I caved... Quad GTX 580 UD with new AC waterblocks.. New 990X and new 1500W PSU - Page 40

post #391 of 646
Man, took me 1 hour or more to go through all this thread... will you ever finish building that machine?

Nice work on sleeves; the chassis looks horrible, though... thought of possible vibrations?

Same I just finished reading it all but it was definitely worth it. I want to see how it ends!

It's really exciting to see how dedicated phatboy is to his hobby. All the nice pictures he adds for us should be printed in a book titled 'Tech for Dummies: Doing it Right.'

Thought you might like an update on what caused my Post error 88. I had to send the MB away again for diagnosis last week and Gigabyte have come to the party on a refund because they cant get them anymore and with my application a previously repaired board is more likely to fail again.

Ebay to the rescue, I found a near new UD9 which is making its way to me this week in time for when the blocks arrive.

Here's what the technicians from Gigabyte said when they reviewed my build log and diagnosed the Post 88 error. Great guys at Gigabyte!!

"Thanks for sharing your PC, this machine is pieces of art it should runs extremely well in any weather condition and amazingly built.

After studying on your system, noticed that you have 4 individual “aquagrafx GPU cooper water block heatsink” installed on your machine, I suggest you could have these 8x PCIex power cables up raise a bit or any surface could tighten the cables on the top side of case (inside), so that is not putting so much tense/force downwards, in a long run could caused motherboard bent as well as chipset missed-contact/internal PCB damages.

Both of previous UD9 damages were identically and we’ve defined damages were all near Southbridge and BIOS chipset has missed contact from PCB"

So I have to be careful with the weight of the GPUs/cable tension on the MB! wink.gif

Can you do a run of CineBench 11.5 once you're back up and running? I think it's the only good benchmarking app that you've left out so far.

Awesome build btw.

I'm more of a distributed networking type of guy though so I'd have personally spent the money on blades! I get my kicks from queueing up jobs in my render management software and watching a bunch of machines pick up and start spitting out renders, simulations and precomps.

I'll take a stab and say your CB score will be around 13.04 or so @ 5.0 GHz and maybe 13.57 @ 5.2 GHz.

Read the whole thread.

I did lol. My inner math side just poked it's head out tongue.gif

I applaud any large sum of money on a rig. I actually am a part myself, when I built my old water cooled rig. Spent $2,700 on it back in 2008, when in reality it was worth only $1,500 (mid range parts)tongue.gif. But I bought tons of fittings and what not, that I ended up never using and selling for cheap!

Phatboy, your next step is to get rid of those Acer's (funnily enough, I had the 23" version of that monitor last year as an extra) and get some 120hz monitors. I love IPS, but with all that, you should stick with 120hz and.... TN. Can't believe I am saying that lol.

Its more the watercooling gear and the case that cost him a fortune. Shipping on an MM case alone is about $250-$300 on top of the cost of the case itself. So thats basically $1k right there. And sadly due to the smaller population and being spread over a large area, watercooling gear is expensive to get a hold of. I think we only have about 4-5 retailers that sell WC gear here, if that. The rest has to be imported. And living thousands of miles from the next closest country, shipping costs a fortune on imported goods.

So he is spending $20k or very close to that.

For the front 9x 120mm fans

For one the GTX360 are better rads, and two because it probably doesnt have the right spacing anyway.

Just curious about your power supply setup Phatboy.

Whats the standard where you live there in Australia? 240v or 120v circuits? Was skimming over your initial posts and man, that thing is a monster! We would likely have to use two seperate circuits in the house to power something like that here in the states.

Australia is actually 230v circuits. Although they can tolerate 240v, wouldn't recommend it tho
