    For the marbling? Black base coat,let it fully dry,36+ hours, then a thin but wet coat of silver then use cling film/saran wrap for the septics and scrunch it up then dab at the silver while its still fresh from the gun,it will look rough but will soften as the paint moves to fill the gapping. Clearcoat will even it out even more.

    Some still think it was paint,even after telling them that i couldnt get the hub off.....:D

    I feel like I let everyone down with the lack of Magoo content,I will make amends with excessive Magoo from here on in :thumb:

    Have you noticed that the 'infant king' of NRK has not been seen for 2 months? And Magoo has put on a kilo.......


    Conspiracy? I think not........

    Magoo does not 'do' rain.

    Today was all about the RAM.

    Pinstriped and left otherwise untouched.

    The EK package arrived!

    Lets start with the pump...

    Now,im a well known advocate of the mighty D5 but this build doesnt have the space so I had to go with the DDC. As any watercooling enthusiast will tell you,there are caveats for running DDC's at high speeds,namely keeping it cool. The heatsink kit will go a long way in to doing just that.

    If you are going to have a DDC then go PWM,your pump will thank you for it.

    Fittings and rads were also sent....pics later,you have all seen fittings before but I made the fatal mistake of washing my black background with normal detergent and its ruined for close up stuff,the optical brighteners just shagged it proper for macro stuff...

    Lesson learnt! ​





    Welcome and thanks for looking!
    Good luck with your project.

    Ah, I thought the recent pimp hat and beard were suspicious.
    DDCs can take some heat, but don't wire them backwards!:lol:

    Did a bit more striping on the finished top to tie it in too.

    I have a new background coming tomorrow,a nice dark grey vinyl,should allow me to make dark shots without having to make severe adjustments to kill the background out.

    Woof!
    Looks gorgeous. I have to ask though, how much of a pain is it to pin strip in between ridges like that?

    Thanks,its such a simple mod but looks so good

    And more to come!

    Not that difficult tbh,I measured the slots with a vernier caliper and programmed the cutter to produce strips to suit.
    To place them is simple,I stick one end of the vinyl to the workbench,feed the ram underneath it then draw the stripe along them,if you keep it taut then it will always be straight.

    I can do a video if you wish?

    Thanks guys,im quite proud of my new found ability,someone asked me for 1440 pics to use as a desktop pic!

    No watercooling loop is complete without control and again I turn to Aquacomputer for their Aquaero 6 Pro controller,provided by my goto watercooling supplier,Specialtech.co.uk.

    I decided against the touchscreen number,mainly as I normally just disable i anyway and this has a better look to it,just the screen and the 3 buttons. The heatsink is on route as we speak.

    I love the functionality of the unit,particularly the IR on/off,it totally declutters the front and carries everything I would want to know about the state of the rig.​
