Lore

Rome, Italy 64 A.D. - "Iratus est nostra civitas"... ??? translation... ..." "Our city is burning!" cried a man with robes so lush and an olive crown, a true give away this man was high born or a member of the senate.  His thick Roman accent made unclear the orders he barked: "Come with me, the city isn't safe". Shocked as I was that he didn't not question my bio-mechanical suit I followed him.

This was the first time I've ever time traveled into a crisis filled state. I was unprepared, luckily my A.I. assistant is embedded with a TimeCapsule Version 10: a portable database system filled with petabytes of information at its disposal to aid me on my quests.

Nero is a great emperor. He was able to provide Rome with lush theaters and splendid way of life but this came at a cost.

Finally, we were safe, or so he said. I began to question him on what was going on and most curiously, why isn't he afraid of me. His long white beard floated in the air as he looked at my A.I. when speaking and looked & nodded then to me when his translation was being delivered,... I thought to myself "This person fully understood that my A.I. is not a real person but an assistant, he HAS seen this before".  To my astonishment, my conversation with the man proved very fruitful and nerving. He continued to talk, I listened; my A.I translating:

"Nero, is a great emperor. He was able to provide Rome with lush theaters and splendid way of life but this came at a cost. Almost a year ago, he happen upon a person such as yourself. Although both of yourselves come from the future, man is man and a weak man will fall prey to a strong man. Nero is a strong man, he took over the machine, the A.I. and the traveler, this produced great accomplishments for our livelihood. We do not fully understand your advancements, but this we knew... the captive time traveler one day, dismembered his A.I. assistant. I've overheard that while he did so, tears covered his face as if he had lost a true friend, yet he cried "Combustione Totalis" in a loud maniacal voice. We are almost certain this is not the doing of Nero, but of the time traveler who swore to set the city on fire if he was not let go to return to his time. Nero, neglected his request... this is our punishment. Last I saw him, he was in the city garden... wait... where are going?!"

I shoved the Roman noble man aside and rushed to the city garden and just as I thought, my suit auto-ran to its called upon location. After almost a year, I finally saw my brother again. "Total Combustion, eh Rick? You should win an award for product of the year naming, hahahahaha." I said. Rick responded: "Well, after I disrupted Nero's attempt to burn the city, I needed to make sure that history stayed on the right path while having a little fun, let's go". We linked up, stepped into my Time Capsule, my A.I. introduced its TCv10 Chip into it and went back home.

Briefing

So you may have guessed it after reading the Lore. This computer is mainly going to be playing the Total War series. This PCs has specs way beyond of what is needed and it will play almost any game with flying colors. The creation of this computer was very fun. I especially like it when an client gives me full control of how they want their PC to look and this is the kind of product we at Bandi Tech love to deliver. Any questions or comments feel free to leave them, email us, find us on facebook or on the many more links we have at the bottom of this page.

Hints for building a similar PC:

  1. The Corsair case is a pretty tight case for all the materials we were putting in.

  2. If a BIOS gets busted, you have another one! This MSI board has 2 physical BIOS chips, so go ahead, overclock and damage one!

  3. Don't leave the PC on un attended, it might burn your city next.
