If you build it (well), they will come.
Found some time today to cleanup the Asus 5790.
Temporary on an Asus EN210 till the other hardware comes, who needs WC
After that it was time to get the third screen hanging
2 hours of measuring, fitting, mounting, unmounting and everything again
After 3 weeks of mailing with Asus, Highflow and EKWB, finally some pics for you guys.
After building this in im ready with the hardware part, and hope to finally enjoy a game
Off course it still needs to be powdercoated in mat black in the comming weeks/months.
I hope to finish off this project then.
I specially want to thank :
This because they did a very nice sponsoring.
Without Highflow i could never made this SLI dream true.
Freddy en colleagues thanks !
For the Asus Rampage III Extreme i won in the Asus Pride contest.
And for the Asus GTX480 i could use to order some other Asus cards @ Highflow
Milan en colleagues thanks !
This because he's sending me a very nice package for the second time this month.
Im totally in love with the EK Plexi blocks !
Gregor and colleagues thanks !
(Thinking about marrying Freddy, Milan en Gregor)
Planned to do a lot, but i just kept staring
Totally in love with the Asus GTX580
Thinking to place them in a rack like samurai swords
One can't live without the other..
Pretty big plates
Replacing the standard red top with a black one.
Nicest block i had till now
Can't wait to mount them
Playing with the Lamptron UV-active Slot Protectors
And some stuff to put the cards in SLI.
Also some extra BP parts can be quite handy.
To clean up the dirty little chips.
More pics will follow, i hope you enjoyed them
SEXY SEXY SEXY.... I so want to get my 5850s sold so I can get two 580s and EK blocks.
Cant wait to see those up and running
Here some pictures of the conversion.
First of all, thanks again Highflow, EKWB en Asus !
Even on air they are lovely.
But i love WC blocks
You can easily spend a hole evening on 2 cards.
And thats 1
And thats 2
Had a small break, had to wait for a replacement part for the EK rex3 block (broke while shipping)
And i've been to Cebit to personally thank one of my sponsors
Replacement part came in the next morning
Quite an impressive block, it has 4 O-rings in it
And now the adjustments for the bigger mainboard and the extra needed cables for the gpu's
Had to do everything by hand cause i didnt want to clear the hole desk
Also the mainboard tray needed some work.
Discs specially aluminum.
Now i can start fitting in the Bitspower parts
Every SLI connector has to fit exactly.
One of the many times fitting it in the desk.
Only one connector to go.
Got the tip to polish the silvercoil
But it's shiny again
Cable for the extra molex on the Rex3.
After one hour i finally found a way to get all the cables under the mainboardtray
And some teasers for later this week
When looking for the newest bios for the rex3, i also found a driver for symbian phones.
I had no idea this was so easy
This build continues to get more awesome all the time. Got any old parts you can send me? You'll be my first sponsor.
I don't have any old parts at all
Cleared some 230V cables for the tft's today.
Made a 3-way disconnect-able cable ^^
3 AMP connectors.
Still need to fix the resolutions so the conversion looks better
I almost enjoy the view like in real life
Bought something second hand.
Saw it and just had to have it
But still no clue what to do with it
I did the same thing, except I used a small project box from Radio Shack and mounted the box to the pole on the triple monitor stand.
They say great minds think alike.
Haha well it's a very simple logical mod, but it has to come up in your mind
And again thanks to Highflow.nl for the nice stuff !
Some molex cables, you'll need them with a 1.50m long pc
Will be used for a later update
Time for a refreshment after 2 years of usage in 2 builds
And the thing missing in this build ... a mouse with acid green leds
Thanks again Freddy !!
Received the last 4 fans today (Thanks Kier ! )
Will try to replace the old Gentle typhoons tomorrow.
I will have to lift the complete desk out of its holder to replace the right fans.
I'm totally in love with the green color the nanoxia fans get with UV light.
Again 4 hours of non-stop work
How i replaced the old Feser coolant.
And put the cards back to slot 1 and 2 so i can better access my raidcard.
And already replaced 3 of the 6 fans.
Better pics next week
very nice... as always
man this is an epic build, i hope it goes on and you can always improve it.
Well it's right below me for the next few years, so i guess i will
this is an awesome awesome build!
That is hands down one of the best mods I've seen. Great work.
Asked Cooler Master NL if they could help me out with a little test project cause of a voltage problem with the raidcard.
They did, and within 4 days i got this package trough my mailbox
Maybe im going to use 2 x 700W instead of 1x1200W
Nice and small, 4cm shorter then an AX1200.
Plenty of cables
So want to thank Cooler Master Netherlands for the nice stuff !!
cooler master is a good brand thats very cool of them to send you the psus, but whats up with the hyper 212+ they sent it as a gift?
It's for an other pc, also a present
Been playing with a lot of stuff this weekend
First a little movie of the Coolant refresh
And the testing with the 2 (3) PSU's
Total of 2600W running now.
And off course my 3.3V 5V and 12V are superb now
Very silent psu's by the way !
Even under full stress
980x @ 4.5 Ghz + 2 x GTX580 @ 960/1150
And creativity with Bitspower on a Sunday afternoon
It was to see the effect of flowing Acid green right under UV leds in the desk.
(For further plans )
And made a small movie of it.
(Translation: HOLY CRAP THAT'S AMAZING!!!)
lol +1 yeah its awesome one day ill never do this
3 screens ARE useful
Getting the kid started early, huh?
Fucking hell that's glorious dude. Love what you did with that res.
I always wanted to do something similar to your project. Don't have the time, energy or tools to carry it out. The frosted dark glass top would have been nice... where if you turn off your UV the dark would hide all your components. Also instead bolt to the stud of the wall, I would make it into a table with legs on wheels. Those are the upgrade that I would do if i were to do them. Awesome work!
And Thanks Freddy !
After the mouse i was looking for a fitting mousepad for the desk.
Personally i like cloth pads like the Q-pad.
Couldn't find anything at all.
All i could find was a pad with leds in it.
But then the idea popped up ..
Still had some plexi somewhere, and there are 150 UV smd leds in my desk so why not try it
(Fits perfectly !)
The "hard" SLI connector. (Thanks Xtrafresh!)
And my RVS cupholder
With a jigsaw.
Maybe im going to let the print melt down into the plexi with its pins
And the ...ehm ..cupholder
Still goin to polish them some more later.
wow bro, not only are you making the table but you are making accessories for it as well! Nifty!
I could sell my Intel X18-M for a good price, so wanted to try the Intel 510.
Going to use it as OS drive
And because i promised Asus to show their logo, here you go
It must be a real pain in the @$$ to work on, but it really is something special you've created there!!! Great work!!
wow nice job!
how much did you sell your ssd for? what gen was it?
This build will never end!
Great job dude!
Sold the 2nd gen ssd for 200 euro's, why ?
@ Rossi~ : I guess it won't Thanks !
