Thanks mate. Would be pretty awesome if they did. Although I must say I'm already
glad that they're making a fan with a frame composed of two parts. That's what
makes this possible in the first place.

If I painted the impeller in copper it wouldn't really come across as copper anymore
as soon as the fan starts spinning (it would just get blurred with the background,
which would be black). And if I painted the entire frame in copper I think it would
be too much.

I'm pretty happy with it like this. Black with copper accents, just how I like it.

This is just a prototype. The fan is very annoying to take apart and before I do this
with all the rest of them I need to make sure the process doesn't damage the bearing
or anything like that. So: testing.

But, in the meantime, I thought I'd present you with this:

Nicely done alpenwasser ,
I like the way you did the fan , some copper color but not too much.
Great job.

Edit: By the way , it's great to hear that your on the mend. Pace yourself for a little while , don't over do it.

Thanks, that's exactly what I was going for, using copper as a contrast element and not as
the primary colour.

MIPS SR-2 Block: Painted Screws


Originally, the MIPS block looked like this:


(click image for full res)

While I really like the block, the standard steel screws have always been bugging
me. They did make a Nickel Edition, for which those screws are of course much better
suited, but to me this just never really looked 100% right. I considered going with
black screws, but then I thought I might as well add some contrast in there while
I'm at it and painted the screws in copper today (same paint I'm using for the
fans).

I have to say, I really like the result. Also, apologies about how dirty the large block
looks in this picture, the lighting hit it just at the right angle to bring it out perfectly.

It has lots of fine marks and scratches on it because the Acetal is so soft, so I will
be polishing this a bit before putting it in. But I wanted to show you the current state
of affairs anyway.

As long as you don't mind this guy:



As a side note: No I don't usually feed him from my pan, but occasionally he's allowed
to pre-clean it for me before it goes into the dishwasher
And no, he doesn't take anything from the table (ever) and he does not suffer from
digestive problems from human food (mixed breed, just don't give him anything too
spicy and he's fine), so don't anyone start getting panic attacks about this.

Hehe, I still have an old Lian Li PC-343B. Although IIRC you're rather tall, so that
might be a little tight...

WOW , the detail in this rig is going to be eye popping.
Great job again , the blocks look so much better with copper painted screws.
I'm not sure why they didn't put copper screws in them from the factory.
