"Honey.... what's all this crap doing on our dining table?!!" mad.gif
"I don't know what you're talking about, all I see is beautiful hardware." biggrin.gif



Went for a low key 2-tone theme with a Gunmetal 280 Flex-Bay. To mount the eLoops, I used some Acousti Ultra Soft Anti-Vibration Fan Mounts AFM02B. They are amazingly soft and I hope to get good vibration isolation for a quiet rig. These will be used where ever possible when mounting an eLoop is concerned.

You need one of these 60mm custom reservoir mounts for your S8S build. So beautiful, I'm ordering one in silver tomorrow, going to fill it with Mayhem's Extreme White.

When I find a new part that is absolutely beyond amazing, I just HAVE to share. (even though I just broke curfew) redface.gif

NEW Part Alert!

It's so beautiful! smile.gif

That reservoir mount made by Singularity Computers is very nice indeed, will last you life time.
The guy is very detailed with his builds so you can expect his product will be nothing less but the best quality thumb.gif

How much does a build log cost anyways? I mean life-wise? Is it truly expensive? blushsmiley.gif

I feel honoured to have @iBruce grace my log with his presence - S8S buddies! thumb.gif

For the time being, I will be working on dialing in some preliminary overclocks on air and test for stability. Once those numbers are in, I will proceed to slapping on blocks and running acrylic lines. tongue.gif

Thanks everyone for the support, lets see some more S8S's! wink.gif
