Thanks.



This is not an update. Just a bunch of new hardware photographs since I updated the lighting in my room.



































Collected my nibbles for the past 4 months just to take these few photos.

Probably not great for the teeth though.


I took a few more pics of all my polished blocks together tonight.











And just a few of the board

I actually did some work on the case.

Sanding the screw/standoff holes.






Applying the Lab Metal. Stuff sure is not easy to apply.




After it dries though it is really hard. Takes a lot of work to sand it smooth. Pictured here are some screw holes from the original pump that I was no longer using so I am attempting to fix them. I grinded down some fan screws in the holes. Then Lab Metal'ed over them. Then sanded. I will be doing a second application tomorrow morning.


And a few more macros.

Slowly inching my way forward. Hopefully I only have a couple of days of solid work on the case. Getting to the point where I just want it done (again) as the stuff I am doing is so tedious and boring. Trying to persevere though.


Finished all of the Lab Metal'ing this weekend. Was actually getting pretty good at it by my 4th application.

Worked on mostly boring things today. Added a few cable management standoffs to clean up a few of the wires as I didn't like the look of them. Also added a bunch more rivets to the back panel for better fit. Will not post pics of either since no one wants to see rivets. I did however do this. I was damn near pulling my hair in frustration as EK seriously messed up and put the mounting holes behind the pump body.
