Okay yesterday's update!

I removed the stock heatsinks on the motherboard to replace it with the MIPS waterblock. I have to say this block look is stunning!

BEFORE


NAKED


AFTER


Sorry for the blurry pictures


Second job was the installation of the blocks on the 580's...and I hit a "rock"

The first one was the Heatkiller and it was a charm to install and DAMN it looks good

The second one was the Aquacomputer one and this is where I hit a "rock"...one of the screw post near the processor failed on me and I still don't know how. So I went online and bought a second Heatkiller and since I will have 2 Heatkiller block I also bought a Heatkiller bridge ....so this little "rock" cost me some money but it is what it is...

Here's some pictures of the GPU's

The 2 GTX 580 with the blocks (of course the one with the Aquacomputer block is for archive now )


And the precious


Here you see what broke on the Aquacomputer block




That's all for now. Next step is CPU block and radiators/fans installation...


I leave you with an artsy shot just for the kick of it
