    The back plate is going well. Here it is here, and please, don't be too jealous of my meerkat PJs.

    And the polished edge. Not the best, but then I don't have the sandpaper to polish it out properly.

    However, I have learned a trick I picked up when doing the nose cone for this build. If your polishing isn't good enough or you have marks that show up when it's dry (but not wet) then a decent clear coat/ lacquer is what you want.

    Here is my new secret weapon.

    Et Voila.

    I have also scanned it for producing the graphics etc. Obviously as it has been sanded quite thoroughly it now isn't exactly the same size it was before..

    That's about it for now :)

    Thanks Bill. Hope you had a great Christmas mate :)

    It seems I missed a post here.. One mirror back plate !

    Now I can finally see my lovely water block :D it means more LEDs though, but that's nothing too involved.

    Today I hooked up everything on the desk to test, running from an external PSU (not the pump obs)

    And then started the very slow and tedious task of creating my own AS page.

    Still need to learn that, but thankfully it is very similar to AIDA 64 and a emulator I used to work with.

    "Spot the AC"

    [​IMG]

    It's pretty neato how the whole fan frame lights up, too. That's saved me about £40.

    OK my best attempt at a "daylight" pic. Unfortunately there is pretty much none today.

    And a better pic of the AC

    [​IMG]

    Still lots to do (get some lighting for the back plate, make a USB cable etc) but it's getting there

    So I finally found something to light up the GPU with so that you can see it in the mirror.

    [​IMG]

    It's LED, not a cathode (so no big lump to hide) and it has a milky shell. So you can't see the LEDs. Perfect really. Will need to be altered and so on but it's mainly the shell I was after.
