sonia standing next to it.


The Gigabyte motherboard has already arrived, and I’m expecting the CPU fan tomorrow. PCW reader Byron P. donated a Corsair600 power supply to the build (Thanks, Byron!), which means the only items left to start the build are the CPU, graphics card, and RAM.

Once all the parts arrive, I plan to start documenting the build. Thanks to a few generous readers, $110 has been contributed towards the build (thank you!), and I’m taking illustration commissions to raise the funds to get the remaining items.

Below is one of the commissions I worked on this weekend:

      Indeed! There’s plenty of room to work inside. Can’t wait to start the build!

    Tell your daughter not to play inside it. Looks like she could.

      haha! She’s too smart to do that. I’m looking forward to having her assist me with the build.

Tell me what you think!
