    Nicely thought out and designed. I can't imagine the design work that went in to it. I look forward to the rest of the build. Nicely done!

    Thank you both.
    Yup, countless hours went into design, but at the end it will be worth it.



    :thumb: yea, 5x 180mm fans all with Magicool radiators for BEASTy cooling.

    Taking apart 7950 and start cleaning TIM. I used Akasa TIM clean.

    Cleaned GPU and applied thermal pads.

    DAMN!! Very nice indeed!! Would love to do a scratch build like this one day, but alas, access to engineering equipment and skill to do this is what I lack.

    Heck, if I were to attempt something like this, I'd probably end up missing a limb afterwards. :p

    Subbed!!

    Yes, i think these blocks will look better in this build.

    And the CPU block is also oldschool :D


    Thanks.

    Don't worry you would be fine :thumb:

    QFT!

    NFusion, you sir are an extremely talented individual, looks AWESOME, great attention to detail and stunning execution. :rock:

    Looking at it again, and again, and again :) the tubes going through the grill just look somewhat .... out of place i guess, kinda like an after thought, you could go with some bulkhead passthrough fittings just out side the bottom grill, use 45 degrees and you would still retain those luverly curves on the tube :)
    Hope i didnt offend, still looks great either way :)

    Hi Father-Time, thanks for the kind words, it means a alot to me.

    Hmm, i also think bulkhead solution would be better, but i would have to order these fittings, which means waiting for atleast one and a half weeks to finish this build.

    Normally this isn't a problem, but i have a client build that needs my time :thumb:

    No offense taken :D thank you for healthy criticism.

    and finished project IgnitiOn.
