This case has been sitting in my garage for over a month, now it's time to drag this thing in my office and get to work.




This build will feature some parts from my old build War Machine 2

Asus ROG Rampage V Edition 10
EK motherboard block
Aquacomputer Aquaro
Aquacomputer Temp Sensors
2x Aquacomputer D5 PWM pumps
Samsung 1TB SSD
Hardware Labs Nemesis GTS 360 low profile rad
Bitspower matte black fittings
EVGA 1200v Power Supply
EVGA cables
4K Seiki Pro LCD monitor


The new stuff going in:

2x Nvidia 1080 ti cards
2x EK official 1080 ti water blocks and back plates
64Gb G.Skill Trident Z RGB memory
Samsung 512GB NVMe 960 Pro SSD M.2

Hardware Labs Nemesis GTR 360 and GTR 480 thick Rad for the CPU
LG Ultra-wide 38 in IPS monitor
Bitspower 16mm Acrylic hard tubing


This log will be updated weekly or every few days, depend on how busy I am during that week. I will be breaking down the old system this weekend, after I flush the system out and make sure the Mono-block is clean.

I have seen some builds lately with this case that don't do it justice. I can't see how someone spends $900 for a case and install barely anything in the case. I am hoping to do this case some justice!

I hope you enjoy this build in the upcoming weeks, I know I will. smile.gif

Thanks for checking out the thread. Here are a couple of pics of the SMA8 drained and half way broken down.

That big black enclosure you see in the first pic is how it was shipped and it is heavy as hell. I should have pics of the case out of that enclosure by this weekend. I didn't want to bring it in yet while I am dismantling the SMA8. I can see myself tripping over it in the office.

Well here we go....










I should have it out of the case later tonight. I am still prepping the rads and cleaning up my motherboard. I am going to try the Gelid thermal pads under my EK monoblock.









My plan is to use the GTX 480 and GTS 360 at the bottom for the GPUs. The GTR 360 in the front and GTR 480 on the top, I have the GTS 480 on standby just in case the GTR is too thick on top with push and pull fans. I will be using the Silent Wings 3 2200rpm high speed fans with the GTR. Fans, thermals, pumps, and lights will be regulated with the aquaero 6.

Ok, I am back and I have some updates.

First about the Enthoo Elite case and quality. When I pull the case out of the box, I notice a piece of the wood panel sticking out our the thin area of the foam protection, but no physical damage outside of the box. I think the foam should have been a tad more thicker in the areas with the gaps. Also, the on grip I have about this case is that some of the screws where not screwed in straight, some where screwed in at an angle, but it was only a few and I was able to fix them without the case getting out of alignment.

Now to the good stuff. I added another Silent Wings 3 140mm fan for the rear of the case. Also, I purchase 4 more 120mm for the top rad for push pull configuration. Yes, I am going to max out this case!

Here are some pics of the case below.



















I spent 20 minutes untangling the cable in back of this case, it was a mess.

I was able to add a thick 480 rad with push and pull configuration and add another thin 360 rad at the bottom of the case.














Here is the top rad installed, I will add 4 more fans later this weekend.





Here are the pics of the front rad and fans

I just ordered some 32GB G.Skill Trident Z RBG memory. They have been calling me for over an month and I got some on sale today. I guess I will be throwing up my other Trident Zs on eBay tonight.

Here are some pictures of the 1080ti and the EK block installation.
