Hi all and welcome to the Mod Fusion AA, before we begin let me tell you about the idea behind this mod. One of xtremes members of staff (Archer) is talented when it comes to art and quite a while ago created some of the best hand etches I have seen in some time.

While I was pondering on ideas AMD went all out and bought ATi, which sort of decided the mod idea for me, A AMD and ATi inspired design was the way to go and we wanted to be sure it represented the fusion of AMD and ATi, hence the name of the mod FUSION AA!

The idea was born and it was just a case of deciding what case route to go down, when Archer suggested we use a UV case so a full size etch could be done, we tried in vain to get a new UV case from one of the few manufactures that still offer them, but it was a no go,  Oh dear… then it hit me, we still have an old one with quite and old etch, so a quick email was sent to none other than A.C Ryan of course to ask if they would be interested in sponsoring Fusion AA by supplying some panels.

Once we had confirmed we could get these in the plan begun and it was time to source out the hardware for the project so here is a list of what we managed to get
