Good Day All!

I am rebuilding my old Hydra 2 system due to a couple of hardware failures (Namely Mobo, PSU).

Current setup is as follows:

CPU: 5930k
Mobo: X99 MSI Xpower AC
Ram: Crucial Ballestix 32GB DDR4 2400Mhz CL16
GPUs: 3xEVGA Geforce GTX 980ti ACX
PSU: Seasonic X-Series 1250watt, Might go for a second PSU 850watt Corsair RMi to power two of the cards.
SSDs: Samsung 850 EVO M.2 500GB, 2xSamsung 840 EVO 500GB in Raid 0 for Games.
Harddrives: Multiple Versions

Planned Watercooling (Mostly EK Themed):
Case: Case Labs TH10 with Pedestal (Received).
Rads: 5xEK XTX 480 - 1xEK XT 360 (Debating removing one of the XTX 480 Radiators due to more space and real excess of cooling available)
Fans: Evercool Titan Kurki with push/pull config. ~50 Fans will be installed.
Reseviours: EK 250ml
Pumps: One EK-D5 pump.
Blocks: All Acrylic EK!

Debating a theme change to black and yellow but lets see the end build first. biggrin.gif
