8-7-2011 mod
I wasn't going to wait for EK to release a classified waterblock for my gtx 570, so I made my own.
The inside of the plexi was shot with a candy apple red. It's a spray can I bought at my local hobby warehouse for $5, so far this was my cheapest and favorite mod.

big hole i cutout were 2 120mm fans now occupy:

SAM_0124.jpg

i used a latter and set a a long metal strip atop to hang all my parts while i sprayed them down with rattle cans, I just wished i had a spray gun but it was stolen a few years back. next time i'm going to wait for a spray gun. the inside paint has different metal lights so at different angles you'll see different colors (red, green, etc), looks cool but it wasn't my original intent I just grabbed the wrong can. The out side is a metallic black, what i had originally planned.

only regret is that i lost my asus mobo when i pulled a stick of ddr2 from the heatsink, it was really on there and once i pulled it out my board it didn't post any more mad.gif , that and i didn't take any pics while painting. all thats left is painted new screws for the plexi glass and my gtx 570 back from rma.

after some bondo and primer:
SAM_0205.jpgSAM_0206.jpgSAM_0207.jpg

the finished fan cover attached with velcro :
SAM_0208.jpgSAM_0209.jpgSAM_0210.jpgSAM_0212.jpgSAM_0213.jpgSAM_0214.jpgSAM_0215.jpg
In that gap between thecover and case you're able to see the velcro:
SAM_0217-2.jpg
I want to fill the front of the cover with a LCD of some kind but can't think of anything right now.
Up next I'm adding some nzxt led led the @meter version.
and later on I might add a new plexi glass cover.
