Black Knight: SkullTrail Upgrade Picture Thread

post #1 of 226
Thread Starter 
I thought you guys might enjoy the rebuilding of Black Knight since it's not every day you get to see a Soldam Case or a SkullTrail system


This is the Black Knight before Upgrade. I gotta be honest there is nothing here a sane person would upgrade...4ghz proven Q6600/Sturdy P5K dlx/4 GB of great OCing RAM/4 Raptor RAID on Areca 1210/2 x 250 for XP dual boot and storage/8800GT KO/750 Watt Silverstone PSU...it's all top notch and a proven performer...only SkullTrail would make me change out this set up.


First thing to do was to remove the exisitng LCS. This is a custom made water block from fstfrddy...been doing an awesome job.


I designed this LCS to be easily removed for service. It all comes out the front bay...


I did not want to mod the Soldam case at all..


Being super careful to avoid scratching the anodizing.


I use an external cooler so I ported the tubes through an exisitng 90mm fan hole in the rear panel.


M/F connectors seal the loop so I do not have to worry about it being fully drained.


I love me some fast HDDs...


This is a great PSU.. the DA750 runs quiet and stable.



Going into storage...maybe it will end up in someone's build down the road...


VGA 8800GT KO: a rare beast...I got this when they first hit the market...now it is Indignity's


KO indicates the top of the line for eVGA



Best RAM I have ever used...runs at 1180.


Back in storage...Indignity may want these if his Ballistix rov quirky with the P5K dlx


I still get excited when I see that box


And there you have it. Have you ever seen a case that would be easier to work inside?


DUST! The Skulltrail is an eATX board soo it will need almost all that room.


There it is...famed and fabled....


8GB of FB DIMM ECC DDR2 800 from Transcend.


This is the standoff template...a really useful tool since I had to add an extra standoff to the mobo tray...

A brief intermission and thn onto the install...

hru bb mmmmmmmmmm


Tux approves


There is a standoff under the huge SB cooler that is not provided for by the Soldam...


I said I would nver do it...but SkullTrail it...I drilled a hole in my Soldam...


Luckily I had the right metric tap for the odd threaded standoff.


Prepped for the FuZions


That's a pretty serious looking socket...


Xeons...not just any Xeons: 45nm 12MB cache Xeons...E5420


I intend to clock these to 3.0 making them like a pair of QX9650...we'll see.


Octocorage


A dab of Shin Etsu


Board is now scrwed down and rady for the rest f the gear.


DeSlag


LCS Guru in training


mmmmm bb


Yes bb


Fastest FB DIMM currently available.


Borrowed the HD3870X2 from Mistress Quickly


Ha this board is longer than the GFX card...imagine that...


Me likey...


Seriously gigantic pachage


90A heavy as hell too.


Time for some plumbing.

MOAR coming right up...

Almost a shame to hide all that...














I like these ties..easier to use in tight spaces too. Notice the special shape so it grips the tub all the way around?




Using PC Ice and my exterior cooler.













And that is where I got off too...
