Chrome has a mirror finish,nickel needs work to make is mirror...its totally up to you.

Check my sig for a bending guide

Well then, it's about time I joined up if I may say so. biggrin.gif
Sadly I do not have documentation about my earliest forays into water cooling (~2001-ish),
so my current rig will have to do. It will be serving as my personal rig until HELIOS (log) is up
and running, then it will be our HTPC/server/BOINC machine.

It has been named Zwieback Exceeding Useful Specifications, or
h163
for short.


The major mods are:
  • replaced the back panel with a new one in order to fit a 360 radiator at the back
    (no need for dedicated GPU in this rig)
  • took the PSU apart for some proper sleeving and made an extra cutout into the
    PSU housing for better cable routing
  • relocated the PSU to the front where the 5.25" bays used to reside

For those interested in the building process, you can check that out here.


Looks almost like stock, doesn't it?

Haha! But it is not! biggrin.gif

I must say I rather like how the 24 pin turned out (cable lacing tutorial for those who wish to
know how to do this).

And a close-up of the CPU area:

aw--zeus--2013-06-23--05--cpu-area.png


Overall I'm pretty happy with the rig, although considering ZFS is better run with ECC memory I
would probably have chosen different hardware if I'd known I was going to run ZFS (it became
production-ready on Linux shortly before this build was up and running, and after all the parts
had already been bought). Ah well, Xeon boards do tend to be less smexy, so there's at least
that. Plus, this rig actually got featured on Fractal Design's Facebook page.

So yeah, it's been good to me so far. thumb.gif

The supremacy is a great block and will perform better than the raystorm. What temps you have now?
