Hell NO! Lawyer is taking care of that.

Besides, I got a great deal on a Tumble Weed Farm out in Alaska and will use the $6000 for that.

I thought my experience with Dell was bad?
These guys make Dell look like PC Gods!! And I really mean that, went through THREE XPS 720 H2C's and got a full refund at the end of it all, no lawyer needed.

Yes, exactly DarthBeavis! I talked with an HP Care Specialist today who forwarded my request to the proper department.

It would still be a sealed system but fitted for the perfect upgrade for my system.
to save even more money, I could buy two EVGA 280 55nm cards when they come out and attach them to the water blocks and do the easy upgrade in a matter of a couple of days.
This will be the only way for me to even enjoy my HP BlackBird 002 for what it really is and that's it for it. If HP doesn't elect to offer such for it's loyal customer base then I'm going back to building my own custom second water cooled computer. It won't be cheap but the system will come in Tri-SLI Infact, I may consult with you to build it for me the proper way if we have to go that route. I'll know more by the end of August 2008 I also know you get alot of parts in so maybe we can work something out on price. Thanks!!!

So much for all their talk about "off the shelf parts" so the user can easily upgrade. FFS!

Well, if you have any questions or need help when the time comes, give me a shout.

Work through email and pics or fly me out there for a few.

Really though, let me know.

I talked to another HP care specialist the other day and the HP rep said just be very patient as there is something going on or in development for current HP BlackBird owners who want upgrade options for their current HP Blackbirds. At least this is good news for me because I want the combo water cooled cpu and dual SLI water blocks revisioned for the NVIDIA GTX 280 55nm cards coming out soon. I'm sure HP/Voodoo PC will use the same waterblocks from the NVIDIA GTX 280 65nm cards on the NVIDIA GTX 280 55nm cards. I will just buy two EVGA 280 55nm cards once there out or wait for HP/Voodoo PC to give the word on when I can buy the sealed revised unit for my upgrade. By then I'll use a new motherboard and memory to complete my upgrade.

Step 1. Ebay + HP Blackbird 002 = more cash then payed.
Step 2. Build a mean rig and put the rest back into savings.

DarthBeavis, now that I've promoted you on the HP/Voodoo PC forums, you've gained the attention from HP/Voodoo PC's very own Rahul Sood!!!

Rahul Sood is the Chief Technology Officer for the Hewlett Packard Global Voodoo Business Unit. In 2007 Business 2.0 magazine had claimed Sood to be 83rd out of 101 persons on their "Who matters now?" Sood has led the development of technologies such as fanless PC technology, liquid cooling and active liquid chilling and was the first to bring them to market in the high-performance computing industry!
