The plan is indeed to use dual 5090 FE

I really like the whole look and feel of the case, equipment and etc. I like how you moved the PSU to the back side and etc.

Nice work!!!

Thank you, it also counterbalances the video card and cpus heatsink weight on the other side

I did notice that, and it kept it from bulking on the front side. Visually, the layout is balanced.

Did you ever consider water-cooling your items?

Did you do all the mods yourself?

I did in fact consider water cooling it, but was bale to get same or better temps with this air cool set up. Back in 1998 i was one of the first to watercool, over the years I found scenarios where watercooling was an advantage and scenarios where it was not. In this use case, it did not pose an advantage

some early prehistoric PC builds as early as 25 years ago and one from 10 years ago

there might be more build info at this thread

Thank you for sharing. I agree that air and water both have advantages. Personally, I prefer using water to cool my space. The hot air from the air conditioning doesn't work well in my office. Even with water cooling, my computer still heats up the room, but the system is not noisy. My fans run at 800 rpm with dual rads, and they work effectively.

Thank you for sharing; I love the throwback!!!

What made you consider this case?

The choice of case was based on familiarity and a sense of air cooling space

I like the thermaltake P1 and P3 cases for dual GPU and dual CPU, but they still have to be heavily modded

There’s a few pics of those other builds I did on those case types at

Thanks!

I checked the specs. The P-Pro case does not hold the 12x13 board. But I saw where your motherboard overlaps the fan slot to make your dual CPU board work.

Nice work, first class!!!!
