    The "Mod Men" Web Series

    Hey guys, I was encouraged by Asus to introduce you to the MOD MEN series, a cool PC Modding series I hosted this year. In a nutshell, MOD MEN is like a cross between AMERICAN CHOPPER and THIS OLD HOUSE.

    Over 5 episodes, my crew at Mnpctech builds a water-cooled PC from scratch. Along the way I supply viewers with modding tips and tricks, product reviews, and industry perspectives. MOD MEN has received tremendous response from viewers around the globe – computer geeks and technology aficionados alike.

    Early episodes focus on design of the MOD MEN custom build, and milling the main structure from a 2-inch thick block of acrylic – not your usual PC material! We also get our first visit from "Cheapskate," one of our more eccentric Mod Men that communicates best by hacking into our signal from parts unknown and supplying advice when least expected. Never fear though, I keeps things on track as progress continues – painting with Brad, fabricating the custom cooling system with Randy, testing and fitting; and finally the grand unveiling in Episode 5!

    While the MOD MEN custom PC build is out of this world and not for the faint of heart, every episode also includes basic tips and tricks that any viewer can do at home – including painting techniques and other practical guidelines. And for those on the lookout for cool new PC products, I offer reviews and guidance to help the potential shopper!

    I think you'll get a kick out of MOD MEN and invite you to screen the trailer and episodes below. Enjoy!

    I finally got the series watched! That's actually saying a lot because I still haven't finished several TV series and I have Reservoir Dogs waiting from netflix

    Good stuff! I like the format of the show and your post is excellent, especially for a web series.

    I wonder how those screws would look as blue anodized, btw?
