Hi guys,

sorry for the lack of updates. The build is finished but I've been plagued with random BSODs, every 10 minutes at best, every re boot at worst.

I'm getting it sorted out with the help of Frank from here and Dave, zigzag from sevenforums.net.

I have pictures though smile.gif Stay tuned thumb.gif

thanks to Frank, my PC is finally up and running. Needless to say thqt I owe him big time smile.gif He even RMAd the CPU for me ....

So here goes the pictures and the problems that we've had in more details.

Like stated above, I have been plagued with BSOD with this build. After trouble shooting for weeks, re installing windows at least 20 times, RMAd the MB (RIVE) just to get another one that was DOA, buying an assassin2 to troubleshoot again just to find out that the CPU was faulty frown.gif

This really was quite an adventure but, through this, I had the chance and honor to meet an amazing person, Frank, who invited me into his home and helped me a lot, no questions asked. And he became a friend that makes me spend way too much cash on new hardware lol (that's right, it's all your fault as far as my wife knows thumb.gif ).

So as promised, some pictures.

448

The rampage IV Extreme with the koolance MB block and the EK HF Supreme installed

448

448

The GTX580 and their ek waterblocks and those shiny back plates lol

448

The motherboard with the graphic cards installed. Man those blocks are heavy

448

The M8 with the first hardware installed. On the left, the aquaero, the 3 powereadjusts, the multiswitch and a FC5 for the fans and pumps. At the bottom the HDDs are installed and on the right you can see the platimax

448

The back of the aquacomputer devices, all cables are MDPC-X sleeved but, OMG what a mess lol

448

And all the PSU cables sleeved biggrin.gif

448

My reservoir and the two swiftech pumps

448

My loop on the MB side

448

The tube getting into the last block (aquaero) with the flow meter. So many cables ....

448

The graphic cards are connected to the PSU smile.gif I couldn't fit all the cables through one hole. I had to use both of them. And as you can see, I planned to sleeve all the cables but I couldn't do it with the cases' cables, darn connector wouldn't get off frown.gif

Here it is, finished and running. It has really been nightmarish to finish this build. I couldn't have done it without the help of Frank (thx again man wink.gif ).

Yeah, it is. I didn't have a 90 degree fitting lying around anymore, but I just ordered a new res and I will fix that part when I redo my loop thumb.gif
