Not quite yet. Still working on CAD'ing the block, I am relatively new to 3D CAD so it is taking me some times to get used to. The rad has arrived (MCR220) and I am currently sanding all of the old paint off. I'll post pics as soon as I have it bare and painted.

Nekkid MCR220!



Just because I can! (Don't worry, I'll rough it up before I paint it. This is what happens when I have lots of 2000 grit sandpaper!)









Just about to start painting it.

As always, this update has been sponsored by Bill Own and MNPCTech

OK, 56K DOOM incoming. Hell, bandwidth caps be warned. I took a LOT of pics.

EK Multi-option res 150ml. Just the perfect size! Wish it came with EK's new packaging....



But hey, it's just a box.... awww who am I kidding I want the new boxes :(





Bubble wrap.



And there she is in the open! Looking pretty good....



Machining marks from the lathe are pretty prominent and delrin imperfections can be seen but they don't actually look "bad".... if anything, they add texture. Although a smooth finish would be preferred...



Threads.



More threads.



Fitting goes here... more on those later.



And more detail of the top.



Stopper fitting that comes stock.... gonna keep this until I can find a black Bitspower top (none in Canada)
.


Through the looking glass....



+Fittings. Looking a lot nicer now!



There's SOME marks due to being extruded or cast (can't remember which) but not enough to see unless you take macros.



Clamps! They don't match the finish of the top and bottom caps.... :/




Anti-cyclone insert. Pics through curved acrylic do funny things....



What, did you expect anything less?






Aaawwwwww yeah. Matte (well, satin I guess.... not nearly what I'd call matte) black!



LED stop fittings.... currently bl00 colour (EWWW)



Nice frosted look. Add some sleeving and an LED change and we should be golden!






1/2ID Primochill tubing. In white of course.







Now, I got the Supreme LT used, so it was not "brand spanking new".



I was not kidding. Quite a bit of junk on it.



Machining is still excellent for a <$50 block.



The base still is good enough to shave on however....



Ugly crap problems? Consider them gone. I left it for ~2 hours in nothing short of high quality Heinz.... bought from Costco in something like a 2L can (not a jug, a can :eyebrow: ).

After....



Sure did it's job well! Don't have a shot of just the bottom (I assembled it quick, don't like leaving stuff out long - cat fur and dust does NOT take long to settle. Case in point, EK res pics... took 15 minutes to get dusty).



LOVING the fittings. Just wow.



Black screws might be in the future....



Internals are as sharp as ever.







And that mirror finish wasn't harmed one bit.

Back to the res....



Fittings!



FITTINGS!



Fittings? Mark on the inside, not sure how that got there. Oh well.



Oh, and one last shot through the acrylic.





LED stop fitting added. Notice the lack of heatshrink, the LED is now white (no b100 for you).




And the LCD poster for the Maximus II Formula...



Reflected on the oh-so-perfect Supreme LT base.



Love that ROG logo.



Hmmm, that text ruins it. Maybe a sticker or something is in order.



Cable, minus sleeve. Should have some of the finest in soon!



Inside.



Not that much there.




12"x12" Honeycomb Modders Mesh




I worked with the modders mesh a bit over the last few days. I LOVE how easy it is to work with - all you need are wire snips (and maybe a file/sandpaper). This piece will cover the 80mm fan holes on the back of the case.



The looks of this stuff are to die for.



Black background = awwwww yeaaaahhh. Looking good. Notice how the "imperfections" around the edges are very minimal - no obvious "stamped" or rounded look on the edges. It may look serrated on the edges to you but remember this macro is close to the size of a postage stamp.



Don't forget the thumbscrews!









On white....







4x Anodized Black Thumb Screws




And last but not least, the MCP355/DDC with an EK top V2.





Gorgeous machining.



Hmmm, marble effect. What's up with that?



And that's all for now! I just got an external HDD to backup all of my data so the new mobo and watercooling are going in THIS weekend. I keep delaying it due to the fact I need my PC for homework and I didn't have my laptop running for the past little while, and the fact I wanted to backup my data before an OS reinstall (duh) but this time NO EXCUSES. I think..... :P


I'd like to give another huge thank-you to Bill Owen and MNPCTech for sponsoring this mod!



PS: I know the WB does change a bit inbetween pictures, I went a little overboard in Lightroom so every pic is a little bit different.

Currently working on the next update, WC'ing is ~60% done being installed. Anyone know what blocks will fit a first revision 55nm (P654 PCB) GTX260?
