ya it happens, ones feel letting out old system/peripehal go. but eventually u have to live with this effect, thats y i stopped keeping feelings for my hardware. and doesnt feel anything as I change my hardware every 6 months.

modify it and use it as microwave , or use it as Aquarium, or also assemble full PC into it you might can win case modding competition.
