Mountain Mods Extended Ascension Build - stage 6 more upgrades! - Page 5

post #41 of 57
Thread Starter 
Here's some pics of the new components.

The Aquaero 5 XT in black as Ive order it.


Animated screens from the menus


Water block for the onboard fan amp


Infrared remote


A video demo. Im getting 6 of the poweradjust 2 USB high power controllers as well to fully expand the system. To run 6 fans per controller(1 Rad) and a couple for D5s as the main head unit will only just manage 2 D5s with the water block on it.

For the poweradjust 2s im going to mount them on the 5-1/4 mount as per the video below but inside the case mounted face up to a rad for some airflow.

Beautiful rig!

Just curious, how scratch resistant is that mirror black finish? Am considering getting the same case.

You do have to be a little careful with the paint, i was just using a mouse on a corner of it for about an hour and made some light swirl scratches. They will poilish out with car polish, but its not as durable probably as the anodised paint finish.

Thanks. That mirror black sure does look nice though. Seeing as I have never built a WC rig before it might be best for me to get the anodized.

Edit: I read that you are considering to buy a i7 970? Why not get a xeon w3670 instead? They are higher binned and will probably clock higher. I myself am picking up a couple of them. There seems to be little to no information about how they overclock though. Saw a guy OC it to 4.7ghz ht on, prime 95 stable with a chiller with like 1.47vcore. As far as price is concerned they only go for 5 euro more where I live. I think Intel also made the recommended retail price for the w3670 the same as the 970.
