    Cheers for the reply, hmm I guessed the answer would be ''bloody carefully'' :D :D I'd be tempted to either paint it especially where the slot is not going to be used or carefully dry brushing it otherwise which might not give quite the same coverage but would cut down on the chance of paint getting into the slot compared to painting it directly with a brush full of paint, and might give interesting results.

    Though having recently flogged all my old GW/Citadel mini's from ~20years ago I've come to the realistation that my eyesight is no near as good as it use to be and I thought I was quite a dab hand at painting back then, taking sometimes a few days to a week over something like a Hive Tyrant or Avatar especially when painting for 'money'.

    Hopefully painting a PCIe slot wouldn't be quite so taxing on my eyes :idea:

    no doubt - great design, great modding skills, wonderful attention to details - the complete package :clap::clap::clap: the light panel with a water channel is beautiful and having the gpu mounted vertically is simply brilliant! excellent work, dude :thumb:

    Quick question, which side of the 6mm acrylic did you adhere to the mirrored panel? The smooth side or the sanded side? Thanks.

    Wonderful, just wonderful!

    Covering up the boards and with such great plexy work! .. it reminds me of Defyant's stuff

    I always wondered why almost every GPU has been made with the "wrong" side up and wished for a solution .. a great one!

    First of all, amazing build, such an inspiration!

    I do have a question about that lovely waterchannel tho. How wide is it? I am thinking about trying to copy that, if i may ;), in a future build, and since i have no idea about the math behind, i wanted to find something that worked for someone else, and just sorta replicate it.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hey, what an amazing build! Alot of eye for detail, I love that! I also got a question: Where did you get the mesh from? Looking for alot of mesh for my build.

    That's the mesh I'm talking about.

    Once again, amazing job you did there!
