I'm not a fan of the bios since they look a bit on a childish side. Asus Bios look much better, but both do what i needed them to do which was overclock. I actually enjoy my MSI boards. I don't use them for anything else but folding so IDK about the other components on the boards themselves but they seem to be doing very well for me.

Subbed because I'm subbed to every thread that I post in. smile.gif So no special feelings.
Also, the Asus UEFI is sexy.

Yea considering I basically watched you do the whole process anyhow... LOL tongue.gif

4.9GHz on the H50 or the H70? IDK if they will hold up for very long at that clock, but what kind of temps are you getting? My 2600k was on a comparable air cooler to the H50 and it was ok at 4.8, but 4.9 and 5.0 were scorching!

I am thinking a little forward here. With this many builds cooped up in cases all tidy and neat, wouldn't a nice water setup be more practical and effective now? Those Corsairs worked great for your builds laying everywhere, but now everything is centralized. You could put a 240 or 360 in between each or try a 1020 or 2. With all the water part deals in the marketplace, you are sure to do this for pretty cheap while also selling your Corsairs while people are still buying them.

At any rate, this looks like a ton of fun! Also, a lot of hard work for the cause! I picked this team because you were on it, honestly. Don't let that get your ego up too high lachen.gif

Thanks for the suggestion. That might be worth looking in to some more. I'm not a huge water cooling person but I'll have to see about doing that. I have a 320 rad and all the tubing. I'll see if I can make a bracket for the rack for it to mount to. Thx a ton for the tip.

The H50 in a push pull configuration keeps my temps around 67c underload at 4.6ghz. My H70 keeps my temps at around 63c under load. I'm expecting to have to down clock a little bit but for the most part, I think they are going to hold up. I think with the cool airflow that I have inside the case is enough to keep things at a pretty good level as far as heat is concerned.

as far as joining the team, I'm flattered. And yeah, my ego is going to go up from that, but its the great ppl on these forums that make me want to do it.... and kick their butts:-)

and who ever follows what those signs say?! If ppl followed what they said, then Monkeys would be poor, Alligators would go hungry, and I wouldn't have an Ego.

Those are good temps for those chips. If I were you, I would just use a 240 for each 2600k and you should be at 60C or lower over 4.8GHz. I have seen 240 and 360 RAD's keep them at or under 60C even at 5.0 or greater with luck.

Here is the hardest part though. If you stick those GPU's in there with them, you will have an itch that you may or may not want to scratch, and that is putting a waterblock on those.

But, baby steps, although you just took a giant leap with this renovation!!!

yeah the cost addition would be pretty prohibitive. As far as gpu cooling, I don't use the gpus in these systems so no need to cool them but if i did a dedicated water loop for these systems, I think it would have to come after i finish buying the key parts: KVM switch, 2 more folding rigs at least, and a monitor mounting system and keyboard tray.

like you said, baby steps...

Also... update with more pictures
