Dream "Extreme" Build Log

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Well, here I am with my second ever thread, ready to explain the blood, sweat, and lack of money I am about to have because I am ready to build my dream machine!!

First, I want to thank everyone who has post pictures and descriptions of the builds they have done; it has saved me countless hours of research!

Second, here is what you are waiting for....

I started planning a week ago, spending many days and nights reading what people wrote and have built, so I have decided on...

I have already purchased the following items...as of two days ago..

Intel Core i7 990X Extreme 3.46 Ghz
EVGA X58 Classified III
Cooler Master HAF X
Corsair Professional CMPSU-1200AX
Corsair Dominator GT 12 GB (3 x 4GB) 2000MHz (PC3 16000) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM

I already own:

3 X Asus 24' LCD with Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital Edition
Logitech Z-5000 5.1 Surround Sound
Logitech G500 Mouse and Logitech G19 keyboard
2 X EVGA GeoForce GTX 560 Ti "Superclocked" in SLI and 1 EVGA Geforce 8800 Ultra as dedicated PhYsx

Still need to purchase:

All of the water cooling equipment, which I am still trying to research.
I figured if I got the case first, I could do measurements to make sure I could fit the things I am ready to purchase.

Hard drives/DVD Drives

..and aesthetics such as LEDs, wire sleeves, colored tubing, fan bezels, etc. (I have a theme worked out in my head, I want to keep it to myself until I get to that point in the build log...hopefully it will keep everyone in suspense and coming back to my thread for more!!

The plan:

Build this thing to last me a long time, while OC'ing everything, and keeping it at a cool temperature..

I hope the description was enough to keep you coming back...I WILL keep this thing updated as I get parts and start to build and mod the case!

Until then..here is a pic of my monitors on the desk waiting for some attention..

I didn't know ANYTHING about liquid cooling until about a week ago! I have been on forums night and day figuring out how to build one, and I think I have an answer..but, it'll have to wait until I start posting pics!!
