Not really a mirror finish but it will be on the inside and it is flat enough to be mounted later on, now I'll upload the pictures and post them in an hour(or however long it takes this time) thumb.gif

I will be ordering new stuff I need soon so annoying that a pump I was planning on ordering kept going out of stock.
Quit a bit of work coming up as I will have a acrylic block to mill, vile and polish.
I also found the front radiator making contact with the graphic card's pcb on a solder joint so I either have to put some anti conductive glue there or a extra layer of lacquer.

I will also be getting 2x 8GB of vengeance DDR3 1600 so-dimms

There are smaller rigs but not really in terms off power the mac mini server can come very close in terms of cpu power yet lacks a dedicated gpu.
Zotac and Asrock's dedicated boxes pack a simple gpu and a simple cpu which will yet give you not the performance you would get from a full scale system.
I want a small system that can do all that my old rig could. biggrin.gif

Finally the acrylic plate is ordered and it was a steal.
However non paypal bank transfer to Germany are a pain I had to refill the order 3x to get the cross-border security off.
I bought only a single small plate so I shouldn't ruin it, it is is a piece of 200x250x20(mm) it was the thickest block available at least for a decent price remember acrylic is like 20x the price of POM or other junk plastics.
It is solid high gloss acrylic which can be plolished to shine and yes this is going to be 10x the work you need to lap a cpu to mirror shine level but totally worth it in the end.
With other companies a piece of 30mm same size would cost me like 150 euro the thought of ruining it would kill me of already.

As soon as I have the plate the final result will make more sense.
I know the milling and polishing is going to be a pain yet I really look forward to it.
