I'll post some more shots this weekend. OS of choice a bit temperamental to overclocking, but it idles at room temperature lol.

Yuck. The silver aluminum drive case looks ugly (with the door open AND closed) here...first on the "to change out" list. Drive temps are terrible with this unit even adding the big cooling fan behind it. Can't decide on cutting ventilation versus just chucking it and getting another drive cage.

What kind of drive case is it? What are you considering going with? I am also planning a Caselabs build, where I will have a large raid-5 array with about 12 drives or so. Trying to think through best options for mounting them as quietly as possible.

I'm not entirely sure who the original manufacturer of that cage is, maybe Chieftec. I wound up getting one of the iStarUSA trayless units and will install it tomorrow, pics to follow soon. They have a decent selection of sizes and styles

Getting along towards done. just need to straighten up and hide as much as the PSU cabling as possible.

More CaseLabs porn.... Motherboard side. I had a moment of weakness and wound up sleeving the cables to the motherboard. The graphite was the closest I could come to the silver/chrome of the cooling system. Understated, kind of like the whole case.

And speaking of understated....Like I said, it's in a home office and I wanted it to be as unobtrusive as possible. LOL, as unobtrusive as a Classified SR-2 system can be. Now I get to wait for the SR-X to come out.

Thanks, it was a lot of fun to put it all together. I had not done a water cooled build in about 11 or 12 years, it's a lot easier now. Just did 12 hours of stress testing (all cores, > 95% load), water is at 30C with room about 25C, CPUs at 36-37 C, peak at 46C with turbo boost overclocked to 4.2. I may need to opt for a bit more powerful fan for the radiators, but it's so quiet I hate to change it. Not sure yet how much farther I'm going to be able to push this pair of Xeons for overclocking.

I think that max temp of 46 degrees isn't bad at all smile.gif. That's pretty much a dream pc you've made there, thanks for making me want the MH10 more frown.gif

Thanks, a screenshot from today. Just completed 24 hours of stress testing, no blips. 4.16 GHz overclock, with Speedstep and Turbo available. Idles 2 degrees C above room temperature, max temps about 63 Celsius on extended stress testing.
