Hello again for those that have read my logs, or followed along, or got wet with me in the Previous Builds that I have entered on OCN! Welcome Back applaud.gif

Once again ,for the 3rd time this Computer is for Home Use and is to go to the Queen of the House, My Dear Ruth. Never had I thought that when I purchased the S3 with Pedestal in white to match before it's EOL Date of 12/2015 did I think that this would be hers, but alas, I find myself in the position of building yet another computer that won't be mine rolleyes.gif

As most know, I don't build the computers to actually use, I build them for Liquid Cooled Loops, full of water that has no destination other than the routing we allow them.

Snorkle.gif I have no problem getting wet in order to learn the best path for least resistance when it comes to fluid. lachen.gif

Here is a picture of the Case after it's purchase long ago.



The Original Plan was to build on the X99 platform yet again due to the price of the 6 core processors for that chipset. I have been extremely pleased with the 5930k I have in The Division as the 6 core processor has been overclocked to 4.5Ghz for easily Over 1 year at this point with no hiccups whatsoever. I was thinking of building with the 5820k that I just used in Ze Popped Cherry that was made for a client's wedding present. It's price currently is around 350USD.

What I have realized and had forgotten is that the S3 is made on the miniITX platform Leaving me only one option for a motherboard, which is the Asrock X99 E ITX motherboard for the X99 chipset. Now most would realize that I have used only Asus Motherboards in my builds, and that is for a good reason. It was the laptop I used in the military and at home for 8 years before Southern Persuasion was built to replace it for my work computer thinking.gif

So Allow me to fill you in on the dilemma here. I have two options at this time. I can purchase the Asrock (Which I am sure isn't bad) that will go with my Computer Loop. It will match the colour scheme as intel uses Blue as the dominate colour to represent their company and I am going to have Blue in One Of the Two Loops that will be in this S3, Or I can choose another platform to ease my mind in order to get an Asus Itx Motherboard.

Allow me to Give you the Parts list whilst I think a tad more of the OP

Naturally I will have a ton of Passthrough's as I am sure you are coming to a revelation at this point:

Dual Loops in an S3 with Pedestal ? blinksmiley.gif How in the... is he... Oh My.. .Yea he is going to drill a bunch of holes... Dear lord help this man...

So here is a shot of my drawings of how and why and where.






These photos show around 7 passthrough in the bottom plate of the S3.... this would pose a problem as I have found out due to the thickness of the Pedestal edges.

The Case is 9.5" thick (width) and the pedestal has a 6 3/4" opening due to where the Radiators are mounted... I have lost almost 2" from the edge of the case (Window side) to where the PSU stands..... I am still currently trying not to pull my hair out figuring the dimensions of two pumps on the floor in front of the psu and where the passthroughs would/can be....

I am going to attempt to run the CPU and GPU in parallel for future reference, at lease "Appear" to be in parallel.

Everything in computers deal with math.... 010101010 and or building in One... Fractions or MM you name it....

A couple shots I took a while Back... Of course now that I have the log I will Provide more recent pictures.





And as Always, Enjoy yourselves in the build log. thumb.gif

TCO

EDIT: 4/23/17

Current State of Build.

I am a Marxist. Not the Sanders/Sweden/state bureacracy kind, but the workers' democratic control over the means of production kind.

I often use the debates I get into on these forums to demonstrate logical fallacies to to my students and debate teams I coach. Beware - your arguments are under scrutiny of adolescents and teenagers!
