Been silent here for a while. But now I can show the long road to my CEP2 cruncher's completion.
It all started nice and cheap based around a FX-8320E.

Upgraded with a NH-L9x65 cooler.(Which in hindsight was a quite optimistic choice.)
IMG_1465.JPG
It did actually hold up at stock, but overclocking was out of the picture. Managed to hold WCG at 3,3GHz.
Quickly upgraded to a NH-U9S, which helped me push to 3,9GHz.

The temps were still a cause for concern, so when I decided to dump it into a case, yet another cooler upgrade took place.

The fans by the motherboard were my solution to cooling the VRM. Through struggles with fan speeds and noise, and resulting temps, I ended up deciding that the motherboard wasn't up to the task. Wanted better fan control and beefier VRM.
Meant ditching integrated graphics, so got a small dedicated for the job.

The final result with the ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA finally had me satisfied.(After I put a fan on the northbridge.)

Thread revival time! Let's see some more picks of what everyone is running. :rockout::rockout:

I've been wanting to move my swiftech cooler to the front of my case but the tubing wasn't long enough. Going with the black/white theme of my X99 deluxe, I bought some white tubing. Also, I got a great deal on a set of dominator ram with white led's and with the the white fans from my fractal case, I'm all in for the black and white theme. I even set the rgb on my 470 strix to white. I'm not much for the led lighting, but I think this looks pretty good.

Flash pic.



Tried to get the lighting to show but this pic doesn't really do it justice.



Here's my Xeon 2683v3 14 core 28 thread cruncher. sitting on a shelf.



Last is the Xeon 2658v3 12 core 24 thread in a dusty old corsair case. :D

Out left is Shit. In the stack is from bottom to top: Server, CEP2, Mikkel, Little Server, Shoe and No Power. And the black tower on the right is Foldy.

Running WCG is Shit with a N3150, CEP2 with a FX-8320E, Little server with a G3258, Shoe with an Athlon 5350 and No Power with a J3455. Foldy is on and of folding, depending on the heat right now.

Expanded my Swiftech cooler on my main rig this weekend. Added a 360 rad and micro-res. Hard to see the new rad in the pic, its fairly tight at the top of this case. It's overkill I know for just a cpu but these X99 chips run pretty hot when you overclock them. Really happy with the upgrade, I'm able to run the pump at 2000 rpm and all the fans at 7v. You can't even tell if its on until you get right up next to it now. :D

Temps are great too, low to mid 60's crunching away at 4.4ghz.
