    Any chance of you somehow smoothing the transition from the rad grill to the rest of the plate on the left? That edge on top of the pre-existing surface is making my OCD flare up...

    Otherwise it's nice to see some new progress! :dremel:

    The beautiful ASUS GTX780-DC2-3GD5 I have for a while in possession now, but was still waiting for the beautiful EKWB blocks.

    So very happy when the EKWB package arrived:

    [​IMG]

    Unboxing!!!

    2x The beautiful full cover EK-FC780 GTX DCII Nickel (Original CSQ)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The water block itself

    [​IMG]

    Off course all accessories included to give the GPU a new look

    [​IMG]

    Installation of these beautiful products in a moment ;)

    [​IMG]

    Also received 2x great EK-FC780 GTX DCII Backplates more on this also later on

    Not to forget also in the EKWB box, the EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ Nickel

    [​IMG]

    Made a little movie for you guys of installing the block on the GPU



    After this job.... the pictures. It was allready a very beautiful GPU, but this rocks if I may say so myself

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the superb backplates

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Placed them right away to see how it looks instead of the "smaller" GPUs

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Before I continue with the placement and routing of everything, I did another small adjustment. The radgrill:
    I pasted first white and then black vinyl. White for better light distribution and black to finish the whole thing.

    And placed red LED strips behind.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Lights out

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Back to the water blocks and routing. This was already known, but I had to change because of other measurments EK-FC link (placed a little bit higher)

    [​IMG]

    After some fitting and measuring... again managed to get everything straight

    [​IMG]

    Looks like...

    [​IMG]

    Connected everything with the C47 adapters.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And some pics with the LEDS on

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Creative again with adapters and acrylic tube (masking tape will be removed and need to make cover for the LED strip and open space ;) )

    Next update... filling the Scratch!!!

    It's absolutely beautiful but I do have to ask you this...

    How much thermal paste!? :D

    I can't wait to see this completed. It looks fantastic already. :)

    I love this build, this is the one that inspired me to make the test bench. I really like the angles and everything about this case. I almost went so far to make it for myself and not post pictures anywhere so Nate would never find out that i snatched his build :D

    Anyways, keep those updates coming, loving every single one of them :)
