    Oh god, you're not one those pretentious "look at me, I Vape!" hipsters, are you? I was literally close to breaking some heads in the bar of a theatre a few months back because a group of spanners who felt the need to blow clouds of various flavour smoke over the entire after show party we were at. I fully get (and support) people vaping to get off the smokes, but using it as fashion accessory or status symbol just drives me up the wall...

    I'll tell you what's even worse. On Mondays and Thursdays I play in a pool league. I don't take it seriously and I've been playing since i was 2. But what drive me up the [censored] wall is people vaping... ONTO THE TABLE!!! :duh:. Not only are you adding moisture to the cloth but you are also making it so either I can't see the balls I want to play or my vision get's slightly distorted so I'm not accurate. Want to vape outside? Fine. Want to vape in a car? go ahead, but open a window and don't think about it with kids or without asking passengers. Vaping at home? Again fine with me. But not inside a [censored] pool hall.

    6 strings good, 7 strings (or 8!) bad.

    And

    Oh yeah, and

    The block and back plate I use are almost all paste, not thermal pads. Better I would imagine, but at least supply something. Ah well, it was only £4.99 but damn, the amount of times I've said "It's only £30" or "it's only a tenner" during this build has been nuts. Going to try and avoid full on water in the future. You start out with a budget and it just gets blown to smithereens very very quickly.

    8 bad, becuase you end up only using 2 strings and about 4 frets.

    7 is where its at. Cos chug. Not Djent.

    Assuming you are referring to the fact its only a 6 string. I have never tried a 7, I might do one day but not for now. the current project im working on is fine with this beast.

    It is the first 24 fret i have had so I am happy about that.

    Anything more than 6 strings I personally consider a waste of time. Drop tuning is there for a reason people! Though I wish I still had my Schecter Omen 6 :( I'm stuck with a les paul stagg... granted still good for a cheap guitar brand!

    That's why when I do water, even in this age of superfluous rotary/angle/compression fittings, I stick with good old 7/16" tubing on 1/2" barbs. What some people spend on fittings alone, I can cover the cost of a block and rad... It's all Bitspower's fault, they are the "FAST CAR" of watercooling.

    The BP stuff was very cheap. £2.49 each. I got 12 for a total of £29.88 which is not bad. Even the 45 deg and so on were only like £3.99 each (OCUK look like they are clearing out). The hose is only 11mm OD too. 8/11 but the stuff I got is a bit crap lol. It's just all of these things that add up slowly. £1.99 for a pass through here, £3.99 for a rotary there. I have used a lot of fittings in this to try and make the hoses look nice instead of looking like turd. I like flexible hoses more. They look more organic, but if you are turning say 90 degrees they look crap or they kink.
