Good focus on samsung ST150f 16mp cam
I really like this picture. It is an angle most don't use. Its a tease. We all know what it looks like but we still enjoy seeing it.
290X full mod
thats not a close up!
Ok, what did you do to that poor card?
All those little wires ... looks like you're torturing it!
It probably looked at him cross, I'd say it deserves it.
Dumo, let us know results!
The ultimate Cocktease right there. One of those might fall into my lap soon.
i won't it's just tooo much money
also i am happy with my Asus GTX 670 4gb DCII for now it does what i want really well but it would be nice, but first i need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 xD
Some Gentle Typhoons up front
And out with the old and in with the new!
Just replacing the stock coolers on my 7970s and I snapped this from my s4, thought it was kind of nifty
and the opposite of sexy, almost 2 years of build up lol
edit: I'm cleaning the block now, and it's getting there. I'll try to remember to repost when it's all clean and sexy again (if it gets sexy again)
That is one shiny GPU!
Block cleaned up nicely
All back together again
Now the other is being cleaned
And a little old school, from a Radeon X300SE 256mb
Looks much better. You use brasso and elbow grease or something else?
Vinegar and elbow grease
I let it sit in vinegar for a little while, scrub a little with a toothbrush, let it sit again, scrub again, rinse with distilled water.
Nice scrub job! And that GPU reflection pic is awesum.
Good information. Does the clear plexi need any cleaning? Perhaps just spritz windex?
There was some nasty on there too, and I used the same method of operation. The acrylic cleaned up much faster that the copper, but I think it was because it was just less dirty.
The vinegar seems to clean up the nickel one too, but it's not as pretty. I think it needs some actual stuff to polish it to make it look sexy, but I'm not going to be able to do that; I've read that Mothers of Flitz is a good meal polisher. I'll add in that nickel block in a few minutes....
This should be the last of the block pics. I should have some new hardware pics coming this weekend, so I'll be sharing those soon
Nickel cleaned from vinegar.
As you can see, there are some places where the nickel has faded off and copper showing through. More of that in the spoiler
Spoiler: More Nickel pics
On the back, there are some nasty spots that don't want to come off. I'm supposing the polish would take care of that, but I don't have the time.
Interesting. Think I'll stick with copper blocks. Besides, I use a silver coil and I hear they don't play well with nickel.
Got Dell S2240M monitor and Kingston HyperX Blu 8 GB 1600 MHz RAM(2 units).
Not much of a close up this time but wanted to share anyway what was on my desk this morning
I too have decided to stick with copper from here on out. I have a new block here and it's copper, and it shall stay that way.
I also have a silver coil, but I don't know if that's an issue with nickel; I've heard people say both, it's fine and it's bad. Whatevs
Too many toys I say
