    Literally amazing work. Really great! Also, I have the same CPU block and have been trying to find a pic of it fitted with UV reactive coolant for ages.

    What coolant did you use?

    Also, bit of a strange request: Is there any chance you could email me the full size pic of the casting pit on P71? I'd just love it for my background!

    Thanks jhanlon & nagyizom :thumb:

    Glad to be of service :), the coolant I'm using is feser one acid green from: scan one bottle was easily enough.

    Yeah thats fine, those were just a few of the pics I took, can you PM me your email the file with all the pics is 50mb. I would have uploaded all the full res pics throughout the log but it would take forever as theres 6.4gb of them and I have a slow upload speed.

    I really enjoyed the log, everything DIY custom made to an excellent standard. :dremel::D

    Only bit that had me scratching my head in the log & didn't know what to say with having no knowledge of CNC was the CNC programming bit to make the mold for the cast pieces, CNC guys might think they be boring people with all that but it's all a big part of what makes things happen so even though I don't understand it it's good to see a bit of what goes into that type of stuff, everything else was in my language though. :dremel::D

    This build is awesome & love the absolute silence of it & it all just looks soooo nice & really awesomely well built, I think this one is more worthy of the Stealthlow name because it truly is stealthy & it flows nice. :rock:

    I often never know what to call you & still don't :lol: Graham, riek, kier?. :confused: Mirrorman :hehe: Guess I'll just go with Keir from now. :thumb:

    New update incoming, so something didn't quite sit right for you. :D:dremel: Awesome :D:clap:

    I love the lighting on this case! It complements the shiny metal really well!

    Thanks Samrobmoe :thumb:

    Yeah lol, I was going for the hidden look :)

    Thanks dirky90 & voigts :thumb:

    Yep, I'll probably end up getting one of those new HD7770 or 7850 gpu's at some point, I know Bit-tech didn't give the 7770 a very good review but I like its power efficiency and it only has one pci-e power connector.

    That stealth drive looks great. You probably have to be pretty careful to not scratch up your cd's too much.

    It has been awesome following this log.

    Well done.

    The slot loader looks fantastic, makes a huge difference. Nicely done.
