Thanks for the comments guys, some of them clearly written by comedy geniuses! Haha me and my GF had a laugh
to answer a few Q's no, she doesnt make cakes full time, just once a year
she just has amazing attention to detail and knows how much I wanted a 290x. Yes, she is a keeper!
and no, unfortunately she doesn't have an available sister
I was gutted to cut into the cake but after a few days of it sitting with a halo above it on the kitchen counter, it was either cut it and eat it or leave it to rot and bin it anyway!
So to follow I will post some 'under the hood' pictures of the 'cooler' itself
I did try a pinochio style method to turn it into a real card but as of yet, it still just causes a BSOD when I try it on my Maximus VI Formula......
