    Thank you for dropping by Atilla and thanks again for all the support and help you gave me via PM's, plus rep to you :thumb:

    awww I know the 4890 is a sorry sight on the eyes :( but unless I get a DX11 card donated to me that matches the colour scheme it's going to have to stay that way :sigh:

    Rofl I'm glad you like it man! I've posted them over there now :)

    Thanks man, My lighting for the final pictures was the sun :) a nice cloudy day with the sun low in the sky. I set up the case up on a sheet of 0.75mm aluminium I had from another bit of diy work to create a nice backdrop and also to reflect some more light up.
    Post production consisted of white balance and curve adjustments and a little bit of the healing tool to remove some dust marks. Hope that helps :hip:

    Thanks man, I did'nt save the PDF file but I have created a new one for you :)

    Hope that's ok :)

    Thank you very much Hannes :blush:

    Truly exceptional. This build looks outstanding. It is very neat, clean, and well executed with a great color scheme. I see some articles being done on this one.

    Excellent case Ed :jawdrop::clap::thumb:, seen you mention CNC mill coming up :naughty:, probably the ultimate modding tool :rock: personally couldn't justify the price unless I was making money from it though :D, sure look forward to seeing what you get made with it though :thumb:.
    +rep for completion mate :thumb:.

    Thanks man, I cant wait to get stuck in using it :D still looking over prices though so a few months out yet :p

    Anytime :thumb:

    Bah at least you managed to fix it :)

    ---

    Been playing around with photoshop and HDR images (thanks Razer for helping out with this)
    I was having a real tough time capturing the lighting as it actually looks but I think that I'm on to a winner now :)
    What do you guys think? shall I do the night time shots like this?

    Any advice, help is welcome :thumb:

    Looks lovely but there are parts that are not in focus. Try closing up the aperture to give it a deeper depth of field.

    Thanks for the help man :)

    :thumb:

    Thanks man, I've gone over the initial shots and all 3 are in focus :( my guess is that there was some slight movement in the camera when I was changing the expo times. I'll try putting the tripod on a sheet of wood or something more stable than carpet for the final shots :)

    Thank you k.3nny :rock:
