The shiny vs matte really makes those pipes pop. Maybe that's what you're going for, I don't know, but that was just something I noticed. But seriously, great work.
Do you consider these pictures "final"? I know you've got some more work planned, and don't wanna nominate anyone for anything they don't wanna be nominated for, if you catch my drift
(BABEH? stubborn indeed!)
Hey mate! Thanks
Still no baby... Still waiting!
I had thought about the pipes not matching the aluminium, but this does not bother me. I wouldn't want to try to make it the same finish either, as indigo explained, because I suspect that the heat pipes are thin, and wouldn't tolerate sanding.

Thanks mate. It is finished for at least a couple of months, but then at that point I might have the motivation to do a complete new build. Who knows?

Who needs side panels when you have this in your pc?! Let it go "commando"
Thanks Dangur! I am thinking about leaving the PC open at all times. I want to do some temperature testing, with and without the side panels on. I think that I might get better temps because of the more focused flow, and the flow of air not being deflected away from the GPU's by the PCI-e cables. If I get better temps with the side panels on, than I am considering buying some smoked plexi and makeing a side panel, among other things...

thin, any attempt to do this will result in removing the nickel plating and I believe the pipes are actually copper.

How are the temps of the two DCII GTX 670s?
Thank you fun! I really enjoyed this build for the most part.
Temps on the GPU's are something that I was expecting, but was not wanting.. And that is higher temps on the GPU which is sitting highest. There is a temp difference of around 15c under load, and 7-8 idle.
Once again, thanks everyone for following my build. Stay tuned for more pictures within the next 24 hours!
