You are right really no reason. except for why not... and who has 4 water cooled PC's in one box??

is it really worth wasting the money for an x79 setup as a storage server? i agree it does go alone with the excessive theme, but that would probably be one of the biggest misuses of hardware ever. If you are determined to spend that much more money on it, i would spend it on your main rig

I Saw where EK now has a Waterblock for the Asrock Z77 Extreme 11 so i am thinking of getting this to use for my storage server and selling one of the ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel . This way I can water cool the motherboard!!!

What do you guys think.?????
My advice is go for it! However, there are plenty of alternatives out there. If you haven't already, check out the ASUS blue WS boards and the ROG series; they all seem to be the best options nowadays. If you really can't decide, go with the board that's the most aesthetically pleasing.,

It is the ASRock Z77so it is not a X79.. What I really like about this board is all the connections for hard drives.. 14 total. 2 SATA3, 8 SATA3/SAS2 and 4 SATA2...

I think it would be cool to have 2 board that are water cooled.. If I get this I would sell the 16i LSI Raid card I have. So If I could sell the ASUS P8Z77-M PRO and the LSI LSI00244 (9201-16i) card I have, this should cover the cost of the new mother board with some left over.

More Pictures!!! Need a Opinion??

What do you guys think??

Now for pictures!!!



A dual pump top I am going to put a 400mm reservoir on.



2nd dual pump top I am going to put a 400mm reservoir on.



A EK-DCP-2.2 that I am going to use along with matching reservoir for the TVPC.



Another Picture of the EK-DCP-2.2 that I am going to use along with matching reservoir for the TVPC



A Picture of the EK-DCP-4.0 that I am going to use for my Media/File Server.




A Picture of the EK-DCP-4.0 that I am going to use for my Storage Server.

I am tired of see things in the box and ready to take it out of the box to show you and to use mad.gif

Lol, i see that now. i was thinking X79 after reading SWARs comment about the tons of PCIe lanes. Corrcect me if im wrong, but the board doesnt determine the number of lanes, the chipset/cpu do. One z77 board shouldnt have more lanes than another unless one is cut short, such as a m-itx board. There may be more slots on the asrock board, but the pcie bandwidth will be the same.

That being said, and now noticing its also a Z77 board, I say why not? Water cool the hell out of it.

It has the PLX PEX 8747 Bridge chip so you can get 8x/8x/8x/4x from the board on the PCIe 3.0 Slots.. So it is cheating a little bit. but still should be fine for raid and network cards...

Yes I am going to use one of the WS boards for my media/file server. The P8Z77 WS. I was going to use the Asus board i had listed a Micro-Atx board for the Storage server but now thinking of the Z77 Extreme 11 thinking.gif
