    Yeah, I have to go with CP and Assassin. I own the HK block and love that thing to death. Very nice cooler and all around better chose then the Dtek IMHO. Unless you can get a Acrylic top to show everything off! lol

    I'll have to get with a friend, and fellow TPu'er to see if he's still going to try and do the Acrylic top for the Heatkiller.. I have his Dtek one and love the look.

    Yeah, I've seem to have made a huge project log out of nothing.. But, love to hear what people think about. No matter how crazy it may sound. You learn ton's from making a project log. I've learned that from that one. Oh, and you know you love my Mock up :roll:

    Sleeving took some time to get use to.. Not that it's hard, but just a pain... I kept on strippin' the wire then trying to sleeve it... lol..

    Best of luck

    yo bro!
    personally i think HeatKiller will be better, in design and spec according to your RIG feel!
    will make it more, techy and decepticonist! lol ..
    unless u might consider Koolance CPU350 Acetal.
    am using it, OC to 4.3Ghz idle at 37-38'c full load at 45-50'c
    it's summer here in HK extremely hot like 30'c, maybe could be better during the winter!

    Thanx bro,
    its a GTX 260 bro,yep its a Dedicated physx card,im not gonna watercool it since it will mess up the loop pattern for the quad 295s,if only they're 295 Co-op (single PCB) i would WC the 260 (step up maybe?) I got some idea from my co-workers quad 295 loop.

    Hey zup bro,I just got an Idea how to make the SB/NB block black.
    I listed this http://www.mnpctech.com/Black_Vinyl_Film.htmlBlack vinyl film.
    [​IMG]
    I have to confirm 1st if it will affect the blocks perfo.My theory is it won't.will it?:confused:

    thats not a bad idea, I really don't see how it can hurt its performance either.

    Wow, i'd love to braid my Silverstone. Worried it'd void the warranty though...

    Excellent work man, great camera skills too.
