    Some of you may have been following this build log over at OCN but I decided I'd share it with everyone here :) before I was mining on a test bench and I decided to get away from all the benches and crazy creations people have been using and move everything into a nice looking rig.

    Project Classy

    The case:

    Base Specs




    Watercooling Equipment:



    Misc
    • Undecided Fan Controller
    • Fans in the works ✔
    • Koolance QDCs
    Back when mining was really profitable I had this idea of wanting to use an Asus Z9PE-D8 WS and mine on the odd coin that came out and was only available for CPU mining, however that idea has been dropped since mining isn't too interesting anymore. The photos are here for you to enjoy though!

    First to go was these pesky things.

    Gone!

    Here's how it was looking, although on a shelf instead of the desk

    Turns out the other side had to go as well :/
    [​IMG]
    Still not quite sliding all the way in...
    [​IMG]
    Silly fan
    [​IMG]
    Ended up turning the rad around so I could fit the tray all the way in and keep the 92mm fans
    [​IMG]

    Then Enermax sent me an additional PSU:

    Platinum for dayz.

    Boxes in boxes.
    [​IMG]
    Tiny compared to the ST1500 monster!

    I love the texture
    [​IMG]
    And the fan! Nice to see something different.

    The LEPA 1600 cables are even higher quality. Very heavy duty with a thick sleeve on them.

    Then lastly after I swapped out the Z9 for an R3BE, to make it a little more "Classier" :)

    *Warning* Turns out I have lots of cleaning to do...
    Dat TJ07

    How will I choose which display output to use D:
    [​IMG]
    PSU 1: Enermax Platimax 600W
    [​IMG]
    PSU 2: LEPA 1600W
