    a scrap build in progress
    materials that will be used in this project will be most of all from scrap
    or can be found just around my house

    reasons for this project is lack of budget and
    to increase my skills being a modder.


    This project is named CIR (Comeback Is Real)
    because i failed my 500R build because of my GPU's
    breakdown, now i am still waiting for it.

    fabricated another part from an old roof lying around :)
    supported by some rivets and hex bolts


    this setup really needs a fully modular PSU
    i hope i can afford one


    I used Dremel 3000 for the most of my modding with a EZ lock bit and a THIN CUT blade

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Just a heads up, I think you typo'd your project title.
    ...and you should put clothes on when you photograph stuff.:worried:

    Click the edit button in the first post, then click the 'go advanced' button. The title option is in there.

    Slightly off-topic so apologies, I noticed on your patreon page that you're from the Philippines, I'm half Filipino and am going to visit relatives in November, what are hardware prices like there? If it's any cheaper I might buy some things to bring back to the UK!
