Kobalt - Bim's Corsair Carbide Spec M2 Micro-ATX Build

In 2006, I built my very first PC. It, at the time, was a fairly impressive machine. I used a Core 2 Quad back when Core 2 Quads were new. It served me faithfully for 10 years or so. During that time, every now and then, I would play around with the idea of upgrading my rig, researching on parts and prices. After getting married in 2015, I had saved up enough funds to finally get a new rig. 

I immediately set off researching once again. And this is what I eventually ended up with. Everyone, meet Kobalt.

Fictional Cars I Wish I Owned

A few weeks ago, I got an idea for a post here at thanks to an email I received from Carmudi. I thought to myself "Man, it'd be cool if Carmudi had every conceivable car on their listing." With that rattling in my head, I listed down what cars from fiction would just be awesome to drive down the Skyway while blasting some Katy Perry or some Taylor Swift. Let's go take a look at that list right now!


Let's get the obvious one out of the way from the get-go. The Batmobile is one of the most recognizable fictional car despite it having many, many looks. The specs and features of the Batmobile really depends on the medium and the story it was featured in, but they all have one thing in common - badassery.

I'm actually quite partial to the BTAS batmobile, though. Look at that thing.
