    Thanks, man!

    ;)

    Hahah...perfect? It's not totally done. I have plenty of cleaning to do and finalize a few things in it. Scratchbuild's coming really soon.... trust me on that.... ;)

    Thanks, mate!

    Hahaha, thanks man. The LED on the GPU I'd never touch anyways; I may be crazy, but not that crazy, lol! I'll never see it in back. Like I had stated before, the hose-coil spacing is being fixed because I'm not completely done with it yet. Light-bleed happens, especially with Lian Li chassis! ;) Yeah, the fangrill in the rear....I've noticed that too. It's just the hub itself. Nothing can really be done about that. I thought of putting a red hub sticker on it, but ditched the idea. It won't matter much anyways, lol. Thanks for the props, Xtrafresh!

    Lol, taking a pair of pliers and squeezing the life out of that LED would be one of the first things you'd see me do. I'm told that replacing a lead is real easy too. I'd very much like to RMA a card once where the red and green lights have been switched around :lol:

    Good call on ditching the sticker idea by the way. Maybe some red UV material could have saved you, but it really really is not worth the effort :hehe:
    I'll go back in lurk mode now, waiting for the final photoshoot :thumb:

    You can cover the green LED with a bit of red plexi.

    I suppose I could. Initially, I didn't have the LED showing at all. When I get new GPU's, I tend to remove the double-slot brackets from them because I hate them and switch them out for a single-slot one. With these new GPU's that have a status LED, I had no way of showing that LED. So that's why I drilled out another PCI slot cover in order for the LED to show through.

    What was that woman's name who went to jail for 'insider trading'?

    I know nothing.

    Ask my wife Marilyn she will testify to that.
