    Well, speak of the devil. :p
    Nice!

    Have you've dropped the acrylic parts you made earlier? I mean the stripes on the mesh...
    It looks good now, and it looked good then... so I'm not shore which I liked the most. Hehe.

    morning all


    well made a few decisions today regarding the coolant adn it colour... was origioanlly going for a uv orange collant but then i thought about it and change that to Black not your average colour i know but all the pipe work will be wraped in this

    http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/catalog/popup_image.php?pID=762&image=1

    orange uv coils!!! ummmm orange. still having problems looking for a block for the vrm but i am willing to forget it for a little while i can always hack the origional heat sink up


    also on order http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-034-AR&groupid=701&catid=57&subcat=399

    for £10 you cant moan and its specs are exactly that of the corsair one for half the price.

    chipset now sorted as the xspc chipset block should fit so ordered one of them to.

    thats it for time being more again when i can or when i have some more photos

    good morning all


    well i managed to get a small amount done yesterday in preperation of things arriving on tues!! firstly i installed the small 160mm rad in the front. had never installed it prior to this and was mega lucky as my quick release system was close (mega close)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    you may also notice that the 360 rad is installed also!but still gotta shorten the bolts that hold it in place maybe on tuesday morning

    pump is now installed also. but replacing the barb on right with right angle one i think all depends how tubing goes!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    now this is one crazy looking face!!!!

    [​IMG]

    try to imagine these fans as white led ones yeah

    only two more components left to get still but no cash spare atm still cpu and hdd

    thats it for now i'll update again on tuesday as i need to spend some time with the girlfriend think ive neglected her for past few weeks...........

    [​IMG]

    it does work but due to its design and circitry i decided not to mess about with its eject but so have install a small 2mm hex bolt to confuss the missus :D shell be tryin to push it when you need to turn it slightly :D

    also forgot to mention a few weeks ago that i got my hands on a very cheap but very good sound card. £20 for the Xfi extreme music

    then why if you go to google and type shelby gt500 does it come up with such a large number of owners?

    because as far as i know the car does exist... in 67 it didnt quite look like that specific car they used for Gone In 60 Seconds but the car WAS around in 67...


    oh and mods lookin pretty kick ass mate! keep up the good work

    cheers man

    well yesterday was one off the worst dsays ever and it ended real bad..... while walking up my stairs i felt a real nasty tearing noise and that was it in a heap on the floor....pain corsing through my leg! doctors have said that ive torn a ligament in my knee!!!....FROM WALKING UP THE STAIRS!!!!!!! doesnt get much better than that!

    but onto brighter things. yesterday while i couldnt do much else i fixed the bittom 240 rad into place along with feet

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    but it wasnt to end all that bad. After some problems with delivery drivers (gotta love those welsh drivers) as they tried to deliver my goods to the wrong house! i managed to actually get some goodies and here we go

    [​IMG]

    2 bottles of fesser uv black....amazing price off £4.99 checkout /www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/catalog/

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    orange uv coils

    [​IMG]
    memory fan for a very reasonable £9.99

    now this is something that caused me much grief....over in usa this baby cost around £15 over here....£34 nice little vrm block tho
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    chipset waterblock....most likely will be going on southbridge

    now i decided on a 500gb hdd as i dont use alot off space anyways and im going to reclaim one from my old pc
    [​IMG]

    and a hdd fan to cool it down
    [​IMG]

    now this was my little treat a 30gb ocz ssd. going to be used for the os and benchmark tests

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    evening all

    even though i have a buggered knee a broken board i wasnt going to let that stop me....oh no.


    so getting myself sat down i decided to install the two hard drives!!! only to fing out that the seagate one wont install with the hdd fan on.......i'll find a way yet:dremel:

    [​IMG]

    and i thought i'd install the MCubed T-Balancer bigNG

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    while placing the rad back into place i had to make a executive desision! it seems that i need to think about doors again...luckly the main gull wing door opens and closes fine but the rear one didnt.....god knows why i tried everything. and it seem to be the 360 rad. even tho when i tested it all before paint it worked......so it wont be gull wing for time being even tho it isnt that big of an issue it kind of grated on me.

    [​IMG]

    now theres not much more i can do now until i get the board back so hope you like what you seen so far and let me know

    cheers all

    now considerin i cant walk or stand for long periods of time this was a very welcome relief!!!

    i recently purchased the pyscopack cable sleeving kit from murdermods.eu was a tad expensive £44 but in my opinion it was worth every single penny. as the last cable braining kit i seemed to have a nast reaction to (something with glass fibre)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    its acutally not as much as you think. but you can sleeve an intire psu!! so all is good

    24pin... took around hour

    [​IMG]

    have also done 8pin and two pci cables.... waiting for 2 new black pci plugs as one pin got stuck inside :sigh:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    camera shots are poor i know.... using my phone!

    well its gonna be a real tight queeze in this one! mega tight!!

    hopefull willl have board back by next week so will have a real good update for you all and should be able to walk :D
