That's going to look really nice when you get your sleeving and cable management done.

I'm one sad panda.

I dunno why more people don't do yellow/gold/black builds. It's my favorite combo....

I guess because there is not much hardware out there for it. At the time of this builds conception I was originally planning with the ASRock OC Formula but I decided that the MSI board was much sexier and wallet friendly. :)

That's why I chose the theme though because I wanted something different from the norm blue or red. :)

But yeah I'm surprised I haven't really seen any Black/Gold builds with the ASRock boards.

Hehe I will get around to it. I have been too much fun actually using my PC. I went without it for several days there which felt like an eternity!

In other news I got to see what my custom GPU backplate looks like! SHould I get the MSI logo lasered cut out of there as well? Or how about no nvidia but just MSI logo? Or just leave it as is. I am thinking of ordering 2 instead of just 1 jicase. :P

That looks absolutely awesome!!! Who's cutting that out for you, and how will it ultimately mount to the card? (Is it as simple as removing the existing screws to install it with some spacers?

Here ya go wilson. His work can be found here. He even paints them and everything. I've even seen dual layered plates with awesome color accents. To be honest I am not sure how it will mount but TONS of people use them. It looks as though it only uses 4 screws through the backplate. It should be that simple as that.

He can do anything and everything custom you could dream of. Backplates, reservoir faceplates, test benches, power supply covers, AIO watercooling brackets for video cards. I've even seen an awesome little custom itx tower for water cooling rig.

Dwood is awesome. Fantastic work at extremely low prices. I don't understand how he can make any money with the materials and such that he provides, but hey, I won't complain because he does awesome work.
