unfortunately I lost the design file in a hard drive crash. Most of the build once parts got involved was: pull out a part, take some measurements, cut something and then put the part on the new bit o case and mark drill locations.

The external dimensions going by memory are 24" x 24" x 11". It had to be very large to accommodate the radiators and ssi-eeb board. The cords coming out vertically are nice, but added to the height as well. I thought I was over estimating the distance between the cards and the fans, but it was a bit closer than I would have liked.

After many moons, I am going to finally update this tired cpu/ram/mb combo.

The MSI G7/6700k has forced a downclock a few months back. I was up to 4.6ghz, now down to 4.5ghz. It was showing overclock failed screens and causing os reboots. The problem with a system like this is the requirement to justify the expense of watercooling. So, will need a monoblock again because overclocking without vrm cooling just seems silly when the rest is water cooled.

So, heres the slated changes:
(already purchased)
-MSI x470 Pro Carbon (couldnt find a m7 at a reasonable price)
-GSkill Ripjaw 2x16gb 3200 cas14
-EKWB monoblock for the Pro Carbon.

(slated for purchase)
AMD 3900x (I focus on multithread programming, so I can actually use the cores)

Everything is running well.
(changes made since last update)
Samsung 960evo 1tb for daily use drive
Scrapped 500gb hhd
now using 500gb ssd for secondary daily use drive
added 6tb for secondary long term storage
2x1440p 24" ips 60hz
