    Got more?

    But seriously. I feel that the intense work you have done on the reservoirs and the front tubing is not justified by the matte and black fluid. It fits the color scheme perfectly, but the parts could be shown off so much better with a colored semi clear fluid.

    That being said, it still looks fantastic!

    Much more yep! Can't wait to get into the studio for final shots.

    Yeah I get your point, I was very much considering some translucent fluid hence the poll. But ultimately I was not prepared to introduce an accent or new colour. I don't think the contrast would have been strong enough with clear.

    The big problem here was we used frosted for the tops of the res', thus the pastel coolant shows through much stronger and another liquid may have gotten a little lost.

    So when do we cut you some more 10mm :D

    SLI Bridge. What to do?

    So our friends over at Nvidia sent us an awesome little gift. In fact one of the only 3 Nvidia have in the UK. Since we have the 780's it was only the correct thing to do and use the LED feature. However the decision is how and what to do with this? It fits in PERFECT with the build... just is the green too out of place? I imagine the LED is probably actually white, with the green rubber giving the green tone. I mean we want to support team green as much as possible on this one but will it kill the monotone?

    Please let me know what you think and if you have any ideas?

    found a thread on this, it's actually a white led and you can scrape the paint off with a knife if your careful. Leaving just white rubber :D

    Wouldn't you lose the black paint with it, though? If you did it would just be a white... shape.

    In any case, great progress! (pun very much intended :D)

    The green is actually slightly raised so the black would stay, work for tiny hands mind!

    I feel you should at least try it fitted as is.. It's such a small touch of green and a nice nod to the nvidia power fitted within. If it looks to garish, then do your white mod. Though no doubt you've already fitted it eh ;-). Share a photo..
