Getting things started with a clients Project Log...I'm calling it Heat as that's what it creates right now...lol!

This has been a long time coming for my client as he wanted to use the Devil's Canyon i7 as soon as it was announced. Here it is in it's current state:

Intel i7-4790K@4.9GHz+!
Asus Maximus VI Extreme with ROG Controller!
16GBs of Red Corsair Vengeance DDR3-2400!
Corsair Hydro H110 in Push with Corsair AF140's!
2 X Samsung 840 EVO 250GB's(One for Windows 7, one for OS X Mavericks)Yes it's a Hackintosh
2 X 2TB Seagate Storage Drives!
Asus DC II GTX 780 Ti 3GB!(A 2nd card is in the plans)
Corsair AX760 Power Supply!
In Win Grone in White with Blue LED Fans up front.
(This case is a temporary solution as he will be moving to a better case shortly)



Plans for the build:
Corsair 900D/750D(Which do you think would be more Epic?)
A Full EK setup for the Water.
360mm EK PE Radiator for the top(Push/Pull Intake if possible)
240mm XTX Radiator for the front/bottom(Push/Pull)
Supremacy CPU Block
EK Full Cover GPU Block
Primochill Blood Red Tubing
All EK Compression Fittings(Thinking black or silver)
EK Res X3 150L
EK D5 Pump with Clear top
Corsair SP120's for the Rads and AF140's for case
NZXT Hue LED Lighting kit
Black, Red and White Cable Sleeving for the power supply!
Hopefully a much higher overclock on the CPU....

How high do you think it'll go?

Picture of where it is now:

Thanks for reminding me, he has plans to add a second. After we are done with the water works though!

Oh nice, well both are good options then but I still might go for the 750D.

I'm leaning towards the 750D as well. Just wouldn't seem right using anything but 480's in the 900...lol

OK, you guys, my customer once again changed plans on the build and is pretty much maxed out on what he can add to it.

Introducing the new Project Heat:

Intel i7-4960X running at 4.8GHz!
Asus Rampage IV Extreme X79 Motherboard!
32GBs of Corsair Vengeance Pro Memory 2400MHz!
3 X Samsung EVO 250GB SSD Drives!
3 X 2TB Western Digital Hard Drives for storage!
Dual Asus Direct CU II GTX 780 Ti's In SLI!
Corsair AX1200i Power Supply!
Corsair 750D Case!
EK L360 Water Cooling Kit with Red Primochill Tubing(3/4ID/5/8OD)
Dual boots Windows 7 Ultimate and OS X Mavericks 10.9.4!

This is where it sits now, he is finally happy with the amount of performance he has on tap. Now we begin planning his dual loop water cooling setup....can anyone say 900D!

I didn't take too many pictures of it as we are no where near finished but here it is in its current state!

This is where it stands right now. Have to figure out a small issue with the GPU's though.

Booting into Windows without any GPU tweaking software installed/running, the GPU's are clocking them selves to 1361MHz when running the Valley/Heaven Benchmarks!
If we alter the core/memory speeds, even by 2MHz, it will auto restart as soon as the bench loads.

No blue screen, no driver crashes, just a straight restart....like hitting the restart switch.

If anyone has any ideas about what could cause this please write/respond!

I think this needs to be posted on more forums tongue.gif obviously!
