Description

This project had special meaning to me as I did this with the help of several companies and their gracious donations. The purpose was to create a custom designed, military themed, computer to be raffled off by the local Veterans of Foreign Wars(VFW) in order to raise money for their Color Guard. The Color Guard travels to events, parades, and most importantly performs the military honors at funerals.

After receiving my discharge from the military, to fight for custody of my oldest, I went back to school to finish off my bachelor’s and begin a career in the technical field. While attending Radford University, the local VFW post was integral in my transition back into civilian life. The VFW post is like a second family and always went out of their way to help others. Once I had graduated and gained a job as a developer, I chose to pay back the VFW. As computers was my only good skill, Project: Military Tech was born!

Project was sponsored by ModMyMods.com, EVGA, Thermaltake, Gigabyte, Overlockers.com, Home Depot, and a few individuals that helped with parts and materials.

Good choice of parts and a could cause. In the future though, maybe a more high performance gpu?

Dalchi_frusche submitter 4 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

In the future I hopefully will have more money

I think the Corsair C70 would've been a better fit, but that's just my opinion

Dalchi_frusche submitter 4 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

If I had the money to start with the C70, I would've.

I would have gone with a better CPU, but the cause of this build easily overrides any criticism in my view. Hate off to your mate, and the build looks awesome.

Dalchi_frusche submitter 4 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

"Hate off" is that like a build off done in anger? Haha just kidding and thank you.

Almost all the parts were donated by companies or fellow veterans. The CPU I got for almost nothing from a fellow forum mate and veteran. He would've donated it for free but needed a few bucks to get his car fixed

Hold on a second...

THE MOTHERBOARD WASNT MODDED???

Dalchi_frusche submitter 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Nope, fortunately Gigabyte's motherboard with the tan digital camo tied all our paint/modding together. :D
