Thankyou for all the criticism. Like to hear everybody's feedback

Also update I have received my 4x4GB of Crucial Ballistix RAM. Big thanks to crucial for sending it out to me. Without them I wouldn't have been able to afford this build, so thankyou

Slightly off topic but how does the process go of getting products off mobs? Did you just email crucial and say that your doing a build will you sponsor it, and what happens to the ram once your done? Yours free to keep, do you sell it on, do you have to send it back??

Just curious

Not sure at this point I wanna use both as glass has a good strength to it aswell as a I nice finish but plexi is cheaper and more see through and would display the internals better.

plexi scratches easier, glass weighs more
you can get a low lead glass thats supper clear to look through, its used in fish tanks but, costs more

either way you go, good luck

Pretty legit question imo,

I gotta say back in my day it was really tuff to get sponsors , you really had to have proven your self as a top modder.

But i'd imagine now all you have to do is contact them with the idea show some proof of concept and then promise to clutter up your work log with tons of useless pics of their products Always a trade off.

But it's good they do it , helps alot of modders.

Yes that's correct it comes down to social media presents aswell as to produce multiple work logs to prove your efforts. We run a Facebook page of 3000 Likes as well as a YouTube, Twitch and Twitter page. Without these sponsors building would be a lot more difficult.
