Thanks theseopenfields! Couldn't have said it better thumb.gif

I hope. That's the plan anyways rolleyes.gif

Thats alot of space.

Yeah, I think you're right. I was originally doing hours of research to find the perfect raid controller, though after if all, I decided hey, maybe 7.5 tb is more than enough biggrin.gif

Excellent in its own overkill way...biggrin.gif

Your gonna have to oc those hdd's and ram sticks man. Bclk them to hell and back lol biggrin.gif
jk jk, but ram, yeah, I expect no less than 1.75v 24/7.

The powder coat was worth every penny, impressive end result.

Quad-Blocks + QDCs now complete. After a little mishap (i apparently put one of the SLI bridges on with no o-rings whatsoever and only 2 out of 4 screws...), all is fastened and secured.

The projected function for the QDCs is to be able to disconnect and pull out the mobo tray completely. There will be QDCs on the CPU, RAM, Mobo, Aquaero 5s loop aswell. Two little disconnects and I can use the slide out tray as intended.

Another bit I'm going to test out is alternating the threaded QDCs, one male, one female. The theory is I can disconnect the GPUs from the loop and connect the loop back up to keep running. This same alternating method will be done on the other loop as well. Since the GPU loop only has GPUs on it, I can completely disconnect and remove the GPUs, connect the 4 QDCs (2 from CPU loop, 2 from GPU loop) together and essentially make the first loop double the size, double the rads, and double the pumps. This could potentially bring me some much needed extra cooling to benchmark the CPU. Alternatively, I can play around with putting everything on one loop using the same methods if my GPU loop and CPU loop are drastically different in temps, just to equate everything out.

As I type this, the 4 GPU blocks are sitting on the leak testing/ flushing block (the cutting board) in the kitchen. I had something like 10 liters of UV blue reactive deionized water stashed over from my last build, so I threw that in the leak testing res to more easily spot any leaks.

Side note: I had read somewhere that with the XSPC Raystorm GPU blocks, you're unable to use any backplates due to the screw length of the included screws. The included screws were M3 x 5mm, so I picked up some M3 x 8mm and they fit perfect. Waterblock > GPU > Backplace secured. Much more presentable.







I've never done water cooling but just curious, in that setup, won't the water get progressively hotter after going through each 680?

Not really cause the flow is quite fast, so water temp is equalized throughout the loop. thumb.gif

Haha yes! I'm only amateurish at best at overclocking so we'll see where we'll get! I definitely have the headroom for temps though biggrin.gif

Hmm, well assuming it's only a matter of time before it does, all of my important data will be on the RAID5 array and double backed up to externals. Everything else (i.e. apps) will be imaged to the externals.
