We finish mounting the water-cooling hardware and work on a eyecandy-laden feature in the latest part of our scratchbuilt project...

I like what you are doing with this Antony, your first scratch build done with normal tools showing to anyone who might doubt themselves that modding & scratch building is average Joe compatible without spending copious amounts of money & this what you are doing is far better than my first effort like most if not all first time scratch builders these days.

When I say this I am definitely not joking.


This was my feature piece, the great snake pit of awesomeness.


See, & if someone said it was ugly I'd totally agree with them... Now... But back then I was pretty pleased with it indeed with it being my first, I just figured I could do better so persisted spending a little longer on each one but without that first one I simply wouldn't be doing what I do now & same or similar can be said for anyone who does this.

And yes that includes pro's of any level once upon a time they had to build skills doing something, just so happens it plays awesome to modding also.

Think it took me an astonishingly long week to do this first scratch build, I had no patience back then.

Thanks Waynio! TBH, you had the harder project by far for your first scratchbuild - acrylic is so much easier to work with. I think I'd probably have cried by now if I'd used any more metal than I have already and considering you mainly use hand tools and scroll saws for your works of art - that's just amazing!

But yeah, I wanted to make this project using little more than a Dremel and a heat gun to make sure the whole project costs as little as possible and needs just basic tools to make. I guess I've spent around 40 on materials so far and the rest has been scavenged. Not including the cooling gear of course - you'd have to buy that with any new PC. I've been impressed with how much you can achieve for relatively little cash (compared to a high end case for example). Looking forward to finishing it though!
