    Note from the mods: this is an NBR member initiative and not something tied to NBR but given all that Prema has done for the community, we agreed this would be fine.

    DONATIONS COLLECTED SO FAR: $3777 USD

    Without the help of this generous and hard working person, the enthusiast's dream of a powerful Aliencrushing machine would have not been possible.

    For all the nights and days he has spent creating, tweaking, enhancing custom BIOSes/VBIOSes for the latest Clevo machines.....without his BIOS, really, these machines on the stock BIOS would be no better than a crippled ACER Netbook with 0 options for modifications, overclocking, tweaking, etc.

    In collaboration with HIDevolution who has generously agreed to provide Prema with the latest Clevo P870DM-G laptop refresh as soon as it's out with the latest GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, that laptop would be the flagship of Clevo and have the latest GPU. But as a gift from all of us who appreciate's this man's hard work, we would all like to help sup up his system with faster/more RAM, SSDs, etc.

    We will start collecting donations from all that want to contribute.

    For now, here is how it will work

    1- Send your donation via PayPal to this address: paypal@hidevolution.com

    In the comments / instructions to seller, enter: Prema Donation

    2- HIDevolution's accounting department will keep track of everything, when the system is released, when the system is released, they will do the needful to sup up the specs as per Prema's request using the donation money

    3- Also send an email to snappyphoenix@tutanota.com and in the subject line just type in your forums username / donation amount. This makes it easier for me to track the total amount of donation money we have so far.

    Example: Papusan / $30 USD

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank @Donald@HIDevolution and @Ted@HIDevolution for their generosity in offering this system to a person who deserves it more than anyone.

    Just imagine, all this goodness that we have in terms of BIOS options, is without Prema even having this beast of a machine with him, if he has one, we would even see better tweaks/enhancements to the BIOS!

    Thank you in advance for your contribution, please help me on this project, even a small donation would count,

    @Mr. Fox @Papusan @bloodhawk @ssj92 @johnksss @Ethrem @Terrablade @EmberV

    Sweet!

    Also can we ban Prema from this thread? And have him let us know or secretly give us hints on what he wants as extras?. Will add a bit of surprise element for him lol. :p

    It's totally true. I'm heavily leaning towards @HIDevolution for my next purchase because of the Prema bios and service. You'll probably get an email from me later Phoenix.

    Thanks for being awesome @Prema!

    Although I love the idea, my question is timing. Specifically, when either the 1080 or 1080m is released (sli setup). Also, at computex they show the second version of this p870dm beast... if nothing else, i'd love to get the 1080x series gpus for him. This is something his input would help on. As for CPU, if waiting for the 1080/m release, then it is a question of getting the 4.8 silicon lottery 6700k or the kaby lake equivalent, so long as kaby lake isn't a sh1t stain like broadwell or if, for some reason, prema wants it for the extra cache rather than the raw mhz... we all know he'll want the 3200mhz ram and he's had his eye on that AUO 4k screen since it was first mentioned, before release. Obviously, whatever screen is selected, calibrated will have to happen. Also, he may want to get the AUO screen and install it himself. Will HID be discounting it because this is for prema?

    I think it's best to not make assumptions at this point. We know we have the base system from HIDevolution which is a great cost knocked off the total value of our gift! :D

    OP updated with current donations amount. Thank you people for you generosity and fast action.
