I'll take some more photo's soon. I have a 360 Radiator out of case I have things attached too right now until I get my 240 and 120 in the mail.

I have never mod'd a case before and I have done a hack job. So I would like some advise if possible on how to do better cut outs on thicker chassis parts.. as you see the motherboard tray is steel. I tried using a plasma cutter, then switched to a grinder. I have a second mother tray I could mod and replace once I figure out a better technique.

Thanks.

under high load its 700+ I believe. I used to have it hooked to my UPS which was 700 and it would beep at me telling me its overloaded.. lol

First off this is a pretty sick machine! But you should move your bottom 690 up a slot, the bottom one is always running at x8, regardless of what's plugged into the board. Just a heads-up!

I decided to move 2nd 690 card up to the 16x slot following seg//fault's advice. I thought I would save myself 5minutes and not drain the liquid out of the sli adapter. Used blue shop paper towels between both 690's and unscrewed it. I ended up leaking more liquid then I thought. It basically drained down between the water block and the 690 and went under the pch heatsink on the gene mobo. I didn't realize.. Turned it back on and nothing happened... Spent 30min thinking I had a loose cable until I realized I had a puddle on my mobo... Aaaah!!!


I pulled it all out... Cleaned the mobo and under the heatsink. No cigar...

Bought a new rampage iv gene today...,

pulled the block of the 690. Had coolant res on it.. Cleaned it using que tips and rubbing alcohol..

Put it all back together and thank god I only lost the mobo ... Dual 690's are working!!!!!!

I'll post some pictures of the coolant res on the mobo and 690..

Also should have my 240 and 120 radiator today.. All pumped to get this in the case..
