    Hmm, why do I feel like I remember seeing them for over $1,000?

    The bidding started at $100 per. Some took in way higher amounts than others. I think the highest one took in over 3k? id have to google hound it to find out, lol.

    Oh my, my memory is shot. Maybe I didn't see the initial bidding prices, as when I looked they were way up there, simply too much for me at the time. Now? I could definitely afford one, at those prices.

    Tried Googling and even found a page with a direct link to Blizzard's ebay store for the blades, it no longer exists. Somehow we need to find the history, but I don't use ebay enough to be too good at that. lol I even checked "sold listings" and found nothing. D:

    I can't even find my own listing from my purchase history so I think the chances of finding the others are quite slim!

    I should have bought one; my server (Dragonmaw US) sold for only about $270 at the time

    New Project: Video card and RAM are in the mail as of today. Need to find what CPU Cooler I want and what case fans I'm going to use; waiting to order those things until it's all assembled though!

    I'm not sure what you mean by million-dollar-pc.com inspired.

    added two more pics, realized i never posted a pic of the case itself

    and no, not mdpc inspired; developed by two guys on the [H]ard forums and manufactured by Lian Li. Best $200 i've ever spent on a case, EASILY. build quality and little things they thought of when making this are all top-notch

    So the bridge came in today. And for those not in the know, I've long since stopped posting relatively small pictures, so those thumbnails lead to higher res nowadays.

    ...Uh, let's see...

    CPU+motherboard+RAM has been around since forever... the hard drive is also from the same machine... And the reservoir/pump top is still the same! It's a new pump though, a different case, new powersupply, new graphics cards (2x 290X cards!), new radiators, five new fans, different hard drive cage...

    I don't know, do you think it's the same machine if about, err, 4 components are reused?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Who was it who asked for pictures of the 'underside' of the graphics cards, ie the waterblock? Nocturnal, or someone else? I forget. Anyway, it's not easy to get a good shot of it since it's quite a small machine, as it turns out.

    EK+ Noise Blockers. I love it. Those the eLoop fans on the upper rad?

  13. #13053
    Yes. I need to admit I really like the appearance of the sides of the fans, 'cause they've got this real pretty pattern on them...

    Your stuff is looking real pretty there Drunken, but please if you can get one of these! I think it can be mounted on even with your reservoir mod, not a 100% sure though, it would look nicer ^^ Oh and I sent you a PM with my idea for your loop config!

    I've put in an order for some Primochill Acrylic tubing, some tools to bend and cut it and all the likes! I ordered it today and it's already been shipped, yay FrozenCPU! My case is currently off being powdercoated a lovely white(RAL9016 for those in the know), can't wait to get it back!

    EK have a similar piece for this pump/res config. At the current moment just can't afford one right now though, so like other things right now it will simply have to wait for a little.

    EDIT: Out of laziness I decided to try something. Namely, I removed the sticker entirely from it! And now the pump/res looks much better.

    Fair enough! What tubing size do you intend to use with this?

    Undecided, since I'm pondering between hard tubing or soft tubing. If I go with EK's newest line of tubing (a matte black, which seems like a beautiful idea) then there's only one size IIRC. Ideally, I prefer smaller tubing nowadays. I've used 1/2" ID 3/4" OD before, and the fittings are just too damn huge for most waterblocks to fit comfortably.

    Fair enough, in larger builds like mine I feel 1/2"ID 3/4"OD works fine, but for smaller builds I prefer to run smaller tubing.

    Primochill came along with some really interesting Acrylic Tubing that I've ordered, might be something you'd want to look into?

    It's not a matter of the build's size, but ie with my GTX 680s in the previous build I had to use an extension fitting to fit the big fittings, because the sheer size of the fitting made it hang over the PCB on the topside. I'm not very fond of this, even if it does have its own 'character'.

    Smaller fittings are simply going to fit easier on the ports themselves.
