After looking around the aquaero 6 is pretty trick and well what's another 220 bucks !

Only thing I'm regretting is not going caselabs.... The video card block is my favorite aspect of the build and with a vertical mobo it really robs the look. Bein that I live 35 mins from caselabs I may look into a Mercury s8

Got around to work a little more on my Monsta 480 today and did go all the way to make it shine, 240, 1000, 1500, 2000 and 2500 grit sandpaper wet grinding. Going to go over with 2500 grit until I am happy with it, but it is close. A little teaser. smile.gif

That's pretty much how it is before rads get painted/powdercoated. Looks cool to me thumb.gif

Yes, I thought so, too bad they don't sell them like this, much more pretty than that matte black paint that is on it originally. I will try to get a little "old school" look out of my new build, thinking shining copper and brushed alu look. Do not know yet if I have the patient to do this to my other Monsta and the EK-XTX240 though, it is extremely time consuming. ph34r-smiley.gif

I think the Alphacool rads are powdercoated (please correct me if mistaken), and that's probably why you are having a hard time.

I have no idea if they are powercoated or not, but the paint is sticking good to the radiator. Even with 240 grit sandpaper it is not going right off and to make it a little worse again I have painted the radiators myself too (three layers with primer, three with white paint and then one-two layers of clear coat after that). It will be troublesome to make it all copper in each end ...

Ditto. I like the look a lot. I may do the same thing when I buy another radiator in the next couple of weeks

Good thinkin', that is a polishing machine? Seems like I can pick up one for 61 USD locally (which it is worth), it will make the polishing much easier at least ... how fine grit sandpaper can you use on it? If I have to guess, I would think that if you have 2000 grit and higher grit paper it is going to cost some to get it on a machine like that.
