I think I may be exaggerating a little bit redface.gif in all honesty, I don't think it is 2-3MM think.

See above ^^^ If you would like, you are more than willing to come see the computer in person this weekend when I tear it down (again) and I can show you how it is put together and everything.

What do you guys think about those backplates??? That was the surprise I mentioned earlier biggrin.gif I traced the original backplates onto a sheet of aluminum and then cut them out with a jigsaw, filed the edges and had them powder coated orange. Then, I had the original backplates powder coated matte black and looks awesome I think. I'd like to see what you guys think as well! thumb.gif

Enjoy!

This is a great looking mod, kind of sad to see it end. But good luck with the LD case. thumb.gif

I'll finish it up before I sell it! Lol I've been thinking about ways to complete it.

What do you guys think about this for the top 360MM radiator? I would also get one made for the dual 80MM fan in the back because I think they look kind of cool!

*EDIT* Or this one?

I personally think it's fine up top the way it is... but if I had to vote... I'd go with the second one (Phobya).

Thanks for your vote! Too bad nobody else voiced their opinion frown.gif oh well lol. I think I'm going to go with the Primochill one honestly, I REALLY like the look of it and I think it would work well with the case. I'll purchase that tomorrow. Woot! Going to purchase that grill tomorrow, a Canon Rebel EOS T3i, and a 50mm prime lens from a user on OCN.

Just bought an EVGA GTX 580 with an EK Nickel/Plexi block and black backplate for MurderMac when I sell it. Going to throw some Ice Dragon in there with 1/2in barbs and clear 7/16in tubing. Should look awesome!

So change of heart?

I like the first grille too, but would rather it have countersunk hex crews instead of the regular ones.

Just going to finish MurderMac up properly before I sell her thumb.gif I like the screws they used too lol. It doesn't come with any mounting hardware but I'm going to go see if I can find those type of screws at the hardware store and get all matching screws.
