The Mullet [.Triple SLI GTX 780 & CaseLabs Magnum MH10.]

post #1 of 130

Business in the front <-> Party in the back



Subdued and silent Hackintosh work machine with three color-balanced displays during the day and triple-SLI Windows gaming beast at night.


Build History:

This build log will document the re-build of a stupidly overbuilt Fractal Design R4 Haswell into an LGA 2011 Watercooled CaseLabs MH10. The original Fractal R4 started out fine with two GPUs. Here is the Fractal R4 air-cooled build with two GTX 780 DC IIs, a Haswell 4771 and 32GB of RAM:



It was good, but not great. It struggled getting past medium range settings in AC4 and Arkham Origins at 5760 x 1200. So I switched it to a Z79 with 64GB of RAM and a 6-core 3930k; at the same time forgetting how heat and airflow work while adding a third GPU. During the day it runs as a Hackintosh for development work and it still does that well, but when playing games at night, the sandwiched cards are a disaster.

I've got it now where it is playable, even overclocked, and the GPUs stay under 80c. It gets 60fps on Assassin's Creed 4 on Ultra at 5760 x 1200. It also sounds like a jet taking off... so here I am, after reading hours and hours of OCN, switching to watercooling. I was going to try and force it into the R4 but I couldn't manage enough radiator space when planning.

Here it is as I'm starting the re-build:



I love the look of the understated white Fractal R4 and I think the white CaseLabs MH10 (with no windows) looks similarly professional. Inside, the new MH10 will be black, teal, and copper. I'll be re-using all of the parts that I can from this current setup: CPU, MB, RAM, SSDs, PSU and the GPUs.


I'm so old:

My first computer was a Radio Shack TRS1, and my first PC was a PC-XT. The first computer that was mine was a C64 and the first PC I built was an Intel 386. I was around when the first video cards went to SLI (Voodoo and Voodoo2!) but after 23 years of being on a PC I switched to OS X for the Macbook Pros and Airs. I still love my Air but I couldn't tolerate trying to get it to run three screens. After looking at the Retina Pros and the newly announced Mac Pros, I decided I'd get back into building PCs.


Main Components:

Water Loop:
Misc. Accessories and Fittings, all 3/8" x 5/8":
Case & Bay Additions:
Color theme:



Current status:
  • Existing gear is on the test bench and the MH10 is being assembled
  • All parts have arrived
  • GPU blocks and backplates are on
  • CPU & RAM blocks are on
  • Case surgery is underway for cables and QDCs

Thanks guys! As this is my first loop, I'll need all the advice and help I can get. All CaseLabs fans and watercooling experts are invited to sub and comment and criticize.

I just ordered the EK backplates for the 780s from FrozenCPU. I also ordered the main GPU blocks from them a few days ago and I'm glad I did as they are out of stock everywhere.

Nice component selection. That is a HUGE amount of ram.
Almost mirroring my own selection, although I opted to wait till the enthusiast hardware refresh that is slated 3rd/4th quarter next year.

Definitely going to chime in once in a while.

Going for tube is a wise choice. Considering it's a first build.
No need to follow the current craze of using acrylic tubes.


Just a head's up here. You may want to recheck your GPU block - GPU terminal compatibility.
I think the GPU terminal is made for an older block.

I'd say you need 4 pcs of Sli coupler
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10959/ex-tub-689/Bitspower_G14_D-Plug_Male_Male_Coupler_Set_-_Matte_Black_BP-MBWP-C07.html?tl=g30c101s873&id=AZ5RQJ6C&mv_pc=2051

Oh,... and a couple stopper plugs to cover 2 of the holes of the GPU waterblock.

Edit: Nevermind. I just checked the compatibility drawing. Didn't realize the connection block can be removed.
Interesting design. For triple GPU water-cooling, surely the way to go.



If you haven't found it already, I'd suggest checking singularity computers youtube.
In my opinion, one of the best documentation of water cooling builds on the net. thumb.gif


FYI.
I'm way behind on my watercooling knowledge. My computer water cooling system have been churning fine for more than 2 years and I have just started reading up on new components/techniques for a new build next year. So please cross-check any info I mention as they might be out of date or outright incorrect tongue.gif

Another note is that english is not my main language, so please excuse my spelling / grammar mistakes.

Another note:

I presume you have the male side of the Koolance QDC (High Flow) No-Spill Shutoff ?
It doesn't come in sets. You need to buy the male & female side separately.


If you're planning to use it for drainage when you want to flush the whole system, I'd recommend using a valve instead.

Bitspower BP-MVV-BK Mini-Valve - Black Sparkle
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_393_623&products_id=32808

This is from my own experience with using QDC as drain port.
It takes considerable strength to plug/unplug. (don't take my word on this though... I'm pathetically weak)

Imagine having a leak when you're filling your loop and you want to drain all the fluid off your loop ASAP.
Basically, with a QDC, it takes a few more seconds than a valve to start the drainage process.


QDCs are perfect for disconnecting everything on the motherboard tray off the system.
Although I still would not recommend it. I just think they're way too big, ... ruins the system's aesthetics.

Thank you for the very detailed reply! Your English is excellent.

If I did what I thought would look best, I'd be bending copper pipe... better learn to walk first, though.

I think it will look very clean but I didn't have much choice, I'm not sure if anyone else sells blocks to fit the Asus non-ref cards I already own. -Here is an example image I found with Google- and here is the installation manual if anyone is curious.

You're right, I did get two parts. But I had no idea what I was buying smile.gif I know I need some way to drain and flush the system but I'm not sure what I'll need or what that part of the loop will look like.

Thanks! I've had this exact item in my cart 3 times already but I've always removed it as likely being excessive. I will certainly add it back when I put together my first order of missing pieces.

If you or anyone has any links to good examples or photos of using a valve and QDC in the drainage part of the loop, I'd love to see them.

Praise the Lawd, another MH10 build. I don't see enough of these cases or the M10 around. I think they're the best looking of all their double wide Magnum series smile.gif

Thank you!

I agree with you about the M10 series... such a great shape and it still fits under my desk. I'm still not sure why there are so many M8 builds and not MH10s other than the M8 has been around a lot longer.

The ability to easily get 480 rads in seems huge.

I'm sort of regretting not going with the AC copper 480s but they're soooo expensive (and don't offer a black shell option).
