I couldn't be more excited to tell you guys that EKWB are on board with PARVUM LIGHTNING. When i've figured out which door the mail man will be coming to I will set up camp right behind it, awaiting a huge shipment of clean CSQ acetal epicness.

Currently I have a pair of FC-780 LIGHTNING blocks which I found at OCUK and hopefully two more are incoming from a completely 110% legit looking Italian eBay store as they were discontinued by EK. I cannot wait for the next update, if I don't get rinsed by the Italians!

Subbed for 4x Lightnings. I love how the Lightings look, never owned one but it sure would be nice as I am considering it for a future build project.

Don't worry it's not dead, we just let it take a rest until after a big show over here. I'm also waiting for MDPC-X to return amongst other things. Now it's time to collect hardware until the case can be finalized and cut.

Quad Lightning Kepler power FTW!

Man, I can't wait until this is done!
I'm suprised this isn't super popular already.

Finally I have managed to scrape together 4 GTX780 Lightning blocks! from retailers that I never knew existed in various corners of Europe. ...yes I do know this is only 3, I may have got impatient and installed one already ^_^

Also just a couple of other things from EK.

Quite possibly not enough fittings, because, you can't have enough fittings!

64.jpg

Impatience struck for a second time and I may have unboxed everything without taking any pictures along the way.

...because Acetal.

EK, how did you know, all of my favourites <3

Just because they weren't quite black enough already I also got some cover kits for the D5's to make them extra clean.

I was really torn whether to use a power delivery block on the motherboard or not. On the one hand I wanted it to be as extreme as possible but retaining the XPOWER identity was also really important to me.

Luckily this revision allowed half of the stock heatsink to be refitted. Although it doesn't make contact with any components visually it completes the board for me.

I'm really pleased with how balanced the board looks with the blocks fitted, it will be orientated in the build as it is here inverted. I've consciously kept the EK logo's upside down so the board as a whole looks right. I won't invert every logo in the build, but to me this just seems right.

Huge thanks to EKWB! I can't wait to get all 4 Lightnings blocked up.
