    I like it so much I am selling my own LGA 2011 stuff and keeping these. Free 4790K + MVIIF vs. 500 euro in 3930K + RIVF? Not so hard call. :)

    Sexy as fuck!

    Now you need to put the CPU and that Kingpin on water cooling.

    I change hardware more often than socks.
    It literally wouldn't even get wet before I would have to drain the loop! Kingpin is one mad overclocker even with stock cooler. Was benching for a moment at 1400 MHz GPU. On air. Currently stock cooling first on HWBOT Fire Strike. :)

    Well hello there Mr. Haswell-E... ;)

    At stock its quiet although very much audible. Shouldn't be any problem to anyone. Under more OC it starts to get pretty loud fast. Definitely not the best cooler out there, but its OK.

    Compared to lets say stock cooler of R9 290X its like whisper in the forest. Very pleasant air flow sound mostly.

    lol :p thanky you man !

    Yes with this case, I want to mount a 3x120mm radiator with fans on top only push config.

    The fan controller can power a maximum of 3 fans the rest of the fans PWM is connected to the motherboard.

    I already have the waterblock for the CPU (Black Nickel Heatkiller Rev 3.0), the pump (Phobya 260) and the red hose (13/10mm), radiator si the Phobya g-changer 360 v.2.

    I just have to decide what to order for the GPU waterblock.

    The water will be the normal distilled water, I want to avoid deposits or stains on waterblocks.

    Then you'll see the location of the pump and how to mount the radiator ecc...

    I will update with more photos here. :toast:



    Thank you PACMAN ! Happy to help you !


    To everybody help me wich waterblock to get for the GTX 780 ti :D

    Consider :

    The GPU waterblock will be not visible
    I will use distilled water
    All of them performs the same only aestetics changes.
    I can mount a backplate to all

    Wow with that glass panel...That is beyond beautiful! I really like that case, might I inquire as to what it is because I am not familiar with it.

    you make me want to take a 904 ... awwww i love those cases from InWin .... the 90X serie and specially the Tòu but the last one is a bit ... over expensive... bahahah
    very creative way to put a fan controller btw... :D

    hint on next week upgrade : I K Z A.
    take a guess!


    edit, sunny side up: where i live and the R9 290 is listed at or under 770 prices ... and all my retailer show it... meanwhile the 280X is listed on par with the 760 prices ... woohoo (nV should really lower price now ... specially with the "soon to be here" 880)

    Recently was given an old Dell that had a Q6600 GO and decided to build a cruncher from parts I had. The old test bench has been stashed away for a couple years and needed to have the dust blown off:)

    I want to thank @newtekie1 for the EVGA 750i SLI FTW motherboard I bought from him. It is like brand new!!!
    The Noctua NH-D14 is battle and bruised as it has been on many different build since I bought it in 2009. I am really glad that the mounting gear I used for the LGA 1366 platform is the same as the LGA 775:toast:
    Well time to get her overclocked and then crunching:)

    Looks like 3.4 GHz is where this CPU will end up. Not bad:)

    Just bought this the Shoe Box.
    IMG_0808.JPG
    Finally got proper storage for it, rather than the 16GB USB stick it's been running off. Power supply and HDD and it will be finished for now. And then on to next one. Got the idea that I might get this one. http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Q1900DC-ITX/

    Going to order a Carbide 300r, i think. My Antec One is too small for the cooler inside... Also, 79 degrees on an AMD FX-8350 is what it took for me to realize HPC was on. Poor thing. Oh well, might go water sometime.

    PS: Updated to windows 8.1 on all my machines. LOADS faster on the i3(which is why i decided to install it here too), LOADS slower on this. Hm. Might wanna muck around with it some more.

    Got a 7970 from a guy on here, does around 1250-1300/1850+ on air. Also flashed it to a R9 280x, not as performing and gets hotter than before. May go solder the LN2 pads and see what it can really do! (edit: reverted bios)
