    Very, very nice work!

    Are you going to put on some chunky feet to give the radiator a bit more room to breath?

    Really like what I'm seeing with the mod so far, looking forward to seeing how it progresses.

    Excellent little mouse you've been given there.
    Been using mine for about 2 years now and so far I haven't found a mouse that I like the feel of more, it just fits into the hand so perfectly... the only thing I would of liked more is for the macro recording button to be on the right hand side, as there is plenty of space for it there and my little finger is lonely being the only finger without a button. :D

    Wow, what are you doing to your Gpu?? Looks complex that's for sure.

    Now this is my kind of modding right here.


    That my friend is a voltmod on the GPU so that one can push more volts than are normally achieved via SW when benching under extreme conditions.

    :D

    What kind of glue or epoxy is covering the wires and soldering? Even with water cooling, that could get hot enough to come loose, depending on what it is.
