Why not make your computer something your friends envy with a window case and neon lights and by saying the ever so satifsying "She runs at 3.5 GHz. What did you say yours ran at again?" and watching there jaws drop.

Metallic Surge is a web site for a company that is dedicated to building some freaking amazing computers. Yes, the website isn't fantastic. But the computers we build are! You have my garauntee on that!

Do yourself a favor and check it out at http://www.metallicsurge.com

Peace.

I scanned the site and I have a few questions.

What kind of testing do you do during the 24 hour test period to ensure stability?

In your quote section, you did not mention what brand of PSU you use or the brand of the RAM.

Which model of swiftech kit do you use? the 8500? 22500? 8501? 22501?

Is your water cooling just the stock Swiftech kits or did you make any modifications?

Is the video card water cooled? If not, is there an options to water cool it?

What have you done to ensure that your water cooling systems do not leak?

From what I've read on your site, you do not offer any warranties?

You made many references to case modding but there were no options in the quote section. What type of modding do you do (if any)?

How much are you charging for the lights/window/etc?

Thats exactly what I was thinking. Minor overclocking isn't exactly hard (or dangerous). Neither is building a water cooling set-up, and water cooling kits are really easy to put together (well built custom set-ups perform better than kits).

The hardest part is probably picking the right parts (more difficult than it sounds).

I dont see why so many people are scared of overclocking. Unless you bump a P4 up to like 1.8V there really isn't damage in the long run. Overclocking does reduce the life of your computer, but in 10 years are you really going to be using the same computer? If your overclocking chances are your not Wink
