I am a husband, father, pc modder and a gamer. I live in the northeast of england with my wife and two children.

I work full time as a Quality Assurance Officer but build and modify PC’s, in my spare time. I first started building PC’s around 2014, it was a hackingtosh, I switched from windows to mac around 2009 but I wanted to game on a PC.  It was a dual boot system with a i7 4770k a gigabyte z97 itx motherboard, 8gb corsair Ram, evga 970, 2x 250gb ssd for boot system for mac os and windows, 1tb hdd and a corsair cx 550. It was not a bad little system it all fit nicely into a bitfenix prodigy case, it was not long until I cut a window into the side panel and upgraded to a fully customised watercooling system, from there I developed a real interest in PC building, watercooling and modding.

In 2017 I managed to get my first sponsorship with Alphacool , Thermaltake, Nanoxia and To The Wire Custom Sleeves. Project No Name was born, fully watercooled system in a custom thermaltake x71 case, I even built my first ever custom reservoir which I think turned out great. This build also got nominated for mod of the month over on bit-tech.net, which I was very honoured to be nominated, the quality of the builds are outstanding.

2018 was a great year, I did another project with Thermaltake called Project:Snow, this was on display at EGX on the Cyberpower stand. I was also chosen to complete in the Thermaltake Uk Modding Trophy 2018, where 5 modders went head to head, we all had the same case and components I could not believe how different all the builds were, you can find my photos in project #TT20.

2019 will start off strong, I have a new build starting the end of January, and I am going to be starting a mini ITX scratch build, this will be a side project but will hope to get it done by the end of the year. I am also going to look at expanding in to custom parts going to make use of the CNC and 3d printer, more to come of this.

I continue to build PC’s and develop my knowledge, it is not always about the best hardware and the best cases, it is about transforming an everyday looking PC and making it stand out.
