I've haven't been around OCN much lately, I'm sad I've missed so much of this log. Things are looking really good, it's been fun watching it take shape over the last few pages thumb.gif.

I emailed PPCS about it and wanted to let them know. No wonder my air leak test kept dropping air. I told PPCS that they wiggles and it would leak air, but it never leaked when I had the coolant it. Never had any problems until now. SO far, that's only one that leaked, so I had to rig something up to finish the loop. Im not even going to worry about an RMA because I got it working. It just means im out $4.49 lol.

Like I said, "get the Bitspower fittings"

Haha, yup, can get heavy indeed. I weighed the tray on my build, 9.3 kg with blocks and fittings (~20.5 lbs). eek.gif

Indeed. I'm rather grateful I don't live alone, don't think I could lift my machine around on my own. Well, I can
lift it from a pure weight-perspective, but its size combined with the weight make it a rather tricky proposition.
Don't have it on my desk though, but on a separate piece of furniture set aside for the build, so I can at least
move it around on that fairly easily when need be.

Yeah, me too. I've got mine on an old roll-around microwave stand. The case feet hang over the front and rear of the stand:



Guess I need a bigger stand.

Haha, guess you do. biggrin.gif

Mine's just an office shelf thingy which is about on the same height as my desk, so I basically have the case
almost on my desk, but with the advantage of being able to move it around if need be. Though I don't have
casters, just felt feet (wood floor, works very well).

Guys, I appreciate all the support on my build. I understand some of you won't like it, but I do. And honestly, that's all that matters. At times, this build was rushed because I had so much going on that was much more important. Later this week, probably Monday after my huge exam, I will try and take some "glamor shots" haha. The build is done, but I still need to add my lights, work on the cable management, and figure out which of my 140ER vardars are giving me the bad sound.

My temps are not what I wanted, except the water temps. My water temps have dropped nearly 10c. Now my two Titan x temps did drop about 10c, and during gaming I reach about 49-50c. When benching, about 56c. With my added 480 and 560, I was hoping for temps below 40 or 45, but I cannot complain. This is with my modded bios running 1.274v and 1506mhz.

I've also given up on a silent PC. Turns out that corsair link only drops fans to 40c, and those vardars are kind of loud at that speed. Although it could be one or two for the 140ER's that are making that sound. I will have to check Monday.

It's actually the NZXT Hue. I may replace it with better LEDs later though. It's an okay product, but the 5.25 bay requirement is irritating. I can't fit it anywhere in my case, except by using double sided padded tape to the back of the movie tray.
