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

post #11 of 17
very true, I am just a fan of overkill

besides, where else would you need by ANY means more than 1500w than OCN?

Oh, and welcome to ocn!

Hi all! Thanks for all your replies/suggestions!
I would like to apologise for some missing information.

There is a back panel/box behind the MB where all the cable management will be done so it will look clean from any angle. Will place a fill port on top as well and the tubings for the two cpus will run hidden inside too.

I'm still deciding on the mateials of choice but yes the display cover will be acrylic. Am considering Aluminium for the main compartment too.

Will post some pics on the above mentioned when I can figure out SketchUp more indept.. Gime a few days ya

And be done with it Nice design, awaiting pictures!

Hi All, thanks for the suggestions!
But Coolmiester used only a AX1200 in his Project: SR-2 Stacker
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=257770

And he uses a lot more gear than what I'm planning. I guess I'm "safe"? Any advice?

I think it was ShtShtter or whatever is name was that built an SR2 setup and has screenies of his Kill-a-watt.

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.

looks good. cant wait to see how it turns out

I would 100% agree with a few components as I use them and they work amazingly well:

PSU - Silverstone ST1500W PSU
Memory - G.SKILL Trident 2000Mhz CL8 (This memory rocks and enables you to run at 4.5Ghz at full speed and timings WITH CL8 , its hard to find now but worth every penny)

Also BE CAREFUL to make sure the CPU blocks will clear the mobo block. I had to dremel the corners of my Swiftech Apogee XT blocks to allow for clearance with the Koolance mobo block. The Koolance cpu blocks should clear however w/o prblems where others mounting brackets rub against the edge and require "creative modification" to seat roperly and its easy to not even realize that one corner of the block is not seated properly.

Also: Great design concept. Im considering something similar. One thing to ponder is that I also wanted to showcase the mobo; BUT once populated with 3 or 4 GTX580's it will be very very little to see aside from the cards

Another note is that this setup is pretty restrictive in flow. you may want to consider two (2) mcp-355 in series to maintain head pressure and flow rate. Ideally a single 355 on the mobo and cpu and another loop for the gpu's which you really should run in parallel ( all inlets get a dedicated feed from radiator and all outlets also have a dedicated return to the pump ) Downside is that if youre using 1/2" tubing the primary feed and exhaust tubing should be 5/8" or greater to make sure your supply feed has enough volume to feed the gpu's .
