So I got bored from my previous build and decided to spice it up again.



Hardware wise I will be mostly using most of my old gear (Since they are pretty good) but I might switch the mobo/cpu with a new case and full fledged new water cooling system.

Highlight of the build: Case Labs TH10 with a Pedestal in reverse mobo orientation.

Current Hardware:
CPU: 3930k CHANGED to 4930k
Mobo: Asrock X79 Champion CHANGED to Asus X79 Extreme Rampage IV CHANGED AGAIN to Asus X79 Rampage Extreme Black Edition
Ram: Gskill RipjawsX 4x4GB CHANGED to Gskill TridentX CL9 2400mhz 4x4GB
GPUs: 3xInno3D 780s CHANGED to 4xAsus 290x
PSU: Seasonic X-Series 1250watt (Will be adding another one later on) ADDED
SSDs: 2xSamsung 830 256GB
Harddrives: Multiple Versions

Planned Watercooling (Mostly EK Themed):
Case: Case Labs TH10 with Pedestal (Received).
Rads: 5xEK XTX 480s 6xEK XTX 480 - 1xEK XT 360 - 1xEK XT 120
Fans: 20xNZXT 120mm Red Leds Fans. CHANGED to Evercool Titan Kurki with push/pull config
Reseviours: 2xEK Plexi Bay Res, 1 Split Bay Res, 2x400ml Res. One 400ml BLING BLING and 250ml
Pumps: 2xDual Head Pumps (You heard me... 4xD5 pumps). Went back to a single loop so 2xD5 are sufficient.

I will be using my old theme... Black and Red or Red and White. I will make the decision once everything is completed.

Currently debating if changing the Asrock X79 Champion will be beneficial.

1.45v on 4.8ghz is pretty decent OC and can get 5ghz on 1.55v (but I am shaking it might blow any time biggrin.gif)

Case has been ordered and awaiting shipment.

Once I receive it I will do the measurements and proper geek pr0n photoshoot biggrin.gif

Okay Just ordered a used Asus X79 motherboard to replace my current Asrock one.

Most likely I will continue using the 3930k since it can do 5ghz on 1.55v on the asrock (Hoping it will drop a bit with the Asus).

and I have just finalized my Fan Selection:
Titan Kurki PWM


Got them at a sweet deal locally (No shipping overhead and 3 of them cost the same as one GTs!)

Go to http://www.performance-pcs.com/ and get one of their watercoold edition cases (I would recomend either the Obsidian 900D, Cosmos II, or their TJ11 since they have dual loops pre-installed). I agree with your choice on the EK waterblocks since they are some of top of the line (I will definitely upgrade my GPU to the 780 Ti when they release a proper VGA Block and the Supremacy is one of the best CPU blocks on the market. You could also upgrade your SSD's to the 840 EVO if you have enough money since they are significantly faster (I've got two 1TB versions myself). As for the hard drives, I would use WD Green SSHD since they also have an SSD like cache which loads you most used files for quicker access (i.e. games and programs startup files).

Good luck and have FUN!

Currently debating 4x290x Vs 4x780ti

Loving the extra memory bandwidth on the 290x for my applications (7680x1440 gaming) but hating the fact that AMD drivers are poo.
