Welcome to
Toys for Boys!

This build log will feature my X99 workstation build in my 3-tone Caselabs SM8 and a secondary system that will house my 3-year old Z68 components in the Caselabs S5.

Those who have been following would know that I have already completed phase 1 in my SM8 a couple months ago and have just recently finished my Caselabs S5 build. This introduction post is edited in to just compile all the build posts and pictures.

Without further ado:

Subbed, will be looking at this build. I'm quite jelly of your X99 upgrade. I'm still on a 2600k (still a beast chip) and X99 is tempting. What made you upgrade to X99?

Subscribed! That's quite the upgrade, and I'm so jealous of the motherboard.

Welcome!
Honestly, my 2500k is still quite a chip in games and autocad. But rendering my work in revit and inventor demands more cores. Since I'm doing this work professionally now, I might as well pony up for an upgrade. =)

Welcome to you too!

I'm just on my way home now, excited to finish the tubing tonight!

Edit
1st post brought down:

The new semester is starting in a week, so I've gotta get this rig up and running before that.
Sadly though, custom cables will be delayed till my connectors and other stuff arrive from Lutro0.

But this has to rush, so let's get started:
For this build, the upgrades will be:


Let's go in close on that 5930K.


*For any 5930K owners of batch 3427B248, please do chime in with your OC results.

And the board



I will do shots of the rams on a later date when the blocks come in.

Now to pack up and bid farewell to my going-4yr-old i5 2500k @ 4.5ghz, 1.32v, 65C under load. This chip is still a beast of gaming chip.
Its so faint I can hardly see it anymore but, Batch 31518183




I realized my old noctua u12p cooler is not compatible with the 2011 socket, so for all or nothing, let's throw on the blocks.



Some naked works of my 780.



Couldn't find my screw driver for that tiny gpu screw so...


Its about 2am here by the time I'm done with the gpu block and plate, and I've got work tomorrow.
So I'll leave you guys with this, and thank you for your time and feel free to leave your comments thumb.gif


2nd Post cont...
Leak testing now, and a leak sprung!
My fault for not tightening the aqualis pump res connection.
Minor leak, and I'm back on track.
I'll leave the system to bleed overnight. In the mean time, here's a little teaser.

Let's show some EK love





My big booboo during my purchase: Bought the aqc flow sensor without the connecting cable.
Why don't the include it???


Never realized till today, but my res is slightly slanted.
This will be fixed eventually. But as for now, I'll just leave it as it is.


Filling the loop late last night.


Not sure if its obvious, but the water level dropped when I woke up this morning.
WHAT?!

Apparently, the aqualis glass tube and the pump adapter was not tightened completely.
So I woke up to a small puddle on the bottom of my case.
Thank goodness it was a small puddle and didn't flow to the PSU.

Cables and sleeving!
Ran out of 16 awg wire (expected to), and ended up with a a set of 6pin & 8pin for the gpu, and a half done 24pin.


In other news, reboot on the Deluxe is a little buggy. The board hanged with post "Fb" and "61" a couple of times.
Not sure why, but a push of the reset button solves it.
Will update if I find anything else funky.

But that's all for tonight.
I'm gonna test run ASUS's 5-way optimization to overclock the 5930K.

Thank you!

Makes sense, would be worth the upgrade and its justifiable, the build has turned out real nice. Don't worry about the crooked res, mine is the same lol tongue.gif. Love the tubing, I prefer the fittings for the 90 degree angles instead of them being heated and bent. Great job thumb.gif

I've run into some funky issues with my Deluxe too. They already released BIOS 801 which seemed to help a bit but I still see issues with it every now and then. Gonna stress test my system a lot more this coming week so hopefully it smoothes out soon.

Do let me know how it goes. thumb.gif
I'm getting "B2" post every now and then still.
[email protected] replied saying I should tweak my VCCSA. I've never meddled with this figure though. Not sure what it does.

Also!

Log of my attempts today:
All at 100mhz bclk, stress tested with OCCT, at ambient room temp of 30C.
4.2ghz, 1.1V, 75C, Stable
4.3ghz, 1.1V, -, Unable to boot
4.3ghz, 1.15V, 81C, Stable
4.4ghz, 1.15V, -, Boot only
4.4ghz, 1.2V, 87C, Stable but too hot.

Will adjusting BCLK give better temps instead?
