XFX Fire & Ice
Well I had a little time between Lan parties and Builds ( still waiting for one to come back) I decide to give it a go in the ECS Modmen competition, ECS Custom Case I had this concept before in 2009 and after a few complete ice mods I was ready to attempt to build it. The build will be called Fire & Ice, making the case from liquid resin and trying to use a least amount of metal possible with a waterfall reservoir.
I purchased the ECS model P67H2-A2 Deluxe
I like to thank my sponsors for supporting my projects over the years.
A have a long way to go and a short time frame, Do you think i can make it?
wtf.. a 7x3 tray of Intel CPU?
build this or I'll drunkenstyle beat myself up...
First thing is getting my layout on The board that i will be using for my mold and double checking measurements.
adding 2 by 4 and attaching them with screws from the back
getting a 3d visual in my mind ,
Side view of the side panel
