Bang The Box! (Mini-ITX Build Log)

No, bang the box isn't something that you might find in the dark corners of the Internet. It's my new mini-ITX build, which I have to admit right off the hop, is all Rob's fault. ;)

Grats, Doomy! Sorry for being super late on this. I'm not as active on the forums as I used to be, much to the delight of our spam checkers.

It was on sale. I had to buy Digistruct Peak, the three head hunters DLCs, and the other Mechromancer skin pack. Now I've got the loot and shoot itch again!
