StreekG. I'm guessing you took the reactors off before painting? What paint did you end up using? Considering picking up one of these and would likely want to paint over the blue also.

Yep i removed the reactor cover first and I just used a gloss black spray, i would've used a matt finish paint if i had some lying around however.
It was just plastic paint that i had for some car parts that i sprayed black, so it was heat resistant.

There is a block available already for the lightning......Aquacomputers specifically made one after I asked them to and generated enough interest. You can grab them from sidewinderscomputers

Got my second lightning + ac block going today, thought id share my 3dmark 11 score with the two.

Both cards were at 1446mhz/7098mhz on a 2700k @ 5278mhz, all on water. Spat out a P19861 score. Going to try for more tomorrow morning when my room isnt a sauna!

you can grab them from the EU as well.

I'm not sure if Aquatuning has them but getting direct from Aquacomputers will also do the trick wink.gif

edit: they do. You might have to wait for some stock though

Yeah I saw that but its only in copper. I'd really like an EK block just to match all of my other blocks...

Can someone please explain the LN2 and normal bios difference to me ? (Late-bios') I'm so confused right now:)

Also it would be great if someone linked me to an overclocking guide for this beast. I didn't quite get what TDP does. Can i have it at max at all times? I have a 1000W PSU and my system probably uses 400-500W tops.
I've connected 8-pins directly from my PSU. Did not use 6-8 pin converters.

(In addition) What are the differences between the old and new unlocked LN2 bioses 80.04.09.00.F8 and 80.04.28.00.3A?
