Yesbois.That is going to look better than it already does, how is the Ti IYO compared to the 1080?
I thought it would be a marginal increase, but its a whole new level of performance, especially as I play at 4k. Feels like when I went from the 980 to the 1080 all over again.

It's just loud and hot, but I haven't had a air-cooled card in a while so I guess I'm just not used to it. Can't wait to put it under water. Even now I've run out of games to throw at it to push it. Handles all of them easily.

Block and backplate ordered. Love how it makes the card a single slot. The wait begins...

I am liking your build man! And that Ti will look sick once it is in. Just a quick question, where did you buy your pastel white? As i have read quite a few articles where the pastel degrades and clogs up?
As I am myself looking to do a pastel white loop and add a secondary blue loop for my gpu at a later stage.

[MENTION=30305]Killer_Inc[/MENTION] Rebel or woot will be able to sort you out for the EKWB pastel white im sure. As for the clogging of the blocks etc, i think that was with the older aurora / TT pastels. Im running the EKWB pastel white which i believe is made by mayhems. Im running it in 2 loops at the moment, neither of which stays together for very long, but i will feed back if i find any negative results because of it.

So after a long wait, this rig can start to be put back to its full glory. I'll do an unboxing if anyone is keen. This is the new EK design block with the name plate.

OK OK, couldn't stare at the boxes any more

Big orange box #1, the block.



Screws, thermal pads and instructions.



The block itself. Went plexiglass this time, didn't like the look of the acetal design on these cards.







The new bracket to make this card single slot.



Box number #2, the backplate.

It already has dem rgbness everywhere, at the moment its white / nvidia green to match the stock cooler on the TI, but once that is off, anything is possible :D
