    WOW...

    I haven't posted much here at BT as of late (been lurking though), but this one is just too damn beautiful to not give you the obligatory :droo: Kier.

    I've been pining over that case design ever since Editor22 showed up his renders months ago... And now that you've brought it to reality it looks even more beautiful. Stuff like this is what keeps me coming here man... Tons of talented modders/builders here and you're definitely part of the "creme-de-la-creme". I just hope to one day be able to build something half as beautiful as you do with such ease.

    :)

    SPONSOR Update!!!

    Provided by ASUS :

    [​IMG]

    Last Thursday I didn't left the house, because I knew there was a very nice package coming

    Thank god for tracking ;)

    [​IMG]

    And in the afternoon the yellow / red guy came :)

    [​IMG]

    Omg this is exciting ;)

    [​IMG]

    ASUS has sent me two beautiful GTX 780 DirectCU II cards. TheASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5

    [​IMG]

    And of course...Unboxing:

    [​IMG]

    The box,

    [​IMG]

    And another box,

    [​IMG]

    The accessories:
    - 1 x Power cable
    - 1 x SLI Bridge
    - ASUS GPU Tweak & Driver

    [​IMG]

    The GPU

    [​IMG]

    Beautiful picture, isn't it

    [​IMG]

    The ASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    • Graphics Engine: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780
    • Bus Standard: PCI Express 3.0
    • Video Memory: GDDR5 3GB
    • Engine Clock: GPU Boost Clock : 941 MHz/ GPU Base Clock : 889 MHz
    • CUDA Core: 2304
    • Memory Clock: 6008 MHz ( 1502 MHz GDDR5 )
    • Memory Interface: 384-bit

    [​IMG]

    The card features a self-designed PCB that features a 10-phase VRM.
    This ensures that the card can deliver up to 30% more voltage and less noise is present,
    enhance power efficiency by 15%, widen voltage modulation tolerance, and improve overall stability and longevity by 2.5 times over reference.

    [​IMG]

    The GPU has the latest generation DirectCU II cooler. These features as previous models two fans. One is called Cool Tech fan, it combines two types of fans and thus creates more air flow that benefits the cooling capacity.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Beneath these fans is an aluminum cooling surface present with five heatpipes. Four of them have a thickness of 8 mm.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The central heat pipe is 10 mm.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Power Connector: 6 pin / 8 pin

    [​IMG]

    Ports:
    • HDMI 1 x
    • DisplayPort 1 x
    • DVI 2 x

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a nice aluminum backplate is also present,

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And some more nice pictures of both

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Was a bit worried they would'nt fit because of the dimensions (28.7 x 14.73 x 4.06 cm)
    But no problem :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So now we wait for the great waterblocks from EKWB, but they will be released soon
    Until then ..... Game on :)

    The straight lines, OH GOD... Fantastic. The patience to make all of those vertical must have been mind-bending. But totally worth it!

    This is amazing as what we all have come to expect from you, love that I've watched this from design right through so far, can't wait for those blocks and for it to be finished!

    There he is again!!

    Took a while but.....we continue where we left off. First a great gratitude to HighFlow for the beautiful sponsorship due some required items.
    What would I do without HighFlow??

    [​IMG]

    What I have ordered for this build:

    Masterkleer - HighFlow - 3/8 ID - 1/2 OD - Clear

    [​IMG]

    A NZXT Frontpanel Cable Set

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    PSU 24-Pin extension cable

    [​IMG]

    And a PSU 8-Pin CPU extension cable

    [​IMG]

    I'd also needed some adapters and chose the Alphacool HF 5-Way Splitter

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the Alphacool HF 3-Way Splitter

    [​IMG]

    I'm also trying some things/ ideas with some Lamptron switches, such as the Lamptron 19mm DOT Red

    [​IMG]

    And ordered 2 Lamptron 19mm RING Red

    [​IMG]

    More on this later. Naturally need some valves

    [​IMG]

    Of course a beautiful Highflow T-shirt

    [​IMG]

    Thanks Highflow And Freddy

    Bought some nice SSDs which come in handy in this build

    Thanks Peter :)

    [​IMG]

    The back as it was

    [​IMG]

    Customized a piece of acrylic with 4 SSDs inside

    [​IMG]

    Placed like this

    [​IMG]

    A red piece of acrylic where i've mounted the SSDs... and is easily removable

    [​IMG]

    mounted the big transparent plate

    [​IMG]

    Cut a recess for the cables

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Made this black

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Placed an LED strip behind, but still need one more

    [​IMG]

    Placed the 24pin extension like this

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also been busy with the rad grill and the cover for PSU in the front.
    Normally I do everything by hand, but my good friend Pascal van Veen helped me with his home made CNC machine. Thanks Pascal van Veen ... your the best mate.
    So this time not by hand....sorry ;)

    Movie first:



    As seen in the movie, the result... a beautiful rad grill

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a great cover with EKWB

    This is getting better and better. Reminds me of some kind of science fiction laboratory. Personally, I'd ditch that pleaxi rad grill though. For me, it kind of ruin the build. Like taking a crap on a good chocolate bar, sorry. Looks way better without!! Epic built otherwise!!

    It's not that it's a bad grill itself, I just think it's a bit incongruous with the rest of the build, that all! Looks good anyhow =)

    Late for the party but sub me in!

    I will never admit to being a fan (I don't spin that fast :worried:) but I like your builds. Even more than I liked pOPe's M8. I also have to agree with quizz_kid, that shroud definitely leads attention away from the 'center stage'.
