    STATUS UPDATE:

    Im holding out on some pictures of some work ive been doing on the project, so I have a bigger update to feast your eyes on! :)

    I have cut the acrylic for the top of the boards waterblock and mounted it.

    I polished the RAD, Waterblock and RPi holders.

    The hose fittings are being machined by a friend of mine, as they are too small for my lathe, really need to buy a CNC one.

    I need to order some coolant, so I will be doing it sometime this week!

    The blocks have not yet seen the platers, but hopefully sometime this week!

    UPDATE SOON GUYS I PROMISE!

    You've probably spent more on this than the 1st prize is even worth. but who cares. It breaks the boundaries of pointlessness and awesomeness.

    I have some nice shots to show you guys, I have a new DSLR so will be taking the final shots with that so hopefully I can give you some nice shots finally! :D

    Sorry for the lack of updates I have just been very busy, as at work we have our new 5 axis laser being delivered and we have had to rip up the floor and move alot of machines to get it to fit! :D

    Exciting times ahead!

    Updates early next week!

    This is just pure amazingness!! I would pay a LOT of money to have a few of these things in my house, all with good healthy overclocks, and all looking super sweet with Pink Raspberry cooling fluid running through their tiny veins!

    Amazing work mate, Im in awe!!

    I am still currently waiting for the hose fittings from my mate, I made the mistake of telling him there not on rush! :wallbash:

    Thanks guys, will let you know as soon as the parts get plated.

    I am currently still holding back the pictures of the assembled thing, as I would like it to be a surprise! :dremel:

    Okay, this is ludicrously filled with awesomeness, I love it. But where's the rad ? It deserves a rad.

    I have realized that everyone who didn't join the contest after seeing this still have a chance to win. The plater could take too long for you to make the deadline.
    *hint* People, get building!
