My Aquacomupter GTX 680 block has arrived. [SECOND HAND]



Time to open it up and see how bad is it.





Judging from the oxidation, I might have to replate it...

I do like the Aquacomupter acrylic glass edition, so i decided to make one and off to the lasercutter.

Just got the top acrylic block for the 680. Cut out from a 8mm thick acrylic.

I let the pictures do the talking.

Screwed all the screws, a perfect fit. All is left to try it and check for leaks.



At the same time I started doing my motherboard tray.

Finish the the motherboard removable tray. Decided to go 5mm acrylic to that I can see through the casing with all the beautiful parts.

After laser cutting, checked will it block the locking mechanism.





Cut the motherboard tray.


Decided to add another 2 more hole to make the tray more sturdy.


Finish assemble the motherboard tray. Did another test fit to see how much space i have behind the motherboard tray.



To my amazement, i got almost 3cm of space, another crazy idea have start popping into my head. Stay tune for next update.
