    I must say Langer, the GTX280 covers have grown on me, you definately need them in there.

    The hosing and cabling is awesome, It looks factory made.

    I hope the Aqua computer flow sensor will get treated with some black paint, because as it is now its like a thumb in the eye!

    This is one of those awesome project logs where new hardware like CPU and GPU become out dated before the case is finished! lol!

    ohh man it is great to back and see the wonderful-ness continues! what a great read!

    i find it funny how there was a whole audio sound conversation going on. why not just a huge EAW rig next to this computer =] problem solved.

    i cant believe ur budget is so large, but not surprized since is all copper.

    just wondering, since Intel released their awesome new core i7 sexy-ness, have u considered it? I know that u got costumed ram and heat sinks, but, it will be totally awesome to see that here ^__^.

    @craigbru - Thanks man!

    @Burnout21 - Actually I'll be making some new GFX stealths from copper and carbon. The flow sensor wont be visible when I'm done, but I'll still -try- painting it black. I say try because polypro doesn't like adhesives or paint, just about nothing sticks to it.

    @nikeunltd - I wont be upgrading this system at all. I'll be starting a new project soon after its complete though. =)

    @Htr-Labs - I'm undecided whether that's genius or creepy... haha

    Hiding TP is definitely creepy! [​IMG]

    Hiding things from yourself borders on 'modding'! That's probably why we eventually end up with 2 or 3 or 4 somethings. I showed my two nibblers - stash overflow. ALthough, after a few years and some growing laziness it's just easier to 'BUY ANOTHER ONE' [​IMG]

    Rico from Watercool told me today that my PrometheusCU edition Heatkiller rev3.0 was shipped and is on it's way to me.
    I also had Rico send me some pics of his shop...

    First up, here's the link to the watercool website:
    *click for link*

    the Watercool workshop - Rico's left the captions up to me because he says his English isn't very good.

    Outside the shop:
    [​IMG]

    What looks to be a couple of 5-axis CNC mills - some very impressive equipment for the machinist among us. You can see a bunch of what look to be GTX280 waterblocks in the bins:

    This looks like some delrin Heatkiller 3.0 tops.
    [​IMG]

    A bigass bending break, a piece of equipment that I REALLY REALLY want.
    [​IMG]

    A hydraulic drop saw, cutting what looks to be delrin slabs for waterblock tops:
    [​IMG]

    A CNC lathe... another bit I'd kill to own:
    [​IMG]

    A MASSIVE CNC metal stamping punch making waterblock details, and mounts:

    To be recycled scrap metal and shavings:

    Some of you asked for some interior shots of the Heatkiller 3.0 CoolingMasters.com did a quickie review of the block and took pics of the inside:

    Stainless Steel or Nickel, I'll let you know when I get mine. It looks like stainless steel.

    Thats a rather sweet workshop, and a nice block aswell. I'd feild a guess that its stainless steel, like for EK's Supreme accelerator plate.

    I've seen almost all of that equipment but not all in ONE shop. :jawdrop: Usually 3 or 4. You really need to become best friends with these people! :naughty:

    I just caught this re-reading.

    Does anyone except me find this intimidating?
    How would YOU top this? I couldn't fathom how!

    @Inf3ction - Thanks man!!

    @John - now now old timer... it's not a contest ;) hehe.

    I 'finished' the GFX power lines.

    I added the quotes, along with some slack in the lines, because I'm going to solder the wires to the cards... to clean it up a bit.

    The heatshrink is also temporary

    The tools I used:
    [​IMG]

    Here's my 'needle nose crimp job':
    [​IMG]

    Add solder:
    [​IMG]

    Result:
    [​IMG]

    Here are the wires in place, the heatshrink needs to be finalized, but I cut all the wires on an angle so they feed in the correct direction out of the PSU without straining.

    I'm also going to relocate the little black cable clips on the motherboard tray - to be neater.

    Thanks for reading. Tune in soon - NEXT I tackle the soldered ATX and 12v lines! =)

    A very impressive workshop he has there. I too would kill for that sort of equipment at my disposal lol ;).

    Cabling is looking fantastic, you have put a lot of thought into how you are doing it. It is really paying off.

    Isn't there a corrosion problem like when copper and aluminium parts are in the same loop?
