Default GPU and Waterblocks are here!

Well I got my video cards and Waterblocks this weekend, finally got them installed! I went with MSI GTX 480s, which have classified they have "Military class components" All it means is they have higher grade components which reduce the buzz should heard during HUGE FPS moments haha. Pretty good stuff, I also got a Free game in each one, Already have RE5 so I'll be getting Dark Void and Street Fighter IV, pretty sweet!

Here are the pics:


GTX 480

Heatsink and Fan removed:

Just gross amount of Thermal Paste:

This is how to apply thermal paste ;) :

Block is done:

All thats left now is to put them in and put some water in! I'll have pics up of that tomorrow.
