    Comment, the attention to detail is what makes a great build excellent. Using black allen head bolts is such a nice touch, especially since its what I use for my fans on my rad. :toast:

    If this is as epic as it has intentions to be, I will make the trip to mecca.

    If your going for pure sexiness and i'm sure you are with the 4-way and gulfy

    go with a FrozenQ res ( Makes Excellent Work ) and with MurderMod Sleeving

    Looks like a Monster build for sure!

    hey, i dont live too far... you could come up and see the rig in person

    im really leaning towards dual gulftowns and the dual socket board with 12gb or ram. :D

    i would love to get a frozenQ res but right now the budget doesnt fit. red and black would be sick :D

    im going to sleeve everything but the MDPC-X stuff is kinda expensive.

    just throwing it out their iv used /still have several feet of techflex in various rigs and even if you do it properly it gets loose if you move it around. makes it look like a bad weave job

    i'm sure you can find a one of a kind res for that beast, also mdpc-x is second to none. I had some of the Frozencpu.com stuff but that doesnt compare to MDPC.

    The xeons are awesome but you will need the chips with dual qpi tho

    MDPC-X sleeve really is top notch. Just order enough amounts of em, or you'll run out sooner than you think lol.

    Looking forward to this one, as for sleeving I would suggest these kits from murdermod.com

    http://www.murdermod.com/sleeving-kits.htm

    Seems to have enough sleeving and heatshrink for everything and is actually not that expensive for how high quality it is. The molex pin remover is key though because trying to remove the connectors with staples or needles makes sleeving a PITA.

    Oh, and I have used techflex and it is not that bad but finding good heatshrink to use with it is a pain. As has been said already it seems that after a little while the sleeve pulls off the heatshrink leaving frayed ends all over the place.

    Good luck with this build I am looking forward to seeing your progress. :toast:

    half the stuff i get for free or almost free but believe me... its not "free" when it takes you 60 hours to review each item and you have to take 300+ pics.

    i'll post teaser pics here in a bit so you guys can see what im using.

    murdermods IS MDPC-X of those of you who dont know.

    i need an idea of what to get as far as sleeve sizes and lengths.

    Yeah I knew that but it is just nice to get everything you need in one kit rather than pick all the sizes yourself.

    Are you going to individually sleeve all your wires?

    probably not doing each separately no.

    i have some other wiring that needs to be sleeved and there will be 2-3 wires in each sleeve.

    Hmm, then the MDPC stuff may not work for you, techflex is not bad for larger sizes but if it is the kit that I am thinking of then the heatshrink it comes with sucks. Try to find the heatshrink that has adhesive in it otherwise after a few times plugging and removing cables the sleeving will get all frayed.

    I would at least individually sleeve the 24pin connector since it looks so sweet when it is done. :cool:
