SR-2 Display Box [D-Box] Scratch Build

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone!

I've been lurking around for several months now, so I've decided to start something "new"... (Btw this is my first thread and first time using SketchUp.)

Why "new"? I've been through hundreds of work logs (and retail cases) but yet to come across one that really showcases the MB, as with the SR-2, I think its the main focus of the whole build (or any build). Your comments are greatly appreciated as this is my first time (so many "firsts" ) dealing with both water cooling and building a case..

Without torturing you with my bad command of English, I present to you [D-Box]!

Specs:
Evga SR-2 Motherboard with Evbot
2x Xeon X5680 CPUs
4x GTX 580s (couldn't find any SketchUp model so I used a 5970 )
RAM (undecided, please advice. The SketchUp is for "show" only)
Corsair AX1200 PSU (couldn't find e model too )
Double loop with CPU loop + MB loop and GPU loop. (Most prob Koolance SR-2 Block)
EK Supreme HF CPU blocks/ Heatkiller
EK GTX 580 blocks
Yateloon fans
02 x Laing DDC w Res (undecided) or Koolance RP-452X2
02 x TFC 480 or something slimmer/ slimmest Rad I can fit in?

Please advice on the above build, your comments are greatly appreciated! Now the pics~ (ps there's suppose to be an opening above the rads, wasn't sure "how to" in SketchUp)







Thanks for looking!!

Best Regards,
Obsidian Rift.

Pretty cool/unique design, you would just have to figure out a way to make everything easily accessible, which is the biggest problem I see this having.

Oh, and welcome to ocn!

One problem.
in Watercooling don't you have to have the pump at the lowest point in the loop?
Like the pump must be lower than the res?

well u should but if he has a fill line that can reach to the highest point in the loop then he shouldnt have problems once thats closed off. from the contrustion point of view what will you be using to build this case?

gonna need more than that one AX1200 to power it. most people use two 1kw+ psu's to power something that massive. other than that, this looks to be one of the trademark OCN overkill builds that we all love!

This also is a good point. Or get an Ultra x3 2000w PSU (not sure where you can buy it but it is in some other HW sites.)

i don't think 1500 will be enough. i've seen SR2 builds pull 2100 watts from the wall with less equipment. granted it was a tri-sli 480 setup, but if he is quad-sli'ing 580's i would imagine it would be somewhat comparable. I think it was ShtShtter or whatever is name was that built an SR2 setup and has screenies of his Kill-a-watt.

He had the CPU's and GPU's severely overclocked, if the OP pulls more then 1500W on a general basis, your right.

And that's from the WALL, it will always be higher before it's converted, and the Silverstone is fairly efficient. Besides, it's not unheard of for PSU's to go past their rated wattage and still be stable, look at Antec's TPQ series.
