Looks great, can't believe this isn't getting more comments!

You're working fast, and it's all good quality.

Keep it up!

Thanks for appreciating the works I had done so far,

I had sold off both my MSI GTX680s and gotten two pieces of GTX 780Ti, Gigabyte and Zotac. Gotten two different brands as the store had only one each.

Updates

Since I will be upgrading my rig and be building a new built. I decided to part with my trusty MSI GTX680 SLI.

I been struggling to resist to head back to the red camp but the prices of 290X is really irresistible.

Last night while surfing the forums and found out that 290X now facing black screen issues. The same issues which caused me to head back to green camp every time ( 6970 xfire > 580 SLI, 7970 xfire > 680 SLI)

Today went to read up more and seems more and more people are affected. So I ditched the idea of getting a pair of 290Xs. So whats the next option, Titan and 780Ti. Titan, too ex and older tech so its out of the list. Decided to purchase two 780TIs.

Since the shop I purchased from have no stock for two identical brands, so I gotten both similar priced 780TIs which are Zotac and Gigabyte.

Zotac and Gigabyte 780TIs

Glad that I retain in the Green camp and never jump ship. Next will be targetting Aqua Computer's 780TIs nickel acrylic glass blocks and backplates.

Thanks.

They are indeed monstas. Running crysis 3 at maxed out setting is very smooth compared to my 680 SLI.

Hi, you have done an impressive work so far, you have a very high quality build.

If you are from Singapore, like i understood from someones post earlier, that's good. I have a very high opinion about Singaporeans. You guys beat me endlessly on Football Manager Live when it was on. I never stood a chance, you guys always signed only the very best players and played only at your best every time.

Your build looks very well and has the very best quality hardware on it, wow, the case has 4 slots for PSU's, and the 780Ti have a lot of potential.



(as a side note): I see you have the 360mm flex bay radiator mount. I am looking to get one if i get a CL case, but i have a question, Is this mount recomended only or mostly if you put a radiator there in front, cause i'm thinking of putting 2 hard-drive cages there, on it ? And i like it because it's a whole piece of 3 120mm slots, instead of getting 3xventilated 120mm bays and adding the hdd cages behind them.

Hi, thanks for the compliments.

For my build I actually bought 2 X HDD cage (meant for TX10) which comes with a 120mm fan cage as well. Both from CL. As I do not wish to waste the space and just mount 5inch devices and HDD cage so I decide to add a radiator there.

The HDD cages which I bought are meant to be screwed and secure to the top chamber fan holes (2 sets of HDD cages can be secured at top chamber (3 X120mm) fan holes. Do consider this method unless you have plans to mount radiator at the top.

For my build I split the casing into 3 different layers.

1st Layer (Bottom Chamber) - 2 X monsta rads + Drain loop
2nd Layer (Mid Chamber) - 2 - 3 X D5 pumps + mobo + 360 radiator
3rd Layer (Top Chamber) - Purely for thermal controls and PSU (2 X Aquaero 5, 5 X Power Adjusts 2, PSU, Flow Sensor, Fill port, 3 X 120mm Fans)

As for now, I only have 1 X HDD, 3 X SSD. I wont be using the HDD cages. I will be mounting the SSD directly onto the rear of mobo panel and stealth mount the HDD.

I might be going for the 3rd 780Ti to do triple 780TI SLI, so I might need 3 pumps in total.
Hope the above will help you with your build.

We would have very different layouts, you have a lot of space to choose from, i'm going on somwhat the same ideea, in the way that i want to clear as much space as possible, so that the look accents the mb/cpu area, i don't want too much getting in the way. I am looking at the SM8 case, with no pedestals or anything at least right now.

I was thinking of placing a 480mm in the top and a 240mm in the bottom, in front of the PSU, and that will be almost maximum radiator capacity. The maximum would be a 480mm in the top, and a 360mm in front, on the flex-bay radiator mount, but that would be a little impending on space. I have to place the pump somewhere, and i don't know if i can fit the hdd-cages anywhere.

I don't have many hdd's right now either, just 2 big ones, 3.5 inch. But i don't know in the future what i will add, and i don't know for sure if i will use only 2SSD + 2HDD so that i can place them in the bac of the case, in that hdd area. And i'm not very satisfied with the fact that the hdd's will be hanging on the side like that. I'm ordering the 2 hddcages, mostly as a precaution, and thinking about the future. And because of the fact that if i order them later after the case, i might pay a lot for shipping them separately, i live far away from the US, and i want to have an almost complete case from the start. I think i won't be using them at all at first, so that there is much space in the case. but i don't know what i will need in the future, i might end up not using them after all, but that wouldn't be such a big deal, i'm left with 2 cages surplus.

The HDD-cages can be added to the back of the 360mm flex-bay radiator mount with screws, while also using the 3 120mm fans in the bay to cool the hard drives ?


Good choice on getting the 780Ti's instead of the 290x's i think it's the better choice.

Also, one thing i didn't get about this build, didn't look very closely. You will be leaving your first build intact, or will you be using parts from your first build, in this build ?

Looking forward to photos with the initial hardware in the case.

Nice build very impressive! thumb.gif
I don't know how you shop at Sim Lim as every time I walk in there the shopkeepers are trying to rip me off. Any advice on reputable stores there? I travel through Singapore time to time. :-)

Cheers
