Hey all, it's been a minute.

Building up a new case, a lot of the details are still being worked out, therefore I'm taking my time on this build and not revealing my case of choice until later on.

I'm modelling the case in software as I usually do, but unfortunately my laptops' aren't the best at CAD, so I'm getting the actual computer hardware operational again for CAD use then getting to work. MY application for this build is primarily for use as a multi-core data crunching system at as little cost to me as possible. Therefore, instead of getting the latest and greatest, I'm using the same hardware I've used in the past except with the addition of another EVGA GTX 670 FTW. The 5Ghz 2600k will remain.

Enough of that, here's some pictures of back panel the Sabertooth Z77 mounts to.The polycarbonate panel will be cropped on the table saw later on once the case is further along....

I'm just gonna go ahead and ask... Are you going to be using evaporative cooling at all? and is that bottom GPU's waterblock tapped in the face of the block?

I love me some Sabertooth boards! I got a z97 recently and I love it. I really like that cable management too.

Can't wait to see what you're working up for a case! thumb.gif

One of the things I learned about Evap Cooling is it's very high maintenance. It's not worth the hassle no matter what way you try it.

The waterblock in question is one of EKWB's that I had gotten as part of my sponsorship for Arctic Rain. That waterblock has G1/4 threads pre-tapped like that into the face of the plastic from the factory with a geometrically consistent spacing of the fasteners that bind the plastic to the copper block. In other words, I took the right angle EKWB adapter and threaded it into the next hole over, giving me two different angle points to connect to.

As an update to the project, I had some issues with the Z77 and 2600K...

I have since upgraded... Snagged a Xeon E5-2670-V3 Engineering Sample (ES) off ebay and stuck it in an Asus Sabertooth X99...



Oooooooooo smile.gif



12 cores <3



Temporary housing for the system....



More soon...

That wiring is beautiful! Never seen anything like it, really.

P.S. Is this still a thing you're working on?
