Quick little mod today thumb.gif

Got in an EVGA SLI Bridge Pro V2 and I decided to give it a lighting to make it match the gold theme and I gave the body piece a black chrome finish





Should fit the rest of the build better than the stock. Haven't decided if I want to put the nVidia sticker back on it or not, but leaning towards not

So, I have found a plating service that will be doing a black nickel finish on the copper tubing. It should match the EK Black Nickel angle fittings pretty closely.

Can't wait to see how that looks.

The SLI bridge came out looking great. I vote you leave the Nvidia sticker off it. Makes for a cleaner look.

No, I'm not using the 3.1 version, but pretty sure it's the same physical board size. There's a decent amount of room to spare in the case as well

Got the backordered parts in so I could build my res (will take picks later).

The mounting holes are just not quite lining up right and the output of the pump is ending up too close to the GPU to drop anything. So, I'm changing the plan a bit, but may make things cleaner anyway.

Going to run both inlet and outlet to the back of the case where I can use straight pieces to join tubes in the back of the case. I ordered one of the longer mounts for the res and will end up having the tube be part of the support. Seeing as I have metal tubing, that will be pretty short in length in these places, I feel pretty confident that it will support the weight just fine.

Also got a couple ek thread extenders to fit in the terminal block and rad recessed g1/4 taps so I can ensure no leaks in this places.

This should mean that the loop should be finished by next week. I'll then plan wiring and ship off the tube for plating.

Awesome!
Looking forward to seeing this build!
Thanks for the info.

Sorry for the delay, but just yesterday I got the parts in that I needed to finish the loop. Here's a pic of the res that is now mounted and the loop construction finished. I'll be sending the tube segments off for plating soon. The plating should match the finish of the angle fittings and the metal parts on the pump. I will be using mayhem's pastel sunshine yellow with some additional dye to try to match the fluid to the gold heatsinks




Next I will start planning the wiring and decide if I am going to do case lighting or not. Also, now that the paint has cured on the sli-bridge, I think I am going to have to redo it as it doesn't look as even as I thought it should...I'm also considering doing it as gold instead of the black chrome as I think the greyish looks weird next to the black terminal block
