Update 5 - Installing Blocks
Put the RAM and CPU blocks on their respective parts this weekend. Also filled the loop and turned it on only to discover it won't boot. So I have to take it all apart and find out why. Enjoy the pictures in the mean time.
Using some spare RAM since finding a sponsor for RAM is about as easy as finding a unicorn.
Plain packaging from EK for the Monarch modules.
About 30 seconds with a heat gun on low was enough to remove loosen the adhesive. Ewww ugly green PCBs.
Lining everything up.
Assembled! And yes, I did remove the protective stickers
did that with the remaining two modules and then threw them in the system.
No scratches at all!
Don't forget to always remove!
Tried some outdoor shots but they aren't the best. There is supposed to be a blanket of snow on the ground this time of year here but ya know, "weather." Instead, it's bright and sunny, when it's not raining that is.
Going to change loop order so I can flip the block around and have the EK logo facing the right way. Can't figure out how to remove the logo without scratching the hell out of the block.
Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures!
