That is one sweet power house you have there

Hmmm, Duke wonders if he is going to fold with it

BTW, you should get along with this post well

Thanks for the link to the 4x4 thread, Duke. That is going to be very helpful when comparing benchmarks and the like.

As far as folding goes, the development company I work for has a folding team, but we haven't been folding recently because we just set up a new office and were in a major push(read: ridiculously busy). Now that we have a little downtime, and I have this new rig in the works, I'll be sure to go on a folding push, getting all the development systems crunching during off hours. The test rigs should help a lot, as they are Core 2 Extremes with dual 8800GTXs.

Update:
All the cooling arrived today. A whole box of Noctua! They may be ugly, but I have never in my life seen better fans. The NH-U12P sinks are really nice. They only have 4 pipes, but the U shape means they do the work of 8 pipes. I'll post some pics tonight when I get batteries for the camera(I left it plugged in after taking the pics the other day, and since I had standard AAs in, they ran out instead of charging like the original Lithiums would have.)

I do have one problem that I hope someone might be able to help with, and that is mounting the PSU. I would like to mount it upside down so that the fan draws through the vent on the top, but the mounting plate on my case is unidirectional, despite being removable. I might fabricate a plate with some sheet metal, but that is a last resort. Does anyone make mounting plates for inverted PSUs?

On a side note, I am kinda surprised how cheap this was. I was expecting 2500+ when I read the title. Guess I forgot how cheap Opty's are.

Yeah, the parts at retail are worth well over 2500USD, not exactly sure how much, but I do plan on doing that math soon. There is only one reason why I was able to build it so cheap, and that is shopping around, and ebay. I got the mobo, the video cards, and the processors at significant savings. Both the mobo and CPUs are new(mobo confirmed new, we'll see about the processors when they arrive) and the cards are in mint condition and worked flawlessly and benched well when I tested them in my friend's rig.

Ok, here are the pics:

PSU, box, and cables next to the case. When the PSU is installed, the case is no longer liftable by mortal men.

Lots of tan and brown here. The 120mm in the back is installed via the included rubber screws.

This is how my PSU mounting plate was installed stock.

This is how I want it to work, but alas as you can see the screw holes no longer line up, and even if I drill them myself, the PSU will sit above the support rails by about 2mm.


It looks like I can just trim the mounting plate so that it will sit correctly. That is a whole lot easier than fabricating a new plate.

This is going to be brief as it is 3:45AM and I work at 7:00AM.... Sorry for not updating sooner, but ram and processors arrived over the last two days. Got the exhaust cut this afternoon, and updated the bios(FYI that required a floppy drive, and disks... luckily I still had a drive, and the requisite two disks, lying around)

Processors worked great. Ebay comes through again. All 8 gigs of ram checked out, which given that I have 8 individual sticks, is likely a cosmic anomaly. Windows is currently installing (XP Pro, until I can get a Vista Ultimate copy, so until then I'm not sure how many procs/cores will function)

It has been a long night, a tight squeeze, and a trip down memory lane, what with the WIN95 boot disk I had to make and whatnot. I'll leave you with a few pics(Also, due to the hour and sleep level, these are just resized, not cropped, again sorry). I'm not done, but it is getting close.


The whole shebang. Cables are actually not too chaotic. I'll clear the top when the fan goes in.

Side view. Lots of heatsink, little to no clearance anywhere in the case even though it is a full tower. Seriously tight fit getting that thing dropped down into the case. (Two man Job)

The video cards hanging out, doing their thing.

The empty hole. Tomorrow it gets a grill and a Noctua.

Finally the ram. (Does this pic count as proof for getting in to the 8G club? No? Well then just wait for the CPU-Z data, after I get some sleep and go to work of course)


Later all, and goodnight!

Dude that is just one SEXAH machine! I'm subscribed to this one for sure!

Wonder how well the dual Opty's will overclock? I know in their 939 days they were/ are beasts . Hope you have some good luck clocking that thing!
