    I've embedded your enormous Dropbox images in your post, however I'd recommend using a more suitable image host like Photobucket, Imgur or Flickr. Otherwise your thread will take ages to load and kill browsers :thumb:

    [​IMG]This is not the placement for the Bitspower Logo but a handmage done with dremel and some paint.
    I will be using Bitspower Fittings, Reservoir and other components from them. They simply just have the best fittings available in my opinion :)

    Just a small update for you all. Only few days until I get my camera so bear with me here for the quality.
    I am redoing the paint job on the sidepanels and am using Metallic pearl flake VIOLET = Indigo blue.
    After that I will put three times of clearcoat for that extra oompfff.
    Oh yeah and I will give you a sample of Mayhems die :)

    [​IMG]


    here you can see the Pearl affect

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Only one drop of Mayhems Purple

    [​IMG]


    One drop of Mayhems ocean blue + Purple together

    [​IMG]


    To me it looks Indigo blue and that is not blue, and not purple but just in the middle or mixed together LOL

    [​IMG]


    Pics of the Die from Mayhems:

    Thats it for now.

    Thanks for stopping by

    Hi everyone. Today is Good day like most are. For me specially because I got Things to show of and tell about.
    My sponsor Mundi @www.icemodz.com got me a Samsung camera for a price that is like he practically gave me the Cam so I can show off me modding in better quality.
    Secondly I bought more Plexi/ Extruded acrylic from 3mm to 6mm >> which is Smoked which I am putting on the front of the case. The clear one I have various sizes and thickness.
    I am going to make the window side Larger and in different shape, also the PSU cover is getting a makeup.

    Here are some Pics with my new Camera :rock:

    :wallbash::wallbash: NOOOOOOOW I am MAD My 280x has died and I just bought it used from a guy two weeks ago. It can't be repaired :waah: I don't even own another GPU or a block :idea:
    I have spent so much on this project. Mainly WC stuff and more and I am not well funded so I do not know what now or when I can finish this.
    Most of the watercooling stuff is in post as I speak...
