The MSI Rig Modding Reloaded 2017

The MSI Rig Modding Reloaded 2017 was one of the favorite booths during the ESGS 2017 last Oct. 27-29. This event allows the best modders from all over the country to show off their hard work and their craftsmanship. We are lucky to be able to cover this event and meet the legendary modders of the Philippines in person.

Here are the winners of the modding competition:

1ST Place: Mark Van Acosta  – “Poseidon”

Admittedly, we fell in love with this rig by Mark Von Acosta, the color combination, cable management, and tubing, everything is just really perfect.

2nd Place: Sam Callanta – “Innocence”

The DIY chassis of this rig is really beautiful. Also, the black and white theme is spot on.

3RD Place: Homer Dikitanan – “Project Eknaw”

This rig has one of the best DIY RGB and fan controller we’ve seen. Also, the orientation of the GPU is very unique.


Here are the other finalists of the modding competition:

Our very own Teknigaming host, Mark Cruz with his “Project Ronin”

“Caution” by Jermyl Salas

Personally, I really like this rig, the NZXT H440 is one of my all-time favorite chassis.

The ESGS 2017 also allowed us to meet the members of Rigs Unlimited PH. For people who don’t know what RUPH is, it’s a Facebook group where people share their rigs and knowledge to other members and it’s also a perfect group to meet other PC Enthusiasts. We hope to see more awesome mods in ESGS 2018. See you next year guys!
