"If SPCR goes down, does it make a sound?"

Case badges would be useless for people like me who don't use cases, but I do like the general idea :)

There's already an SPCR case badge in production, the one on the black Antec P180. I'd be willing to part with a few quid for one if I didn't have to pay for the case to go with it!

Q. How many SPCRer's does it take to change a light bulb?

A. It doesn't matter, as long as you do it quietly

:lol: :roll: :oops:

A3: 3. One to change it, one to one to make a big deal of the environmental implications and one to make a big deal about "visual loudness".

If an SPCRer falls over in the forest and there is no-one to hear them, do they still make a sound?

I don't think thermaltake makes any lightbulbs. Bashing incandescent and flourescent and instead recomending LED's is already included under environmental implications. but I did forgot one thing: one to undervolt it.

Now, how many overclockers does it take to change a lightbulb? At the very least: one to change it, one to overvolt it, one to aim a few delta fans at it, one to put an ineffective fingerguard over it and one to benchmark it.

Three to claim their lightbulb can shine brigher when cooled with a peltier.

This is the page that inspired me to ask the original question. My personal fave is the stubby holder :wink:

Disclosure: I have no capability to produce/finance SPCR merchandise but just wondered if any already existed and made it a pollto see if there was enough interest here to justify someone in the US trying to produce something.

I like the look of the EndPCNoise.com SPCR case badge a lot. Is it available separately?

You can. Just slip some crushed Vicodin into her food or beverage.

I would like just a black cloth visor with the blue SPCR logo in the middle. You know, those kinds that normally tennis people wear?

Example: The hat on the LEFT
http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merchant ... ode=210580

That kind of visor is what I'd like. Heck, even a regular hat would be awesome.

:lol: ROFLMAO, I'd by a t-shirt with that (as long as it's reasonably priced - nothing personal, I just hate arm-twisting).


One other thing I would have liked to see is SPCR badge like the one used on black spcr edition of P180 case. I would have liked to stick one on the bottom left side of my case or perhaps to the left/right top side of my monitor. Just don't make it too thick, perhaps no more than 4mm.

I'd definitely jam on a black polo with just a single small SPCR on it.

I can easily see people taking the stubby holder and creating silencing or damping parts with it instead of using it for drinks. :lol:

I kind of like the merchandising idea, although I'm sure it would be a big undertaking and it's hard to tell how profitable it would be. Also it would require Mike to either run a store or at least set up some space with a 3rd party.

I'm not sure if the SPCR case badge would be something they'd sell... it might run counter to the exclusivity of the SPCR P180 when anyone can just slap a badge on any case.

I'd like an SPCR stubby holder, an SPCR cup/mug/glass and an SPCR badge of course. :D Also perhaps, pens, rubbers and such things? Maybe an SPCR fan grill (that is very quiet and unlike most grills)? Maybe even SPCR fan shrouds? However, now we're approaching real professional products instead of mere merchandise. :lol:

I just hope shipping won't be sky-high for us Swedes/Europeans. :cry:

It wouldn't have to be a replica of the SPCR P180 badge, maybe just the small square type that fits on most Antec boxes?

Anyway, I suppose my original question has now been answered. There is a small market for SPCR merchandise but there isn't any available :(

Good idea. P180 SPCR exclusivity remains while people still get their SPCR badge. Everyone's happy. :D

Yeah... so it seems. That's too bad tbh. Maybe an official statement from Mike? Anyway... the Poll's locked or something because I can't vote "Yes".

Correct. Sorry but when I set it up I only expected this to run a week or so and selected a mid time range for the poll :oops:
