    Good afternoon my fellow modders and DDCM fans!

    Well, the build is complete as I promised this weekend. The only thing left to do is to get the final images edited and ready for submission. Hopefully, Gigabyte gets the submission error resolved on time.
    But until I get the final pictures ready, here’s some progress shots of the build up until now. Enjoy!

    Final reminder for the deadline which is tomorrow November 15, 11:59 PST.

    For those having trouble editing their profile on the Gigabyte mod2win website, the registration has been reopened so users can either resubmit a profile or leave a message here so I can forward to Gigabyte and they can re-open the account on their end.

    Love the vivid blue color in your build! Great job with all the customization!

    No more large full tower cases for me. These mid-tower cases look easier to work with in terms of weight and size.

    I am always envious of folks who can plan and execute their builds accordingly. I am always so scatterbrained that I would always end up with a different result than the initial plan. I really enjoyed following your build logs and see the result from the conception. Thank you very much for participating and I'm looking forward to see how your Project military build turns out as well. Good luck in the competition.

    Yeah I will say the midtower was easier except when it came to really squeezing things in. The PSU shroud was the hardest thing to install after having the front fans in place. But overall it was nice working in the smaller space. All my mods up to this point have been full towers, for the exception of my first mod(window and exhaust fan) about 14 years ago. Cases have definitely evolved quite a bit since then.

    Thanks Ron!

    I definitely stuck to my concept for sure, which I'm glad I did. There were some ideas through the modding process that changed a few things, and if you look back to the first posts you notice my 3D models changed a couple times. The thing to remember is how many hours of changes and rearranging and new ideas during the initial concept stage, before I am confident enough in my design to post it for all my modding friends to view. When doing my concept I take into account materials on hand or easily accessible. Additionally, I am super aware of my skills while creating the concept haha. I will have to say I think I gained a bit of skill during this mod.

    Update 11/22/16


    Good morning DDCM fans!

    So this is the final update, unless I win of course. Below, I have put together a couple Before/After shots of the case. I did this so I have a reminder of exactly how much work I put into the case. I figured since I put them together, I would share with my followers as well.

    Additionally, the fan favorite voting has opened up. You can vote for multiple builds once each day. If you liked my build, I ask that you show your support and vote. Thank you.
