Aye it'll be a monster, well, if Nvidia ever decide to send the fourth card...

My only real issue with the Liquid Extasy block is that the ports are in the wrong places for what I'd like to do, would end up looking weird. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the single slot cards!

Those frosted ''Ghosts of Titans'' are awesome. More accidents pls thumb.gif

Really looking forward to see what you do with this project. Loramentum is one of my personal favorites, so I have high hopes for this one!

Good to have you aboard Hans!

BTW, having more than 5 graphics cards with this mobo may still be well possible since there is BIOS switch 'above 4G decoding' which has not been tested. This is for allocating more RAM for device buffers and apparently the problem was with insufficient memory.

I'm not sure actually, the card will definitely cover them that's for sure. I might try to mod them into 90° pins?

This is going to be really awesome, keep up with the good work! thumb.gif

Thanks for the support smile.gif

The website for the power supply connector I got is www.parts-express.com. You can find their selection of C19 connectors here.

Aah thanks, could definitely prove useful

Best renders on OCN thumb.gif

They're all made from scratch using normal modeling techniques. I measure everything with a set of vernier calipers and just get to work. Most components are actually much simpler to model than they look, except the Titans. Those things are horrible to model.

Cheers! Hopefully I'll have some stuff soon, the mobo block test run is apparently finished and on the way so that'll be next. Things have slowed down a bit thanks to the manic i55 rush. I'm not personally going this time but the Parvum guys are and are a load of others who've placed orders with them.

How about a little " Virtual build log" showing how you create the render for one of the components?
I'd love to see a video of that.

Curious why you didn't go with a dual CPU mobo if you were going all out anyway. I know you mention ASUS supplied it but for 4x Titans, I think some heftier dual Xeons would have been a perfect combo; even without much overclocking room. Looks awesome either way.

That's actually an idea I've been toying with for quite a while. My main reservation is that I'm very much still learning on the job with many things. Certainly every time I venture onto the Inventor help forums I'm suddenly made aware of how bad some of my technique is and how little I still know about the software. I wouldn't want to teach people erroneous techniques accidentally simply because they've worked for me so far. I could certainly make a video about the rendering process itself though as that's much more open to interpretation, not to mention less software specific.

*Snip*

Aah the age old issue of there always being something bigger around the corner. Intel are providing the CPU remember, so we only have access to what they're willing to provide (high core Xeons not particularly sitting near the top of that list). I'd personally love a beefy Xeon over the i7 any day as those threads are handy, but alas this is what we have. There's also the issue that the dual boards really are massive, it would have substantially increased the build size even further. Lust worthy bits of kit though that's for sure.

I get that but just want to point out that there are 6-core and 8-core 2011-3 Xeons that are cheaper than the 5960X and depending on which, you could have two 6-core Xeons, 24 threads for the same-ish price, with a big upgrade path, if ever. And honestly the dual mobo board is not that much bigger; 12.0" x 13.0" vs 12.0" x 9.6". I assume the cooling solution on your setup is going to be massive anyway. Doesn't matter, as these companies have graciously given you free hardware to do this cool build. So I'm just theory-crafting. Ignore me. biggrin.gif

there is no "wrong" way to model something. sure there are good practices, but I always appreciate the opportunity to see how someone else accomplishes the same task - I say go for it!

LE ports are in the wrong places questionmark.gif I thought they are in as little obtrusive place as possible. For the record, I heard that for surcharge LE can make the full cover block which will also extend for cooling the SSD disc in the M.2 slot.

Dual processor systems make sense only in special circumstances after careful analysis of the needs. For the start, think about overclocking. Dual socket processors are locked. This brings definite advantage for single processor system. Take 3.0 GHz dual 6-core processor and single 8-core processor overclocked @4.2 GHz. The overclocked one will have almost the same performance as the dual one assuming all cores are used but since there is very little software which uses plenty of multithreading, the single processor will be faster in practice. Truth is that even high-end software claimed to be multithreaded is optimized up to 8 cores.
