I know it may be difficult to vote for an unfinished build....but if you have enjoyed my build log thus far, or it has inspired you or given you some ideas for your own build....I humbly ask for your consideration. You can vote simply by posting the name of the build you want to vote for in this thread. Follow that link and post the name of the build you are voting for.

I know it has taken me a long time to get this far, but I've been taking my time to enjoy it along the way. Summary of components:

- 50+ fans
- 7 radiators
- 4 pumps
- 100+ Bitspower white fitting pieces
- 16 Vertex 4 SSD's
- 3960x
- quad SLI with 2x GTX 690's
- 64GB of memory
- Areca raid card
- 2x Aquaero 5's
- 2x PSU's
- Asrock Extreme11
- water blocks on everything

Just takes 30 seconds to vote.....do it now. smile.gif

I watched you from page 1 to here mate and I loved every bit of what you have going there, sure you get my vote thumb.gif

What I've said several times is that if you have anything in slot #7, it covers up the USB connections, the power/reset connection and the front panel audio connections. So slot #7 is not available for me to use, unless I have a 1/2 length card that won't cover up these connections I need.

Slot #1 is always 16x. Slots #3, #5 and #7 are 16x.....as long as there is nothing in the slot directly above them. So...if you have something in slot 6, then both slot 6 and slot 7 drop down to 8x lanes.

I never insinuated you were insinuating anything. I was just responding to linkdiablo's question:

The point I was trying to convey to him is that you wouldn't have any issues putting your cards in any of the odd numbered PCIe slots any way you wanted. And that's what you were doing anyway.

Now as for your water cooling setup. I liked the latest rendition of the top part. I think you should keep that in the final layout. I'm thinking of doing something similar for my own. (Though I'm not water cooling my memory, which simplifies my loop structure somewhat.) As for the bottom half of it, that look's like the best setup with the MIPS chipset block. For my computer, I'm still waiting on the doo to finish his chipset block. The only alteration I'd have to your setup once you get doo's chipset block is that since his O-ring ports are above the level of the PCIe slot 1, I'd do something like this for that part of the loop:


That shouldn't require too much reworking of your existing plumbing if you decide to switch to it. And you wouldn't have to use those T-junctions. That's the only part of the current loop setup I don't like. I'm definitely not a fan of those. But I don't see another way you could work it with where the MIPS chipset block's inlet/outlet ports are located. Unless you could use PCIe slots 3 & 5 for the GPU's with a shorter SLI bridge. But that would mean putting the RAID card in slot 1 to keep slot 7 free which you already said didn't look as good.

Anyway, those are my thoughts on that. As for what your rig weighs in after it's complete and filled with water coolant, I'd estimate that it'll be at least 100 lbs. :-)

+1 on loving the new layout. I kinda like the GPU setup too, unique and funky but still keeping some crystal link in there!

Funny that you originally thought you'd complete this over the summer. Much like I expected to be done within a year but instead I'm nowhere close lol!

The beauty of a Case Labs rig is you can have a never ending project. Get tired of it? Change it all up again.
post #2976 of 3982
loving this build excellent job, incredible attention to detail, but imo i'm not over keen on the white and red fittings in the board area, draws your eyes to the fittings more than the exquisite board, blocks etc. Can you not get black and copper fittings??? just to try, or all black(boring i know!!) or all copper fittings. obviously this is just my opinion and +REP fella, superb thumb.gif

i want more pics! hahaha, great job!

There is so much with this build (OU, Intel, nVidia) that I could hate on, but it's so well done I just can't find it in me. Congrats on the contest win.

PS: EMAW.
