And a box is what you need for 1k radiator space
Yeah seriously! O_O I really want to see pictures of the finished product now that I realize which case he has, plus that many radiators compares to even the greatest of this here forum, Synthaxx, Cyanotical, and even perhaps Ispano. O_o
Why thanks, taking some pics then. Ispano and the lads have systems way better than mine, but cooling wise I might be just below them ^^ Thanks for the praise anyways, will see what I can do about the pictures.
Got a lot done to my rig from the last time I had posted it. On monday I'll be adding an ASUS 5.1 sound card with a headphone amp, and 2 sound activated cold cathodes to it as well, one blue and one green (thinkin of swaping out the ram for some blue or green ones and ditching the red front fan). But the spec's as it stands are as follows.
- Cooler Master HAF X case. Slightly modded, I removed the side panel fan, and cut a new window because I wanted to see my GPUs
- ASUS P8P67 Pro LGA 1155
- Intel i5 2500k clocked to 4.5ghz
- Cooler Master V8 CPU cooler
- Two GTX 560 Ti with MSI Twin Frozer II coolers running
- Two sticks of 4GB G.Skill ram 1600
- Corsair 850w PSU
- ASUS DVD drive
- WD 500gb HDD
- WD 360gb HDD
- Logitech Z506 5.1 speakers
- Three AOC e2343Fk monitors
- Razer Naga
- Razer Anansi
- Razer Nostromo
- Razer Carcharias
Full size images are quite large. I apologize that one of them is sideways, forgot to switch it when I uploaded.
Well the PSU is not gold "rated" but yeah it's colored gold. :P Nice to see a HAF X with that type of side-panel, while I like it, I know how much the side-panel fan can help and I like it. Also since that side of my case faces quite clearly away from me I don't really have a point to do that anymore. (did at one time!)
The triple monitor setup is gorgeous.
Which sound card specifically are you getting? You should also get an SSD. ^_<
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829132020 just an entry level sound card, but I'm not a big audio buff. The only reason I'm even buying it is due to having a gift card chilling in my inbox for 50$. Maybe if I like how this sounds, I'll give it to my girlfriend and then purchase a more expensive one.
And you're right. My PSU is just 80 plus, gold was on the brain for some reason, not sure why.
Here are some pics:
This is what I have for now, I am not entirely pleased with the pinkish hue it has gotten, but I will take it down and get some better clear tubing at a later date. Hope you enjoy my beauty.
The CPU Loop: The pump/res/rad combo is mounted of the back and the hosing is inserted through one of the 80mm fanholes, it goes back into the back compartment to the 2x92mm rad and then to the CPU Block and back to the pump/res/rad combo.
The GPU Loop: The reservoir goes straight down to the pump(don't worry I will attach it with brackets later, broke them and have some new ones on the way), from the pump it goes to the 3x120 RAD, and then from that into the blocks which are in series, then it goes up to the 2x120 rad and then back to the res.
I had a lot of fun building this, and I will have lots more fun with it later.
wooo old school PCI interface sound card! :P
I'm amazed that one has a headphone amp and yet this one doesn't... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=xonar%20dx
Grrr. But anyways, I don't think you'd see too stellar of an increase on sound quality, unless you have some pretty high quality headphones to hear it. Idk, let us know!
As for SSDs, their prices have really been dropping quite significantly lately, you should be able to get one for a pretty decent price!

Looks good ^^. I'm loving that reservoir with the red coolant and turbulence, looks just awesome. Although I'm not a big fan of large cases it would surely be awesome for the sake of sheer joy to build something in that :>.
Hey! I won 2 iphones and was invited to atleast 5 poker games with hot girls during my stayOriginally Posted by DeltrusDisc
Finally got my third monitor arriving soon, Aria had a sale on today where you could 'request' items a week or so ago, dropped my monitor by 10% for me! I can't actually use it yet because I'm too stubborn to buy a set of the new Radeons without knowing what the Kepler cards are like so it will just be sat there blank for a while :P

So I just ran Unigine Heaven 2.5 on my 1080p monitor, didn't do the benchmark test but just had it roll, extreme tessellation and 4x AA... while the fps was painful to watch, I was kind of surprised the GPU never went over 51 Celsius!
Maybe it's because it's about 7F (-13.9 C) outside and I'm in a not so well heated/insulated basement. Though computer is idling at normal temperatures.
