    Mmmm learning another paint trick. You're doing an awesome job, as always.

    I thought about doing something like this, it will depend upon on heatsink / fan and # of gpus we get. I'm predicting real "cramped" :)

    Quite easy to do. They make them all the time on Brass Goggles. Some are actually working tubes/valves or just drill the base for a bright LED.

    Quick question - I see those hex bolts a lot around here - what are they and where do you get them?
    Apologies for the OT :blush:

    Not really off topic if it's something to help out.

    They are called hex head cap screws in the US - even if they aren't screws. Also called Hex Head bolts.
    In the US they come from the local home building stores, Ace Hardware, and on-line from everywhere now that you know the name to look for.

    In Australia we just call them Hex Bolts or Hex Screws, even Allen Bolts or Allen Screws because the tool we use to tighten them we call an Allen Key or an Allen Wrench, you Americans will call it a Hex Wrench or something similar.

    PSU turned out great Bill. Looks 100% better with the paint job, the new fan and the grill.

    The PSU looks so good. It has to be one of the most unique PSUs I have ever seen.

    I am going to have to do something like that to my personal PC...:thumb:
