Excessive Insanity 4 computers in a Case Labs TX10-D
Sponsored by EK Water Blocks


I am going to finally build my dream computer. I have built a lot of computers and servers both air and water cooled but never really built exactly what I want. This time I am going to build
Exactly what I want. Eddy with EKWB has been kind enough to sponsor some Radiators for this build.. This Build will have 2 Computers and 2 Servers in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Every thing will be water cooled and the Main PC will have a 6 to 12 stage TEC water chiller controlled by a AQ5…

HD4000 graphics are plenty for any HTPC usage.

Isn't 1500w and 1200w really overkill for each system? Wouldn't 1000w cover the gaming system and 500w be enough for the file server? I may be underestimating the load overclocking can put on a PSU, but the sever is just a CPU and a bunch of drives.
