Let us know when we can start making payments for the block 
 
Is it possible to use different colored screws to go with the red theme of my build, to give it that little nice touch?

I don't have the capability to nickle plate anything, and I only have black oxide, or stainless steel screws.  
 
I will likely be in touch with folks about the first batch in the next day or so, but feel free to send some PM's if your interested.

Will the final versions have paint on the inside of the waterblock in the channel also? Will this have any effect on thermal conduction?

On an atomic scale, yes. for this application, no.  the lowermost section is where the heat transfer happens, and that doesn't have any of the coating on it.  
 
Boddaker, I got your PM, but i can't reply.

Re:EVGA X79 DARK WATERBLOCK 2013/09/08 17:59:07 (permalink)
Bloody fantastic work Nate!
One small thing I think might just polish it off is if you give the Delrin top a
small 45 deg bevel around the top edges just to get rid of that 'sharp' look.
 
*Sent PM about payment.
Also request for mine, if possible, that bevel would be great (I can do it if not).
Plain copper (I will nickle plate) and Stainless steel screws and I will engrave
the top when I get it. Looks like there is plenty of room for the engraving thanks
to you for using small head Allen screws and counter sinking them, WD.

beveled tops aren't a problem, I just have to special order a certain endmill to make it happen.  
 
I am just happy i was able to make the goal i set to get it done this week.

Yes indeed, fantastic job. I think a beveled edge would look nicer but that is just me.
If it is going to set back production and cost you more for the tool, it really isn't needed.
 
*PayPal deposit just sent
 
BTW, what size Collet are you using for your tools? You should purchase a Tool grinder and make your own.
For the Engraving machines I use, we just use split shafts and sharpen them to whatever angle we need.
