It's been a little over a year since I began this build so I figure it's time to breath some new and intense life into this beast. This time there will be no holding back. I've dabbled in my other hobbies over the last 6 months or so since completion, but have grown to realize this rig isn't extreme at all, so I have to change that. In the process of building a parts list for the new update Be ready, be excited, it's going down.


This OP will be edited as the build progresses with current pics and comments.

I'm currently in the process of designing a new build that will be completed once Kepler and Ivy bridge are released (I will not rule out quadfire AMD, but since AMD cards are inferior for folding I will most likely not purchase them until they yield equal or better performance for that application). In the mean time I have to get together the case and all of the watercooling components so it can be together ASAP. I'm looking to build something that will blow my current rig out of the water in terms of cooling and potential cooling ability and raw performance. I'll begin collecting components starting this week and will post updates regularly. I am attempting to design an optimal cooling setup for a rig with an intel extreme edition and 4 way sli. This setup will be run 24/7 for [email protected] just like my sig rig with occasional gaming thrown in when I have time between law school classes. I know there are a fair bit of you who are familiar with my last build, you will not be disappointed with this one. I promise it'll make Project Atlantis look like a dell budget box.

I'm through playing around with watercooling. I really want to see how much potential it really has as a cooling method. I'm aiming for a consistent 2C or lower water/air delta over both loops. I will attempt to change fans as necessary to achieve this. TDP of the system will be limited to 1600 watts (the peak of the silverstone ST1500 psu). Should have no problem supplying the power for it since it will be running off a 220v connection. My current setup is great and performs awesome, but I'm looking for something better, something that boutique pc makers wouldn't dare build. I'm hoping to make it the epitome of what OCN water-cooling section stands for.

Water Temps: Running 1.3C water/air delta at idle and 2.1C at 100% load w/ 4.8ghz and mild GPU overclock

All comments and suggestions are welcome. I will attempt to do OCN proud.
If you don't like overkill then you're in the wrong thread and this is what I think of you!


All parts are ones that I have worked with before in some manner and have earned the fat_italian_stallion seal of approval

What does this "liquid death" taste like? If it taste like old school Robitussin then I'm out.

That's a lot of raddage there. Gonna have to go old school on it.

Look at the Xigamatek Crystal series, around 20dba, 70+ cfm.
Although possibly I'll look at the noctuas. I was only looking at the egg, I'll check out frozen, jab an performance pcs in a bit

Thanks for looking. I'm trying to stick with an all black theme if that helps look for fans. I'm more than willing to pain though if need be.

eek.gif Definitely subbed.

"Overkill" is just another way of saying "future-proofing"
