    I could see some Darskide lava-colored sleeving going VERY well with this build!

    Before end of April? No can do (I wouldn't be able to get the copper until next week). Before end of May? No problem.

    ...Did I just see Nexxo's next update get bumped back a month?:worried:

    @Bneg - No samples, they burned up in re-soldering inferno.

    Thats a shame...

    A little update to keep things ticking over?

    How about a shot of the finished front panel paintwork?

    [​IMG]

    I carried the tray theme over to the front and back panels to give more detail to the otherwise featureless externals.

    Paint is black metallic with a marble effect,finished with a deep red candy and clear coat.

    Loop cut and in,need to pull them all and bench polish the tubing,airbrush with a red candy finish and tweak a couple of the lines for perfect alignment before final fitting.
    Nice and clean,simple and gives a perfect view of the hardware inside.Very happy with the layout!

    And yes,I lost one of the o-rings for the 290x block,this is why the cover for the VRM bridge is off....

    Now the perfectionist comes out in me,I cant stand hardlines that are not in line with points of reference,they have to be bang on! The rear tube from the GPU needs about 3mm lopped off the end where it meets the reservoir to bring it in line.

    Sleeve is on its way too!

    All in all a very clean loop indeed!
