FrozenCPU Tech Station Gaming PC

It's become apparent, after being emailed, Texted, tweeted, fb messaged the same image repeatedly by friends, that I need to post my reaction here. Like I said, I would have never predicted the FrozenCPU build getting more attention in destroyed state, but it's oddly comforting to know it was quickly identified. I was messaged by close friends within a minute of it being posted. Imagine spending a year to create something unique then it's deliberately pushed off a counter to be destroyed by somebody. I'm not bitter about it and I sincerely hope Mark seeks help. I know he has a little girl that loves him dearly. We were friends on facebook, before he closed his account from public. Last photo I saw of Mark was last year. He was driving to see his daughter on Father's day. He posted more photos of his daughter than anyone else on facebook. Those of you who were friends with Mark would agree. You could tell that she was his "Island of sanity" The public didn't know Mark has been battling personal demons for a long time. Maybe this incident being shared with public was a good thing. Mark needs to know he has friends and customers that do care about him.

Those of you who don't know about FrozenCPU, need to know that Matthew “Bucky” Buckner worked closely with Mark. I was imagining him helping Mark get through this incident. Operating on little sleep to make sure orders are taken care of, cause that’s the type of guy he is. Mark told me once ,when I was stressed,“You need a Bucky too, Bill".

Over my six year experience in working with FrozenCPU, Bucky was the spine of the company. He hired and trained all of the employees. Hes blessed with a real talent for predicting market trends. He would often contact me with new PC and case mod product ideas. He was responsible for many things that made FrozenCPU successful. Imagine if Valve took all of their games off Steam. I don't see how FrozenCPU will ever be the same after this.

Here is the build details I posted on 9/14/14:

FrozenCPU came to Mnpctech wanting a custom PC created to celebrate their 14 year success. They wanted the PC to be jaw dropping, unique and utilitarian. I have been brainstorming ideas of a sexy billet Tech Station for a long time. Mark & Bucky were intrigued with the idea. After conference a few calls with them. I learned they share our love for Sci-Fi, custom cars, and bikes. After the Concept is born, the next stage is altering the Concept to host their tasty menu for the best hardware. We suggested the buildf utilize two loops with 480 radiators. Mark loved idea of automating the PC in some manner. I suggested the cover open automatically. We've named this build the "FrozenCPU Tech Station" but "Billet Pron Bench" may be more appropriate.
