post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Decided I should finally post up my build to show the beast near its completion. Unfortunately I lost quite a few of my unboxing/build log photos so I can't really do a build log, but I can show you the progress as it stands now. I still want to get all the cables sleeved and reorganized as well as get some nice lighting but funds are tight at the moment being a paying college student, so there probably won't be any updates in the near future.

-When I was originally using some larger SLI fittings...


-My previous setup with distilled...different fans...and other small things


-The goods going into the new loop after a bad experience with dyes...


-The damage the previous PC Ice dye did...Luckily I was able to remove almost all of the damage.


-The new beastly fans going in....with some smaller SLI fittings. I have to thank Gary from Sidewindercomputers for being able to help me get these beautys, and in general he is just a great guy to do business with. They are loud as hell but they push an absurd amount of air.


-Most recent tubing re-route, trying to make the shortest, cleanest looking setup, while adding some beautiful Ice Dragon Coolant. So far I've been more than satisfied with it and plan on ordering more in the future.


-I originally was going to use some Mayhem's dye in combination with this...but I mean it looks so good I couldn't resist just keeping it white.




-I know I need to do some serious cable management...unfortunately with the size of this case and the stock length PSU cables there's only so much I can do. So until I fork out the money for the great guys at FTW PC I'm stuck with it like this.


-Happy belated Halloween by the way... =D


-The woes of a college student




-Sorry for the relative crappy quality...all were just taken with my phone as I don't have any great camera, I'll try to snap some better pictures in the future when I finally install some of the 3M carbon fiber vinyl on some areas in the case, including the SLI cables. Also any input would be great, I'm always looking for suggestions and hopefully I'll be able to put some more work into it soon to make it complete, and thanks again OCN members for advice making this build possible!

Wow, that rig is awesome. How you can afford that on a student's budget is beyond me, but congrats.

Really lucked out on being able to get such amazing hardware. Last year I was able to get an incredible internship that also paid me handsomely for my time. I definitely should have saved all the money but I couldn't resist the urge to use some of it for this build. I also bought the gpu's for an amazing price from an OCN member, I originally had only planned on getting two cards because of my budget. I also was only planning on getting one dell monitor and hopefully in the future getting surround, yet again I found an amazing deal locally for three basically for the price of one. So I shouldn't have been able to build this monster rig, but I had an amazing string of luck!

Thanks! I'll try to post some bench's later today, I haven't done a whole lot with overclocking yet, but I plan on it. Right now I'm sitting at 4.8 ghz with a vcore of 1.36 that's been sufficient for now. But I'll have to see how far I can push it soon .

I should have bought some of that dragon cooling before it was 30 bucks a pop

Nice looking build though.
