Description

i came home on monday or tuesday, and felt i needed to do something to make my day more interesting. so i decided that the dell XPS 8300 sitting on my table would no longer adorn the same spot. i started by making a cardboard chasis. this had a listerine cardboard piece, and some other cardboard. i then glued it all together and used a special piece of transparent plastic to guard the motherboard and components from straight touch. immediately when i started, i realized that the posibility of fire due to hot temperatures and cardboard would be an issue. So, I killed the XPS case and used tin snips, and a dremel to get the standoff's out. then i got the power button out, and some of the USB pieces. all in all, this build turned out way better than i ever thought it would. the only missing part, is the hard drive. and a copy of windows 7. Today, to test the pc, i turned it on and it went into the bios,i jumped for joy! i fiqured that by now, i had killed that poor motherboard. the name i have lined up for this certain build, is The Cardboard Class. And, for any haters, I have photos of the machine running in its current state.
