The paste looked in decent shape and the coverage was pretty good. Not sure what they are using though.

So you're saying you can't find any waterblocks for a GTX 680? whistle.gif
As stated previously, FrozenCPU does carry several 180mm fans. Apologies if they don't have the 18 led's per fan that you consider important. rolleyes.gif

Well the truth is that I don't have the tools I need to do it. Buying the tools and parts to create my own cabling is not cost effective when I can just buy the adapter instead.
I live in a small apt. and I have lots of tools for almost anything. I have 4 tool boxes at work that I've left there for the last 5 years. Plumbing tools, Electrical tools, Mechanics tools, Painting tools, Micrometers, vernier calipers, dial indicators, drill bit sets, polishing tools, grinding tools, a large assortment of measuring tools accurate to .000005" The only thing I don't have are electronics tools for fine wiring and soldering of components. I don't have a test meter. I've done pretty much everything under the sun except electronics. I had a very good soldering iron but my kids broke the ceramic tip off of it and I've never replaced it. I've got torches, I've done TIG, MIG, Stick, welding. Tool steel welding, Machining of all sorts on all types of equipment. The last 5 years at work was as a Mechanical Design Engineer. A large part of my tools I gave to my children because they have houses and can use my table saw, jigsaw, power brad nailer gun and all the larger tools that I don't have the room for. I have rebuilt engines, re-plumbed my entire house, upgraded the electrical panel to breakers instead of fuses. Rewired the kitchen outlets and added extras. I'm getting too old to play with small wires that I can't even see without my glasses. Fine wire soldering is too difficult because I don't have three hands or the room for a proper soldering station. I would need to buy clamping tools to hold things in place while I solder them together. Right now I am taking 2 courses on running an eBusiness. I am running an Amazon Affiliate website and launching a Visa / Mastercard affiliate business. I am looking at a third company as well to join forces with for access to their extensive wholesale inventory. My love is in the design of computers where mixing and matching of parts comes down to a fine art. I've built 9 systems since June last year. Very happy people with smoking systems for minimal money. I on the other hand want to push the barriers with my own system. I have broken records with mostly air cooled systems and ready made water blocks such as Corsair. There is a financial limit to my madness and complete watercooling systems is an area I have not delved into. Mostly because I'm lazy and the cost / benefit is not there for me. I overclock to test the limits but tone it down for normal use. This is my first all out build where I bought the best of everything. The case I bought for the size mainly but I'm going to put all the bling on it as well. I want it to stand out as a show piece. I am generally quite conservative and don't normally buy led fans at all. The function is more important to me than the looks. This one will have both. It's like my car. It has all the toys plus some. It has the guts I want when I need it. It has all the extras for tight cornering and has traction control as well. Exhaust system is all stainless. It was the best model they sold and has specific badging so that if you see it you know it is the top model they sell. It has a model name that only comes with the complete package and the colour is non negotiable because to have that colour sets you apart from the others. No other car in their entire inventory can get that colour because it is reserved for this model alone. I don't work anymore in a "job" but i'm starting my own business instead. I've had enough of killing myself for someone else to profit from while they just give me a pat on the back. Meanwhile they are banking millions based on my designs.

When i get the board back, i might start with 2 way sli so there is a gap wide enough for the SB heatsink/fan to do it's stuff properly, and i'll see if it gets anywhere near the 65+ temps it was getting when 3 vid cards covered over it.

This time though, the cpu is staying at stock clock (good enough anyway).

Also, the onboard core3d sounds **** compared to the TitaniumHD, so im gonna keep the titaniumHD installed and just switch back and forth to sli mode, unless i get 3 samsung 27" 2560x1440 monitors and do surround with auxillary display (1080p TV).

I have just received my second power supply and it won't fit in by 1". I am replacing my H100i with an H90 and adding higher pressure fans than the stock ones. I have been looking at the BGEARS| B-BLASTER 140 which has 3.5 mmH2O and 103 CFM which is almost double/triple the stock fan's pressure. When I look at the comparison charts, the H90 on 1 stock fan does better that the H80i dual fan and very close to the H100i using push/pull. Using the B-Blaster for push will triple the pressure of the stock fan so should even surpass the H100i while being quieter and giving me the room I need for the Power supply. The EVGA GTX680 Classified video cards will not fit reference 680 waterblocks. EVGA has also stopped the production of their 680 classified waterblocks and do not intend to supply any more of them. It probably stems from the argument they had with NVidea about overvolting and selling factory O/C'd cards that are faster than NVidea's own lineup.
I do have a slight problem with the fourth video card on the X79 E11 M/B because the usb/ audio/ front panel connectors stand too tall and won't let the videos card seat correctly. I'm going to have to modify the connectors by shortening them as much as possible so the video card doesn't ride on top of them. I need to find a way to shorten them without damaging them at the same time. They need to be around 1/2 the height that they are right now or at least 1/3 less. Any ideas on how to do this? Should I buy a connector tool kit to remove the wires from the connectors and then modify the height? Do they sell shorter mini connectors? Any help or insight would be appreciated.

2 Titans would be more beneficial to that mobo, keeping the SB fan area clear.
But 2 Titans = $$$$

Bios 2.8 is now out! "Improve PCIE compatibility." I wonder it means?

I do wish their descriptions would be a little more through. Thanks for the update. Your first rep is incoming. thumb.gif

Hi cpachris,

Awesome blocks! Have ordered the MIPS motherboard block but no stock at the moment. Anyway, have a few question if you don't mind answering:

1) Will there be any issue if all 4 GPU cards are installed (7970s or 680s or Titans length cards)?
2) Which fitting will you be using on the MIPS MCH4454? Spacing seems to be seriously narrow especially when sandwich between two GPU cards.
3) MIPS recommend to use protective pad MCH0352, can't seems to find that in their website.

Thanks!

Hey eagleyes.

I just received my mips block for this board as well.

If you take a look, it's only the nickel version of the block that's out of stock. The copper version of the block is available!

Aquatuning has them in stock. That's where I got mine. It took 3 days to get it from Germany! Also the german version of the MIPS website has the copper version in stock.

1) Will there be any issue if all 4 GPU cards are installed (7970s or 680s or Titans length cards)?

I'm using tri-fire with 7970's and I dont see any spacing problems for a quad gpu set up.

2) Which fitting will you be using on the MIPS MCH4454? Spacing seems to be seriously narrow especially when sandwich between two GPU cards.

This is a little tough. I had to use a barb for the inlet because there's no way a compression fitting would fit between 2 gpus. I used a 90 degree angled fitting with an extension for the outlet.

3) MIPS recommend to use protective pad MCH0352, can't seems to find that in their website.

I used thermal pads from the stock cooler for the waterblock. I suggest just order a small sheet of thermal pad from somewhere else, because the pads from the stock cooler are fragile.

Hey,..

I can just say the MIPS block is the best you can get for this board.

This will be a sneek pic of the most insane water cooling x79 xtreme you will have ever seen,... More to come in some time. Sorry i could not resist in posting the pic. Click the link and enjoy ..... and after do not forget to close your mouth again smile.gif

Enjoy!!!!
