Ah, ok so psu will be fine.
Can you tell me what you used to stick them designer acrylic back plates to your cards.
Twins look cool and ready to rock. :-)

8-o) well that sounds simple enough.

Just thought you needed to use some heat resistant stuff.

If i make an aluminium backplate and stick it to my card will it be ok,using the double sided stuff like you mentioned ?

Thought I would do a quick assemble to see were everything's at...

Today I refitted the bottom rad and got the cabling done. Next step is to get the copper pipe measured, cut, bent and fitted...

Looking great, down to the tricky pipe bending. I'm sure you will do it justice. ;-)

Hi guys..
 
Still no further updates on the tubing as I am having a nightmare of a time with the copper pipe.. I am through all 3 meter of it with no usable pieces to show!
 
I have ordered another lot of "easy flare" pipe which has a thinner wall, lets hope things go a tiny bit better..

Definitely impressed by the quality of the acrylic! The holes are perfectly aligned and the finish is flawless!
 
Also included was a few modding "extras" ;)

Almost done..

 

While I'm waiting on the last of the watercooling stuff to arrive I had a go at making some sli bridges..
 
Definitely feeling the "less is more" feeling with this one.. ;)

Also had to move a few things around to re-position the pump under the res..

Ye I agree less is best for the Sli bridge. Are you going to be using the rig for gaming or is it a competition rig. :-)

Hi Andy

 

It's just a normal home rig.. Hilbert at guru3d said I should enter "Rig Of The Month" so I might get it in there for a bit of fun, but I never ever though it would be good enough for any compitition!!

Believe me, this build is worthy of any competition. I've been to a few computer shows and there custom builds ain't as good as this. Enter and the prize will be yours :-)

Well it's been great viewing and worthy of any competition. Some ingenious modding skills and themes. Well done and have fun, showing it off and of course, playing games on it.

Thanks
Andy ;-)
