Preface

So, unfortunately, my last build (Crowbar) has died before its time and I need to get something up and running again. The good news is that the GPUs are salvageable, so that reduces a bit of the cost in not needing the additional cards and waterblocks.

Since it is playoff time again (also in part celebration of last season), I am going to do a Chicago Blackhawks theme...using the alt black jerseys as my template.




After some time with all AMD components, I am returning to the Intel CPU/Chipsets. I will stick with the AMD GPUs, however, instead of also going back to nVidia.


Components

CPU: Intel i7-4930k
MB: ASUS ROG Rampage IV Black Edition
RAM: G.SKILL Trident X Series 32GB (8x4GB sticks) 2400 clock
GPU: 4x Radeon HD 7950
PSU: EVGA SuperNova 1300 G2
Case: CaseLabs Magnum M10 w/ 85mm Extended Top

Cooling

  • EK R4BE Acetal + Nickel - MB/Chipset Block
  • 4x EK FC7950 Clean Nickel - GPU Block
  • 3x HardwareLabs SR1 360
  • 2x Aquacomputer D5 pumps

Sorry for the delay, but I will have the pics of the work I have done up soon smile.gif

Might help to get some pics of the MB up first, but what are your guys thoughts on fittings color? Silver or Black?

That was my original thought (also considered red/white fittings, but I think those look silly).
