Default 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?

Dont forget to go and vote!!!! 2 1/2 days left. ECS Custom Case I am pushing hard to finish it.
Adding the case fans!!!

I wanted to do something different and cut them out myself instead of using the large hole cutter.

trusting old craftmans scroll saw

Setting the blade through the pre drill holes

A little etching action

testing the LEPA fans

and the other side again cutting out the fan holes

Thanks again for taking a look.
