[Build Log] Beginner's Luck - X79 Build - Page 21

Oh, also wanted to mention- if you drink wine somewhat often, and you or your significant other don't like washing the wine glasses afterwards (or they break often) - this is one of the best products I have found in my lifetime.

Schott Zwiesel Titanium crystal wine glasses.

They are tough to break (you can knock it over on a granite counter and it doesn't break), they sound like perfect crystal (because they are crystal), and they are not lead-based (titanium), so no lead leaching.

Also, no need to clean, just chunk them in the dishwasher, and they come out PERFECT every time. No cloudiness, no dulling, ever. They are the real deal, and I recommend them head and shoulders above Riedel to everyone I know.

I actually found them while eating at Cafe Diva in Steamboat Springs while skiing there one year. (Also that place has awesome food).

http://www.amazon.com/Schott-Zwiesel-Stemware-Collection-13-6-Ounce/dp/B00284AIQ2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355030945&sr=8-2&keywords=schott+zwiesel

Here they are, on sale smile.gif

Also, check the prices vs Riedel. 58 bucks for 6 vs god knows what for the high-end riedel set.

Lol. Sound like you may not have seen the videos yet. They are worth watching. Search "Sweet Brown" on youtube and take a quick listen.

Been wanting to do this, but... how did Lutr0 do this? Must have removed sticker via heat gun, removed soldered wires, sleeve said wires, re-solder wires, apply new sticker.
Am I missing something here, or is there an easier way to do this. Maybe I will just sleeve up to a certain point, since noone will see it anyway, but these look nice.
Not real sure what you are asking? I wouldn't take the fan apart to sleeve it, except some fans have those little clips on the frame that hold the wire, I take those off while I'm sleeving. I try to push the shrink on the end of the sleeve as far down toward the solder points as I can, though.

Interesting. May be a bigger fan here. I sleeved up to the solder point on the ap15 And had a difficult time closing the clip around the sleeving.

Chris, i figured i was missing something there... I will have to take a look, but not sure i want to... Haha

Also, the loop looks great! It's really pretty hard to get a perfect looking loop without actually having all the different possible fittings at your disposal *ahem cpachris*. I managed to figure a good loop, though at the expense of quite a few leftover fittings. Just more of an excuse to wc another build?! thumb.gif

Heh, can't wait to show the new loop. It looks awesome, blows the other one away imo. And yes, I will take a picture of the hundreds upon hundreds of dollars of fittings that won't be used in the build. Hopefully someone needs to buy some? smile.gif

I'll need to check out your build, I feel like a Jedi Master now after getting one under my belt (crystal link wise). It is certainly a learning experience for sure. thanks for stopping by!

Edit:- Yes, I have seen your build before, it blew my mind, I have my eye on it smile.gif
