Mostly left over stuff, though I punctured my Phobya 360x60mm rad adn had to get a new HwLabs GTX 360 to replace it. It's a Phenom 9950be/HD4890 system:

Thank you ...yeah, I know what you mean. This build took longer than I wanted / I had to RMA the mobo (X399 Creation) because of an 'oopsie' and was using a X399 Carbon Pro on a temp basis - which has a different form factor and NVLink spacing, a big problem when using copper tubing. Apart from the copper, all water-cooling stuff was 'old' but pulled out of retirement and thoroughly cleaned up. It is actually a ton of fun to reconstitute old stuff...while waiting for the RMA, I put together two Asus E-WS (X79, X99) one as a as a file server, the other as the daily beast of burden (incl. DB productivity).

Yep, old stuff is way more fun than new stuff. Especially when you have a limited amount of parts laying around and you have to mishmash together some unconventional setup because that is just what you have laying around, pairing a 2 year old block with a 10 year old rad or something other is just fun to see. Or you can reuse an old mobo block to cool that old GPU VRM (the hd4890 and hd4870 had really hot VRMs) which is also fun EKWB+Mips= <3

...probably has been done already in some form, but a nice 'rad rod' build out of old parts could be interesting

just taking the best of an era, n 580 was the last of the Fermi! everything was truly win7+ dx11+ after that, right?

...haven't got any Fermis laying around, but a pile of Keplers (600 and 700 series). For OS > Windows Server 2008 R2, just because . There are also my old-time pals (an Asus Maximus V Ex w/ a delidded 3770K which does 5.2 on custom water all day long) laying in the store room...put all that in a giant steel server case from the mid-90s and paint everything flat black before 'rat rod' copper tubing for the CPU and three uni-block Kepler GPUs in Tri-SLI

Aim was to create a silent folding machine using recycled and new parts with a desire to have the least possible tubing. Case is a Fractal Design Define S. There is an Alphacool 280mm Crossflow in the roof with fans pulling (makes it easier to clean) and an Alphacool 280mm in the front with slightly more powerful fans pushing (the case has a filter on the front).

Pump is a recycled Swiftech MCP350 with the XSPC res.

First card is a Titan X with an EK block and backplate bought used.
Second card is a 1070 with an EK block bought used.
CPU is a Pentium G4400 (enough to drive the cards for [email protected]) cooled by a £10 block bought from China.
Fittings are mostly Barrow.
Fluid is EK Cryofuel and the tubing is EK Duraclear.

It runs at permanent full load producing around 1.5M points per day.
CPU temp is currently 45C and the two cards are around 50-51C. Ambient is 21C.

Done the frosted/satin look to the tubing.

Nice Folder. Pretty sure Black Snow would barely kick its but in PPD but that's not the aim of this build. It's a do everything platform that I plan to upgrade next year with 2 components.

Am sad mebbe.

I am expecting a 100(+/-) piece order from PPCs. Just went over the purchase listing and noticed that my replacement RAM sinks may be a module short. So instead of 2 modules I can only do one. Which hinders my aim of blocking my TridentZ sticks for the moment. Going to go parallel for RAM, CPU and GPU. So yeah I guess I will have to skip over the RAM for the moment and fix it when I get everything necessary.

Ehheh guess I was worried about nothing. 2 module kit.
