    I built a sleeper but the first think I focused on is the airflow. I came up with ways to have front and bottom case fans while keeping my build as stock looking as possible. Only after that did I slap in some components. I can run mine with the case closed all day and it won't overheat

    It's kinda awesome to think that a few years ago, Austin lost everything when his home burned down in a fire.
    And yet through support from people in his life, he was not only able to get back on his feet, but is still reaching new heights.
    You compare Austin who just lost his house, to Austin walking through a computer store picking out the highest end parts he can like it's absolutely nothing. If that doesn't motivate you to get off your ass and work towards your dreams, what the hell does?

    You should also get a CRT monitor for it and maybe use a Win98 theme for it like someone else mentioned to make it as "sleepy" as possible.
