Neh, depinning would have been a b*tch. The cables are all black underneath the sleeves, so that's a no go for me smile.gif

Indeed, I forgot to add that to the to-do list:
- Making the tubes on the H100 and Antec 620 copper-colored and matching somehow.

Edit: added this to the to-do list in the previous post

It apears my shipment came in today after all. My roommates just put it on a weird spot tongue.gif. I was a bit stupid in ordering just one fan grill. But what can I do, I only thought about putting them on the Cougars after I ordered.

Here are the pics:

Cable Clips / Copper VGA-ram Heatsinks / White Dual LED's

Fan Grill Black / Temp. Display Orange

Since the system is running anyway, I couldn't help but start OC-ing. It's running at 4.4 GHz right now, and for now it's going to stay there. To achive 4.5GHz, I had to go up alot on the voltage and it increased CPU temps by about 10 degrees. It was still very well within the temp limits at that point, but since I don't really need the CPU power right now, I settled for more efficiency thumb.gif. The H100 was running on low settings all the time.

I got the memory up to 2133Mhz, from 1600. Timings went up to 10-11-10-27 from 9-9-9-24. I might be able to go to 10-11-10-26, but the rest is as low as it gets.

Here is a screenshot of 12 hours Prime-stable:


(Sorry about the creepy eyes ^^)

Edit: In the screenshot it's running at 100.2 Mhz bus speed. For some reason it was set to that after opening T-Overclocker (utility provided by Biostar). Which I didn't use after all.
After a reboot it was set back to the normal 100.0 Mhz.

THIS BUILD ROCKS! I love computers, and I love firefly, so that's pretty much that. I think you did a great job getting the lighting to emulate the "engine room glow." Perhaps for a future build, you could watercool and actually run copper pipes between the components. B NEGATIVE has a quick summary on how it's done here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1280153/pipe-bending-101

He made some copper piped builds in a style which I think would go great with what you're making. Just food for thought. Keep up the awesomeness!

Cheers mate!

I love it when people are enthusiastic about my build biggrin.gif. Get's me in the right spirit to make it even better wink.gif. Just applied to the official C70 owner's club, since it was about damn time I did!

Edit: A watercooling-loop was a bit to expensive at the moment, but I see a bright future for me and the real stuff. thumb.gif

Update:
just ordered 2 more black fan grills and another set of copper vga-ram heatsinks, since one set won't be enough. They turned out a bit smaller then expected.

Got the last of my ordered stuff in today smile.gif. Now I'm able to mount the Antec 620 onto the GFX-card this weekend thumb.gif

Hi everyone!

I'm still waiting for the backplate... This delayed the mounting of the antec 620 onto the GFX-card. So the pics for that will have to wait unfortunately.

I'm maybe thinking of painting the backplate with copper-paint, but i'm not sure at all if that would turn out nicely. I could also paint the mounting-bracket instead, and leave the backplate black...
What do you guys think?

Any opinion will be appreciated thumb.gif

Imo, you should paint the mounting bracket copper since it would be a nice contrast between the black backplate and antec cooler. If you know what I mean... thumb.gif

Edit: just reread this and realized it sounds kinda dirty o.0
