[Work Log] 2600k - Tri-Fire 6970 - Radiator Madness - 120.7 All internal. - Page 3

post #21 of 55
Thread Starter 
Decided to go with the MCR 320 + GTX360 + Coolgate 120. Also just got some more parts in:

Aquacomputer Aero 5.
450

Home made mount for 2x Power Adjuster 2.
450

450

A couple of Coolance QDC's. With these on im able to take out the motherboard tray without draining the loop. I've also put in a Aquacomputer Flow meter.
450

3x 6970's now in Parallel.
700

Loop all done and testing or leaks, so far looking good.
700

I'll be ordering some more sleeving so i can get all the cables all nice and tidy. May do all the gpu's + 24 Pin one by one, but its a bloddy hassle (just among these there are a total of 66 cables.

Yea i know, i feel kind of bad backing out on something as small as sleeving though. After putting this much money and time into it. What size sleeving is good for 24 pin / 6 and 8 Pin?

What res you gaming at mate? Often think about getting a third 6950 for tri fire just weren't sure if 1080p was worth it. Not to sure about my mobo and dealing with 3 cards either. The bottom slot covers my onboard audio not sure if i can whack a PCI express sound card in and run tri fire all at the same time.

Looks ok though dude, maybe consider a more water friendly case to house all that goodness in.

ATM its 1920x1080 so Tri fire 6970's is abit overkill. But planning on getting 3 monitors later this year. So then it will be 5760*1080.

Water friendly case? phh. I've been thinking about a CL but dont have the money for it now and i really dont feel like getting a bigger case. The ATCS 840 is pretty underrated when it comes to WC. if you look at the way i have mine the only thing i have done is dremel out a 2x4" piece of the bottom to make room for the bottom of the rad, other then that the case is 100% stock.

You have about 110mm in the top. So a 60mm radiator + Push Pull is no problem. You can also fit another 360mm radiator inside. You have a total of 130mm space between the back of a 6970 . So even a full size 60mm rad + Push Pull with 25mm fans will work with no problem.

This is a never ending project. Finally when things are "almost" done i spot a thread and new parts start popping into my head.

Just got another 2 24" monitors and a mount for them, so now i'm using 3x24" for a total of 5760x1080.. I've been playing some on it, but im sitting ~1m from the screens and due to the way the mount is i cant adjust the side monitors at a very high angle so i have to turn my head far to the side. Working good on car games, simulators or something like that, but BF3 is a no go.

The rig is almost done now this is how things look now:

_DSC6035.jpg

_DSC6036.jpg

_DSC6039.jpg

_DSC6040.jpg

And the backside:

_DSC6041.jpg

_DSC6042.jpg

Things that are on the list:

- Sleeve most of the fan cables on the backside and clean it up on the backside.
- Order a couple of 2-pin extensions so that the temp sensors can be routed on the backside.
- Maybe adding 2-4 New Aquacomputer sensors just for fun tongue.gif

I've also bought a second HW-Labs GTX360 so i will be swapping out the MCP320 with it. I've also been thinking about swapping the Coolgate 120mm on the back with a HW-Labs GTX120 so that everything is HW-Labs GTX rads, the only problem here is the temp sensors that are in the 120 radiator in the back, they need to be relocated.

I've also bought another 3 2600k's so i'll be binning them. I know it's not worth it, specially because i'll be moving to IB in April, but these things sell like nothing here so i'll be down 10-20$ per chip (given that they are ~280$)

I would have thought that BF3 would be perfect for 3 way surround as the left and right monitor is basically your peripheral vision, I have not tried BF3 but on Crysis 2, that's the feel that I get.. It's pretty awesome...

Now if you was trying to play a RPG like Dragon Age Origin, then it gets a bit annoying as you are focused on the center screen but your hotbar is on the absolute lower left corner of your left screen...

I love your tube routing by the way.. thumb.gif

Thanks. The thing is that because im sitting this close to the monitors, and the angle of the side once are not that great the left half of the left monitor and the right half of the right monitor is out of my peripheral vision, so i have to turn to the left or right to see there. If a enemy pops up there i wont spot him. Its great when im doing coding and stuff. Having the code im working on in the middle, a couple of old codes, tutorials and so on on one monitor and having the 3rd for something else.

Thanks, pretty happy about the way the tubes are.

Looking good bro! I would say, if you just paint the internal of the case this would truly be a epic build!

Anyways, where did you buy all the WC stuff from? We poor Norwegians don't have to many places to buy stuff from!

Hurra for Norge thumb.gifrolleyes.gif

I have been thinking about painting the internal, but ATM i have to little time, working fulltime on my batchor degree and work on the side.

Most of the parts are bought here and there.

The top GTX 360 rad is bought from Denmark (Coolerkit.dk), the second one (witch i got today) is 2'nd hand from Canada, GPU blocks are all new from Frozen i think, something from Aquatuning, a lot from Techbay. Will be draining the loop on sunday and swapping the Swiftech 360 for another GTX 360.
