I tried rotating my heatsinks that way but it ended up not making much difference because they were just sucking the hot exhaust air from the gpu. If you have a blower style gpu it might be better though

I think Supermicro makes some good dual LGA 1366 boards too but I've never used them personally.
They do, i own a few of them, another dual socket i use too is Tyan, the s7012/s7010 are a good one the s7025 even better but it's expensive.

What weird about the asus p5q premium if i had the graphic card in x16 lane it crashes alot not in x4 turned out the vdimm is low as i have 4 dimms populated i had to crank up the vdimm to 2.30v in order in play dirt 2.0 while using x16 lane i have to meature the vdimm with a dmm to see what going on there it bouncing about 2.358v to 2.360v according to the dmm as the heatsinks on are not getting hot at all as it been cooled by an xbox 360 fans. I will let the dirt 2.0 replay run for a for while to see if it crashes when it get warm..

I know the ram is rated for 2 0v to 2.10v but with the asus p5q premium is pumping in 2.360v i dont think the ram is getting enough voltage if i set anything below 2.30v in bios. Would be nice if gskill gave a voltage read point on the actual ram voltage controller that way we know what the ram voltage is doing than rather double guessing....

This is my ever evolving Frankenstein in its' current form...yes I have 2 rads I just hooked up the 2nd big one you see on the floor last night. It's a huge case by Rosewill and even still I'm struggling to see ways to get both rads in there and side panel on. If y'all are interested I can tell you bit more about the parts and pieces and how it came "together" although obviously it's like a classic car being restored it's not inspectable and roadworthy yet lol.

Mount both Radiators internally at the front. 240 first in the drive cage, then 360 behind the drive cage.

That just made me cringe looking at the the mess of cable management i wonder how the airflow is affected while the side covers is on lol

That's a good idea I see all that space and I use none of it for the tiny 1 SSD drive I have.

One reason the side cover isn't on is just due to I'm not great with cable management and case doesn't really have a system that would help much....besides I haven't even tried to manage the cables yet lol. At this point I'm just trying to get it all working as I'd like and once I figure out how the layout will be for sure I'll worry more about cleaning up the cables.

It would be a nice feature if all motherboards had the atx, cpu, and fans connectors on the back of the board as it be alot easier to manage the cables :)

yes correct; I mean an nvme driver installed on a pcie card. I'm asking because I have read something on internet; it seems to work, but not simply "out of the box"

It depends on the configuration. If you have an M.2 SATA drive, plug & play and bootable. If M.2 NVMe, then you need a PCIe card with a boot rom.

I used this card to boot from a Kingston Predator SSD on my X79 build a while ago. You would probably need something similar to this (this one might work for X58 too but I'm not sure)
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017JGVTAM/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
That card is only "M" slot and does not have M.2 SATA, which for X58 is needed. The card listed above, can do both "M" and "B" slots, the "B" slot being bootable with a SATA cable connected.

The following also work well;

I have successfully mounted everything in the PC, had to do it with big 420 rad on top and 220 or whatever it is on front of drive cage. Any other way required a fair amount of cutting OR the water connections wouldn't reach or both. So that was easiest way that actually worked. Topped up the radiator and got 2-3 runs of LinX to pass with 10 gigs ram (out of 16) but on 3rd or 4th run it farted out.

Max temp was 85 on one core so that's diddly squat can't ask for much better than that. Anyway about to take picture of configuration but hoses /wires etc not ideal so it's not like the "before" picture but it's not the after either, I mainly just wanted to make sure it was hooked up right and everything worked properly, which it does. I just have to unfortunately rearrange the hoses and disconnect at least one because in maneuvering it all around and trying to get it to fit they are not in ideal positions.
0323192030.jpg


The front radiator with all the wires around it is just where all the fan connections landed for the moment as people pointed out with all the fan hookups in front of case plus working around big ATX plug and my gtx 1080ti which is a big long card it makes it fairly hard to get anything plugged in and neat, however the back of the case as well as the top where the big rad is looks pretty good minus the one hose that somehow ended up over the other, which it wasn't when I started but I moved it around and flipped it every which way and sadly I can't put that little rad in front of the cage because as it is it just literally barely makes it to hook up to the big rad on top, and if I put big rad hoses in front they are too long and that glowing pump is right in way of where the hoses from big rad would be.

Anyway work in progress let me know if you guys have any ideas for improvements aesthetically as well as performance-wise, I'm a noob with watercooling been doing air coolers for 15 years till couple years ago when I got my first AIO.
Capture861.jpg

This was my latest attempt at 4.7 with 2438 mhz memory using 9.5 gb. The loop is keeping cores well under control with heat so will play with few voltages as well as try with memory at 1833 or something to see if it's just the combo of memory controller stressed with 4.7 ghz is just a bit much. However first time I've ever got this thing to pass a single run with almost 10 gigs of memory and 4.7 ghz. Prior best was using only 4 gigs of memory and even with that it ran considerably warmer. I only have fans on one side of each rad so I may put a couple for push/pull on one or both rads temporarily just to see if that nets me any significant cooling and headroom. More to come.
