MSI Vortex case mod

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So I applied for the MSI Vortex mod contest and somehow got chosen to participate. 8 contestants have til july 14th at PDXLAN to mod a MSI Vortex case. no hardware involved. I figured I would share my progress. I wasn't even gonna be able to do the contest due to lack of funds but a friend of mine talked to a facebook group about it and the group ended up raising money for me to get the supplies/etc i will need to do the mod!!! So between that and the fact that this is my first contest...i am super nervous lol..but....here we go...first a look at the case itself..

Nice mesh insertion! Wondering what's going to go into big holes smile.gif

How's the case rigidity holding up?

stay tuned to find out! the case is made of metal and has plastic on the back side for added strength. it is remarkably sturdy still.
