Wanted to share a couple more pictures I took =D

Don't want that caricature Nils drew go to waste lol


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, my twins arrived the other day so I took a picture of them before going to work

Min being an ass again insisting on inspecting every package that arrives.

When I got home from work I opened them, to my surprise they sent me different models:

the one on the left is ZT-90101-10P and is listed as being compatible with the EK-FC970 water block, the one on the right, however -> ZT-90105-10P, is not, gonna take a closer look at the back of the PCBs later and see if they are identical.

They're both 4gb, the only difference between the are the clock speeds (which are minimal) they both cost the same, around $345, I think.

Here are a couple more shots of the one with a non-reference cooler:

Of course, Min just has to make an appearance XD



The obligatory "gut" shot.

I'm getting psyched with all the new toys, so near Christmas too lolz.

Hopefully by next week I would have finished the mod plans, see ya!

^ Yes it is, I've had that case for a while now, I bought it for the build that got destroyed by rain.

Debated with myself whether to just go with another case or stick with it. In the end I decided to stick with the TJ11. It may not be as elegant as the TJ07, but I still like it more =)

The paint on the non-windowed panel is in bad shape, it also suffered a couple of nips where the paint has come off, exposing the silver color of the aluminum underneath. I'm contemplating whether to restore it or repaint it completely (to black again), or to go with another color.

I'll post the pictures in a couple of days showing its condition now.

Funny thing is, I've been watching your build for a while now, and your work on those water blocks has given me inspiration (because the damned EK-FC bridge only comes WITH circles and all the other water blocks (the one for the GPUS, motherboard, ram, and the CPU block) have no circles on 'em.

That's it for today and wish me luck because I'll be inspecting those GPUs to see if they have the same PCB *fingers crossed*

I'd like to leave you all with a little bit of ear candy (and eye candy actually) *warning: the vid involved lots of neon colors and may induce epilepsy*

I just love the colors in this vid, which gives you an idea why I chose those sleeve colors. Enjoy!
