[Project]Nemesis i7 Revival

Yeeeaaaaaah!

Thats right! ~Another~ worklog for my beloved sig rig that STILL isn't finished! Alright! Maybe - just maybe - I'll finish the entire case mod this time, side panels and all for those that actually do read my logs.

This case mod is featuring 2 very special components.
First being Core i7.


Second, being Frozen Q's (OCN's newest artisan) custom T-Virus Liquid Fusion Reservoir - inspired by my all time favorite franchise Resident Evil. Nemesis in my avatar approves.


^Yes that is an actual res, non photoshoped or from the movie. Freakin awesome. All yours starting from $65 for the non-Tvirus part and up to ~$130 or so for the full T-Virus UV experience.

I've done most of it already, but I shall still update the log in parts for :turds: and giggles. Don't want to lay it all out and ruin it for those who like to actively follow work logs. That is - if anyone actually follows mine -.-

In this upgrade of my Nemesis Revived ATi is....
Intel Xeon W3520
EVGA X58 Classified
GSkill Pie (Math) Tri Memory DDR3
and of course, keeping my dearly beloved ******ed 4870x2 that doesn't seem to work correctly even after RMA. Hopefully, it was just a hardware conflict in the last build that is now being upgraded.

Final Images (not quite done but pretty much there)

Getting rid of my Asus P5Q-E and my Q6700



poor guys



dtek fuzion is staying with me



had some work cut out for me. How? I don't know. I used nothing but distilled, pt nuke, uv Petra additive, and G11.



Took me about an hour and a half to get to that, still didnt get all of it out.



put the i7 bracket on



prepping my previous T-Virus reservoir!








drilled in the bracket holes



perfecto





ABSOLUTELY FREAKIN AMAZING









Moved on the cleaning the radiator











Heading back to the reservoir I realized that I made a mistake. The pump wouldn't fit under the reservoir like I planned. So I drilled a hole and fed the reservoir output into the pump I moved beneath the flooring. Much different then originally planned









Filled the loop up just to leak test. Simply the radiator, pump and res. Freakin awesome reservoir.


More to come

update 4





Adding Fesser Dye





Best Dye I've used. Way better then Pentosin G11



Replaced UV CCFL with Blue because the UV didn't do much for me and only took up space. The lighting is a ton better now.



Without light.



Topped it off.



Full view





bedroom lights off



Oh I forgot to mention I drilled out a T line for draining. I used a plug I bought off Petras. Not the Dtek one. I don't like those.





High resolution pictures of the resevoir. Enjoy.


Remember if you like my rig, prepare to vote for it in the July MOTM if it ever starts up. I'm going to use the delay to my advantage by maybe cutting sidepanels today or tomorrow!


For good luck try nominating my rig again here!

If I told you I'd have to kill you.

Always wanted to say that, never really was able to.

I'll be using an EVGA Classified, Intel Xeon W3520, and some GSkill Pie (math, not food pie) Tri memory DDR3.

Going to try. This time around, I have power tools that work!

I made the best hole I've ever made for my tubing. Its so neat and perfectly round. Especially compared to the shoddy drill bit I used last time that left like a massive rapture nearly several inches away.

I've never said it, I'll just have to be patient and wait for the right time


Any reason why you're going for the Xeon and not the i7 920 itself? Is it the price (Can't find that Xeon chip ANYWHERE in the UK)?

I bought the entire i7 upgrade (mobo, ram, and CPU) in 1 go from an OCN member. I was told the Xeon is just as good and someone else told me it is better but I didn't look it up.

Stepped Drill bits FTW.

The best case mods are never finished, but in a perpetual state of evolution.
GL with the build
LOL
I like that. You just got sigged.
