[build] EKGA STH-10 : A 900D Rebuild - Page 2

post #11 of 611
Thread Starter 
Well, I learned on the Swiftech forums that the Maelstrom will not properly fit inside the 900D without modding due to the fat face plate... While I have no problem with modding, this seems a bit extreme... So, i'm thinking about going to a tube for my mcp35x2, or maybe just sticking with my EK-CSQ.

After a short back & forth with Swiftech I have gotten my hand's on a revised face plate. thumb.gif



the problem. now solved.

Went ahead and locked this in @ PPC after they did a slight price bump on EK rad's, being the only big rad's in stock.



picking up friday.

I decided to exclude the second bottom rad until I have a better understanding of the space consumed by the dual PSU setup. (won't be using the second cut out, already know that) I've also decided to recycle my 240 MonSta & mod it into the front 240 slot. biggrin.gif

Things are coming together, I should have 99% of the parts by Friday. (1% being cpu & mobo)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The rep from Swiftech made me show him proof of purchase before he would even talk to me about the face plate revision... Does that mean it's NDA? ohh did I just break NDA?

I'm still debating if i'm going to sleeve... I most likely will, just not single braid's. I'll most likely re-do the stock ones to make them less rigid & cleaner looking.

I didn't get any lighting yet, because the jury is still out on the motherboard.

Great news... update: It just so happens while browsing the swiftech forums I found a post from an overclocker.com member (gtxjackbauer) saying that the Maelstrom Dual Pump Res did not properly fit inside the 900D due to the width of the faceplate. The thread had been mostly dead, so i decided to revive it. Got a response from a Swiftech mod that I could email him directly for info on how to recieve a modified faceplate. All I had to do was give them proof of purchased, and an adress.

So, short story even shorter. Info given, and a revised faceplate has been shipped out, no cost to my self, & should be here at the end of the week.

+1 Swiftech!

Watercooling & case parts have been ordered. Everything will be here by Friday...

I also ordered a 100$ Digital camera so I could actually get some good pic's of the build this time around!

I'm leaning pretty heavily towards it. Even if it only supports 8x8x8x. More then enough power to push 5760x1080@60hz via 3 titans.

The reason I don't go for the Dark is because my mechanical keyboard uses PS2 for anti ghosting. And EVGA left the ps2 out. :-( otherwise I'd go for that board since its on sale now and has a solid price tag of 399usd. ;-)

I'm running the i7-4930K in an Asus RIVE motherboard. Works like a charm. You have to use a flash drive to update the BIOS first.

OK folks! A few new toy's showed up in the mail today...

A.) Free, (hopefully) revised faceplate for the Maelstrom Dual bay dual pump res (from Swiftech) (ty swiftech for the amazing service!)

tomorrow I will have the actual res, until then I can only hope it's skinnier.... Hard to tell from the photo, but its 100% metal + powder coat. Much higher quality then I expected it to be.




B.) Ergotech WideScreenGaming Forum Edition XL 27inch+ Monitor stand...

This thing is a monster... fully extended it's the length of my california queen mattress.







My only complaint so far, is that I THOUGHT this thing had some sort of through desk mounting system... It does not how ever... Instead it has a 20lb 12 inch wide pure steal base...

One more complaint... The vesa mount's slide on, so they are slightly flimsy, but I don't think it will be an issue... They sent me a bad of nut's & bolts, but I have no idea where they go yet... I hope they turn out to be stabilizers to lock the mounts in place.

biggrin.gif & this time tomorrow i should be home from PPC's with the mother load.
Each of the VESA mounting bracket's has an adjustable crank to raise/lower the monitor for perfect alignment.
