Asus did it with their thunderbolt on the r3eBE - most cases don't support more than 7 slots so tri-sli + one expansion slot meant you had to choose a nice sound card or a nic upgrade like the bigfoot killer. The thunderbolt combined the killer with the a sound card.

Looks like they were somewhat inspired by the R3E black edition, but that's ok because that was an awesome if expensive board smile.gif How's the overclocking on this board - everyone seems to say the only good one was the R4E - it'd be nice to have options as I haven't bought the X79 board yet.

the big bang 2 is also a prity good clocker and has better connectivity imo smile.gif... it should also look prity cool once u get those heat sink off (and prity sick with copper blocks witch is what i plan to use smile.gif)

1/24/12 Update

This weekend I took the opportunity to really spend a few hours getting at least one of the two main rigs up and running. With Jim revising the mounts on the Mo.Ra 3 I couldn't work much on the Media Rig...So I focused the majority of my time on the Gaming machine. The biggest pain was/is the wiring. The TX10 has a "mid chamber" between the two main chambers that house the dual motherboards that provides a lot of room for wiring- Kudos to Jim and the gang at Case Labs for thinking of this. There is a lot of wiring between these two machines and the components though, so needless to say that ate the majority of my time up.

Here is the Gaming Rig powered on for the first time. I ran out of sleeved extensions for the top HD7970 as seen in the picture...That is on order. You can see some of the wiring to the right that goes in between the two rigs (the cover plate that hides it all is off right now):

IMG_0082.png

Another great innovation from Case Labs is this mount that can be placed into a chamber or the pedestal that can house up to 24 HDD/SSD's! I decided to move all of my storage drives into the lower chamber and utilize this mount. Two AP-14's provide cooling:

IMG_0060.png

Here again is a picture of the mess of wiring. I am no expert with cable organization, but thankfully this will be hidden from view. I will also be getting some sleeved sata cables as well:

IMG_0080.png

This is the hardest part of the build so far. The stock PSU wires are not long enough to reach the mainboards, however with the extensions they have quite a bit of excess length. I tried to group them together so they would be out of the way when the MO.RA 3 goes into the same chamber:

IMG_0078.png

The Danger Den bay res and 655 combo mounted. The empty space will be filled shortly:

IMG_0064.png

The storage devices and fan controller are all located in the lower chamber now. The bottom bay contains 4 hotswappable Hyper X SSD's used in RAID 0 for the Media Rig:

IMG_0063.png

I used these stock H80/100 Corsair fans on my M8 for chassis cooling and they worked great. So I decided to mount this in a position to provide additional cooling for the tri-fire 7970's until they go under water:

IMG_0061.png

I'm impressed with the Extreme9 so far:

Just some additional shots:

More to come!

That thing is insane! Man, that tower would just blow my mind.

I have absolutely nothing to say, this is beyond mind-blowing.

Please allow me and my poor rig to cry silently in the shower while running water at freezing temperatures. skull.gif

I don't understand you have case big enough to house 4 computers or 2 computers that have a loop for each CPU/GPU and could house 20 internal radiators. BUT you are running a hydro series cooler? rolleyes.gif

case is massive and from the looks just a ton of wasted space.

Cant wait to see it with full water cooling thumb.gif

Actually you'd be surprised at how quickly space gets eaten up. The upper chamber is going to be completely full once the MO.RA 3 gets mounted, as it will have 18 fans in push/pull next to the two PSU's all in that one area. The bottom chamber (beneath the motherboard trays) contains all the storage devices and smaller bay devices (fan controller, optical drive, etc.) so it will also be too full to house radiators. The pedestal will house the server, so nothing can go in there either. So in essence, that leaves just the area next to the motherboard trays for radiators/reservoirs/etc. smile.gif

I definitely will be putting the Gaming Rig under a full water loop, however at this time I am using the H80 as a temporary solution until I can procure the GPU waterblocks for the 7970's, and also get the Media Rig's loop up and running. It will help me plan accordingly once one of the machines is complete. thumb.gif
