Operation Goldfinger Shall Commence In:
3

1

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

This build log would not have been possible without the awesome effort of Hanoverfist and his great paint skills! This build has changed shapes and names quite a few times in my mind leading up to this. After looking at the first few panels Hanover had painted I finally choose Goldfinger. I'm a huge Bond fan and this is my favorite of all the films in the series.

Thanks this log will be pretty quick. I'm already working on the loop, bending acrylic for the first time.

Here are my final pics the build is done. I tried to get some outdoor photos with the sunlight but no luck. I also got rid of all the red accents on the MSI Motherboard as well.

Can you please elaborate on what color LEDs you were testing? Are the first two pics BLUE LED and the second two UV LED?
It looks that way and may be obvious but I can't be sure my monitor is showing what you intended.

And, I assume your cooling liquid is clear with blue dye (non-UV), correct?

Looks great in any case. Well done.

Thanks for the kind words. Yes you"re right I'm using Darkside RGB LED's here is a pic of the setup, and a link where you can find them. Dazmode is Canadian Store and he's got his own brand of watercooling components now. He has LED"s, Rad, and all kinds of sleeved cables as well under the branding Darkside. He's a great guy and really passionate about all things water cooling
