    Did you know:
    Bela Lugosi was born near the western border of Transylvania..
    @ after his (so called) death in 1956, he was buried wearing one of the Dracula costumes he had in his collection..

    Because i'm a young one I thought I would find out who this Bela Lugosi guy is. A quick search of wikipedia and I was satisfied. According to them there is a common misconception about his cape. Although he was buried in the costume the cape remained outside and is at Universal Studios, or something like that.

    Apart from that, I'm loving the copper goodness.

    Thanks.. Another bit of trivia..
    After the success of Dracula, Universal wanted Bela to "play" the monster in there next horror-epic "Frankenstein".. He said "hell no"..
    The monster has no-lines, just grunts and groans. The part is beneath me.. :miffed:
    A guy named Boris Karloff took the part.. and history was set in motion.
    Karloff became the king of horror-films until his demise in the late 1960's..
    Bela, not so much.. He made many second (third) class horror movies..
    10 years after turning down the Frankenstein-part.. He did become the monster in "Frankenstein meets The Wolf Man" (1942)..
    he was not very good.. Karloff was MUCH better.. :eyebrow:

    WORK.. sorry I have done nothing.. but we have concluded Karloff was "more the man" than Lugosi..

    No way.. IMHO the Stinger Blocks are way-more-cool..
    BUT, with that said.. Alphacool has a very-sexy water block.. I only wanted to show you guys..
    Yesterday and (most of) today.. playing Company of Heroes
    Man, what a cool game.. Black Narcissus is running HOT (GPU= 75C).. But, Vierville is in the hands of the Allies.. :thumb:

    It is indeed a very intresting looking block, I bit too "fake" goldish looking for my liking. I definately prefer the stinger blocks.

    ORANGE:

    I have been looking "high and low" for REAL Orange Leds..
    Most are red or yellow.. After wasting some cash, I found the real-deal at TheLEDLight
    [​IMG]
    bright as well.. They say narrow viewing angle, but I notice no-difference..
    [​IMG]
    the lighting for the case.. Spartan, only (8) 5mm leds for the machine..
    wired, resistor (ed) , sleeved and molexed..
    (4) always on and (4) on the switch
    [​IMG]
    toggle..
    the four "toggled" leds will be in a set of Detroitbros brake-pods. Polished aluminum.
    like so:

    That lighting effect is very nice. Glad to see you're not going overboard with lights. Sometimes less is more.
