Package from Taiwan.....
So...a few weeks ago I was doing some tinkering, and started wondering if some copper accents in my fittings might look nice. I sent Bitspower an email wondering if they might consider doing a custom copper plated batch for me, ....or sending me some fittings with no finish on them so I could have them plated somewhere else.
Vincent at Bitspower was quick to jump on this thought and offered to do them for me. Lo and behold....here they are:
I decided to start with a smallish batch of multi-link fittings (both C47 and C48) and some stop fittings. Thought they might be easy to work into my color scheme.
I haven't seen these anywhere before.....but the professional and normal product lables accompanied everything with an actual product code and everything. So....perhaps Bitspower is thinking about expanding their product line with a new finish? To be honest....I can't imagine why there are not more companies out there offering copper already. It goes with a lot of color themes, just because of the prevalence of copper blocks.
Here is the entire batch I ordered.....
...and now some closeups of each of the 3 types of pieces.
It appears to be an anodized finish instead of an actual copper plating....but I'm no expert so I can't be sure. The color is very close to the copper in my blocks....but maybe a tad more of gold in the color. Regardless...they look gorgeous. I'll be working these into some pictures as I swap blocks for the testing of the nateman_doo blocks. That is....assuming I can even get those installed.
