I have external chilled water, 2 power supplies and 40 drives in a STH with some SSDs and optical drives---again, good luck figuring this out-steve

I'd rather not go external as I prefer things to be kept "indoors" and while I understand you're recommendation , I"m dead set on a double wide, as they definitely pack more space than the STH10 can.
I'd love to see how jampacked your case is with all those drives. Do you water cool if so how much space were you left over with for rad space? I'm looking for a real nice clean look. I think this is something that after heavy packing and modding only a double wide can provide.

Here's an example. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Credits to Seanimus here http://www.overclock.net/t/1295989/build-log-caselabs-sth10-aquacomputer-evga-seanimus448/0_30

While that has an amazing clean look, it lacks the space for multiple rads that I'm looking to imbue it with to maintain super low RPM's for fans hence 4x 480's, while I could still pack those into the STH10 I'd be out of room to use the top and bottom respectively for anything else other than pumps/lighting and the PSU would be forced to go in the center. With the Double Wides I can still accomplish this + have room to put in 2 PSU's (IF the TH10) RAD's would be out of the way and still plenty of space to pop in a few drive cages, optical drives, fan controllers etc. While still doing great cable management and having a cleanliness to it.

I've got my vision and it goes well with both the MH10 and TH10 , the only issue I'm debating with on either is with the MH10, would it be more beneficial having it slightly smaller and adding a pedestal for aesthetics, or would the TH10 be the wiser choice, as many do end up going smaller down the line, we have no idea what the future holds. I can go either way. With the STH10 I'd be stuck and pressed for a pedestal to go further at which it'd be super tall and tacky looking at that point ( having a case nearly my height sad-smiley-002.gif

Can't really fit any rads in the middle compartment, so the only other place left is the front, and it seems like you could fit a 360 there. So 2 480s and 3 360s it seems like w/o any mods. With the TH10 you can fit 2 480s on the bottom, 2 480s on the top, and 1 480 in the front left. So 5 480s without any mods. The double wide cases seem to have more room natively, and technically have potential for more because you have two sides of the case to expand upon. This said, it all really depends on how you envision your build and what case you think would work best for your needs.

What's funny is I asked my friend to take a look and explained my situation and they somehow went off track and fell in love w/ the STH10, so now they're looking to put in an order lachen.gif
But yeah I honestly believe the double wides are double wides to really envelop the enthusiast in many to extend the capabilities and still keep it sanitary and clean.
Once I get past this I'll be good, just need to hear the right advice and I'm golden. I was looking @ STH10 build logs for a while but as I watched them grow, I kept seeing RAD areas that would dissapear due to the limited space.

Don't get me wrong I think the STH10 is a sexy case all by itself as its a 900D w/ a VIP floor biggrin.gif and ofc higher quality parts to boot + support. I just want to showcase my main area like the pic above but inclde a nice going theme, but have room to keep the cooling/noise levels down to the bare minimum.

Time to get on the 290x train boys. /derail sort of.

I feel bad right now the more I read the 290x thread w/ all the black screen issues and heating issues going on. I really hope that gets sorted out w/ the latest drives and voltage tuner support. My heart goes out to you guys!

I will be running two Sapphire 280x Toxic's in crossfire with my BE. With that many PCIe lanes everyone needs to utilize them. So go Crossfire or SLI.

How's the stuttering w/ the latest drivers? I heard the latest drivers (most recent) fixed a few issues.

Also looking for 16/32 Gigs of ram suggestions.


Again, any help would be appreciated.

Brian

The noctua is a good one if you're going air, just be wary of RAM w/ high heatssinks. G.Skill Trident X's are great for those as you can remove the heatsinks off them. If the Noctua's to much there's the HyperX 212 Evo as well.

post #2162 of 3689
I had every intention of getting 2 reference 290x's and then if decided for a 3rd and 4th i'd go non-reference. But i've had a ton of expenses with my build lately and it would be stupid of me to grab 2 just so i can hold em in my hand. And by the time Newegg sends me my BE, the non-references will be right around the corner. I forgot if they said end of November or December.... Plus if i get a cpl Matrix's it'll be nice to have the VGA Hotwire working with the OC Panel.

OMG ROFL, just as I finished my last post jumped on ebay and saw a SC edition of a Titan in the 6xx's 59 seconds remaining, debated for 10 seconds, logged in, 9 seconds remaining, put a bid and won
yeeeeee wheee.gif

According to seller and description its still sealed and unopened. 100% rating w/ 300+ stars so I think I should be ok.

If you're interested I can keep the thread updated with them.

I'm new here, following this thread a couple week now, just wanted to contribute that my supplier just confirmed that they expect to have the board in on the 19th of November. I'm from Amsterdam.
post #2167 of 3689
Please no. That's just gonna give me hard decisions to make. I'm indecisive enough as it is. If i start seeing cheap Titan's it's gonna make me start questioning my build again redface.gif

Gratz man! Nice steal. What I'm really debating now is picking up double 290x or double titans on ebay for such a steal. I'd like to wait for non reference 290x's but the waterblock wait always sucks hard.

And as for the 290x waterblocks I swear I saw some posted on the 290x thread, or are there others you're waiting for from a diff namebrand?
