I need to figure out how to mod my NZXT Vulcan to accept a 120MM fan in the rear.
I plea the 5th "F-I-F".... no further comment.
Today was the day....
Testing it still works!!
Temps look ok to me for stock!
I have been sh***ng bricks most of the afternoon about turning this thing on and bloody hell I'm so glad its over!! :lol:
Everything is running at stock for the moment. I just would like to get my bearings a bit as its been nearly 4 months I think, since I have turned this on so I'm gonna get used to it first!! :lol: I've got to put the top back on and take off all the brown protective paper but there she is, finished
Thanks ..'Ant'.. Very clean rig bro! I like this case a lot, they are a bit to pricey right now, but if there is a good sale on a 650D I'll be all over it.
Kick ass job with that rig Phill.
Thank you Its certainly taken its time.. I first bought it back in June 2009.. I've only just been able to finally get it together just how I want it, even though there are a few teething problems with the case, I'm hoping to have it all sorted out very soon
I just hope my graphics cards turn up soon
What problems are you having? And as far as build time, patience has certainly paid off with this build.
Very nice pics. I know exactly how you felt. Was very nervous when i did my first real water cooling a few moths ago. Very relieved when it was done.
I just couldnt get Windows to boot from my adaptec array, I think it was some setting in the bios that was stopping me do it but its all sorted now
Its a shame the arrays take so long to startup, it would be a nice quick speed otherwise
Its not the first water cooling I've done which is a good thing because I would be literally shi&&ing my pants with this hardware!! I've had it that long I never thought I'd ever get anywhere with it!! Its a shame I have to wait for new graphics cards, but its not the end of the world
I have enjoyed building the rig, I just wish it hadnt of taken so long!!
Ah well, you got it sorted out, so hopefully smooth sailing from now on.
Yes, well this is a hobby that is ultimately satisfying after long periods of doubt and anxiety.
Glad you got it going. Nice job!
Seems to be running fine now I have my Raid 0 for Windows 7 and I have Raid 0 for my games I've also got a 1.5Tb drive in there for screen shots and crap but I dont know how much use that will get I cant wait till the new cards arrive
Well it will be when I get things sorted I have a few issues with the case at the moment and I need to make sure that everything else is alright too Overclocking will be my biggest hurdle, as I cant remember how to overclock an i7 for love nor money!! :lol:
Roll on when the 762 build gets finished
Great rig Phill. I love the sheer size of that case!!
And its still too damn small!! Cable management is going to be a bitch!! :lol:
Amazing work, and nice temps.
Thank you for the comment There's still a bit left but I'm not giving up just yet!!
Any tips please dont hesitate to drop me a line!!

What cards did you order?
This is the somewhat new one, Reusing my old Antec900 case, painted inside black and new parts, decided to go with another 6870 but one that was quieter. Hope its ok to post this many pics, if not let me know ill take out ones that dont matter. these are parts i recieved today.
I ordered two 3Gb 580's so I can put one in each machine for now. I was very tempted to order six but sense took over as I thought why buy six great cards now when in a few months the new 6 series will be out. So when they are I'm going to take a serious look at them and see what ATI has to offer at the time.. I'll get whatever is best for the single screen games and the triple screen games. The new three or four cards can go in the 762 board and the two 3Gb cards can go with the one above...
Should be fun I think
Boneface, once you throw in a 2nd 6870, you'll be good to go ^^
I had 2 before as in last night lol, just needed the cash for something else and bought this 6870 lol
An iMac is a hell of a lot more affordable than buying a new house.
Sorry you don't like it, but all-in-ones are a valid market segment, and iMacs happen to have the best panels in said segment, and are priced fairly for that feature compared to the Tn equipped all-in-ones with the same power and features.
Your arguments against just aren't valid.
Looking good mate Please post up some results if you do any testing
If lack of affordability is "just isn't valid" I'd love to know what a legitimate complaint would be, way to be butt hurt.
