[Build Log] Origin (Folding Rig)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I decided the other day that I wanted to rebuild my folding rig and eventually swap out the GPU in my gaming rig. So the initial plan is to pull the parts from my old rig and start rebuilding with a few new ones. I am waiting on the CPU cooler and 3 AeroCool Shark 120mm fans which will all hopefully be here before the end of the week.

Parts List:

Case: Antec ISK 600M (Previously Fractal Design Core 1000)
Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty Z97M (Previously ASRock Z97M Pro4)
CPU: Intel i3-4170
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (Previously ARCTIC Freezer 11 LP)
RAM: 4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1333MHz
GPU: MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G x 2
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 720W (Previously...I don't want to talk about it, I'm embarrassed.)
SSD: 60GB OCZ Solid 3 SSD
OS: Linux Mint 17.1

So, let's get started!

Alright, well I have everything installed in the little beast of a folding rig. Started up just fine...after I reversed the power button cable...

I haven't seen or heard much about the Antec ISK 600M, and it fit my needs, so I decided to give it a shot. And for $44, what could go wrong? Everything fits perfectly just the way I want it. Having a 2x120mm fans up front and another in the back running full blast should help with the heat that will ensue from 24/7 folding. The Cougar Turbines will keep the CPU and keep a great flow of air through the case, though I question whether I should rotate the CPU cooler to blow fresh air on the GPU's, but right now I don't feel like taking it apart to find out if it will make a difference.

The build is almost complete, I just need to hook up the SSD and wait patiently for the 3x120mm fans to arrive. I am happy with this build, with the only exception being the mess of cables in the bottom.

The build is complete and everything is stable. All I'm trying to do now is bring the temperatures down on the 970's. As always, the lower the better. Let the folding continue! thumb.gif
