Well I had a little time between Lan parties and Builds ( still waiting for one to come back) I 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.


Image

I purchased the ECS model P67H2-A2 Deluxe

Image

I like to thank my sponsors for supporting my projects over the years.
