3960X pictures










I forgot that Intel wasn't shipping these things with a stock heatsink and fan. Since I'll want to get it running before my water loop is done, now I need a quick/cheap air cooler to use until my loop is ready. Will be ordering today. Any suggestions? Kind of a pain....but this will also let me record all the temperatures on air....and compare them to the underwater temperatures once loop is done.

Hyper 212 EVO.

Also I'd love some pics of the Intel Inside label.

I should have been thinking of that when I first purchased. I was able to send the aquaero faceplate and the FC8 faceplate in for some crimson powdercoating. Should be here tomorrow.

Not sure. They split the order up into two parts....sent the 2 Asrock boards, and denied the processor. Go figure.

Been a little while since I checked progress on this build, it is looking awesome. Great job and legendary attention to detail there.

One thing I picked up on in the pedestal:

You have all the fans in pull, rather than push pull, on each rad. You need to flip one set on each rad round or it isn't going to work.

How much is the 212 Evo? Thermalright macho HR02 is around the same price here, and a lot better cooler. Not that it matters since you wont be staying air for long...

Thanks! And good eyes on the pictures. But I haven't put them in their final places yet. Only two bolts in each...just to get a feel for wiring positioning. My final airflow will be directly across from one side to another of the pedestal.....Up from the floor of the pedestal....and out the back of the pedestal.

I have no other LGA2011 boxes right now. CPU coolers grow dated pretty quickly as sockets change.

Perusing FCPU right. Liking this one......



Probably overkill for a temporary cooler....but I guess I could sell it on the cheap when I'm done. Colors will work well for me!

You can reuse your 1366 coolers if you have some with a $5 adapter kit like this Prolimatech mounting kit, just purchase the correct kit for your particular cooler.
