-2 because that picture is terrifying.



alright, so +4 and -3 makes +1 to an update.

I have taken some pics, but my camera died about 4 pics in... so i switched to my phone and realised the pics where better than when i was using my actual camera.

If we can get to +4 for the update i will upload them despite them mostly being terrible quality

edit:

images are uploaded, just have to write the comments and make the post.

alright, it has been a long while since i have had a real update...

so first i have some pics of some parts i have been buying from members on the site over the last few months and have not shared:

first up is this MCR120:



and as you can tell it is in pretty rough shape, so it will soon get one of these treatments:



next up is an EK 240mm rad for the front of the case. I was very surprised at how much higher quality this rad seems than the 3 swiftech ones i have:



and the swiftech MCR220:



all of this is going to be in addition to my MCR320 I already have. ;-)



and i bought another s-flex G from a kind member:



And now for today's adventure!!!



I received my order from FrozenCPU, and when i saw the size of this box i got really excited.



and if the fact that it takes up my entire table is not enough for you to realize the size of that huge box here are some common objects for reference:



ok, so maybe they are just common to OCN members. :-P

I think richard and geoff have packed everything i have ever ordered from frozencpu.



and pulling out all but 2 items:



my velociraptor is getting hungry



and he stalks up to his first prey, two low profile stop fittings and a lonely g1/4" extension:



i don't think it is possible to overstate how good these matte black fittings look:



suddenly the raptor realizes why it isn't smart to pick on the babies



note the two 45 and two 90 degree rotaries in here. I have always been reluctant to use them because i feared they would leak, but after feeling how tight they are i don't think i have to worry about it...



got two more of these for the rad that is going in the bottom since you will be able to see the fans on that rad:



and the s-flex G from earlier out of it's box:



and a 22g tube of Arctic Silver Ceramique for the GPU core and memory:



2x thermal pad sheets 1x thermal tape:



when i saw this I began to get nervous:



and sure enough this is not the POM top I ordered:



guess i will have to call frozenCPU tomorrow...

and finally, the last two items from that massive box ;-)





mmmmmmm, i am excited just thinking about what is under that plastic:



and here it is... (the finish looks 100x better in person, i will have to take some time with my real camera at some point to get it to show in the pics)



and that is it for the un-boxing pics, BUT DON'T GO YET, THERE IS MORE!

Shame about the order confusion, I hate it when that happens. I'm going through a similar kinda of hell at the moment with an ITX build.

And thats all very exciting stuff!

go figure, you get a frozencpu mix up after ShtSh00ttr made his thread about frozen, oh well.

it's going to be great when you refinish that 120.

and now for some mild actual work...



hmm, one is missing, where could it be?

oh, here it is:



I gotta say, the copper color is growing on me... and this is the used one that is a bit tarnished

plus, you cannot see a whole lot of the block normally:



here is where things get interesting, note the waterblock does not use the same holes as the stock cooler:



that wouldn't be an issue except for i still want to use the stock (and de-stickered) backplate to cool the memory:





as you can see the hex socket head screws the waterblock uses hold the backplate out from sitting against the PCB as it is supposed to:



I will have to drill some holes in the backplate to let those screws poke through.

these i can just put through the backplate stock holes though:



and now for a brief explanation of some of my fitting choices...

because the SLI block for these waterblocks have multiple options for flow directions i need to fill some of the holes with plugs:



but because i use 5/8" OD tubing the compressions do not like to play along:



if i thread the fittings in much more they bind against each other:



so that is where these come into play:





they make everything play together nicely.



the other option i may use is one of the rotories:



OH! and i forgot to show these in the last post:



frozencpu saved me the trouble of having to make my own.

and the overview shot of all the stuff i have to figure out how to fit in my poor pc-v2010:



I am so ready to get back to the modding

I just have to wait for 4 more smaller packages to arive now. I have one from performance-pcs.com with some more fittings and some wire for making cables, 2 from amazon.com with some tools, and one from Frozen-Q (i am most excited about that one)

Be warned, there will be epic modding mayhem in this thread in the next few weeks.

Good stuff Kev, can't wait to see how it all comes together.

Mmmm, fittings galore....
