Whereas my logs are classy like dame Edna Everage.
Everything about this build is just exquisite! I love the metal inlay on the front panel - it might not be as sexy as the waterblocks, from an engineering standpoint, but it looks superb.
We into red dress territory again - wait, logs or legs?
Thanks man, didn't know that. Well, I think someone told me a while back in the log, but forgot that....
Mystery? The POM top is done...
Finished the backplate!
Water-block is assembled. In the pic I didn't mount the POM part, but it's on there now. All I have to do is polish it.
Lathed a plug for the copper pipes, when clamping them in the lathe and polish them, they won't deform by the clamping force.
Pipes are bent! All that's left to do is polish and clear-coat them.
Nice to see that you're letting the metal speak for itself rather than feeling the need to chrome the copper. I would try and keep all the bends the same radius though (referring to the longest copper tube from the GPU to the bottom of the case).
that one don't look right tbh
I see now. I was seeing the ports you cuts in the acetal and expecting some kind of bridge between them. I never would have suspected you to use the gpu as a pass-through to the cpu. You confused my feeble mind.
Awesome. That little hidey-hole for the new electrical plug too -Fun little details.
This is just mind blowing, im on my first real project and when i see and read your updates it takes me back to why i started whit computer modding!
Its not about your extrem components, Its about design, ingenuity, future and perfection.
Keep on modding and Thanks for a asesome project and more to come
I think that's a trick of the camera angle. It looks like it actually bends towards the camera by about 30degrees as it clears the fans, before bending down to the base at the same radius as the higher bends.
IanW is right. It's the camera angle, I didn't think about that when taking the pic...
Here's how it looks like.
While were at it, this is what I did today.
Polished and clear-coated the copper pipes.
Polished the backplate, too.
This is why I have no build logs, and probably never will ..... very good, carry on with the exquisiteness
nice layout but one pipe needs to be fixed
o god..... MY GOD!
That's one heck of a complex bend.
Are you rocking the black fingernails yet. I love polished copper too, but you can blink and it's dark again. My last project I polished and immediately painted the parts one at a time to avoid it.
@uerseya - Why despair? It's like being mad someone else built the Statue of Liberty.
Incredible work as usual
(aggressive boner suppression in progress)
My brain hurts.
Do I get it right that one pair of plugs on the GPU Cooler is just a pass through ?
Long Pipe from Flowmeter is mor or less a direct connection on the GPU Cooler to the CPU Block -> after the cpu the fluid goes through the GPU and exits from the Pom side to the radiator ?
This is just sick. How did you came up with that design..
Tongue was in cheek I find with myself that my standards are greater than my ability
So clean!! Nice job!
