    Thanks buddy :)

    Fun with tube braiding later in the week... :p I just have to work out how I'm going to get it to fit...

    Oh, and seeing as I'm doing this rebuild, are there any specific watercooling items people would like me to cover? That way I know what photos to take :)

    What's that white looking stuff on the top grill, is it the camera flash?

    Yeh, the lighting is awful here. I'm hoping it'll get sunnier over the next few days so i can take some better pictures :)

    Priming is going well :) Just need to do the rear of the fans then leave it to dry for 24 hours. Then a day of sanding tomorrow, yay! :p

    I'll get some pictures up later :)

    It's called being cunning... :D



    Painting is going well, the colour looks lovely, will be sanding and doing the final coat tomorrow :) So I'll take pics and do a big update then, it's just such a pain using my GF's laptop...

    :nono: Endure the pain of the shredded finger tips like the rest of us :hehe:

    I ended up buying my own laptop rather than have to endure the use of a mere Netbook :eyebrow:

    Another mini update.

    Notice that my GPU block suffers from the EK nickel corrosion issue, so I emailed EK. I knew it'd be outside of warrenty, but they gave me a discount on just a copper block (no covers). So I can carry on with painting :D Full marks go to EK!!

    Started putting thing into my new case today, and I just realised that I bought the wrong kind of SATA cable :( Very annoying. I haven't finished painting yet (I was feeling hungover today :p ) So I hope to finish that over the next few days. Keep an eye out for pics (I have lots stored :) )
