Here are the pics of the block now. I don't think I can OCD on this anymore. It is about as clear as I think acrylic possibly can get, which I must say is pretty clear.











The following pic is a crop and a reverse of the one above. So this is being read from the back and side of the block.

Took the rig down yesterday. Started by redoing the GPU block. Sanded it down to 400 grit. Then worked the way up to 3000. Then polished it again. Also repolished the nickel w/ some Autosol. Definitely happy w/ the outcome.

WOW that's some impressive work my friend. So impressive that I now like you slightly less - for bruising my PCgo (PC-Ego) WOW some GORGEOUS work here man. I must ask... LOWFAT do you ever get 'Indecent Proposals'? People looking to have a night alone with your sexy PC...

Unfrosted the reservoir.


Picture of the pump all assembled.


Repolished the LTX.


Pic w/ the CPU block in place.



Had to modify the tubing a bit to fit, but not much work. I honestly think this monster pump/stand looks pretty decent here. Makes the case look slightly less empty.


And the sleeved acrylic tube. Relatively confident this won't leak :p. Had to drill out the compression rings a bit. The sleeving needs to be perfectly cut, perfect length, and a perfect melt. With this though it was relatively easier to install, it definitely won't pull out of place.

Damn it!!! Why didn't I see this posting and that you could polish acrylic - it looks amazing! I would've (tried) to do it to my two main acrylic blocks (SLI bridge and dual pump cover).

Just awesome Lowfat.
