I have been meaning to join the WC bandwagon for a very long time and I just decided to pull the trigger.

Some background info, I am a mechanical engineer who specializes in pumps specficialy centrifugal pumps hailing from Saudi Arabia (the weather is hot and don't go there they are too crazy).

The build is named like this since it's a three card setup and three rads with three screens... what better then to name it after a mythical dragon with three heads?! Also the theme of the hardware will be green and red!

My current build is as follows:

Silverstone TJ10-ESA
Intel Core i7 970 @4.2Ghz on Noctua NH-C14
Samsung DDR3 24GB
2xGigabyte 7950 GDDR5 3GB Crossfire
OCZ Revodrive X2 160GB
Yamakasi Catleap

The system is very nice and decent but coming from an eyefinity 23in system I wanted to have eyefinity back... Tried putting the 7950s next to each other to get a feel of the noise level if I wanted to trifire them... lets just say on stock they are decent... but when OCed they scream like banshees!

Now think about it if I added a third... or even a fourth... Not very nice indeed!

So went and just said... screwed time to fork out the cash!

Non-WC Order list:
2x Archiva Shimian (From Dream-seller from Ebay) (Arrived)
2x Active Displayport to Dvi Adapters (Cino_tech from Ebay) (Arrived)
1x Gigabyte 7950 (From Amazon) (Arrived)
1x Danger Den Double Wide Tower (From a local user) (Arrived)

Additions non-planned (X58 had compatibility issues with Trifire 7950s)
1x Gigabyte Z77 Sniper 3 (Bought Locally)
1x Intel 3770k (Bought Locally)

Most of my WC gear I ordered from FrozenCpu and they are as follows: [UAll of it arrived!![/U]

Pics of most of the stuff that already arrived:

The route the screens took to arrive... talk about detours!




Comparsion between the old Active DP that only works on 1080p and the new one that supports 1440p

Issues log:

Had a massive problem of continuous crashes when I installed the third 7950 and enabled eyefinity. Every 2 mins after launching a game it would crash.

Said what the hell lets go and upgrade the whole system from X58 to X79 and have the parts ready before the WC gear arrive... went out and got myself this:



Park it next to my desk and open the overlock.net forums and found a topic regarding quadfire 7970s and X79 chipsets... check the RoG forums... and vola a huge thread with compatibility issues regarding the 7000 series and intel chipsets X58 and X79 in general regardless of the mobo maker.

To say the least I wasn't pleased but if you look on the bright side... it's no loss since everything still in it's boxes and just short drive to the shop. Replaced them both for a 3770k and a Gigabyte Sniper 3.

Updated 11/9/2012:
One of the Shimians just died on me with no reason what so ever. Tried to get it up and running and no chance what so ever. Put it in a request for the seller to return it.

Hickups encountered:
1. Cable management is a pain. Need some advice there lads!
2. Aerocool controller failed big time on the pump. Can't control it.

Very nice! Wanna trade!drool.giftonguesmiley.giflaughingsmiley.gif As for the cable management I would plan out or at least try to visualize the route you want to take. Then try it before you sleeve your cables in case you have to or want to lengthen/shorten any. I used black zip-ties on black para-cord, but something like what you have I would try to find a nicer method. As for the controller, I haven't got a clue about that. Maybe post in the wc'ing section and someone might be of help to you.

 Anyways keep this thing updated, It is one of the nicest looking cases I have seen from DD imo!

Yup thinking of going it slow on the cabling and just let everything dangle for now.

Don't have kids so no worries... YET!

Just for a quick overclock... Ivy is so much easier then Nehlem in OCing!
