    I love stainless steel but I'm not fond of working with it! You're making it look easy! Very nice work!

    This is great work man! The graphics card looks bad ass with those water blocks.

    I'm interested how exactly the graphics card is going to be supported. I'm working on the GPU I/O cutout of my own scratch build right now. :)

    I also plan on using a flexible riser. Do you have experience with them? How important is shielding?

    Version 2 is in terms of style fitting the other bent pipes so that (for me) would be the only way to go.

    Can I please say that I am sooooo liking that parrallel tubing. :rock:
    I think this is the first time ever I am liking these two separate GPU blocks over a single full cover waterblock. It fits the theme perfectly, it adds to the tubing, it adds to the black and stainless theme. Extremely well executed!

    Version two fits much better with the build.

    hi,

    thank you for all these opinions, not easy to decide, I think I'll choose the v2 is my taste more in line with the rest of the mod.

    yesterday I did my last welds on this mod. I just finished the "large manufacture" will now begin phase finishes followed by a montage + test then finally the painting before the final winding.
