    Couple of quick pics on polishing progress before I head to the Pearl Jam concert tonight. Looking forward to it. With Eddie Vedder, ....you're never quite sure exactly what he's saying....but you know it must be important. :rolleyes:

    Worked on the GPU's and CPU yesterday. And yes....that means more GoT. Not enough of the dragon girl in the last episode. She's my favorite. Anyway....here is what the block looked like to start...

    [​IMG]



    Disassembled it....

    [​IMG]



    This is a before polish picture. The face of the block was already very smooth. But you see all those machining marks in the water channel? Those have to go....

    [​IMG]



    ....and.....they're gone. :D

    [​IMG]



    The CPU block came out like glass. Crystal clear. The Supremacy EVO is an amazing looking block. The design of it is really nice also. I polished up the plastic innards also.

    These are going to look AMAZING with the pink coolant. Soon. Very soon.

    Now....I'm off to hear Eddie mumble.....

    I was looking at your other log and noticed the white shrink in between the SATA power plugs and wanted to share what i believe is the only build that put color in the spaces in between and im not sure if you need to on this or not, but would like to see someone try with regular (not paracord) sleeving to see if itll work or not...

    Sorry for the cruddy pics

    There are ton's more in his build log on OCN. Don't think he replicated it here. But the wiring work in this build is sick....

    Yea, but those have shrink in them. Can shrinkless be done with reg sleeving?

    Probably not with these punch down style of connectors.....not enough room to cover the melted portion.

    I wanted to keep the I/O cover....cuz it looks boss. So I dremelled off the pipe that led to it from the VRM Heatsink.

    [​IMG]

    I hope that board has never been powered up...unless you put saran wrap underneath them.

    Yes, it's been powered up and used for some gaming already! But I have the utmost in confidence that everything will still be fine.

    Got the EK blocks on the ASUS DirectCUII 780Ti's!

    [​IMG]



    ASUS + EK = <3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    The EK backplates are also sexy as hell....and fit my theme perfectly....

    [​IMG]



    Again I say......ASUS + EK = <3

    [​IMG]



    The board is starting to take shape. It will be processing the latest Pinterest pins before you know it....

    I swapped out the black terminals for some of the new'ish clear terminals. They look amazing and I can't wait to see some pink fluid flowing through here....


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Still lovin' my custom black and pink Dominator Plats....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    With the cards in slots #1 and #5 positions, you can still get a great view of the southbridge block right between the GPU's.

    Oooh, pretty!

    Have you re-coloured one of the on-board buttons pink (last pic) or is it the original red, with a slight camera oddness? If you're recoloured it, kudos to you for the attention to detail :D

    It's still the normal red. If someone can think of a clean way to turn it pink....I'd give it a try. I don't think "paint" would look normal or natural on it.
