into a bit of a luxury problem with the setup though: Since the PSU fan is so prominently on the front, when the rig
runs at full load the PSU fan starts to spin up to audible levels. It's not loud at all, but since I have so much radiator
surface I can turn down the rad fans to ~500 rpm or so which makes them practically inaudible, and the next thing
you hear is then the PSU fan. I haven't really decided yet whether it bothers me enough to do something about it
though. Maybe buy the 1500 W Platimax, since that would run at lower load relative to its full capacity, the fan on
that one might not spin up as much? Not sure. Could also buy a second Platimax, but I'm not sure where I'd fit
that, would be a bit tricky (I don't want to get anything other than a Platimax tbh because I don't have the time to redo
the PSU cables at the moment).

But even then, I could still hear the GPUs' power delivery system buzzing, which I'll never get rid of no matter what,
and there's always the pumps to consider. In any case, at the moment I don't have the money for a new

Don't get me wrong though, it really is a luxury problem, I'm very happy with the build as it is at the moment, it's
just the disadvantage of having such quiet cooling overall I suppose. biggrin.gif


The motherboard block is a MIPS. Was pretty damn expensive (~200 $), but very nice piece of gear. Originally
the screws were naked steel, I've painted them copper.


EDIT: I've also thought about swapping out the fan in the PSU, but since it's running 24/7 at load I'm not really
sure yet if I want to tamper with the unit's cooling.

Never will I work with thin acrylic again what a headache for me. Cracked slightly once my drill went through and caught. .

Ahh MIPS, luxury problems indeed. What motherboard is that and what processors are you running under them purty blocks?

If I can get my foundation to allocate funds, my next build may just be a dual Xeon server to work with data from the CT Scanners at all eight of my hospitals. Add a few K40 equivalents from the Pascal range and house it all in a TX10.

It would have to be named Ghostface.

Is that a 1000W or a 1350W? I thought that the eVGA cables were interchangeable with the Platimax, perhaps I am mixing them up. I can't check until Friday, perhaps somebody can confirm one way or another.

All done! Not 100% yet because I still need to add my lights (don't feel like setting them up right now haha), and return some of my Vardar 140ER's due to the metal clicking and the recall. I'm actually very satisfied with how it turned out. I've had a few people say stuff regarding the soft and hard tubing, but it's my build and if they don't like it, so be it. You can't please everyone.



I really appreciate all the help I've been given, especially about the case, and I mean ALL my questions about the case when customizing it, and especially about the size hole to cut for the passthroughs.

Now it's time to study. First exam on Monday for my main class, so no gaming for now frown.gif

Alpen. You might try to get a Fan adapter to connect the PSU fan directly to fan controller or MB. Usually the PSU fans use that small low profile PWM fan header. That is an easy change thumb.gif

It was so much fun building my S8 smile.gif



I have the pressure check going again today, if it looks good when I get home I'll be flushing with Mayhem's Blitz 2 tonight and perhaps Pastel ... Tomorrow! Then the full pics will come

Gotta say though ... I thought plenty of times this S8+Ped is just too small biggrin.gif

I really like your build, those colors were some of the ones that inspired me to get into this hobby in the first place, unfortunately the stupid slinky computer build killed that color scheme for me. Now I cannot see that glowing green without realizing that nVidia is burned into my retinas from it.

I want to play in one of those some day. Maybe I will convert one of my craptastic boxes over to an s8. That would be fun.
