    I cast my vote for Joel, because a unstable pc is the worst!

    Tough pick between Hal and Joel.
    Nothing worse than a moody pc system that won't boot up properly at times in the case of old unfaithful.
    I do like what Hal did tho to minimize the getting cut on his case.

    Hal got my vote this week. A shame we couldn't add a case to the build but parts are more important. At least he'll have good airflow. ;)

    Hal's DIY Case showed that he has passion, and the design ain't half bad, but I went for 'The Gamemaker', I really feel like he needs the NZXT case, which I am a huge fan of.

    Hal gets my vote - that case is awesome and very creative. And if any of those old, crusty and ancient i7's need binning, I'll gladly recycle them for free!... in my own rig.. ;-)

    We should help HAL - I respect someone who DIYs their own case and will use the upgrade to study and work, good luck HAL with your potatoes!

    Voting Pascal's Smilodon this time around, I find that older case pretty nice, and a r7 1700 is a very solid upgrade and the first in this series that I remember.

    Thanks to anyone voting for me (Hal) and my potato masher - never thought my very low budget DIY case would generate so much love even with the work I put into it!

    Joshua the gamemaker from US PC specs looks really underpowered. He gets my vote btw Hal creative idea is also nice. Best of luck
