    Back for a quick update.
    I changed my plans on the MSI back plate logo, due to insufficient space and visibility.
    The graphic cards are very close to each other, I had to modify the Bitspower acrylic sli tube in order to fit too. As you will see I installed EK 's EVGA X58 kit which is acetal + nickel.
    Also my camera gone crazy and I believe is going to die soon as it cant zoom, it stays blur and I
    cant shoot etc etc. I will buy a new one soon, forgive me about the quality at the moment.

    I decided to attach the logo on the side of the cards using the free sli connector slots.
    I used this old sli bridge to take the connectors.

    Then I cut a piece of black acrylic for the logo.

    Printed the logo on a sticker and attached it on the acrylic. That way I will be able to engrave the acrylic more precisely. I will combine a gothic style pattern engraving with a crackle effect silver leaf technique to give the logo a more artistic style.

    I applied the mixtion and while it was needed to cure for 3 hours I glued the connectors using slow epoxy.

    [​IMG]

    Applied 2 layers of silver leaf and with a needle I did the crackling effect (total of 9 hours preparation) . Here are some pictures!

    I hope you like my idea. That way the logo will be visible through the case's window. Till next time, peace and stay cool ;) Thanks for watching and commenting!
