    It probably looked at him cross, I'd say it deserves it.

    Dumo, let us know results!

    Just replacing the stock coolers on my 7970s and I snapped this from my s4, thought it was kind of nifty

    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)

    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. :D

    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.
    [​IMG]

    As you can see, there are some places where the nickel has faded off and copper showing through. More of that in the spoiler

    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.

    All done :D

    Interesting. Think I'll stick with copper blocks. Besides, I use a silver coil and I hear they don't play well with nickel.

    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 :laugh: :respect:
