OK! The Sleeving Scheme Survey did go very well! I will reveal the winner soon but there was a definite winner!!


Tonight a new one! This time it's regarding the coolant. I don't have a specific color for you but more like a shade idea.

I offer you a few ideas but if somethings pops in your head go ahead.

I will go with Mayhems again since I've always been well served by their products.

A - Blue
B - Green
C - Gray (i'm not kidding)
D - Something else...

Thanks!

Ok mini friday update!

During the week I received my new fans and I like them!!!! I will have some pictures tomorrow.


Also, here's the final sleeving pattern! It's Pattern A who did win. The only difference is that the second 8pin PCIe will have it's blue wire switched for a graphite wire.




One last thing is the coolant color...

A fellow member on OCN "ProfeZZor X" posted an idea that directly blowed my mind since I had forgot that detail (shame on me).

The coolant is going to be Mayhems Pastel Black. It's a direct reminder of the black liquid that was in the urns in the movie Prometheus. It's basically the birth liquid of the Xenomorph specie!!

Small picture update...

As I said earlier, I received my new fans and I really like them! They are the Enermax Twister Pressure PWM.

Awesome fan with a lot of power and pretty quiet versus the amount of static pressure! And in bonus they have removable blades so it make the painting a bit easier

I also had the chance to take my first shots with my new Savage Seamless Paper Backdrop!!!


Here's a few pictures of the fans...BTW the stickers on them will be removed









Next update will have to wait a bit since I need to receive a few things and I have to decide what I do about the watercooling components.

Hi Everyone!

Another update here!

This week I finally received my new airbrush after a stupid backorder story with a store in Ontario, I ended up buying it at ChicagoAirbrushSupply!

It's a beauty!!!






Also my GPU decision was official. In fact it was my number one choice from the beginning but I wanted to see if something would pop...

I present you my MSI GTX 780 Lightning!!







The first GPU picture did not end up like I wanted so I did some HDR on it just for the fun of it ;)



That's it for now, I updated the first post with the new official components. This weekend I should be able to start painting and during the next week I will received my PSU cables and maybe able to give you news on the watercooling components.

Breaking news! This morning, the Xenomorph project received the support of a major partner!



I'm really happy with this news and once again I would like to thanks EK for this!

The parts should arrive next week or so. :)

Thanks FF!

The twister fans are surprisingly quiet for the amount of air they push.

When I will receive my rads, I will try to shoot a video of them in free air and on a rad.

But seriously in my first tests I did run them at 1500rpm and they were pretty quiet!

Here's the data sheet from the test of coolingtechnique.com
