Appreciate the reply man thanks, will get a piece ordered and will hack at it :-D

The xb shouldn't have a problem feeeding 3 gpu's with air. They sit directly behind, depending on what you're running. Either a 120mm or 140mm fan which can more than cope with supplying enough air to the screamy gpu fans. My only concern is the case isn't the most rigidly built case and 3 290x's at full chat will cause some unwanted vibrations as well as a lot of noise, but some sick benchmark scores.

Nice shots Mavisky and Phillyboy

I'd put up som pics of the new Frozenq res but either my phone or the forum ain't playing ball. Probably my phone, it's a bit antisocial and doesn't like talking to other hardware. I think it wants ti be a blackberry lol.

Can I join the club, thanks smile.gif

Nice UV set up mavisky!

Philly, all those large components make the XB look small haha. Very nice though.

Just finished my side fan project. Some slightly crooked lines and offset holes but for the most part I like it! While everything was apart I made some room for future water cooling components on the other side.

This is the only hardware mod I've done since I've gotten my case, and it's a small one at that biggrin.gif


And how does dust find it's way into all these small areas mad.gif
But you can see how I decided to route the cables a bit easier.

My rig is also for audio production! I am a freelance live sound and on location recording engineer. Glad to see other engineers who are also computer enthusiasts.

Nice looking rig yourself...I like the UV cables. Shoe horning custom water cooling components into that will be an interesting project. We're you thinking an AIO set up?

All those big components translate into a 4770 OC'd to 4.2 (so far) that idles at 28-29C and never gets above 60C fully loaded. That's with ambient temps around 19-20C.

Mavisky, your UV set up is pretty sick!

Well, I am glad I wasn't the only one playing with their XBs over the weekend. Great job to all who shared pics, very nice updates, they all look amazing. thumb.gif (PS Jugurnot, that side case fan mod is awesome. I may steal it in the near future tongue.gif)

Soooo already part of the group and all, did some updating. Got income tax monies in and spent it wisely, on UPGRADES!!! YAY wheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gif Mind you, I'm on a budget, so no R9 290x's or triple SLI titans for this poor white boy, but still upgrades is upgrades. My old parts were a 6 yr old CM 500 watt power supply, updated to a EVGA Supernova 750w Full-Modular one, and Traded in my old diehard GTS250 for twin GTX660s SC. Made a WORLD of difference in gaming. Most everything is maxed on my games, if not, its much higher than low and off tongue.gif

On to pics! Excuse my poor quality shots, I do what I can with a camera phone. Dispite my following of Kpoeticg's TRiClOPS build and his talk of camera shots, I have no camera in which to practice technique on. So bear with me.

Before, old shot from pages way way back.


First shot with the GTX 660s in to test run and make sure they worked. Had to rig up one of those molex connectors with an extension to power both lol. Only 1 rail with 6 pin rolleyes.gif


Horrid closeup with no focus... because Camera Phone! mad.gif


Lastly, the top shot. BTW I don't think I mentioned this. I sleeved the whole thing. Fingers are so sore, but so worth it in the end. Used paracord because I like the look better and wanted it to be flexible, used the plastic type stuff and never really cared for it. Anywho...


Very please with the end result. Now just need to order the fans I want, get a SSD to replace my old mechanical, and some parts for a custom loop conversion to make it pretty. If it didn't take me so long to do things, I would make a build thread, but being a poor white boy, it takes me forever to do anything. Been planning to do a window mod for months. tongue.gif

Thanks,

So far it's doing a decent job of cooling too.

Running an FX-8350 at 4.7ghz that idles in the high teen's to low 20's and a GTX670 overclocked to 1202 mhz (up from it's 915 base since it's a reference card). The UV clamps really helped set this layout off. The previous setup when I still had my H80 on the cpu and clear tubing looked neat, but I like the blue/green contrast of the newer setup more and the large 5/8" od tubing from Primochill makes it looks super heavy duty. The 1/4" od tubing on the old H80 looked pretty pathetic. Here's a shot of the old setup at night.
