I'm using dropbox now, photobucket is full of crap. I still can't believe that imageshack has turned the back on me after 6 years of great image hosting frown.gif

Didn't know yates comes in w/ that beautiful box! Where did you buy it?

Aquatuning! The US shops ship the fans without a box?

Hey guys, long time no see! I kind of forgot to update this thread... I'm not really active on OCN and I'm one of those guy that starts lots of things and ends up finishing almost none of them biggrin.gif
Anyway, it's been a while and the rig is running just fine

The photos were almost all taken down, but I still have some of me building the rig:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
p1010176p.jpg

This is a REALLY old one. I still had my ASRock X58 Extreme6.

P1010254.JPG

This was my first setup coming to life

P1010255.JPG

P1010291.JPG

This was the mobo with cpu, RAM and that Gigabyte mobo-heatsink-thing installed.

P1010292.JPG

That's just sex. Let me say it.

P1010293.JPG

Painted the backplate in black.

P1010296.JPG

Yeah, nice. That heatsink thing ended up being faulty. Wrote to Gigabyte about it asking for a replacement. I'm still waiting on a reply biggrin.gif (btw this was like, last spring LOL)

P1010300.JPG

The components came in one by one. The SSD mounting up there is 100% swag. I also swapped those cheap-feeling Phobya compression fittings with Bitspower black chrome 19/13, and boy are they good. AX1200 is also massive overkill, but whatever.

P1010303.JPG

P1010308.JPG

Nice shot of the fillport.

P1010309.JPG

Testing the best configuration for tubing.
If you look carefully, I installed also a UV cathode on the bottom, near the PSU, and 2x UV LEDs on the Supreme HF.

P1010310.JPG

"Detail" of the tubing in the front.

P1010311.JPG

P1010313.JPG

I still had a single 570 at the time + a 470, I was waiting for EVGA to approve my step-up.

P1010323.JPG

P1010326.JPG

Boom! LEDshot!

P1010329.JPG

External rad. That's a HWlabs SR1 360 with 3 Yate Loons. Quite some overkill for just a CPU loop!

P1010330.JPG

The front, with the EK Bay Spin, the Pioneer DVD burner and 2x Scythe Kama Box for storing wee... Eh, tools. biggrin.gif

P1010333.JPG

It's alive!

P1010334.JPG

Up and running

20120409_180032.jpg

This is my new setup. I've since moved back to Italy, in Florence, in my own little flat. As you can see the second 570 is there together with some LEGO Star Wars magnets and other random stuff biggrin.gif
The LEDs and the cathode were pretty low quality and they barely make any lighting now.

20120409_180059.jpg

That's quite some dust there, son.

20120409_180338.jpg

And YES. Ladies and gentlemen, I present you my MASSIVE monitor. That's a Samsung S27A850. PLS panel, 2560x1440, 27". Simply GLORIOUS. It was a real pain to save all the money for this beauty, but boy if it was worth it....
Along with the monitor, you can see my Das Model S Ultimate, my G700 and my Steelseries SX. The latter was bought almost new on ebay for 10€, otherwise I'd never spend that much money on a mousepad biggrin.gif
Oh, and there's my kitchen too, on the left.

20120409_180358.jpg

And this is the final setup I have at the moment. Yes, those near my pc are tuscan sigars. No, I'm not a Rockstar fanboy; I just love posters biggrin.gif
Sorry for the bad quality, but all the pics come from either a bad camera or a phone.

At the end of the day, I managed to complete almost all that I had in mind. I'm really happy about it, if you consider that this was my first project overall. The things I changed are:
- The 570 blocks - I simply didn't get em biggrin.gif I didn't have enough money to get everything and I had to prioritize. I could grab a couple cheap ones right now, but I'm not really sure about it. I might upgrade in the near future to 2 GK110s.
- The raid 5 ended up being too expensive with all that Thailand disaster thing. I've only got two WD20EARS at the moment.
- The mobo and the ram blocks. Those were like, REALLY low on my priority list, but still it could have been cool.
- As a consequence, the XSPC slim rads weren't needed so I settled with my single SR1 360.
- I replaced a few fans: the 2x120 on the sides with Fractal Designs and the 140 on the front with a blue LED Lian Li (I traded my Noiseblocker to my uncle)
- I was about to sleeve everything with MDPC-X stuff but ended up sleeving only the SATA cables. Guess what? I suck at sleeving biggrin.gif I noticed that just after spending 100€ LOL. But I still haven't surrendered, I'll try the next time. It's not like sleeve gets old wink.gif


As for the future, I've got a brand new plan. And this time, it's a big one. I've got plenty of ideas flowing in my mind biggrin.gif
I'll give you a small teaser wink.gif
