Nice work GHz, way to make it work with what you have in an elegant way thumb.gif

SteezyTN great build as well. No worries I have flex vs. hardline on the CPU as well. Just use my excuse: I have multiple processors and like to reapply TIM - without sweeping flexible bends that means draining the fluid (such as hard tubing or short runs with adjacent 90s to mobo blocks) before removing the CPU block. The passthroughs came out great too.

Thanks. I definitely understand it's not the best and not everyone will like it. But I was on limited time with school as my priority at the moment. When the semester is over, I will go back and clean up the runs a lot better.

And it's kind of sad how I've had people tell me they don't like it (they haven't said those exact words, but they were hinting they didn't). I mean who has the right to say they don't like a build, when they have never built a custom loop with parts to this extent. I worked my butt off on this build. If they don't like it, screw em. I can't please everyone. biggrin.gif

At the end of the day you can use the rigs to settle it on the Battlefield biggrin.gif

My rig Daedalic is getting cleaned & ready to come online with Mayhem's blitz II so the cables are disconnected

Here's some more hardline/softline hybrid: (I really go have multiple chips and TIMs)

Everyone has their own sense of aesthetics, and each person is as entitled to his as any other person is entitled to theirs, so yea, everyone has the "right" to like something or not.

That being said, some people's senses are more closely aligned with many others, while a few see things much differently.

How hard you worked on something isn't necessarily relevant to how it looks . . . . . there's some builds I've seen that are massively huge expenditures of design, work and effort, . . . and still look like monstrosities, though no doubt the builders see them as works of art.

In the end, it's all about how it works for you, the builder. . . .

Only you know all the factors that weighed into each choice you made along the way, and as long as you aren't second guessing yourself, then just let the criticism pass by without internalizing it.

That's an EVGA SR-2 running two X5680 Xeons (6C/12T, 3.33 GHz @ stock). At some point I want to overclock
those babies, though probably not by too much as the rig is running 24/7 at full load for BOINC. But 4 GHz would
be a nice round number. biggrin.gif

It would have to be named Ghostface.

Oooohhhh, that sounds drool-worthy.

It's a 1200 W unit (no longer made afaik). Was not aware of that about EVGA's units, might need to look
into it, thanks!

Yeah, that's on my list of things to consider. On one hand, I'm a bit apprehensive about tampering with
the unit's cooling. On the other hand, the unit was likely designed to still function properly in hotter conditions
than my room, so it might still be fine.

Thanks!

What ^she said, pretty much. People's tastes differ, such is life, and how much work you put into a rig doesn't really have any effect on that.

My personal attitude about the whole thing is roughly this: I'm secure enough in my tastes and choices to know that I'm primarily building for myself. I put my builds online so that people who happen to share my tastes can also enjoy them, and occasionally to get some feedback, alternative points of view etc.

But it's simply impossible that my tastes are everyone else's tastes, so there will inevitably be people who don't like what I've done, and that's their right. Because conversely, there's also stuff other people do which I don't really like, and I definitely think that it's my right not to like certain things. I don't usually tell people I don't like something ("If you have nothing nice to say ..." and all that), but sometimes somebody else will tell me they don't like what I've done. As long as they're not being dicks about it I'm perfectly fine with that, because as said, I build my machines for myself, not for them. And if they are being dicks, well, the problem's just with them being dicks, not with them not liking my build.

I do certainly understand that it can feel a bit disheartening, but in the end, it's your machine, and you need to be happy with it, and I wouldn't recommend letting somebody else's opinions on your tastes or on a compromise you might have needed to make for financial or temporal reasons influence that too much (which, yes, sometimes easier said than done, I'll admit). Somebody doesn't share my tastes? Well, such is life, no biggie. Somebody doesn't like a compromise I've needed to make? Well, I probably would have liked to avoid it too, but on occasion life just throws a wrench into your gearbox and you can't do much about it except switch gears, so to speak.


Sorry for the long ramble, I, uhm, do that on occasion. biggrin.gif


Oh, just so that I've said it: I do like your build, and I get the soft tubing compromise, and now go and study for your exams instead of wasting time on the internet! tongue.gif

So, my STH10 is here and while I want to make an illuminated midplate, I don't trust myself to do this well enough. Does anyone know of a company that makes these for STH10s? Or would any of you fine folks like to make one for me? smile.gif
