    Didn't plan to do anything today but received a package and my fingers started to tingle :)

    Still in love with the red GT fins
    Problem is I promised to watercool them. :p

    [​IMG]

    But an idea popped in.
    Hmm Corsair uses M2.5 ... Don't have them and certainly not longer ones :\

    [​IMG]


    Ok re-tap them with M3 ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    That works, now the rest.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The fins work fine, they get pretty hot when cutting them :)

    [​IMG]


    And done.

    [​IMG]


    An EK block with some rad fins I love :)

    I effin love the Dominator GT colors, I can only buy them because the other RAM color schemes are ugly in comparison :)
    Nifty job you did there with the heatsink

    Small update :)

    Drilling and tapping the small radiator to M4.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And back to the MarsII block :)

    Daniel has been very busy with it last week.
    Really this guy owns :p

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Copper part done.

    [​IMG]


    While he was busy with this I had to think of something for the POM part.
    Got a spontaneous idea to recycle the red aluminum parts from the original cooler.
    Off course with paint :)

    [​IMG]


    Daniel didn't know what to think of it but we went for it
    Time for me to measure again :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And re-measuring. That guy thinks about everything.

    [​IMG]


    And the result.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Daniel really liked it a lot at the end too, I'm completely in love! :)
    Here the renders.

    What do you guys think about it?

    Only thing he wants from me is as much possible friends on Facebook, so please go ahead if you can guys ;)
    Mr3D a.k.a. Daniel!

    I like it, a generic WB on it would make it blend into the other generic Video Cards, if you watch this one you get the feeling, and the certainty, that there is something with a strong kick under the hood :)
    Awesome idea I'd say :toast:

    That waterblock looks amazing....can't wait for the end result. The only thing coming to my min now...is a plexi logo across the center...illuminated.

    That would be awesome with a custom L3p L4n logo, but would probably suck if you ever decided to resell it. Otherwise you could do an Asus Mars logo.

    Just before reading your post I was thinking the same thing. Also the fact that you won't even need coloured coolant for it. You could go clear and have the plexi in red with white illumination. Although the clear plexi and tubing with red coolant and white lighting would look great.

    And another small update :)

    The top panel.

    Was walking around for a while with this idea. Want the plexi window to be flush with the black brushed aluminum.
    But with only handwork I don't see it succeed. 0.5mm difference will be visible.
    So decided to let the plexi be lasered and then try to get the window in by hand. (Thanks Brian!)
    Will also take the opportunity to let the small logo's be lasered too, no names, just logo's.

    This is the idea

    [​IMG]


    Then first of all I want to thank Daniel and Ivo again for all the effort. Even till now ( :p ) they still have fun in doing this :)

    Blocks for the POM Top and the aluminum backplate.

    [​IMG]


    And the milling :)

    [​IMG]


    Still a bit rough.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    After some sanding.

    [​IMG]


    Never saw a backplate without bolts or holes in sight before :) (Daniel ftw!)

    [​IMG]


    The plan is to get it anodized in black and then mill in something.

    [​IMG]


    And then the POM block. Some more explaining here.
    For example this is 1/100 of the code the machine will go to create the block. ;)

    First a rubber cord a little smaller then the block is placed on the workspace.
    This so the machine can suck it vacuum to the plate, off course it shouldn't move a mm.

    [​IMG]


    First the holes and the basis shape.

    [​IMG]


    Then adjust the rubber cord so the machine can go on.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And milling again.

    [​IMG]


    The result.

    Small update :)
    (Slowly we're getting there)

    First of all I want to announce a new sponsor .. Corsair!
    After the Bit-Tech MOTY they contacted me for sponsoring this project.
    (If you only knew how glad I am with this!)

    [​IMG]


    And one day later :)

    [​IMG]


    Quick preview.

    [​IMG]


    This weekend first saw it in and then a very lot of sanding I guess.

    [​IMG]


    And another test.
