I know you know it FOB....

Here it is at initial assembly


And here it is in the case




Now, by no means is the rest of my build FOB's meticulous level of quality, but my sandwich does infact trump his

Anyway, Falllout, get us more pics!!!!!

Fallout, since you are going with the black and silver look, you thought of sanding and painting the fans like I did, but go with Bumper Chrome (which is a actually spraypaint color) I think that would be awesome, and a really killer way to round out your mods look/color scheme.

**Edit**
A thought I just had, but had no luck finding what I was wanting to recommend. Remember on my mod I did some UV painting in the letters of various parts. Well, black lights can be made nearly invisible, if the are obstructed correcty. Now that being sais, you could use UV silver, as to stay with your color scheme, and silver in the lettering of EK and whatnot on your water components, kick on the lights and BAM you got some more solver in your build, that when the lights are off, is completely invisible, and most of those are water saluable, so can be washed off easily incase you dont dig the results. I know you really aren't into lights, but I think this is kinda a different thing, thought I would throw my 2 cents worth of artistic flare into your build......also its kinda like throwing a flare into a bonfire

I don't have ALL my temp tested anymore. Basically, if you set sandwhich rads in parallel, as the instructions say, its kinda bleh, unless you are WAY like on rads to begin with. I have the pic from as it is, because I changed how they connected from parallel to series, and temps made a big difference. Something like 15-16c under load improvement.



This basically turned the rad into a PA120.3, at least in effect. Made it double pass, a little thicker than the PA, but costed less.

Fallout, if you are planning on running any of these sandwhich style tube them how I did, and you WILL see better temps! Especially with those hefty rads.

Also, the color was a blue I found after scouring a hobby shop to find just the right color. I can find it again if you are wanting it for something.
