    The Painfully Depressing Bit By Bit Build

    So I've been itching for a while now to build myself a new rig, getting a bit sick and tired of being a laptop baby.

    I figured I slowly but surely start putting things together as the time and funds became available. I stumbled upon an Air 540 for filthy cheap a while ago and decided that's where I'd start. It sat on my desk empty for quite some time, rather depressingly.

    Last week I bought an Asrock Fatality H170 Performance from @Nagapie (an absolute pleasure to deal with, if all newcomers on Carb this good we would never have any problems) which arrived today.

    So now I sit with a case and a motherboard, nothing else and itchy as hell to actually do something with it, so naturally I popped the mobo in even if it is just to look at for now

    Will update as I go along, this might take a while lol

    Plain and simple, nothing fancy yet. Apart from the components, the next step will be to put a nice dark red/maroon tint on the side panel

    And then to remove the mesh vents from the front and top of the Air 540 and spray them a very dark, almost black, maroon colour

    Glad somebody else remembers them. That figurine is probably close on 20 years old, scratched it out a while ago while my folks were attempting to throw away all the old toys and what not
