    Wow, I remember when 4890 CF was pretty much the only thing that could maintain 30+ fps in Crysis @ 1080p at max settings. That's a classic rig :P

    Thanks for the kind words, guys.

    Yes, the motherboard is very narrow. I'm not sure why, though. I am weighing options on how to change the white on the side panel. I'm looking at a thin, adhesive black foam panel instead of paint. It'd be nice to add a little sound deadening to the case if possible.

    I built this rig in May of this year. I have been piecing parts together since May of last year, when I bought that H50 on clearance for $20. I got the 4890's from New Egg brand new for $75/piece on Black Friday.

    Some of the parts are old tech, but they are still running great.

    I've got water blocks coming for the 4890s. Even with all the reviews I read, I never imagined they would be as hot as they are. However, the known fan noise issue was remedied by me right off the bat, so they're not too terrible loud.

    Edit: Here's a shot of the box with the flash on.

    I couldn't quite get the pictures I wanted with the complete absence of light, even with some borrowed light from the house. We haven't connected cables yet, but the loop's been bled and stuff. So we're about done.

    Specs
    i7 3930k
    P7X79 Deluxe
    Corsair Dominator 32GB (4x8GB)
    Corsair Force 3 240GB
    EVGA GTX 680
    Corsair AX 850
    Cooler Master Cosmos II

    We were originally going to install a third radiator in the roof, but I realized post-arrival that the 45mm rad I'd picked wouldn't quite fit in place. Durp. Until we can remedy that, I've gone back on my plan and just gone with two 240mm rads in the bottom... Which are completely unsecured, because goddamnit I can hardly budge them in the first place where they are now.

    Watercooling specs
    EK Supremacy Copper/Plexi
    EK CSQ GTX 680 Copper/Plexi
    MIPS Nickel/POM Asus X79 blocks
    Alphacool D5 Pump Station (bay res+pump)
    Alphacool XT45 240mm x2
    Enzotech compression fittings and adapters
    Primochill Primoflex Pro 1/2" ID tubing

    The tubes on the motherboard are messier than I wanted them to, but I couldn't find a cleaner route. Damned things kinked with what I originally planned, and the alternatives I could think of would largely end up worse looking again. :<

    Can I ask you what the fan at rear is called? and if it's a 140mm?
    Cause I've been looking for 140mm white LED fans and it's rather hard to find a place to buy them in Denmark. I had to look on ebay and amazon to find good ones with a rather low postage price. I've found one now though, but I'm just curious

    The case only fits 120mm in the rear, so it's a 120mm fan. ouo;

    Yep, 120mm.

    It's made by Enermax. The part number is: UCAP12. They make a 140mm version in white (UCAP14), but I can't find it either. I need one to replace the fan in my PSU.

    If you're up for some different colors, they have some very cool 2 and 3 color fans. So far, I really like it. Looks better and is quiter than the Xigmateks I used for my last build.

    Okay thanks!
    And nah, right now I'm going for a black n white theme for my rig I might get 2x120mm white LED fans too for my H100, but I'll wait for that. Not sure if I like that much light :P
    But I'm post pics when I've mounted my 140mm fan in the rear. I actually just got it in the mail today! Hopefully gonna fix it tomorrow

    Weeee pics time

    New stuff:



    Cleanup time! And of course putting the new fans between the radiator and the case top was a pain...



    Taking apart the GTX580...the thermal paste was pretty much powder by this point...



    This thin-ass heatsink ends up eating 3 slots. Grr grr....



    H100 with *proper* fans this time...



    The NZXT 2 meter LED kit in action. Only the front fan is LED, the rest of the light is coming from the wire. And before you say "fucking hell Xuvial that's not a computer, it's a 12-year-olds fantasy of christmas and looks immature as fuck" the kit was set to maximum brightness and the camera makes things 10x brighter than they actually are.



    It does make a rather pleasing silhouette...(again, maximum brightness dammit, leave me alone)



    You can see the LED controller on the far left side. With the side panel on the wires aren't visible, and that's all that matters right

    How're you liking the fans, Xuvial? Running them at low speeds or something?

    Why didnt you get some Anti-kink springs in black u hardly notice them and they are very cheap either way goodjob on the case its looking fine xD but then again Cosmos 2 is prob the best case out there atm nice and big with lots of space and options to take harddrive cases out of the case for extra space

    Not too hot considering SSD's generate zero heat and there's a 200mm fan next to it.
    FYI HDD's last longest when kept between 40-50c (which would be the average temp in my case), not "omg keep it super cool" as so many people mistakenly believe.

    They're damn decent but yeah I'm undervolting them. Even the SP120's get way too loud for my tastes if I run them at full voltage. I wonder how people run 4-5 fans in their cases at full speed (e.g. HAF-X) don't go deaf without a fan controller >_<

    But I seem to have made a mess of the thermal paste. Both GPU and CPU temps went up 5-7c. Fuck gotta do it again...but atleast I'll know how the TIM spread this time.

    Also eeek incoming page 404 :O

    Because I don't have anti-kink springs, and sadly would've had to wait until like, tomorrow, if I was to order them when I was building the loop. As for the Cosmos 2... eh. The fan controller is poor, the space is good, but I've got mixed feelings about a couple of small things that made assembling the waterloop both a PITA and a breeze.

    Reservoir is a dual bayres.
