    Hi.

    Now its my turn to show my scratch build, please come with questions and criticism on the way

    For those who are familiar with Mod Men Show, will probably recognize it, its quite similer to their stratch build, but I fell in love with it, and wanted to make one myself:)
    The basic design is similar to theirs, but changed things here and there, to put my own stamp on it:)

    Everything is made ​​by hand or with manual machines, so no CNC equipment is used.:dremel:

    Spec.

    material: MDF, plexi, stainless steel, nylon,

    Hardware:
    Asus Gene-z
    Samsung 128GB SSD
    8gb Kingston RAM
    Zotac AMP2 580 3GB
    Intel i5 2500K

    Water cooling:
    2xSingle radiator
    XSPC raystorm cpu cooling head
    EK gtx580 block
    innovatek tube
    Laing DDC pump
    XSPC Laing DDC Reservoir Top
    Feser fittings

    Here is a rough drawing of the project, perhaps some things get changed underway:worried:

    The first steps

    4 pieces of 20mm MDF glued together and milled out with a router from a template, i made out of some thinner wood, However, it still remains some holes:)

    that's all for now, hope you like it:)

    Love that mobo, but your camera makes the ROG redness a bit too orange. Maybe play around with the white balance (if possible in your camera), or post process the pics?

    Also: "The Mod But Show"? I'm pretty sure I never heard about that one - is it a secret, parallel show to the "Mod Men Show"? Perhaps the bloopers reel? ;)))))
