    Thanks again every one!

    A nice evening of blocking :)

    Perfect to remove EK logo's and replace them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Done!

    [​IMG]


    But first the original Nvidia SLI bridge ..
    Want to polish it and have a little problem.
    I don't want to place the GPU's that close together and the spaced-slot bridge wasn't an option with the X99 Deluxe.

    [​IMG]


    First dismantle it.

    [​IMG]


    This is the space I need, just one slot further.

    [​IMG]


    And took it apart even more.

    [​IMG]


    While brainstorming also got an other idea.

    [​IMG]


    Let's first sand and polish.

    [​IMG]


    And clean it up again.

    [​IMG]


    Got taken care of very well ;)

    [​IMG]


    Also done!

    [​IMG]


    Just going to use the other bridge with the original housing. Do need to isolate it with some tape.

    [​IMG]


    Cut away the top green layer so I will be able to use a white or blue one.

    [​IMG]


    Because I'm going to use the Corsair Link Commander also decided to use the Corsair RGB LED strips :)

    [​IMG]


    Add glue and wait :)

    [​IMG]


    Next day .. satisfied.

    [​IMG]


    So ... got what I wanted :)

    [​IMG]


    Back to the setup.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Gotta play with it off course ;)

    [​IMG]

    The color will probably become white

    [​IMG]


    Trying to get inspired for the next update :)

    [​IMG]


    And a little round-up video incl. the SLI/GPU enlightening.

    Nice mod of the bridge, and ditto to the lightshow!
    But why not light up the cpu block as well?

    Great mod! I was considering that myself since Nvidia in their great wisdom decided not to release a proper spaced SLI bridge.

    Thanks, just playing around :dremel:
    I might do, I'm not sure yet how it will end :)

    As you can see, it's not that hard :)

    Small update.

    Back to the SSD's.

    [​IMG]


    Lets first cut them in half :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Some people got scared by this photo on facebook :)

    [​IMG]


    Giving the Dominator Platinum fins a nice rounding.

    [​IMG]


    And some more sawing, filing and sanding.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Should become something like this :)

    [​IMG]


    Corsair Force LX Dominator Platinum 1TB Raid0 SSD :)

    [​IMG]


    Also got the question if I was able to do something with the new Neutron XT's but the PCB is a little larger.
    Will come up with something different for them ;)

    [​IMG]


    Also got the pipe from CoolForce/Nanoxia for this project. Something I haven't been working with before.
    12/10 mm PETG ... Finally! (instead of acrylic)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Made a little video of it with some of the differences.

    You never fail to bring something new to the game. The hardline looks to be easier than the norm, going to be interesting to see how you attach flat items to round tube!

    L3p, making hard tubing look easy! :thumb: I'd love to give it a crack, but banned by parents! :( (at Uni, always moving PC.. Apparently that's bad for it? :hehe: )

    It's all up to you to fulfill my new-found hard tubing epicness desires, mate.. No pressure! :thumb:

    Snipping the tube is best example I've seen of the difference, nice clean cut vs shatter, PETG is perfect choice for this, acrylic is just too fragile.

    Let's not forget that screechy noise that acrylic did when sawing it...
    Big goosebumps!
