Thumbs up Tuniq Arrived

The legendary Tuniq Tower made its self known at my apartment last night. The thing is massive but I have never read a single review about it actually harming anybody's pc so I have confidence. This weekend I will be lapping it so standby for a "how to" thread complete with pictures, maybe a video, and a complete list of things you will need to replicate the project. Good times will be had!

You'll also need a engine cherry picker to drop in onto your mobo.
On a real note I look forward to the pics and the how to.
