Finally done all the mounting holes in the 3d drawing -- this time… - Alex Belits
Finally done all the mounting holes in the 3d drawing -- this time with no problems, everything matches.

Also I have confirmed my suspicion that flat springs that held my coolers on the CPUs (and that were made only as a temporary replacement for the real thing yet survived for a year) weaken over time, and this causes some outrageously poor performance in re-testing the setup a day after it is assembled. I will order the "production" version of them tomorrow.

How much more work is there to be done before the Trogdor is 100% complete? From the sound of your other posts, I gathered that most of the important things have been finished and you're just tweaking minor things so I'm just curious.

And, btw, what is up with your new icon? You look so stern and serious. I think I liked your other icon better = P. What have you done with the other, happy-looking Alex!

Everything important is done, I am have to complete all drawings that will be used by the metal shop (previous versions were built and used as testing prototypes without any problems), and prepare tools/rigs to bend/hold copper pipes that are used in the cooling systems. Meanwhile I am trying to squeeze as much performance from the cooling systems as possible by doing trivial tweaking.

As for my icon, I will make another photo when I'll look happier.
