Thanks for the comment I do love both of my EVGA boards, they are the best i7 boards out there I thought, but that was when I first had them over two years ago.. I'm sure there's something better out there now??
Well I think it'll go a bit higher so I'm aiming for 4.6Ghz if I can!! I ain't giving up on it yet!! Its just all the voltages, the newer SB rigs are apparently much easier to overclock!!
Some nice rigs. I really like 20mmrain's rig.
1 x XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir - w/ Alphacool VPP655 Variable Speed Pump Installed 159.99$
1 x XSPC 360 RAD $72.99
1 x XSPC 240 RAD $55.99
1 x XSPC Raystorm CPU block $62.99
2 x EK Radeon HD 7970 VGA Liquid Cooling Block (Nickel Plated) $124.99
MISC Fittings & Tubing
Case for the water cooling = NZXT Switch 810
Still plan on adding a Motherboard VRM block.
Still waiting on some better fans.... and also a New PSU
Asus P8Z68 V-Pro Gen 3
G.Skill Sniper 1866Mhz 8Gb
Cooler master Silent Pro 1000 watt
Intel X25 SSD
2 x Western Digital 500GB Black Caviar
2x Sapphire HD 7970
Other MISC odds and ends.
Hope this helps you in the right direction.... need any more info on some of the fittings and so on when you order. Just PM me.
Thanks man.... Will take more pics in a few days when I readjust my tubing, New PSU, Sleeving and fans.
Cool, I would love seeing more of it.
I agree!! I look forward to it too!!
Really impressed with that case. Holds a double and triple rads inside. Very cool.
What do you guys think about the cable mangement?
Considering the case doesn't have pre-cut holes that's miles better than anything I would manage. The more straight lines you can manage, the cleaner it will look. My only tip would be to use black zip ties instead of white and hide the head behind the cables to make it cleaner.
Nice build though, and love that graphics card's cooler.
I can see cables? A piece of lexan bent over the area the cables go would do wonders, considering the limitations you are met with.
Well it does have some cut holes, if you look in the last pic i routed the main atx pwr cables and other ones through the back.
But I dont know how people can hide cables such as cold cath lights and the pci slot controllers for them, not to mention all the random small ones
Could you come and sort mine out for me!!??
No money for the GPU waterblock to complete
^^ Haha,well here is a video of the sound activated cold cath lights, I had since removed the 180mm fan on the side panel, because it was getting caught in the cpu heatsink.
Also, heres my sister's rig before it goes to her house... Shes gunna destroy this thing :c
lies. I won't ruin it T.T you're mean
damn it, gtfo
Nice and uncluttered
Now that you have the ECO, you may want to put a fan over the VRM's.... that's the usual secondary function of air cooling the CPU
I have a side fan that should help, and one on the top. Do you guys think I'm covered?
Just keep an eye on the temps and your stability- you may need to get a fan a little closer if either are giving you trouble
How would I check the temps of my VRMs? All that shows up is CPU and HDDS
forgot that I have one of the temp sensors from my fan controller in my VRM heatsink. I'm not sure if there is a temp output for those on your board
CPUID HW monitor shows a mainboard temp on my setup along w/CPU but I think that's for the northbridge?
This is whats left of my computer. new build coming soon...I hope!
amazing how much your mobo looks like mine an M3A32MVP-Deluxe
