*** The MOTHER of all my previous builds x 2 ***


Updated build pix - Lower half of page 23&24

UPS just arrived with a few very very large boxes. I will start posting the build log below. First pic is a sample of some of the gear

So I wanted to do something I have not yet done before. Build a rig that I knew could last at least 2 years w/o me tearing it completely apart every few months trying to make it better and better and better. Will it work out? Well I can only hope the nV 5XX series dont launch soon and the AMD 6XXX series given driver history wont send me looking to bail anytime soon

So I ordered the best gear I could find as of yesterday courtesy of UPS overnight.

Drumroll PLZ!

Hint #1 :










Full Build List:

1 x EVGA SR-2 Mother Of ALL Boards
2 x Xeon X5680's
1 x 24GB DDR3 2000Mhz G.Skill
3 x GTX480's
3 x Koolance GTX480 Blocks
1 x Koolance SR-2 Mobo Block
3 x MCP-655 Pumps or 3xMCP-355 Pumps (Depending on performance)

First round of unboxing.

#1: 6 Core Xeon X5680 Twins:



#2: Swiftech XT 1366 Water block



#3: The mother of all boards. This things is MASSIVE, I dont even know how to hold it lol. For size I put it infront of 28" monitor to get perspective on just how insanely massive it is.





SLI/ TRI-SLI/Quad SLI bridge and diag board included:




Still waiting on FedEx to deliver the rest of the blocks I goofed and didnt get overnight so it'll be tuesday before they deliver since the Holiday here in the USA Monday
