Its a Asus Z9PE-D8 with a pair of 12 core ivy bridge xeons, a Gigabyte 1080 and a MSI 1070Ti. Its my main folding rig and is now in a HAF X for more airflow, plan to add a 1080ti in a couple of months and retire the 1070 and 1050Ti in the corsair 200R below it with a TR2 cpu only build. Over to the right you can just see part of my daily driver.

Once the the weather cools i'll put the xeon's to use.

Whats everyone using to cool their TR chips? I've got an Enermax TR4 360 AIO on my daily driver but i'm not wanting to spend that if i can avoid it. Will a Noctua aircooler cut it given that the ambient temp in the room is usually 25 deg C or more with no A/C and are you pizza boxing them or using cases?

I am using the Noctua NH-U14S with a second 140mm fan added on all three of my TR 1950X's, since I prefer the simplicity and reliability of air over water on my dedicated crunchers. I am currently just running stock speeds at ~74 deg F ambient and the Noctuas are keeping my TR's at ~140 deg F with all threads running and the 1070ti in each box also crunching. You should be fine at stock speeds and even higher if you can keep the core volts down. For example, I have run mine at 3.6@1.1V and temps only went up a degree or two. I have all of mine in cases with good ariflow (Corsair 750D Airflows).

How are you keeping them 14 degrees F below ambient temp?! That's impressive.

Hah, that’s what I get for trying to respond quickly. I neglected to convert from C to F. I fixed my original post.

Two new laptops that I wasn't going to use until Skillz told me to run them on GxG.

Finally got a proper frame to put my 280x cards in and it had some room so i got another one... Total power draw is 740W at the wall with 2 x 280 , 2 x 280x, R7 1700@ 3.6 running MW@home and WCG
All GPU are -20 power target in afterburner

That PSU hanging out up top is only temporary until i get a couple of extensions for my PCIx power cables

lobstar, what DC projects are you running with this rig?
I've only ever done F@H a long time ago (until last week my score was 181 for team 33 ...). I've been talking to skylaar24 about getting BOINC setup for the formula thing. Probably will throw some time at that this weekend.

I like it. The paper towel holder is a nice touch! Is that for potential leaks or um.... other frequent cleanup needs? :D :LOL:

Its my first custom loop so I put that there after I moved the rig to my desk as the EKWB Torque 90s leak a couple drops of liquid if they have any angular pressure on them.
