    Socket 2011 ??? Where have the CPU's gone?

    I still only see two processor options for socket 2011. And of course the I7-3930K has been out of stock for weeks now, go figure right. So I was wondering if anyone could fill me in on when Intel plans on releasing some more socket 2011 CPU options? I have been so busy, I haven't had the time...

    Oh So Uncertain....

    Maybe a few can chime in on my dilemma. I have done plenty of custom mods for PC. I also own a newer Mac Book Pro. I am into Photoshop and Video Editing just as much as gaming. Where my problem lies is, do I buy the i7 27" iMac, which will limit my pc gaming options. Or do I just build a...

    Some Thoughts and Feedback on New Design

    Well think I figured out how to light the square rod at the ends without interfering with the bolts that will hold the face and rear of the case on. Basically what I had to do, we drill a hole in the end just wide enough to except the whole led. Then I made the depth deep enough for the LED...

    Post your workstations 2011

    Well here is my work in progress man cave / workstation / get away from the woman place:) Just moved everything last week, consolidated 2 rooms, and moved into a bigger room. But you can see the modding station :D and the desktop area and then some of the other goodies if you can spot them...

    Some Thoughts and Feedback on New Design

    Gonna make an acrylic ATX tray and secure it either by metric screws, or cut notches out of the frame so it slides in and out. Building the frame right now, so I can mock some stuff up. So when I get to the mobo tray I will decide. Yeah the cylinders are 60mm OD by 200mm Koolance reservoirs...

    Some Thoughts and Feedback on New Design

    The fans on the rads will be exhaust, one 120 on the front for intake, and then vents in the rear of the case and probably a 120 fan for intake in the rear.And I must adfmit I liked this design myself. Its funny how the design started out as a tower scratch build and now evolved into a cube with...

    Some Thoughts and Feedback on New Design

    yeah its gonna be water cooled, from the photos you can barely see the two monster SR-1 360 rads. I am also running to PMP-450 pumps and base reservoir combo from Koolance, they will be in series. As I don't want two separate water circuits. But I am going to have a rad inline between the CPU...

    Some Thoughts and Feedback on New Design

    Thanks, I am eager to start. Just feel there is just a few design elements missing. I just feel I need to add a little more, the design is almost at the edge, just need a few more details to send it over the edge. It still just looks like a PC cube, if you know what I mean. Edit: Photo design...

    Some Thoughts and Feedback on New Design

    Its not a finished design, still working it all out. I have been through a few different models. And this one I am going to show you today, is so far, my favorite. Now this will be a scratch build using varies different materials. But for the most part its gonna be a lot of acrylic sheet, rod...

    Looking For Case Design Feedback...

    I am still trying to figure out a way to do this, any ideas let me know. I was thinking I could install a few HDD docking stations just under the cover of the case, so that I could easily slide bare drives in a slot throught the case and into the docking station. Something like 2 of these...

    120mm WC fan choice?

    Thats what I was shooting for was low noise, doesn't have to be completely silent but quiet, since I plan on using the SR-1 rads, I want to find the sweet spot for cooling performance versus decibels. And I can paint and even install my own LED's if necessary. I will check out the others...

    Koolance COV-RP400 Pump and Res Combination ?

    Well I would think you could install it horizontal if you attach a tube and fill port to the top of the res like I did. But with an 800D case why would you? Just get a nice long 200mm res for it, and you can mount it vertically and either mount it right to the top of the case so you can fill it...

    120mm WC fan choice?

    So getting ready to finish up the design for my next build, which is going to be a scratch build. But I am putting in two Black Ice SR-1 360 radiators, and looks like I am down to two fans. 1. Enermax Magma Twister 120mm $16.95 2. Cooler Master Sickle Flow 120mm $10.99 3. Spire 120mm...

    Koolance COV-RP400 Pump and Res Combination ?

    I did purchase the Koolance PMP 450, Koolance COV-RP450 with a 60mm ODx80mm Res. Man what an awesome product it was so easy to install, reduce tubing clutter, made it ever so easy to fill the system and looks simply amazing. Feel free to check out my project log here Started designing my next...

    Looking For Case Design Feedback...

    I see what you mean now.... It could be done. Not sure what if any this design could offer to the build, but I am gonna look into it. I was gonna run a raid 5 withh HDD's and then run two SSD's one for OS and the other for certain games and applications. I orginally wanted to set the HDD's in...
