CERBERUS: 3-WAY SLI

post #1 of 90
Thread Starter 
706010_0.jpg

Hi everyone!

I want to show you the work-log of my new rig. It's name - CERBERUS: 3-WAY SLI, because it has:
* 3 heads (3x 27" Full-HD displays),
* 3 hearts (3x Laing D5 pumps),
* 3 blood-circulation systems (3x watercooling loops)
...And of course it has 3-WAY SLI GeForce GTX580 (EVGA)

Also, it has a 5 watercooling radiators (2 of them are exclusive TFC Monsta Extreme 420/360 Limited Edition) with a lot of fans in "push-pull" configuration, and a lot of more interesting moments...

The project is 99% complete now, but I want to start from beginning, from the start of my build.

I'll write my work-log step by step with a lot of photos and short comments between...

So, "it has begun" (c) MK wink.gif

PART 1: How it was...

Before the start of work-log, I want to show you, how it was in the past... my previous build, "NightVision: CLASSIFIED". Many hardware components from it, but not all...

gallery_251_27_363489.jpg
gallery_251_27_289279.jpg
gallery_251_27_575421.jpg

I'll stay on LGA1366, EVGA E760 CLASSIFIED, EVGA GTX 580 (but now - 3-WAY SLI), Laing D5 (but now - 3x D5), and many other differences (new case, new radiator, new fans, modding and custom created parts).

With a previous build like that I'm sure you new build will be epic!
So two D5s in the 452X2, but where is the other pump going to go and what res will it use?
