True story... one of my buddies lost one of his balls in an unfortunate wrestling accident lol

Less than true story, the doctor said if I win this system, he might be able to get his ball back.

And apparantly it'll cure that cancer i've been hearing about lol

Did you ever see that Tom Selleck movie called "Folks!"?

One of the funniest movies I ever saw,....lots of dark humor. A very black comedy if there ever was one. Tom Selleck gets put through the wringer in so many creative ways,......all of you should see it if you can.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

True...That is also Texans and Mustang owners sticking togetherCool

Did I also mention that I was petting my dog when she put the heal through him...

His head was in my lap, so when he got a spike in his noggin he ended up biting down....

Ended up getting both balls, At least he died like every dog should..with a ball in his mouth..

I don't know how you winning would help your friend? But at least I would be able to search online for prosthetic Nuts :(

Ok,... I think we've thrashed that subject thoroughly,.... now how about that bitchin case that this computer comes in? This thing is close to perfection if what I'm seeing on the CoolerMaster website is true. What a crapload of cool features! (but no nuts)

Quote

Yeah, Fat78....That little kid and his puppy was.....Was me and Ball-Z

 
I went to a doctor after the incident with the heel....
 
He sent me back in time to try and fix things,...
 
Although I should have known something was wrong since it was a doctor who couldn't even afford a computer...
 
Or, even knew how to reattach a testicle!....
 
We were staying at a hotel after my dad died, when he got back from Nam and found out my mom was cheating...
 
We hear some little fat kid was so exited for his birthday cake, he knocked it over and the candles caught the hotel on fire....
 
We were almost out when, somebody knocked what is now known as a computer onto our heads...
 
In turn, knocking my mom out where she ended up dieing in the fire...
 
He turned around and tried to say your welcome only to scar the kid more....
 
Which in turn, caused that kid to grow up with a fear of fire, computers and a distrust of women...
 
Leaving him scared towards having nice tech or a sane girlfriend...
 
The only thing he was left with was a faithful puppy...
 
Now that he is gone, and the girlfriend, and computer,....nothing is left!

Just a hope that Cyberpower restores his hope and faith in mankind!

While you were there, you should have bought some Microsoft stock. If you had, you could now be living in an upscale neighborhood in Washington State in a 66,000 square foot estate that 'talks' to you and spending all of your time on philanthropic endeavors throughout the planet.

Lest we forget, that's not just CyberPower, it's also Intel, CoolerMaster, Kingston, and all of the happy campers working at HotHardware.com (our facilitators) too. Thanks again to all of our sponsors for your donations that make these 'best on the web' contests keep on happening for us.

Actually, he wasn't wrestling at all lol

He was minding his business watching tv. He was laying belly down on the floor and 2 guys were in the room wrestling.

One thing led to an other and someone's knee came down right between his legs and crushed one of his balls into the floor.

He said he passed out immediately from the pain. Woke up later in a hospital sans 1 ball.

It's a pretty horrific story, and I will never lay on the floor like that again after hearing it. lol

LOL I have no idea why the guys were wrestling or how it started... I know they were all marines.

Or maybe it was an other military branch....

And that it happened in a barracks.

Ah either way... it ended in terror and tragedy.

Can you imagine how awful it would be for one of your nuts to be crushed?

It was just Knee-nut-ground.... no where for that ball to go but boom. Ouch... makes me shudder every time I think about it.

Don't ask..Don't tell......=terror and tragedy Zip it!

Tell them, that move should be called the Luke Skywalker......Because he crushed the death star Indifferent

At least you will always be able to beat him in a race,.... because he can never go Ballz-Out anymore.

Anyways...Back to the case? Yes, I personally love this Co...Co....Coooler Master! In my progressive build on the workstation this is my all time second choice! My first one would be the Corsair8 series. This one is more practical because of the external connectors. This whole system would be perfect, because I wouldnt have to worry bout flashing a new board, or the reg issues with Microsoft when changing MoBo's. I can take the SSD and GPU, switch and it ready....You Know just Pop it in and GO!!  Kind-ov a Nutless situation..I would say Geeked
