[Build-log] Danger Den Double Wide water build. Now with quad sli! - Page 16

post #151 of 245
Hey did you order your case with the SR2 Extension or no? Because I noticed you have the ability to install 5 internal drives bracket. I ordered it with the SR2 extension and Debbi from DangerDen told me it only makes the case deeper but doesn't change anything else. I asked her if it changes the configuration or anything and she said "No". So after a week of false promises of when the case would ship it finally shipped Friday and arrived Saturday cause I only live an hour and a half from them. Then I start gathering my build and notice there is only a bracket to install 3 internal drives and I have 4. So which one did you order?

I bought mine prewoned from a member here. It does have five 3.5" bays though mine is standard ATX. Since the SR2 is HP-ATX and XL-ATX you loose some bays to make room for the additional three slots for XL-ATX. One of the reasons I love my Asrock mb is that its standard atx and I can run 4-way sli and I have plenty of space to route cables (especially the 24-pin mb cable). With the MIVE P67 and the EVGA FTW P67 I had to be super careful and plugs things in before screwing the mb as they are E-ATX. And with the SR1 radiator with push/pull fans it made it even more challenging to fit one in. I was thinking of switching to XSPC EX series radiators but that means ordering all new screws.

Good luck with your build. This is an awesome case far a ton of water equipment.

No offense but are those 3dmark11 runs with 4 way on or 3 way? J/W

Really love the 4 480's, heat up the room a lot?

I got two 480s and my room heats up like crazy. Can't imagine how it is with 4 480s and that cooling set up, lol. I've *****ed about it before tongue.gif

The cpu is was at 4.3 which is still a bit of a bottle neck tbh. I'm very much new to lg2011 so I'll have to find what is my cpu's max stable clock. So far I have found my 24/7 of 4655. If you check out Vantage, It matches the same gpu score as three gtx 580 3gbs @ 950 core each (max I could get them) with all four at stock clocks. I've been spending the day exploring my cpu's capabilities and trying to sort out the ram speed too. So far so good so I'm sure with a nice oc to 800 and my cpu @ 4.7 I can match or possibly beat my old 3d11 score of 17.2k (i7 2600k @ 4.9 and the three 580s aforementioned). At stock clocks, the 480 is equivalent to the 570 (Nvidia's intended successor).

They're still not a problem tbh. As long as you have the proper cooling, you can tame the 480s. Last run of 750 core each, they hovered in the high 50s with my fans running at their lowest possible setting. I'm sure I can keep them in the low 50s by cranking all fans to max.







Small update: I picked up a Lamptron FC2 on ebay from Gary (from sidewindercomputers.com) for $25. Its brand new and sealed, though its silver. But looking at the FC2 pics, I can probably squirt some nice satin black on it. The Scythe is overheating more than I'm comfortable with. I checked the heatsinks with my laser thermometer and it was registering 60°c on the heatsinks. Without the pci-slot cooler blowing on them, the acrylic gets hot! Not warm, hot! I guess I've been just stressing it too much as I've used all the channels for a while. Its a bit a weak per channel at 12w but I generally have a couple of fans at most hooked to each one. Since the FC2 doesn't have a ton of knobs, I'm going to chain a few fans together. I shouldn't have any issues since each channel provides a healthy 45w. I am worried about premature failure though as it was common complaint about them.

Other then that, I had a bid on a Silverstone 1.5kw unit on fleabay but the bidding sky rocketed last minute and I couldn't justify spending close to $300 on a used, unknown usage, no warranty, and no return psu. I'm sure Silverstone will start phasing this out out sometime soon to make way to a gold unit and I'm hoping they'll be discounted deep then. For now, the Booster is nice a touch. I like the "X" on the front since you can push it and it changes the led color to it (though the blue is kinda weak). I've ordered a couple of cheap pcie extensions from jab-tech.com to help route the cables to the back as I'm not liking the Booster's cables reaching out through the front.

Getting close biggrin.gif and there's still plenty of room for the cpu and the gpus:

edit: for chuckles, here are the old runs from my "old" setup:

3d11 old score has been surpassed but I have yet to match my old Vantage gpu score. Gonna get my cpu up to 4.7 (I'm gunning for 4.9-5.0 if possible) to see if I can relinquish more power from the gpu(s).

Hey Wermad, good job on Overclocking the 3820, its a nice 24/7 OC.

With that monster setup, I hope you will get a 1440p display monitor biggrin.gif

Its really stable at 4655 but its hard to get it stable at 4.7+. I gotta learned a bit more about advance settings to get this one hopefully to 4.9. 5.0 is looking like a less bit unattainable without going to the extreme. It does come very close to the 2600k @ 4.9 and I'm guessing due to the extra two threads. I'll look into a 3930k down the road when prices fall a bit for a preowned one.

I'm planning on getting three ips monitors for Surround in the future. My wallet is still strapped so I would prefer to run Surround than a single high res monitor. I had surround before with tn monitors but in portrait mode it was horrible. I'm looking at three Asus 21" ips monitors. I really don't want another huge multi monitor setup again.

Have you checked for the Crossover 27Q Led-P, the Achieva Shimian and the Yamakasi Catleap? There is also the PCBank that is suppose to have one of the best quality with very low input lag ?

I bought 3 x Crossover 27Q Led-P last week and I'm suppose to receive them today.

PS: My wallet hates me !
