B-Negative The Modding Interview

Custom PC builds are becoming increasingly popular these days. But what separates us normal folk from the greats?
To answer this question we must first understand why it is done. Go back only 15 years and all PC's were boring and pretty much identical. But something then changed, components started becoming cheaper and available to the masses. People started building their own PC's to match what they wanted to do with them, be it a basic office rig, a gaming rig or a home power PC for rendering.
From that moment forward, people wanted to put a personal touch to their creations. Back then, yes it was limited to cases and basic fan choice for the majority of people, but this has moved forward at an exponential rate. Nowadays you can customise lighting, colours, cases and even add waterblocks to almost all components.
with this advancement is personalisation the modding comunity was born. Bored with what was available, armed with tools ranging from a dremel to a CNC, the modding world has been taken force by a handful of well known modding "Celebrities".
Our very own forum member "Wraith" took it upon himself to get inside the head of one of these top modders, B-Negative.
So lets find out what makes him tick, lets hope he can provide inspiration for future greats. Because lets be honest, who doesn't look through the build log section of the forum and wonder how some of these PC's get made and where that inspiration comes from?
