Seeing your blocks make me wish I had grabbed 2 cards and use those blocks. Who knows, I might do that!

UPDATE OVERLOAD! Did a lot over the past few days and since my computer was down the entire time I couldn't make any updates. Expect a extreme amount of pics.

First I went and re did all of my blocks. I learned better polishing techniques and used better polishing products so I wanted to do them as best as I could. First was the LTX.








Then I did some plasti-dipping. IO ports, water block parts, pcie slot covers, etc.



And the outcome.









Just some random shot



Dood I am not even half way done yet.



Here is the outcome of the repolish of the first GPU block.




The reflection off the top of the block.






A pic comparing the new polished block to the first time I did it.



Testing fitment


and the SLI bridge


sup




The original holes Lian Li had for tubing were too large for buckhead fittings so I'll have to do something my self.



and then by the time I finished the tube light was failing so I only got this one pic.

Yes. I bought some of the actual dipping stuff last fall but when I went to use it a few days ago it had all dried up before I even used it. $25/can too.

I bought some Rustoleum branded plastic rubberized spray the other day, $5/can cheaper. But I have yet to try it out.

I took a bunch more pics w/ some better lighting.





The QDC bulkheads for the SR1 560 hanging behind my desk.








Damn tube is in the way of my photograph.






I said I'd get a brighter pic of the SR1 up top.

Looks beautiful. The face shot is priceless lol.
No powder coat? Or is it left intentionally for light to reflect?
