Thread: ECS Modmen Case Mod Entry Fire & Ice

  1. #1

    XFX Fire & Ice

    Well I had a little time between Lan parties and Builds ( still waiting for one to come back) 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?
