    Very cool.. Your purchasing parts and I am purchasing groceries, I feel a bit depressed reading your PL. I could shoot/post pictures of frozen pizza's, but your SSD's are much more fun to look at. :lol:
    Can you share your "out of pocket" expense for this machine with us?.. My guess is about (perhaps over) $10,000US..
    MS (I am eating one of those frozen-pizza's as we speak)..

    My 2cents.,
    I think those GPU covers are terrific! Close up, far away, any way!
    But ( there's always a "but") They would look even better if they
    extended over the edge (where possible) on the two most visible
    sides IMHO. Though I don't know how this would be done.

    Great work! :thumb:

    +2 agreed too. Try to make them bend over the edges so that we only can see pure delicious copper and then the waterblocks.. Yummi :)

    Nice work, can't emphasize that enough, splendid, envious-provoking and salivaproducing stuff!

    All ready has - look at all the learning. Knowledge gained cannot be removed.

    @oldnewby & murtoz & Frido - Thanks guys, I have a couple ideas to finish off these additions. But I wont be making new ones to hang over the edges - I do agree with you though, just wish I had thought of that before.

    @Dark~3nergy - It's a means to an end... and I have plans for this project and the credibility that will come with it.

    @Htr-Labs - Like I mentioned before, I wont be adding the audio until I move back to Vancouver (next april) - the cash will be flowing again by then for all the toys that I desire.

    @turboshifter - I have already - and in the next year you'll see.

    @jhanlon303 - I couldn't agree more... but I have some other plans to go with it.

    You do need to keep us posted on how much it weighs! H2O and CU are not light. I know it's early but got a rough weight now?

    Bet you can't top mine though...

    LMK if you need a RAID card suggestion, Jesse. I've got a bit of knowledge in that area.

    You guys should see what's going in my next build though... 100 drive support anyone?

    Replied in the thread.

    When I unveil my stuff, even though it's old-school it'll be enough to drop some jaws...

    Lol I call people broseph...

    That sounds very very tempting... I don't have any decent cans (and my ATH-EC7's certainly don't count...lol). But I recently -a few months ago- blew my audio budget on a pair of Paradigm Signature Series S4 speakers, a Yamaha A-S2000 amp, and a Yamaha CD-S2000 CD/SACD player - I got them at cost but I still don't have the coin right now. That said - I really want to get a headphone amp (compatible with my MD player) and some cans.
