2 560s, actually, and possibly an additional 480 (I'm not sure yet if it will fit, it might collide with the M/B width-wise I found out yesterday. But I'm not giving in just yet

May I suggest:
  • drug dealing

  • etc.

Or, alternatively, something legal

Oh snap. Forgive me kind sir. Forgot about the 560s. You have suggested some very lucrative endeavors [except for legal]. However, I would like to be available to enjoy SkyNET instead of having wifey send me pics of it in the slammer! LOL

That is of course an argument against said endeavors. Can't have people who depend on you get screwed by your extra-legal adventures.

In that case, I suggest a combination of patience, persistence and a (legal) job

EDIT: Or several jobs. That's what I've done. /EDIT

Holy crap-balls, this thing is turning out INCREDIBLE!!! Never seen anyone do a mod quite like this to... well... really anything. Sub'd, definitely looking forward to further work being displayed!

I appreciate the kinds words. That means a lot. I gather from your status on this site you've seen many builds. Any ideas of where I should go from here? Also do you know of a company that makes a coolant resembling mercury? I want my coolant to look like mercury is flowin' through this loop. It would match up nicely.

That would be Liquid mayhem's tharsis red looks amazing but only rated for about 6 months and thats with no dead spots in your system where the pearlescent material can settle.




Thought about it for awhile in my build but the cool effect is just not worth the trouble of changing out your coolant more often.

DAMN!
That's wicked right there. Changing every 6 months is not the business. I'm not looking for that type of "folding" in the fluid. I'm aiming for the way mercury looks in a thermometer - just the color really. If that stuff lasted longer and came in gray...shut up and take my money! Thanks for the input. I didn't know that type of coolant existed. Will def keep it in mind for later builds.

If you know someone who's a chemist (or knows a chemist, or knows someone who knows a chemist ), or maybe a chem lab worker, they might be able to do this for you. As far as I know, it (that Mayhems stuff) is not extremely complex to manufacture (meaning it does not require a million dollar lab to make), you primarily need to know how.
You could possibly even do it yourself, there might be enough info on the internet. Tricky bit might be getting the supplies.

However, since I've never tried it, I might be wrong on that one. But I think it might be worth looking into.

LOL yeah I was going to suggest the Mayhems stuff, but it does have issues. The main thing to consider is a compound to add to the mixture that will not mix with the water, not degrade heat dissipation of the solution, and hold it's own color mixture that will give you the mercury look you desire. Wish I could help out more than that, but that's really as far as my particular knowledge goes on the matter without having done a bit more research first :-/

I'm gonna look for a good "mercury" colored coolant, and read the customer reviews if any. If not that maybe some pitch black coolant will be nice also. There won't be too much visible tubing after completion of both phases. I'm essentially looking for a reservoir color. I might even go for some black colored tubing as well. I would LOVE to find some car radiator hose in the dimensions needed. Weighing options and decisions take longer than the actual fabrication!

Interesting. I could go for a good grey colored coolant.
