my new rig is done!!!11!1!1!!

post #1 of 11

what up guys!?

finally, after a long labor of love, she is done... 95% done... still waiting on my seller to send me my second 6950, and im going to get a noctua NF-F12 PWM fan for the cooler.

Don't cry to me about the way the cooler is, i set it up like that on purpose, for 2 reasons, number one it wouldn't fit the other way... and number 2 i think they perform better oriented like that... all the fans are setup as intake except the top 200mm fan that is exhaust

here are the specs:

Corsair 600T
EVGA X58 SLI
i7 920@ 4.2ghz
crossfire 6950s (unlocked to 6970s)
Thermalright True extreme 120 CPU cooler


here are the pics!


First things first, before i got this case i looked at how other people were setting up this case and i got a lot ideas, and took those ideas and tweaked them... the goal of this build was to make it silent first, then perform well, also i wanted the inside to look like it was freakin empty... so this is how it turned out.

both hard drive cages in the 600T are remvable, and there is a spot just behind the powersupply where you can put one of the cages if you dont want it where they are located from the factory... well i didnt want it there so i found a better place to put it, in the optical bays, had to do a little modding to get it to fit right, just bent a couple tabs, didnt have to cut or drill anything. so i put double sided tap on the bottom of one of the cages and stuck it in the optical cage. turns out i put it in backwards, but i ran with it because this way it would look better, thats why you cant see any wires going up to the hard drives. here are the pics showing what i did with the hard drives:

other than that, everything else went pretty smoothly. so i dont have any other progress shots, other than showing how much thermal compound i used:

here it is, all done!

20120320_200129.jpg



so like i said before, the goal was to make it absolutely silent, and i think i NAILED it. there is only 5 fans in the whole thing, 3 of which are 200mm fans that spin at 800RPM at 12v. the the rear fan is 120mm and the the fan on the cooler is a 120mm PWM fan, at idle its at about 600rpm. all the case fans are plugged into the built in fan controller and when i ramp them down its absolutely silent. couldnt be happier, i can actually hear the HDDs spin up and down.

this is the way i had to put my cooler its the only way mines would fit to lol
