PC-V354B Micro x58 Render Slave

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
After recently quitting the job to start freelancing from home, it became immediately apparent that I needed at least 1 spare rig to run renders. And this will be number 1. Hopefully as time rolls on, if I get enough work moving I can stack up 10 of these little buggers (or more I guess...time will tell).

Everything's ordered up, just gotta wait for the boys in brown now.

Lian Li PC-V354B

i7-950

EVGA x58 Micro

12gb (4x3) Patriot Viper 1600

Corsair 950

And a true black.

I'm likely swapping this psu into my sig rig, and using my current modular unit for the micro build, as it should be a much easier fit (just got the 950w basically b/c it was a decent deal).

For gpu & HD I'm just tossing in what I have laying around the house for the moment, as they're both pretty irrelevant for it's current task. I may put them on water when I have some cash to burn, but I'm waiting to see how it does on air first.

Yeah, I imagine it will be. Main reason I got it compared to some of the other micro's is b/c by the looks of it it should be pretty easy to stuff a rad or 2 in it. Obviously didn't do that today, but may do so in the near future. Want to see how it goes w/ air, as I've almost always stuck to water & never really had a 'proper' air heatsink.

Was originally planning on push/pulling on it, but there's no room to put a fan on the bottom side as the hs's right next to the psu. Anyway, got it all slapped together, sitting here idle sits at 38 which is what I would expect. Now just need to get some os on it & start oc'ing.

Note: I'm by no means a cable management guru, & also have never done a micro build before, so have mercy. Most of the wire mess you see there is actually all against the back so as not to obstruct the front fans (as shown in 1 pic). The sata/hd pwr/ & mobo power cables I tried to keep in between the 2 front fans as they go from the front to the back of the case.

The airflow to the gpu's is certainly not going to be great (they're not oc'd or anything though so should be ok), but I'm far more concerned about cpu flow, as cpu crunching is going to be this machines primary task.

Well, got it running at 3.8Ghz at 1.28v w/ mem. at 1600 1.5v. Pretty straight forward oc really, didn't really mess about w/ it much at all, load temps cap out in high 60's/low 70's. Pretty confident I should be able to get at least 4.2 or so out of it on h2o. (HT on fyi).
