The Black Sheep was escorted to the super top secret shipping facility today and is en route to the final destination facility today.  Several Black Sheep Ninja were quoted saying: "Baaaah," which roughly translates into:

System:  Aventum
Color:      White
Weight:   75.0 lbs/34.0 kg

Arrival Date: Unknown/Classifed

I mentioned a long time ago (few months back) that I wasn't excited and I would wait patiently.  I have.  Now that TBS has shipped - I am super excited.  I have called off from life for the next 3 weeks at a min.  My birthday is very soon - this is excellent timing, now Ill have my PC, icecream, cake and get to eat it too.

@Alex - I know your team is glad to get rid of me likely and already investing hard man hours into their next creation for some lucky customer.  Please take a moment to extend my personal, sincere, heartfelt thanks for their craftsmanship.

I will also need a proper address to mail my thanks for your lobby (or w/e you wanna put it).

Feel free to email that information should you be more comfortable.

Really looking forward to pics of this beast.  I am about as excited as you are. Excited

Here are some renders off of the measurement pictures for post factory design:









Just a rough idea - they shouldn't contrast near as much obviously.
Thanks for the interest.

I say "go for it".  Each individual should follow their own path.
The pc should be wood crated?  Should be better.  I have a question about the wood crate though.  If the crate is filled with expanding foam and the foam expands and dries does it not loose most of it's rebound and 'spft' character?
 
Just curious.

I think - it actually takes a better impact, the foam I mean.

From what I understand its like a liquid Styrofoam.   Also note:  This is the first time I've ever spelled Styrofoam.

I think I am more excited about this build with the artwork than when I was waiting for my recent build.  That may seem kind of funny but I just have to see this beast finished. Excited

I just got off the phone with the graphics people.  They will be ready for the PC next week sometime. 

I'm glad y'all like it - it isnt the traditional thing to see on a PC - I know.
Thanks for the support.

I would like to see the entire pc in detail photos before the graphics are applied. 
 
Not saying I don't like your art but for me, a thing of beauty sometimes comes in a simple wrapper.
 
Thanks,
