    I'm dying to know what model of case you are stuffing all of this into. Clearly an NZXT, but which one???

    Definitely subbed for this build. Oh, and I am with Trickson on this one..."I HATE YOU"...and you have some bad ass gear there.
    trickson says thanks.

    I can squash one rumor right now. It isn't an HPTX case, because you can bet your butt we would be doing the build with the mobo to take advantage of it. But it will be awesome. Thanks for subbing guys. :D

    Very nice setup. Can't wait to see it all assembled and what case you'll be putting all of it on. :)

    Update!

    Big update today! All waterblocks have been installed. It wasn't easy though. Yesterday we FINALLY got our EK full board block in, after weeks of waiting and reordering. I quickly discovered that this was going to be a pain to install, you need to use thermalpaste to stick the PVC stand offs to the huge block and hope they don't fall off when you place the block on to the board. Okay did that pretty well. Go to install the south bridge screws... Umm no threads on the block?! Very disapointed in the QC. Had to find my own screws that would self thread the block and stay in. Needless to say the whole installation process took like 6 hours. Ridiculous. We do have some good new though! The RAM is getting changed to Kingston HyperX and we will be using 2 HyperX drives in RAID! Enjoy the Pics :D

    I gotta ask Retell... I remember cadaveca sending me a video link of a case a few months ago asking if I knew who made it. Looking a the video at that time, it seriously looked like a NZXT offering that had room for water cooling all over it. Might this be the "case :)"?

    Gorgeous! truly pristine work! sooo looking forward to seeing this bad boy running ;)

    tip: i would not advise sharing the hot water between CPU and Memory...
    both generate a lot of heat... and neither will do well be cooled with hot water :p

    Found your conversation. If you are talking about this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqJQFfRlTqE&feature=feedlik

    That is an exclusive case to iBuyPower. I believe we helped design it though.

    *Cool fact, where that Erebus is being built is where the first picture of all the components were taken. That exact table.

    @S{orpion, I understand your concern. I am going to start testing the loop tomorrow ;)
