This is 2.0 since i used this same name for a MM build a few years ago. Had a lot of issues with my previous CL build. I'm looking to start fresh this time around. I ordered a brand new STH10. Pics will be coming up soon of the parts i have now smile.gif

5x1 up and running again. It still amazes me how simple Eyefinity is (compared to Surround). Did some gaming and will do some more this weekend wheee.gif):

Update 03/01/2014
560s Arrived from ppcs.com along w/ the extra compression fittings and XSPC 140mm rad stands. The 560s will be tapped to M4 later today.


Got a chance to wrangle up all the Cougar fans. Lovely box of green fans biggrin.gif

XSPC radstand installed. May use some scrap acrylic to raise the lower rads a bit (and to extend the front rad).

Lots of Cougars. Only bummer one of the new 140s was missing the bumpers on one side. I sacrificed one side of the 120's bumpers since that will be using bushings to install.


Update 3/6/2014:
STH10 in dah house!











Some mock up of the rads. Plan still the same: two 560s on top, 420 up front, two 280s below (along w/ two psu's). CL got back to me on the front 140.3 and mentioned ~ 2 weeks. I do have four XSPC 140mm brackets I can mod easily into the front for that 420 thinking.gif, so I've decided to go forward for now. I just ordered the top 140.4 (mac-211) brackets.

Update 3/7/2014:

Cheap mod to install the front 420mm rad tongue.gif. it came out ok tbh redface.gif.




Pump and reservoir installed:





Biggest mod and pita of my build (probably). Too some fiddling around and measuring a few times. In the end, almost had the thing but one side needed a minor adjustment and it was good to go. This setup will allow me to put enough space to clear the both psu's cables and the front 420 that barely sticks out. The top mid-plate isn't whole so it was tricky to install the xspc brackets.







update: 3/8/2014

bottom 560s installed and plumbed





Update: 3/9/2014

Plumbing done and I sorted out the left side's wires. The CM vga cables are tad short but I manage to get them in.



Finished w/ the wire management. As usual, I'm not too anal about wire-management, though I try to keep it neat and tidy. All the fans fire up but one of them had a good whine to it at load. Turns out it was the 120mm. All the 140s (30 of them) are super quiet at full and dead at 40% power, but this sole 120 is pretty loud. Almost like the CM R4s i had. Well, i have a couple of channels open on the controller, so that sole 120 will be on its own channel. I'm very impressed w/ cougar 140 fans, they're so yummy quiet XD.

Subbed instantly. Gotta love me a Wermad build :D!

 

But shouldn't this be called Mont Vert considering the sheer amount of Green Cougar LED fans you have :P?

Welcome guys and gals thumb.gif

MC just shipped my 2nd V1000, CL should be working on my STH10 order, Fedex should be delivering the 560s tomorrow.


Busted my hand today so new pics will be delayed for a bit. Here's a shot of the 15 cougar 140s and the sole 120 I got on Monday from newegg:
