I'm looking forward to it.

I'm planning on using the vent style on my next build. Love that concept.

NV_GF_GTX_preferred_badge_FOR_WEB_ONLY1.png

EKWB.jpg

Update!!!

To start with I have placed the EK bayres to see how it looks

DSC09696.jpg

DSC09695.jpg

DSC09698.jpg

Installing the pump onto the bayres

DSC09920.jpg

DSC09921.jpg

Small tutorial about this

DSC09922.jpg

DSC09925.jpg

DSC09926.jpg

Time for the Nvidia GTX680

NV_GTX_680_646x94_banner_REV2_ENpsd1.jpg

DSC09797.jpg

DSC09798.jpg

Also made a tut for placing the EK-FC680 onto the Nvidia GTX680

Don't wanna see the vid!!! Thank god we still have pictures wink.gif

Removed the plastic

DSC09799.jpg

DSC09800.jpg

DSC09801.jpg

DSC09802.jpg

Also removed the block

DSC09803.jpg

DSC09804.jpg

Dismantled the bracket

DSC09805.jpg

DSC09809.jpg

The EK block

DSC09755.jpg[IMG]DSC09812.jpg

DSC09815.jpg

First cleaning up the GPU

DSC09816.jpg

Placed pads and compound

DSC09819.jpg

Mounted the EK block

DSC09820.jpg

Also installed the EK-FC link

DSC09822.jpg

DSC09824.jpg

DSC09828.jpg

DSC09831.jpg

DSC09832.jpg

DSC09834.jpg

And backplate

DSC09836.jpg

DSC09830.jpg

Second GPU finished

DSC09850.jpg

DSC09853.jpg

DSC09840.jpg

DSC09842.jpg

DSC09844.jpg

DSC09845.jpg

DSC09853.jpg

Connected all together with the EK-FC Bridge Dual Serial

DSC09855.jpg

DSC09856.jpg

DSC09860.jpg

And offcourse....placed it right away

DSC09863.jpg

DSC09871.jpg

DSC09873.jpg

DSC09862.jpg

DSC09874.jpg

Made a minor adjustment into the CPU cooler. Placed LEDs for a nice effect, bright Alien eyes

DSC09613.jpg

DSC09614.jpg

DSC09615.jpg

DSC09618.jpg

I was still searching regards the radiator recesses on both sides. Here's the first idea.
Playing with some mesh and air outlets

DSC09625.jpg

DSC09626.jpg

DSC09624.jpg

DSC09622.jpg

But no...didn't like this.
So cut an aluminium strip, bended a lot of vents and assembled

DSC09640.jpg

DSC09643.jpg

DSC09644.jpg

DSC09646.jpg

DSC09647.jpg

DSC09650.jpg

DSC09651.jpg

DSC09653.jpg

Made it black

DSC09681.jpg

DSC09687.jpg

DSC09688.jpg

Next ..... The Nvidia Logo should come back. Therefore I made ​​a little cover where the Nvidia logo is displayed.

DSC00223.jpg

Like this

DSC00229.jpg

DSC00231.jpg

DSC00226.jpg

DSC00225.jpg

Frosted the piece

DSC00235.jpg

DSC00234.jpg

Just to see how it will look I cut out the name by hand.
This is NOT the final logo, soon there will be a better one (with Nvidia claw)

DSC00238.jpg

To give this a bright shine, I have used a piece of glowpad

DSC00242.jpg

DSC00244.jpg

DSC00243.jpg

Placed a small piece

DSC00237.jpg

DSC00239.jpg

DSC00240.jpg

For the cables, I cut out a recess

DSC00246.jpg

DSC00248.jpg

This will no longer be seen through the cover

DSC00250.jpg

And another recess for the remaining connections mobo

DSC00251.jpg

And a recess for the GPU power. Bottom PCI-e power is tight, but possible

DSC00257.jpg

DSC00258.jpg

DSC00254.jpg

And last... Busy again with acrylic tube

DSC09931.jpg

DSC09932.jpg

After some measuring, Made 2 holes ​​for the fill ports

DSC00260.jpg

DSC00266.jpg

DSC00267.jpg

DSC00268.jpg

DSC00271.jpg

DSC00265.jpg

That's it for this weekend wink.gif To be continued!
