    Thanks man! :)
    When I work with UV active stuff I always use another ledstrip next to the UV one. This purely to hide that purple glow. Also what I did in the 'L3p D3sk' build with UV and blue ledstrips.

    Thanks you :thumb:
    I was using this extender for testing purposes but all of a sudden I had a :idea: moment.
    You can do so much different stuff with these long extenders :)

    Haha this has been seen by others too on my Dutch buildlog :p Thanks!
    Using this angle to fully show all blocks in one sight. Will be creating some sort of a rest for the gpu from POM.


    Thanks man, hope you'll like this small build :thumb:

    :hehe: Seen it too, intentional or not, it's awesome. :D

    That stock cooler is really nice looking though but it will be far better cooled underwater, it's all looking nice this Peter & I agree, shame the mobo block doesn't come in the same material, would look pretty awesome. :)

    I really like the 690, came close to buying one but went for 2 670s for lower cost, was starting to feel need for a bit more oomph, it is nice sliding all settings to max & feeling quite confident it will handle nicely, I held back on giving SLI a real chance for ages but I'm really happy with it, I remember getting crossfire when it was new & it mostly gave performance decreases so it put me off multi GPU for quite a while with paying double but getting less than single with high energy draw, seems it's been perfected for quite a while now & you get what you pay for. :)

    Really could do with buying some bits boxes, I'm awfully organised & waste too much time looking for my bits, I'll get around to it eventually. :lol:

    Thanks Waynio!
    Asked EK if they would ever bring out this block in acrylic version but they don't. Ahh will just have to do :)
    The bitboxes weren't that expensive, I believe around €3 each.

    Already spotted some pics online from people polishing their waterblocks.
    Seemed like a great plan for this build too :)

    [​IMG]


    All I used for the polishing:
    P1500 P2000 P3000 and wax

    [​IMG]


    About 3-5 minutes with each for this result.

    [​IMG]


    So lets do the rest too :)

    [​IMG]


    Cpu block also done.

    [​IMG]


    But was missing something.

    [​IMG]


    So..

    That's better.

    [​IMG]


    Wanted to do it the easy way so kept the block and plexi in their place, just used a few pieces of tape to protect.

    Took a little longer cause of the size.

    [​IMG]


    Also replaced the old bolts for stainless steel ones, also polished those.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And the switch.

    [​IMG]


    Result ..

    [​IMG]

    I'm satisfied.

    Somehow that "slime green" coolant looks awesome. But I should expect no less from you :thumb:
    I have to admit, thecircle pattern looks a HELL of a lot better once polished.
    less goat-sie, more goat-ee :p :D

    To imagine I wasn't doing a mod .. just can't resist it :)
    Thanks flame696!

    Thanks a lot siliconfanatic! :thumb:


    Can't wait myself too but there's still a lot that has to happen :p


    Thanks a lot guys! :thumb:
    I used green Nanoxia fans but next time I'm going to use Gelid green wings for a change :p
    They aren't available in red by the way :/ Gelid does have them in blue.

    Those blocks look soooo much better polished, I dunno what EK were thinking by not doing it ? I guess there's some accountant trying to save money somewhere.:eyebrow:

    I already saw your polished RAM block on the EK idea boards and found it amazing and now I find out that you did the CPU and GPU block aswell?! Very nice L3P!
    Any chance you will write a small guide on how to do it? Did you do it all by hand ?

    Thanks guys!

    Ahh a volunteer, please send a pm :thumb:

    Thanks mate :)
    Well it's actually so easy ... this is a guide, all you need is some P1000-P2000 and polishing wax.
    3 minutes of sanding and 3-5 minuts of polishing and you're done :dremel:

    Small mod this time :)

    Because I'm using an EK MEM block for this build and since I'm going to use a Dominator Platinum kit tried to make something to keep the Platinum look.

    [​IMG]


    At the start I wanted a small hole and keep the text.

    [​IMG]


    But it disappeared after 5 seconds with P1000 .. it wasn't punched in that deep.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Time for an other approach.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Just a few hours of filings and sanding :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And done.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Glued it on a few points.

    [​IMG]


    I know it's a totally useless mod, specially since watercooling Ram isn't needed..
    Still I like the looks and doing it :)
