    True, but the dremel looks more appropriate.

    Nice work h3llb3nd4, but I'd expect nothing less from you.:respect:

    You said simple things :laugh:.
    Still a brilliant mod Mk but it seems you lost your way a bit with the simple part.

    Thanks to h3llb3nd4..:respect:

    Ok I laminated the CPU bracket and its curing now (lol, needs 24 hours) I used 2 layers of CF placed at 45deg for an extra bit of strength with a filler in the center and 2 more CF layers on top.

    I got 2 of the heatsinks mounted on the mobo (the holiday messed me up and I need to order the last heatsink mon (Enzo MST-88)

    il post some picts tomorrow of the CPU bracket when I remove it from its mold.(crossing fingers, lol)

    Here is what I got so far

    OMG that cooler looks GORGEOUS. Is it just painted?

    Also, a tad off topic, I was thinking of getting my full copper S-1284EE nickel plated to prevent tarnishing and for some extra bling. Worth it? Some places charge a minimum of $110 for it :banghead:

    Yep, I used a lacquer paint (goes on thinner than Enamel) On my earlier AC Freezer coolers I found no dif in temps when using a reasonable coat of paint (not a big heavy drip all over the place coat, lol)

    I need to get a tripod and learn picts soon as in person its a lot cooler.

    here is a shot of the first freezer with my X800GTO (thats quite a while ago)

    LOL, I just noticed my workbench, dam it was pretty back then...
