go batman go!
Ur gonna be pretty happy with those.
this thing is gonna look perfect i matched every single part every part black and red if the part was not the right color i made it the right color
alright mobo and psu are here and in also there is a shot or 2 of the cable sleeving
special thanks to MKmods for showing me where to get the sleeving saved me a lot of money
This going to be an awesome case when it's finished. the paint job looks great too, keep up the good work. My friend and I are going to be starting a Cosmo S build in the next couple weeks! This is very exciting.
its actually powder coat on the inside and it did turn out great im spending time sleeving all my cables gonna take me a while since i got like 1 hour of free time a day or less depends on if i want sleep since i work 16hours so its going together just taking a bit of time works been making me feel like lol
im amazed how well the parts match
i saw how the 5770 matched your bloodrage perfect and i had to get them i didn't have the money or time to wait for 5850 or 5870 and i wanted the crossfire look its kinda beast looking they perform great for me
im using them right now in my other p55 rig here is a pic of them
Now that's a proper setup right there, a solid inch and a half between cards. Some mobo manufacturers only give you a centimeter between them. :shadedshu
the foxconn only has a 1/8 inch maybe a tiny more but it will look good and when i decide i need to empty my bank acct again ill go liquid on the whole rig
Blast i shoulda got that board. It looks fuckin sweet.
looks even better in person i hate how pictures dont make things look as good as they do in real life because standing in front of this thing is amazing
alright here is another update i have everything else ordered for the build and it should all arrive next week i needed a few more things cant wait for all my fans to arrive and so i can build it up more i ordered all black screws to lol
Pics don't show up?
Regardless, everything else so far looks great! I feel so ashamed of my computer sitting on the desk without a case now
last pics i posted were of my 5770 in the other p55
Alright here is a nice update mocking it all up put in the 5770 and made the 6 pins and its looking amazing im actually really impressed how well it well works together here is some pics
alright i have not much time lightly but here is the 24pin all done up and im geting there idk why but in pics u can see the color of the wires but in real life u cant i think its the flash or something
That looks really good, although I can't say that I like how far the cable management holes are from the mobo on that case. I know you most likely don't want to cut up your new nice case, but I think it'd be nice to cut holes where I outlined them on the pic. Then, your 24-pin and PCIe connectors would have less distance to travel, you could route the front panel connections straight up, and you could route the SATA connections through the hole beside them and have them come out of the already cut one. You could even put some red grommet around the newly cut holes and original holes for extra flare.
Edit: Eh, I don't know if that'd be such a good idea. You'd have no way to secure the PSU cables besides tape or something, with the holes where they're at now you can use the little cable tie places to secure the cables.
i was going to but that i was like while i am spending like days making the cables they are messy/clean give a cook sifi cable everyplace look but still really clean thats why i did not cut holes
i thought that through a lot before i powder coated it but i did sooo much cable work need to shot off some of it lol
also like i said in person the cables honestly are 100% black so it looks super great i know in the pics color shines through but in real life the are 100% black and look amazing
alright been a while since a update and ive changed things around a bit and ive been all over that why no updates (see if u can find what changed ) i put in 2 hotswops and dvd rom and drives and finished cables see if u can spot the big difference
alright here is another update
FINALLY UP AND RUNNING
switched out some stuff
traded or sold:
g skill ripjaws
and put in:
asus rampage 2 extreme
gskill trident 2000mhz
still need to sleeve the mosfet fan change out cpu cooler (coolermaster 212 was great on i5 not so much on i7) get case fans and sleeve all those to and maybe a fan controller
FYI im looking for stock coolermaster black fans 120mm this case came with 2 i need 4 more just the standard black 44cmf 120mm they come with the cosmos or 922 and many other CM cases so if any of u have a few laying around ill pick them up if the price is right i can get a 4 pack on the egg for 15+5shipping so if u got some to help me finish up let me know
alright heres a update i finally filled her up with fans and got a nice set of ram
3 top 120mm fans
1 back 120mm fan
1 bottom 120mm fan
3x2gb of G.Skill Trident 2000mhz
heres some pics
only thing left i want a better cpu cooler and maybe some aftermarket vga cooling and more hard drives
IIRC EK makes some black and red waterblocks for those vid cards. Maybe do some watercooling with black tubing?
water cooling is my next big step once i have the cash to put it together how i want thinking about a dual loop with that xspc res with dual pumps one loop cpu and NB and one loop video cards its just i need to save up the case to put it all together heres a list of what ill need
1: 120.3 rad
2: xspc dual pump res
3: 2 swiftech mcp355's
4: 2 universal GPU blocks (so i can change them later to diff cards)
5: black tubing
6: heatkiller 1366 block
7: 1/2 fittings on all of it
8: 2 thick single rads for the vga loop
9: quick disconnects on the vga so i can change them around easy
10: some kind of NB block for the asus rampage 2 extreme
once i have the $ for all that ill go liquid im gonna go for it when i got the $ to do it all 100% how i want it so i dont have to change it later
Someone had one of these in the FS forum, but I can't find it?
ive seen it it has 1 dead pump and 1 good one just dont have the $ for the loop ATM just waiting until i have like 400$ than ill pick it all up at once unless i find some $ all the sudden than ill do it now
A dual loop may be a bit overkill for your setup. The 5770s don't make that much heat and since you would only have 4 blocks two pumps is a bit extreme.
A decent 120.3 rad and a 120.1 at the back or bottom of the case would be sufficient.
Just make sure you get thicker rads from EK, Feser, Thermochill or similar. The Swiftech rads would work but the temps would be a bit higher.
I know that EK and swiftech make single waterblocks that bolt right onto the existing heatsink of the Rampage board you have.
If it were me I would start with a single loop to see what temps are like and I would decide on a dual loop from there. That way you won't have to fork out as much money in one go to find out that it is a bit overkill.
Not that there is anything wrong with overkill, its just a big jump to go from no watercooling to a complex dual loop setup.
