    A project ends so what to do, start something new;)
    I have been inspired lately by Color and Music. I feel the need for something Green
    and something Devilish. I have always enjoyed the Imagery surrounding the Manalishi
    so here goes my Ideas. Please Search Green Manalishi if unfamiliar with this.
    Pack a Bag and Come Along for a Trip as I best try to Show you a Good Time.:)

    GPU: 2 x EVGA GTX 770's
    PSU: 1000w EVGA G2
    MEM: G.Skill Sniper 16gb 2133
    RES: 2 x Bitspower 400ml
    Rad: 2 x Darkside 360
    Control: Lamptron CF525/FC5
    Pump: 2 x DazMode Storm D5 Vario
    Pump Top: 2 x EK-D5 X Top CSQ
    GPU Blk: 2 x EK FC770 CSQ/EK Bridge Triple Parallel CSQ

    so look forward to that aspect of this Log.

    I start to paint. This is 6 layers starting with Epoxy Primer in black. Next a solid basecoat black. Used wadded up plastic wrap to apply the silver white marblizer. to protect that sprayed
    an intermediate clear coat then applied the Oraganic Green Kandy and finished with a Show Clear.

    looks sweet :)

    a 4770k has the same pricing than a 4790k ( at least in Germany) than who cares if he has a little more power than you need if it is for the same price

    Love the green on the fans and pumps, but damn that rad and those feet, marble paint.. blegh it's sooo ugly.. I'd would have used the same paint as on the fans/pumps instead. (but that's just personal preference.)

    Aren't the feet a bit big/high for the case?

    Thanks tekonivel.:thumb:

    Yep..very green:)

    Good to see you Meelobee.. That pattern may not be to everyone's liking..:)
    Pics make the feet look bigger than actual. I need a some room under there for something.
    Thanks for comments.. Appreciate that.
