    It looks awesome, but after my 'sploding NB top, I'd be wary of that splitter.
    The video cards look like you could make toast with them.:D

    Peruse the AMD forum at XS, there's a hell of a lot of good info on the board as well as a collection of beta BIOSes...

    Note, I cast my own raw material, machine it myself using a Dremel Drill press station I made into a manual mill and a corded drill with no torque adjustments.

    I had fun, I'mma go bandage my finger I ran the mill across...

    Part of the process you don't see-the mishaps!

    This one got stuck when I was filling the cracks in it. I wanted it badly enough...

    I'm a masking tape and paper towel person. I usually can't handle getting a real band-aid unwrapped with a finger messed up.
    I'd really like to see the full casting process. It's something I've been thinking about trying.

    I usually carry band-aids in my wallet. I never know when My dad or I will get hurt.
    Anyways, nice to see that you are casting your own parts. Looking great!
