    C/m leaves much to be desired but I didn't build it.
    Can't deny c/m seems to be tricky/annoying due to mobo size (form factor EEB 12"x13").
    When given the opportunity, I will go over there to take some pictures that do justice to that little moster.-

    I`d like to see 32 cores running cinebench.

    Thanks guys! In, what seems like, another life I was a honor roll photography student. Although I would not liken this to any of my assignments, the eye for artistic lingers. Despite a life full of chaos and stress that clouds my concentration on such endeavors.

    What they mean is your screen is awfully glossy. At least, that's my interpretation.

    I've been wanting to watercool my 7970s with those blocks, but didn't know how they would look together, how they link together when that close, and how they perform compared to, say, an EK FC block or a Heatkiller FC block.
    Waiting on results.:toast:

    To link together the blocks I'll use 2 crossfire bridges

    I shot this with a delayed flash, to get the reflection, then to light the computer with a soft flash.

    The screen is not glossy. It is a bit dirty though.

    Inside the Compaq Evo. Added a fan that blow air outside through a pci slot, a pci USB 2.0 card and for the inside port I added a Kingston 8gigs for backing up the drivers, softwares and others for when I format the whole computer. Also the psu fan was noisy so I did put an Antec 80mm fan.

    With the FM2 the stock cooler is a little loud. I looked and looked for an aftermarket cooler and the two that I liked were $50 so I looked threw my junk and found the Zalman Heatsink I use to test boards. The fan and mounting hardware is gone but I think it will fit. So after measuring I e mailed Zalman and ordered a new fan and hardware $9 shipped.

    First a vinegar and salt bath

    Then new hardware

    Ok its not fitting over the memory soooo

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now the memory gets cooled from both directions

    [​IMG]

    GPU /CPU temp was 70c / 56c with the fan at 8. Now 53c / 38c With the fan at 1..... Furmark under load

    The PSU is now the loudest thing

    last build still in a HAF XB moving to a more "modern" setup as i've said some post above.

    ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 i5-2400 8gb Gskill ARES 2133 Asus Matrix GTX580 Platinum (a 2nd will come later this week)
    [​IMG]
    a little(huge) bit of dust as usual when i mount a rig but hey the i5-2400 i found in a dump run as fine as if it was new. also i hate ASRock for doing narrower ATX board :rolleyes:
    [​IMG]
    i tested my InWin 700w 80+gold PSU in SLI mode (Matrix+Zotac 580) it handle it pretty well at 881/1002(4008) i guess dual Matrix will not be a problem.

    now, works to come: i have a spare H80 i think to use it instead of the HR02 (while waiting till i have all the pieces for a custom loop, planning on a CPU loop but not GPU), on the CPU upgrade side i have in mind a i7-3770K (or a non K) still a non K i doubt the price lowering would be worth it, also i came across a Xeon E3-1275V2 at a price of 199chf atm, the Z77E4 is compatible with (does Xeon can run without ECC memory?) iirc a E3-1230 is a i7-3770(minus the useless IGP) equivalent, tho Xeon are barely overclockable.

    the question is should i try to find a i7-3770K or should i go for that E3-1275V2, if i can get it at a lower price than a i7-3770(non K) overclockability is not essential (hence the initial dilemma over a i7-3770K or 3770)
