Alright...I finally got around to starting to work on this badboy today.

Hardware is as follows:

Gigabyte GA-X58-UD5
Intel Core i7 920
Mushkin Triple Channel XP3-1600 7-8-7-18 6GB
EVGA GTX Core 216 SC (up to tri-SLI *still deciding whether to wait for 55nm or not*)

Cooling will be done by:

2 Thermochill PA 120.2
1 Themochill PA 120.1
6 Scythe S-Flex SFF21G 1900 RPM on a Rheobus
2 MCP655s with EK tops
Danger Den Tieton Blocks
A whole crapload of BP fittings
3/8" ID-1/2" OD Tygon R3606
EK Supreme Acetal

I'm not the best at taking photos and my workspace doesn't have the best lighting, but I'll try to get some decent pics for everyone.

Here are some shots of my new gear.

The chip



The Board



A few of the fittings


Custom Dual-chamber drivebay reservoir by CD. Designed specifically for my MM H2GO build by zlojack, built by CD.


Drain ports and pump mounting pics:

Here's the concept


This is how the pumps will be mounted (don't freak out, if at all possible, I'll change the 90 degree fitting on the pump outlet to a 45)



Making holes in my beautiful case was a tough thing to do



Pumps now mounted. I hope the BP fitting is strong enough to hold them. I may put some Petras Gel Stuff wedged underneath them to brace it and take some of the weight off of the rotary T.

Oops!

I'll get the thread moved.

And I didn't get Detroit tops because I bought the EKs before the Detroits came out.

You must first post in the registration thread, and then you will be given the link and password to the private mod section.

Ok...now I get it.

It's because you asked me

Why are you entering the mod competition?

So I thought you meant I was entering, when my intention was just to post a build log.

I guess I could enter, but it's really just a build. I'm not doing much modding other than cutting some holes, some sleeving, tubing and stuff.

Not like some of the stuff you guys do!

EDIT:

I just read the rules and I don't think I can be in the competition since I also posted this at XS, HWC and RRR's new forum.

Oh oops, I meant why aren't you entering. And I guess you can't because you posted elsewhere.

Here's some more sleeving. SATA cables done!!

Here they are (along with a little Sunday thirst-quencher!!)



Alright, next up, I need some input.

I was planning on going with a fan filter up front with a chrome grill on top for my front panel like this:




I saw these:


The benefit being, I can remove the filter without removing the screws for the rad mounting and everything. I already get a ton of dust (just in the several weeks I was running with those filters and the chrome grills I had huge dust buildup). Having the ability to clean the filters without dismounting the front rads and the hardrives in the lower part of the case is a huge, massive bonus.

Hmmm I think I've almost talked myself into it.

Small pseudo-update. My RAM arrived today so I decided to throw everything together to see if it's all ok.

Unfortunately, my current GPU (8800 GTS G92) decided it doesn't like me. *sigh*

Here's the RAM 6GB DDR3 1600 MHz 7-8-7-20 1.65v


Messy cables alert! This is going to be PITA on the final build. I might have to mod some of those cables to make them shorter.


Together at last!


Adios, crappy Intel TIM


Not for the faint of heart. Yes... I know...it's a...a... STOCK COOLER!!!!!


All together minutes prior to the disappointment
