    I plan on changing fitting. I'll test those depending on their arrival.

    Great work man! That old CPU block looks pretty cool! I wonder if it performs well though? Excellent work on those fans!

    That old block looks the bomb! :thumb:

    And I just looked up electroless nickel plating, a neat and simple process. Filed for future use.:naughty:

    Great work man. That painting trick really took me by surprise.
    The old style CPU block is a great touch and I wonder how long it will be before they reintroduce an improved version of it.

    @Hero1 - Probably never. It uses a ton of copper and relies on a precise fit on the tube, which means it's probably cast. Cast plexi tube is expensive.

    Thanks Cown. I like to challenge myself to new things :thumb:

    Thanks Kviker. It's a silk floss :rock:
