I have now received every part for my build except for the case itself. I have also finished sleeving the four 6 pin pcie cables and the 8 pin EPS cables on the PSU.. all that remains is the 24 pin, I just have not had time. I had to swap out my Sapphire 7870 cards for some MSI ones because the Sapphires were not reference design..
I went ahead and built the rig on the desk to test out everything before throwing water blocks on, and because I was tired of waiting on the 900D! I also have 2 cats who are in the room with me so I had to make provisions..
All of the parts, finally!
Put together on my desk, running just the SSD currently. The sleeved 24 pin here is an extension I made before any parts arrived. The temporary air cooler is a CM Hyper 212 Evo.
The current setup. Currently installing SC2, and I just bought Heart of The Swarm today as well. And my new Sennheiser HD280 Pros hanging on the monitor, can't wait to hear them more!
The 'temporary' 900D. It was the easiest/best solution for the cats being in the room.
Edit: I also picked up 2 more 3tb drives, Toshiba this time. I plan to run a Raid 5 setup with all four 3tb drives.
I am already tired of the fans running, I cannot wait to get the case and get the loop installed. I also got a few games in preparation since I have been out of the gaming scene for a while, including Civilization V, HoTS, and CoD Black Ops 2. Needless to say this case needs to HURRY UP!
