[Build Log] (Yet Another) Water cooled Prodigy (Ivy Bridge/GTX 690) - Page 4

It wouldn't be bad if they started making mini-itx-e boards that were a tad bit taller to allow for an extra PCI-E slot tongue.gif Then you would be able to have SLI stubby-670s without length-wise clearance issues. Or you'd be able to have a dedicated sound card devil-smiley-019.gif

nice build!

Agreed smile.gif SLi would be nice, especially 670's biggrin.gif.

This case is really sexy, even considering returning my new switch 810 and make a rig in this one instead:D

the thought also crossed my mind when I was planning to mod my HAF932, those little cases are just so darn attractive! But then I thought about being restricted to a single card (no 690 for me, lol tongue.gif) and the fact that I wouldn't be able to use my dedicated sound card, I scraped the whole idea and stopped thinking about it frown.gif

a ton of manufacturers are bringing tons of mini-itx stuff into the market though biggrin.gif that's always a good thing smile.gif

Let me the first to say that unless you are running near zero ambients (and water temps) your CPU temp-sensors are way off. It is physically impossible to be running those sorts of core-temps, with ambient/water around 25-30 deg C.

Nice build though, pretty similar to what I am doing. Would luv to see your idea for the top smile.gif Keep up the good work!

The temps do seem awfully low all around, even the 690 at 135% power and +130core/+120mem was only hitting around the mid-40s during heaven and a few hours of BF3/Arma2 gameplay. Hard part is finding a program that can read Asus mobos' core temp sensor properly tongue.gif

Anyways, a much-needed rain storm swept through my area yesterday afternoon and took the power with it! Back on now so I'll be getting my hands dirty tonight with working out the solution for the top of the case. My Raspberry Pi also came on Friday, and I'm about halfway done programming it as a PWM fan controller and LED controller (Bitfenix fans come with seperate leads for the LEDs, really nice touch!). Right now the plan is to use one of the internal USB 2.0 headers on the motherboard to power and control the Pi. Might see if I can somehow wire the Pi into the motherboard's WiFi card, since I'm using ethernet right now. We'll see!

Heya Mate, yep, that seems good for the GPU(s), pretty much inline with what one can expect from a Kepler under water - so that is a very good result.

I am sure your mobo-temo sensors will be off by a fair margin, with even a default Vcore, at 4.8Ghz, you will be looking at mid-60's, and with a +0.2Vcore, probably around 68-73 deg C fully loaded.

Still very acceptable for IB, so no worries there!

Enjoy, I am envious of your 690!

I put the motherboard back on the tray, only to find that the backplate on the 370 is thicker than the mobo standoffs in the case, and therefore does not fit. I will most likely cut a hole through the motherboard tray to give the backplate the proper clearance. Depending on how the PSU wiring works out, I may end up also cutting the front plate off of the PSU compartment to allow more room for the cabling. I've got some extra white window molding sitting around as well to tidy up the cut.
i also have a prodigy that came a few days ago along with the asus and an i7 3770k. I saw another build where the guy also cut out the tray for relief on the backplate mounting. what is the best and easiest way to cut this tray hole? I would like to keep the hole ilooking good and clean and not have to do a ton of filing to clean it up. i have the black case.

G'day Mate, probably mine you saw. I generally use a dremel, or a jigsaw, and a very steady hand. Minimal cleaning up needed afterwards, but always best to use a nice fine metal-file.

As long as you stay 0.25 - 0.5 mm from the marks, you will be ok, and not left with much to do. Soz for off-topic, OP.
