Hi I'm colin Mcnally from consett in durham. Iv been building gaming PC's for around 10 years when I started sim racing after moving from console's. The last 2 years iv started doing full custom water loops in mine and a few friends PC's. This will be my first themed build so I thought I would include my other hobbie/passion which is motorbikes. Project motogp will include moving parts and a motorbike stand.

I'll like to thank all the sponsors for all the hard work in these tough times for making this possible.

The first parts from scan arrived yesterday which include 

  • ThermalTake View 51 Snow
  • ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F Gaming
  • ASUS Radeon RX 5700
  • 500GB Seagate FireCuda 520
  • 14TB Seagate IronWolf Pro
  • 850W Thermaltake Toughpower GF1
  • Thermaltake Pacific Hard Tube Water Cooling Kit
  • Thermaltake Pacific V-RX 5700 Series Plus GPU Waterblock
  • Thermaltake Water Cooling Pacific Hard Tube Bending Kit
  • 300mm Thermaltake TtMod Sleeved Cables
  • 300mm Thermaltake TT Premium PCIe Extender

With more parts coming soon I'll be starting my build in the next few days and will post as much as I can.

Thanks again to

I'll also like to wish the other 4 competitors the best of luck stay safe and have fun building.

Hi all back with my weekly update and over the last week iv started to fit the waterloop.

I started with the gpu waterblock which I always get nervous doing.

When I figured out what way the pipes would run I started bending.when I got all the pipes in i filled with distilled water to test for leakes and clean the system out.

Now I've got to adjust the pipe and change the coolant to white. Its getting close now not much left to do so hopefully next week my build will be done.😁

I have a son, and he loves computer games and cycling. It would seem to be very different, but he loves both. The other day I asked him what he finds appealing about gaming characters, and he told me that he was into Colin McNally's project. He had been enjoying his work in building gaming PCs for about 10 years when he started chasing SIMs after switching from consoles. I didn't fully understand him, but he recently stated that he was tired of the regular bike and wanted an electric one. After hearing that, I found best electric bike for kids in an online store and bought it.
