Managed to get only a little done today. To my great relief, the board fit PERFECTLY in the case. There were holes for the MB standoffs in the right places. This was the biggest worry I had, since I know very little about MB sizes above standard ATX.









The only other problem I had was the length of the cables for the PSU. ATX power and both CPU power cables are too short on the Seasonic to route them how I want to on this case. As you can see in the pics, all the power ports are at the top of the motherboard, and the PSU is bottom mounted. I'm gonna have to get some extensions. Lian-Li courteously provided one CPU power extensions but since it has two, I think I have a sleeved NZXT one I used to run on my Onyx. Unfortunately, I have not seen any NZXT extensions on NewEgg. I'll have to check other places or Fry's to see if they still make them. If anyone has any suggestions about this, please let me know.

Unfortunately, other projects had to take priority today so that's why I couldn't get too far. I will continue to build it when we come back from Christmas break on the 26th. Stay tuned!

Yeah, it seems they have some, but I was looking for the NZXT ones specifically because they comes pre-sleeved. I found them at my local Fry's. Thanks though.

So I FINALLY got a chance to get back to work on it. I've been so busy at work and all kinds of pressing matters these past couple of weeks that I've had to put a delay on it.

Well, I got it all built up and plugged in.




I got the NZXT Extensions I needed. I found them at Fry's.









IT IS ALIVEZ!!!



When my boss saw it finished, he was like, "Holy crap!"
I left is updating Windows over the weekend. I'll be continuing on it Monday morning when I get back into work.

I was surprised to hear that those Dynatrons are actually very quiet. I thought, them being server-grade air-coolers, that they would be much louder. The case, with it's incredible amount of fans, doesn't let out as much noise as I would have expected. I think my Onyx makes more noise than this thing, but then again, I do have a loud Scythe in it along with my 660Ti.

Data protection is very important to the client so, I'm planning on running the two WD Blacks in RAID 1 and he has an extra external 1TB which I will be mirrored to the array on a certain schedule. I have the Crucial M4 SSD running only Windows and his other programs, and moved all the user profiles, files and App Data to the Blacks. If anyone is interested in doing this same procedure to save your SSD of excess data that can be stored on a spinner, take a look at this excellent guide: How to Create User Accounts on another Partition or Disk During Windows 7 Installation. It can be done on a fresh install and there is also a way to do this on a machine already loaded with Windows. See post 22 on that thread to find out how. The guide was so good that I saved that PDF document and the XML file needed to my Windows 7 install USB. I have done this on my Onyx and my Big Noodle at work with Windows already installed and my co-worker has done it to his workstation too as a fresh install.

So yeah, I got it working without any major issues. The BIOS on these types of motherboards are quite finicky. One issue that did show up was during Windows install, it could not detect any of the HDDs or the SSD on the window where you choose on which drive you want to install the OS. The BIOS did detect them though. At first I thought I may have connected them to the wrong ports, but I connected everything to Intel ports. After some searching, I found out that updating the BIOS firmware solved this issue. Overall though, the build was easy. The case was an incredible pleasure to work with. It has an incredible amount of features. All RAM sticks worked perfectly so there were no DOAs and will not be slowed down by any RMAs.

Once I'm done with the installs and updates and such, I'll be giving it it's warmup run with some benchmarks. Now, since this machine is not meant for any kind of gaming, do you guys have any benchmarks for it that you recommend?

If I have the time, I may also run 24hours of F@H. Let's see if I get that chance.

It is now that I regret not proposing 2 or 3 Quadro 4000s, just for shiggles. lachen.gif Or even a K5000 which just came out after I bought this card! mad.gif Or maybe even a TESLA! If they didn't go for it then cool, but if they had... ermahgerd!! drool.gif

Well, I'm officially calling this thing DONE! It's now ready for delivery to it's new home. Sadly, I didn't have a chance to run benchies on it, not enough time, but I did get to do a 24 hour run of F@H. Didn't get how much I made, but I did it just to make sure everything was stable, me never having dealt with 2 CPUs and all, I didn't want to give them something that might crash. I didn't have anything else that would stress out all 24 cores either. biggrin.gif

Thanks to all who watched and helped with their suggestions. This was a very interesting build for me. thumb.gif
