Wow, that red looks unbelievable haha!

Thanks a lot for the pictures, now I know which reservoir I'm definitely getting!

It's so damn clean!

This one.

What you see in that last picture was one drop, heh.

Since I can't really spend any more for a few weeks and I needed a way to mount the pump and reduce vibrations at the same time I figured I'd cut up the stock foam pads that come with it.

Here's the idea illustrated with some crazy good MS paint skills.



I made two of these. They keep the pump completely decoupled from the case, so in theory any noise from vibration should be completely eliminated. In theory.. I suppose it's down to how good this material is. It'll do for now nonetheless.




It also gives me about an inch clearence to provide decent air flow for these 60mm fans.




If these pumps ever burn out I'll eat my hat. I swear.

Did some painting today. The head of every visible screw is now black, whew. My drive bay adapter is now also black.. double whew. That bare aluminum was horrible. Also sprayed the retention thumb screws on the EK Supreme HF black.. why would you pay extra for the already black kit? Camera was running very very low so not many pics. I'll take a lot more once I get my adapter back from the office.

Started work on installing blocks today on my Asus MIVE.



I do love this board






I bought the true 1155 backplate seperately and I have to say, I don't know what all the fuss is about EK's mounting system being hard or complicated. Was pretty straight forward really.

Backplate installed and retention clip reattached. I'm aware the springs go on top of the actual block but I thought it looked pretty neat like this for the pic






Full cover mobo block










No idea what happened to this pic.. I actually quite liked it.




Next up, GPU waterblocks.. at least they would have been if my TX6 head wasn't MIA. Very frustrating as I needed these installed tonight to get the measurements correct for drilling the pass-through fitting holes on the midplate. Gonna try a couple of local shops tomorrow but I'm pretty sure I'll need to order one...




I'll be trying to update this much quicker from now on. I expect to have this completed by next weekend at the latest.

I was getting around to it!

I managed to track down a torx T6 screwdriver locally.. unfortunately it was in a 40 piece kit and cost me £26.. I have all these other screwdrivers already too. Sigh.

I'm working on a rig for a friend at the same time. A little i7 860 machine with a GTX 275 and some nameless motherboard and RAM (bought it pre assembled a few years ago). Not that it's important.. just felt like sharing!
