[Build Log] If I Had To Name It, It Would Be Named... "LiQuId AsSeTs" b/c I Spent All Of It...

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
I have been spec'ing builds for the past four or five years, only to never get around to it.. And of course new developments in technology would quickly date those builds, causing me to delete numerous spreadsheets full of hours of research. Well, I decided it was time. Time to build the computer I had been drooling of on forums, and in my dreams. My recent obsession with flipping yard sale items for a profit has basically covered the entire cost of this build, so I figured it was time to pull the trigger.
What started as a Crossfire, tri-monitor Battlefield 4 machine.. morphed into a crossfire on a single 1440p monitor... And then, up to a quadfire, potential tri-1440p, intercooled, turbocharged, and supercharged, ultra extreme part time mining 'cost same as my truck' build.
I do not have a PSU listed, because I think I am going to go for dual EVGA Supernova G2.. I have a Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500w as a stand in for now.
Here are the specs:

Caselabs M8
i7-3930k that has benched to 5Ghz, also have a 4930k I might drop in - undecided.
Asus Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition
4x4GB Dominator GT @ 2133
(2) Sapphire 290x
(2) XFX 290x + (1) unlocked 290 w/a Accelero Xtreme III (might be for sale soon)
(3) QNIX QX2710 Evo II


Cooling:
(3) SR1 360s to be push/pull
(22) Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP 15s
(1) Lamptron FC Touch
(1) Swiftech MCP35X2
(4) EK 290x Ace/Nick blocks w/blackplates
(2) 100x15x1.0 Fujipoly Ultra Extreme Thermal Pads
(1) EK Supremacy Nick/Red Acrylic
10ft Primoflex Advanced LRT - Bloodshed red
(1) Bitspower Z-Multi 250ml POM - Ice Red
Bitspower 3/8 x 5/8 compression fittings throughout

I bought an H55 just to get the rig up and running, and to bench the cards for proper installation order. Here is where I am at so far...

Not only is the case beautiful... the RIV BE is a stunning motherboard as well. wink.gif
Recently I saw jokrik do an amazing build with one and a CL case. It was beautiful, in case you needed any inspiration I can find it for you. tongue.gif

Soooo... In my eternal newb-ness... I've been sitting here benching each card.. Only for someone to ask, "WHY?"... I guess that's a good question.. As, I'm not out to set records here, only be very satisfied with my end product. So, I think I'm going to quit my benching, and start installing the blocks on my GPUs.. I'm tired of looking at all this stuff all over my floor, and anxious to get this build in the darn box already...

Seriously...


Anyway, so today... I tried mounting my Qnix, and Xstar (thanks Excellentcastle for sending me some variety! I know they're the same, but ***..) to my triple monitor stand... Of course the VESA holes are really shallow, and the screws that came with the stand are either humongous, or too long, but too short to use spacers with...

Photos:

Smaller screws, still too long...These are screwed all the way in, mind you:


Smaller screw not fitting in spacer:


Crazy bend I found in my Qnix:



So, seems like I'll have to take a trip to the hadware store tomorrow, and pick up some screws...
