One of my great friend has lend me his graphic card for use first meanwhile I'm funding for my GPU and other stuff. Since the GPU is still quite okay for me to use at the moment, I will buy the H100i first. Most likely will be arriving next Friday. ^^ Will upload pics later

So here I was having a GTX460 Purple in Colour, so I tried painting it but it somehow went wrong. The paint somehow went underneath the masking tape I used. frown.gif

So I had to paint it entirely in white. But it end up okay I guess, my friend told me I should add another layer of coating too.


Here is how it look in the 250D.

The Cable Management:
Not the best but I'll try better. Its non-modular tho frown.gif

My Pumps and Res has arrived today. biggrin.gif
Had to do some cleaning for the res as it was plagued by plasticizer residue. Using multiple method, the liquid dishwasher + rice method works best. biggrin.gif

Sorry for the late update. My water cooled 250D Build is now almost half way! biggrin.gif
Rads arrived today and I started assembled it.




One of the problem you will face when installing a rad thicker than 25mm. This small hook here will prevent u from slotting it down properly unless u use force or cut it off.



Need to find some screw to place in the rad as I can't use the rad in the inside area.


Here is how the loop look like


And now running leak test for 24 Hour.




Might spray these into silver or leave it as it is. smile.gif




Next Update will be White Tubings, Corsair H55 Mod and a NZXT G10 and most importantly X-Res
