[Build Log] Jet Black (Tyan Quad Socket, Aircraft-Grade Paint, Chrome Tubing all Watercooled!)

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 


I'd like to present my newest build log, Jet Black. This log is culmination of a semester of thinking and debating, much thinking that has turned into a very large build. I'll skip all of the gibberish and get right to the point:

What is the point of this build you may ask? Four processors, 16 sticks of RAM all watercooled? My answer: why not? Gradually I'm gaming less and less and using the true power of my sig rig less; I simply don't want unused power (and depreciating money) sitting in my rig. While I may be jumping back to the old days with my motherboard/processor choice, the computer will serve me well learning Linux based operating systems.

The Almighty To Do List (In no particular order)
  • Takedown, flush and clean parts to be reused
  • Takedown Case and Fans, Paint with HVLP
  • Reassemble Case and Install Components
  • Sleeving and Cabling (Black, Dark Grey and Green)

The theme of the build, if you haven't already figured it out, is of a typical business jet. I've had a passion for flying since I was a kid, and after enrolling in flight school to become a commercial pilot, it only makes sense! Therefore, it's only natural that my case will be painted in aviation-grade paint and topcoats. While it will be a bit pricy, I'm confident in the finish and durability. It will also give me a 90 degree heavy gloss I've been very eager to achieve.

Paint List
  • PTI Acid Etch Primer/Stripper
  • PTI Polyurethane Paint in Dakota Black (14038)
  • PTI PT-1003 Type I Reducer
  • PTI Gloss Top Coat

Parts List
  • Motherboard: Tyan Thunder S4989
  • CPU's: 4x AMD Opteron 8358SE
  • RAM: 32x (Brand Undecided) DDR2 ECC 600Mhz 1GB Sticks
  • Video Card: Galaxy GTX 780HOF
  • SSD: Corsair Force SATA III 120GB
  • Hard Drive: 2TB Seagate Black
  • Power Supply: Corsair AX1200
  • Case: Little Devil PC-V8 Reverse

Watercooling Parts:
  • CPU Blocks: EK Supremacy Nickel/Plexi
  • RAM Blocks: Bitspower V2 Plexi Blocks with Bitspower Covers
  • GPU Block: Swiftech Komodo LE
  • Tubing: E22 Acrylic to start, gradual switch over to chrome plated copper
  • Fittings: Bitspower C47 Crystal Links and a plethora of angle fittings in WHITE
  • Radiators: 2x EKWB Coolstream XT 480
1x Black Ice SR-2 480
  • Pumps: 2x Swiftech MCP35x
  • Reservoirs: Swiftech Bay Reservior
  • Fluid: Ice Dragon Nanofluid
  • Fans: 13x Noiseblocker E-Loop 120mm Painted Green


This build needs to be completed by June 21st, as that's my office's annual LAN party where everyone shows off their yearly PC builds. I'm very eager to turn some heads! thumb.gif

Suggestions and improvements are always welcome!

Subbed. Quad-socket computing and the shenanigans revolving around that particular motherboard have always been interesting.

I can't wait for something to go wrong and not be able to RMA.

Have you test-booted everything yet to make sure it all plays nicely together?

In sheer power, the i7 would most likely win the battle. Socket F still uses DDR2 (even though it is ECC) and is a couple generations old. I'm jumping back into the past with this build. There are places where I'm cutting costs for other life expenses that need to be taking care of, while still having a functioning computer that looks great.

EDIT: After reviewing CPUBenchmark.com, an i7 3770k scores roughly 1,000 points more than a Quad 8358 system. Needless to say, despite having 4 processors the i7's will beat me outright.

Sort of. All I was able to do before leaving for vacation was fire up the board and make sure that it turned on and beeped at me. Haven't tested for a POST yet.

I just wonder if you will pay more for electricity running that setup than if you just went out and bought a newer chip/mobo then? You said you are away at school though so i'm guessing you don't pay electricity anyway

But it does look amazing with all those blocks on it! biggrin.gif
