What are you planning on doing with this? I am in complete awe. I would love to do something so extravagant. How many chips? How many video cards? Any estimated benchmarks? Or is this just for fun? smile.gif either way I'm subbed and very interested!!!

Wooooo . . . . . . Hooooooo

Back from the welding shop:



I took a vacation day so I could take this naughty girl to my tig guy, and I gotta say that for the time we worked and the perfect results we got, it's been about the best $100 I've spent so far.

I was really surprised, as that's about a third to half of what I expected based on the time we spent and the usual shop rate.

Anyway, I'll wait untill the weekend to dress the welds and clean things up a bit, but I just had to assemble the chassis and put in the rads to get an idea what I might want to do before I disassemble it to dress the welds and get some paint on the bare spots. I'll mark where the top chassis panel needs to be drilled for the plastic top to fit, and I need to relieve the top plastics for one of the top fans while I'm at it.

I was planning to put some aluminum angle along the rads to add some stiffening, but it's not going to be necessary, this sucker is rock solid and it's only got a few screws barely snug.

The boxed shape that NZXT uses along the edges of the top and bottom panels is incredibly strong, even lengthed out like this one is.

Everything just fits like a glove.

There's only 4 fans on the underside of the top rad, as there's not enough clearance above the motherboard, even for thin fans, but with 10 out of 12 fans, I doubt I'll be seriously conpromised.

I also have a thin, 20mm fan available for the rear most fan on the lower rad, in case I have a clearance issue with the 4th GPU.


Thought I'd share my excitement:

SUBBED!

Woah Darlene, that looks amazing

That case with the rads and fans installed looks awesome!

I love the reservoir as well. The lighting in that is amazing. How noisy is it with the water splashing around in it?

This is going to be one build for the books. Only thing is ... do you have a desk DEEP enough to hold it? biggrin.gif

Thanks guys,

Actually, the res is pretty quiet, all things considered, and quieter yet with the flow slacked off some. That's a bit over 2.5 gpm in the pics.

The water follows the curvature of the tube, so it's not so much like a waterfall.

I doubt I'll hear it over that many fans, even with them turned down.


For a build like this, I just might have to add a room, lol.
