UPDATE - AND IT BEGINS....
As of the 20th, the remaining parts are on their way to me.. so this week everything should be completed which means this coming weekend is assembly time! So I've started working on some of the little finishing bits;
Both EK Backplates for the 970's are now white to better match the build.. while a heap of the hardware will remain black, these should help tie it all together a bit! Also changed up the MSI SLI Bridge to better match as well.
Took this opportunity to start refreshing the cards/blocks as well.. so while there are no photos (horrid days here lately) I pulled apart the blocks.. cleaned them and replaced all the thermal pads/compound.
I'll start flushing the rest of the loop components (radiators.. pump/res) this week so come this weekend, I'll be right to build build build!
Will head down to Powdercoaters during the week and check all is good.. I guess this is about the only factor that will stop it happening this weekend. I spoke to them last week though and said all was good.
So stay tuned and watch it all come together!
