mascotte_zpsbe777b8b.jpg

loll....... not sure if I will tolerate him in my computer, maybe use him as mascot?????

I did some OC test this morning, (2AM)

and without any effort, I reach 1375mhz with 1.2v on Galaxy Bios with 75c at full load

stress test for 50 minutes and no issue, now need to test it in games

I did some 3dmark bench at 1320mhz on gpu and 4.5ghz on cpu and not so far from my tri-fire 7970

an sli of these will destroy tri-fire, im pretty sure

So, the earlier pics were done with a point-and-shoot! What camera? and what's your method! All of your shots look fantastic. Oh, one other question... when did you win the lottery? lol

Hate to be that guy but the blue on the capacitors on the GPU stick out like a sore thumb. Maybe rub it off with some alcohol? Anyways very sexy build once again Snef

I forgot to say, this build is not finish, still lot of work

Your photography skills seem really good considering you're not using a DSLR. Great job though, always nice to see something original!

I think they look really nice!

Sorry didn't realize you were taking them with a SLR, guess that's why they look so good!

If you don't have a Macro lens you might want to get one to play around zooming into things like the sleeving or something. I got a Sigma 300mm lens for my Nikon D5100 for around $140 on Amazon. They have a version for Canons also for around the same price.

I haven't used the macro function much but I did play around shooting my sons toy cars and it turned out amazing just messing around with it.

With a Macro lens you can take pictures you didn't was think possible with your camera.

Either way, that build is just amazing and you could shoot it with a disposable camera and it would still make most of us foam at the mouth.

Honestly, I have no idea lol. It wouldn't surprise me if they did. Something with a small amount of flash memory.

Hey Snef, with the thermal armor: Did you sand it down or prime it or do anything before applying the white rust-oleum paint, or just sprayed it? And did you clear coat it after or just left it as-is?

 

Also, how well did the back piece fit in the case? It looks flush with the tray, is it a perfect fit or did you have to leave the screws a bit loose to accommodate it?

 

Curious about all this because I'm also doing a build in an S5 (I asked you a couple BitFenix Recon questions via PM a few weeks ago) and already have the thermal armor ordered, just curious what to expect when it gets here.

I wouldn't sand it as it has a texture but rather use self etching primer and paint it whatever color you want and I would personally clear coat it unless you want a flat black or something.
