I've embedded your enormous Dropbox images in your post, however I'd recommend using a more suitable image host like Photobucket, Imgur or Flickr. Otherwise your thread will take ages to load and kill browsers

This is not the placement for the Bitspower Logo but a handmage done with dremel and some paint.
I will be using Bitspower Fittings, Reservoir and other components from them. They simply just have the best fittings available in my opinion




.





And a Teaser for my next project I will be using this Motherboard :



Have fun all, Modding your way. It is the only way

Just a small update for you all. Only few days until I get my camera so bear with me here for the quality.
I am redoing the paint job on the sidepanels and am using Metallic pearl flake VIOLET = Indigo blue.
After that I will put three times of clearcoat for that extra oompfff.
Oh yeah and I will give you a sample of Mayhems die




here you can see the Pearl affect







Only one drop of Mayhems Purple




One drop of Mayhems ocean blue + Purple together




To me it looks Indigo blue and that is not blue, and not purple but just in the middle or mixed together LOL




Pics of the Die from Mayhems:



Thats it for now.

Thanks for stopping by

Hi everyone. Today is Good day like most are. For me specially because I got Things to show of and tell about.
My sponsor Mundi @www.icemodz.com got me a Samsung camera for a price that is like he practically gave me the Cam so I can show off me modding in better quality.
Secondly I bought more Plexi/ Extruded acrylic from 3mm to 6mm >> which is Smoked which I am putting on the front of the case. The clear one I have various sizes and thickness.
I am going to make the window side Larger and in different shape, also the PSU cover is getting a makeup.

NOOOOOOOW I am MAD My 280x has died and I just bought it used from a guy two weeks ago. It can't be repaired I don't even own another GPU or a block
I have spent so much on this project. Mainly WC stuff and more and I am not well funded so I do not know what now or when I can finish this.
Most of the watercooling stuff is in post as I speak...
