Yeah it runs fine and there are no issues in that respect, I haven't used it much yet as I don't have anywhere to really set it up and I know it will be going out a lot over the coming weeks. On the 12-14th it's going to a university charity LAN in Loughborough, 5-6th March PC Gamer Weekender and probably Insomnia i57 25th-28th March as well as that it will have to go out for final photographs too so it's more than likely going to be my LAN rig for the season before I find a home for it. I'm definitely not taking it up and down stairs each time!

This was just a stock run, i'm 'borrowing' the 5960X from OverclockersUK so until I get one which will live with it forever then I probably won't invest the time to get it clocked right, I thought that I would have one already but it's not a pressing concern for me now it's all sitting nearly completed in one piece.

Even at stock it's a beast! Bet you could get atleast a 30k score with it tuned in.

I got another small little task out of the way yesterday, the way I had mounted the Aquaero 6 in order hide hide screw heads in the front meant that the heatsink wouldn't fit.

Although it's not really needed to dissipate heat unlike on the Aquaero 5 it does look really clean so I wanted to find a way I could still fit it. The main issue was that the standoffs couldn't sit up to the PCB where i'd put nuts so I milled them all off flush with the heatsink.

It wasn't worth attacking them with any serious precision as they will no longer touch against anything hence I just end milled them off by eye with a small mill which cut really nice and didn't mark the rest of the part during the process.

It fits really neatly onto the Aquaero and makes it look a lot neater hiding the inside face of the connectors from view. At the moment it's just resting in place but i've ordered some adhesive thermal pads as used on memory to hold it in place.

Just a quick check to see all the fans are still operational after rummaging around with cables, all looking good smile.gif

Just one more little detail to address was the very stock Filco USB cable so I ordered a dank one sleeved in black Teleios from Pexon PC's. With lots of options to choose from I figured this would best match the build and the keyboard.

Fitting it was a bit too awkward to photograph as my Filco didn't want to split completely in half, rather than scratching the front edge trying to get it to unclip I just gently slid the cable in from the back edge.

Top work from team Pexon! I'm really enjoying using this keyboard and i'm glad that I went for MX-blues the light tactility is well suited to my mashing style. I've started to use Lightning a little with a 32" 4k IPS AOC and GTA V is looking absolutely epic although something isn't getting on with Windows 10 and causing occasional freezes in game. It's got a few shows to attend over the coming weeks, one quite close to our friends studio so final photographs have been put on hold until then, i'll make sure to get lots of teasers at LSUCS LAN and PC Gamer Weekender though!

Thanks guys! I've had some time to game on it over the past week and after a long time messing around with nVIDIA drivers and Windows 10 things are finally stable. I snook a 32" 4k IPS AOC home from work and got some hours on GTA V, so beautiful. I'm looking forward to taking it to LAN next weekend, hopefully I can tear imersa away from it.

How's the 4 way SLI working out in GTA V? No issues?

It was difficult to find the right driver and stop windows 10 trying to repetitively install the oldest compatible version. But now that's right it's beautiful and smooth. Just running FXAA with everything maxed aside extended distance scaling which is at around half. FPS is between 55 and 120 in the benchmark but I've been running it with v-sync enabled and it rarely drops off. I never game with live FPS overlays because that just ruins life but it looks great. My other rig has Tri-SLI 780's, GTA has no SLI issues whatsoever even with quad.
