jj_sky5000 has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
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?

Side view of the side panel


Molds are ready



Am I making cookies or a case mod you decide

Wait. This is a new one? I saw it over on ModZoo and thought you were adding an older log. -Senility sucks.
I like the idea of adding plexi to cast. will you be gluing/fusing it?

Wow this is really beginning to look incredible! I love the idea of wrapping the reservoir around the components themselves, very novel, it's also a pretty ballsy move so good luck. The ice effect from the resin is really striking.
