Caselabs SM8 (again) But this time "done".

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
You folks saw this before only with a different config to the loops and two different size res's. And the door han't been completed yet. I am finally finished and I'm not throwing any more money into this until time to upgrade the Mobo, CPU, MEM, and SSD, which might be my Christmas gift to myself.
Hope you enjoy















How 'd I do?

Amazing drool.gif Looks very nice and clean biggrin.gif just one question though, are those rads stacked and how does that perform?

Yes, the rads are stacked by a bracket I made


The cooling is great. 37C avg. @ idol and normal load, Maximum load running @ 4.2GHz temps can ramp as high as 63 to 65 degrees for the CPU. The graphics cards run about 10C lower than the CPU. In my previous build which was a Corsair 650D with the rads in the front and top and one rad on a pedestal underneath the computer I was only able to get a 3.8GHz over clock at about those same temps. So as you can see it runs much better.

I would say you've done very well. applaud.gif
One heck of a customer SM8 you've got, and love that you're still rocking X58.
