Well, good news and bad news boys and girls. Got everything up and going last night and the i7/Asus board wouldn't post. Initial impressions are that the board or the chip is dead. So I had to take it out, drain the loop, swap the cpu block mount, and put my Sabertooth/Vishera board and chip in. I'll be testing the i7 board this week more indepth now that I have it out of the case. So that's the bad news. The good news is that I'm getting a great OC on the FX8320. I had it in the OS at 5.2ghz last night, but it crashed. I've got it "mostly" stable now at 5.1ghz. I think if I keep playing with voltages, I can get it stable this high. I've had it folding at 5ghz the past two months, so I know it's capable of that much. I'm only getting 1.53vcore in the OS and temps are holding steady at 44C right now while folding. This water loop is crazy overkill. The GPU is folding at 29C (1190 core, R9 270X)! So we'll see where the OC gods bring us this week. biggrin.gif

Edit: adding some screenshots of the cpu playing around. I got into windows at 5.3ghz but didn't try to get it stable. Really just wanted to prove to Paul that I could do it. tongue.gif I AM, however, working on getting 5.117ghz stable. I have it folding right now with 1.53vcore at 45C. O_O Here's some pics.

It's actually pretty secure. When you register and check in your equipment, they put a security sticker with a barcode on it and register it to you personally. No hardware leaves the BYOC room without someone checking the barcode. In fact, last year one of our buddies had to wait about 30 mins while leaving because somehow the sticker on his monitor had come off during the week, and the staff wasn't letting him out with it because it wasn't tagged. Of course, they ended up checking his ID and info against the registration stuff to verify that the monitor was in fact his. We appreciated the care they take. There's always people in the BYOC, so you can't check it all the time, but there seem to always be staff members/volunteers around. I have no worries leaving this case around.

Yea, I'll def put something over them during transport. Most likely, some pillows or something else.

"Hugs and kisses," hahaha, what a goofball. smile.gif It was good to hear that, thanks for posting it Hertz. I can't think of the video you're talking about. It'd have to be in a thread somewhere; I believe Syr always uploaded the vids right to OCN via photobucket or something.

I've been trying to skim through and find it. I haven't found it yet, but I did find this bit of wonder. lachen.gif I forgot all about how we ended up putting all kinds of thread tags on his build!

Figured I'd update everyone while it's slow here at work. tongue.gif

Quakecon is quickly approaching. I can't believe that it is only 7 days away. Seems like forever ago that I said, "Hey, I'm going to rebuild Silentium for Qcon next year." Time has really flew by. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'm really impressed with how nice the case has come along from sleeving, to dusting, to getting the huge water loop back in it, etc. The past month or two has really blown past me. I can't wait to get it on the table at Quakecon and meet you guys that are coming. Sorry for my rambling, haha. Anyhoo, onto updates.


I've got the 8320 stable at 5.116ghz. It's been folding going on 2 days now without interruptiong or crash. I'd like to go higher, but I feel like I'm pretty close to maxing my PSU with the amount of stuff I have on it right now (TX750) and don't want to stress it anymore than I have to. 5.1ghz is certainly a fantastic OC and nothing to be ashamed up at Qcon. So I'm happy with it for now. While in Dallas, I'm hoping I can find a good deal on a PSU at the Fry's over there (we don't have one close to my place).

I still need to buy more screws to attach the rads to the front panel. I think of the 32 total bolts I need, I have 22 or so. I'm buying them at Home Depot and they only stock so many at a time, haha. I could only find stainless steel, so I'll need to paint all of them this weekend so they don't stick out against the rest of the black on the case. Besides that, I need to find my extra PCI slot covers, then cut them to fit the mobo tray, then paint them black. My fan extensions came in, so I sleeved them and now have all 8 rad fans hooked up. The wiring will need to be ziptied down and cleaned up on the rads as well. But I'll do that when I drain the loop. I also got in my third 90 degree fitting, so I'll have to put that in when I drain the loop for transport Wednesday as well. This 90 will go at the pump (where I have one now) so that the first two I bought will go back on the rads. I've also completed my last minute secret project for the case today. I had to do some polishing on it (hint hint). I'll have some pics up of it tonight. Overall, it's just small stuff at this point. Just wiping down, bolting in, and making sure everything is perfect. The last good news is I have a friend with a DSLR coming over tonight, so I'm hoping I can get some great night shots for you guys!

Pics tonight. Love, peace, and chicken grease - repo!

You can certainly blow your own horn, because it looks absolutely amazing, I'm sure everyone here can agree on that.

Great that it's stable. For a power supply, I'd recommend a Cooler Master V1000. It's been excellent for me. Seasonic unit.

Thanks, Neuro. I think it looks pretty dang great myself. It's a far-cry from the loop I had in before wtih 2x240 rads. That wasn't nearly as "right" as this. It's meant to have these huge rads. I actually found a post by Syr at the beginning of his log for Silentium that sums this whole case up so well: "This project is about excess: Unbridled, unashamed PC debauchery; completely unecessary, and entirely bereft of conventional wisdom. It is liquid cooling with extreme prejudice." I LOVE that last sentence. Extreme prejudice is right! Just ask my 8320 tongue.gif

But here, let me give you guys the final update with my secret project before I post finished pics (got a friend with a DSLR to come by yesterday)!

Here's some shots of draining the water loop. This was when I had to swap over the mobo/cpu and had to swap the cpu block mounting plate which meant taking the block apart which meant draining the loop, lol. The drain plug works fantastically well. And Syr's design with the front panel being removable makes draining really nice because you can tilt the rads around as needed.


Step 1: take bottom bolts out of door that hold it onto case; 2: let door hang open slightly; 3: take plug off t-valve; 4:connect hose to t-valve; 5: open valve and drain. Easy as that!





And here you can see how easy it is to take the door loose from the case to tilt the rads around and get out every last bit of water. smile.gif





Ok, so it's finally time for my secret project. A few weeks ago, I had the idea to use one of Syr's pump stands for something. Since I don't have D5s, I figured the stands should get used for something. I had some acrylic Syr cut for me years ago for a project I had that never came to fruition, but I knew they'd work just fine here. I decided to make a thank you/info plaque for the case. Here's my starting point: one pump stand and a piece of authentic Syrillian-cut acrylic. smile.gif





I took the paper off and started to buff the sides to a high polish. Let me tell you, I spent an hour or so just sanding this thing. 800 grit, 1000 grit, 3000 grit, then a hand polish with a rubbing compound. I cannot FATHOM doing a project as large as Silentium. Just the polishing would crush me. Let alone cutting panels that fit to each other with errors. I really understand the work that went into this case now...





After the 800 and 1000 grit paper, here's what it looks like beside a piece that's rough cut.





And here's what the edge looks like after some fine-grit rubbing/polishing compound.





Next I applied a vinyl I had cut at a local sign shop onto the piece. Here it is. thumbsupsmiley.png





Then I used some 3M double sided tape to attach it to the pump stand. This whole piece will go inside the left half of the case, right under the mobo and in front of the HDD cage. I think it will look great in there right in front of the red light.





Finished.





So there you have it folks. This is the last "update" per say. I'm calling this thing FINISHED and ready for QUAKECON! As mentioned in an earlier post, I still have some small things to get finished, but the biggest hurdles are behind us. Thank you all for joining me for the ride and thank you for your support. And as my sign says, a special thank you to @lawrencendlw, @PaulWuzHere, @Lutro0, @Supertoast22, and @underdog1425 for the support, donations, time, phone calls, and pushing you gave me.

Man, too early in the morning for these feels. It really means a lot to me to see this in such glory, even if I don't show it very much. I am not good at this. Can't freaking wait to see the love it will get at Quakecon!

Never too early for the feels. tongue.gif I know how much it means to you, no worries. I can't wait to meet people and talk about it at Qcon either!

Yay, I feel included xD
Well done Repo, very much liking the little plaque. You've got to respect the hours put into that case and every detail obsessed over. I remember you bondo-ing up those hinges because they were too fancy looking.
Namaste maestro.
And you didn't do too bad either Repo tongue.gif
