    Looking good. Cold weather and painting really don't go hand in hand. The paint doesn't flow correctly and it takes ages for it to dry. I have been painting a bit in the cold and I usually just apply the paint outdoors, then I move the parts inside where it's warm, let it flow out and dry.

    well this morning ive been up earl packing and applying last few coats of paint! but due to the fact that its damn cold ive wacked the heating up inside to a nice toasty 35'c which has warmed garage up no end :D

    my missus wasnt happy when she came in to find radiators hanging all aover the garage last night so remembered i had a big old box in storage from a sofa i had delivered

    [​IMG]

    and thus it makes a handy little paint booth!

    [​IMG]

    3rd coat of orange......(its bloody bright!!!)

    [​IMG]

    5 coat of orange..... its blows as needs few more layers but run out of the bloody stuff

    [​IMG]

    well thats it for me for a while :waah: not on i have to go work else where for a bit, but least i should have a few things when i get back.......and i can check up on site on my mobile

    untill then have a good one people

    @mino oh hell yeah its mega bright i specifically chose this colour for its brightness, plus 4 layers of pure white base really helps it pop out at ya!!

    @cheaps...........a pair of glasses for ya :hip:

    @e.e.l ...... yeah loud colours are awsome... need to be eye catching at same time tho. and it works

    LOL
    You're famous!
    Until september 2008 I was the second chef at http://www.hotel-continental.it/ , two kitchen, 6 cooks, 130 customers only at the beach restaurant...
    A really PITA, trust in me!
    Now I'm working for an industrial bakery, I'm the head controller , now I've more free time!
    I hope that you'll set up your design studio soon, make the cook for 18 years wasn't easy, trust in me...

    Cheers Mino

    yeah i know its killing me having no social life at all... plus my mind is going at 10mph with idea designs and concepts. gonna start it out off my garage and doing local markets to get money coming in! now just need to get my hand on more tools!!!

    oh in mean time i have been informed that a sad thing has happened, i was talking and working with Aquapcs.co.uk regarding the cooling of my motherboard, but alas due to the financial market at the moment it seems that it has finally taken its toll on them and thus have ceased trading. it is a sad day my fellow bit tech folk when something like this happens. apart from the cooling off the motherboard being put on hold.. i really feel for a big company when this happens.

    i will inform you all when im back and have a worthy update! but in mean time give it up to Nitrix for the future!!

    cheers

    Degen!

    ok due to lack of money in this now i'll explain. origionally i was planning a 3 loop setup cpu, gpu's, chipsets... but as i said now due to money its going to be one massive loop!!!! and this is how it goes

    res> pump> 3fan rad > cpu > two fan rad > graphics > two fan 160 rad > chipsets > res

    this way at least the water is cooled again before each component. im not sure how well this method is going to work but have seen a few builds do it this way.

    more soon:D
    degen
