Nahhhhhh, its not just a teaser, I have more pics :ass:









i'm still in panning mode and need to chose coolant/sleeving mode

my sleeving will be white with color accent

but I have 2 color
first Yellow Sand

the only issue is the coolant, im sure its possible to have this color with yellow , orange, red and blue dye

the second, sure , RED

no issue with collant, maybe Feser pure red or Blood red





UPDATE: Finally choose Red, next Build will be Yellow sand



little work on fan

I want to know the result of little idea I have in my head with the fan and I think the results is really great






Corsair need to release these fan in white

what do you think?

these or Bitfenix specter pro red led?




new toys at my door

need to polish all my water block but before need to take some pics for a Before/after comparison



all block with backplate
yes I know. some of you say" why not just buy clean version, nope, I want same theme on all blocks

wet sanding with 2000 sand paper and use Meguiar's Ultimate Compound

no need a lot of sanding just a couple of minutes on each side
and polish with compound, this steps need more time

this guy don't use wet sanding, it work but more easy with water and you will not fill your sanding paper with residue
i use one strip of sanding paper of 3" x 8.5" for all my block
