Found some time today to cleanup the Asus 5790.

Temporary on an Asus EN210 till the other hardware comes, who needs WC :p




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.




Bling !










Bling Bling!
















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 :p

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 :p




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.













And done.






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 :)




Hmm..




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 :)

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.:D

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 :p




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.

Thanks !

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







Lets unpack.







Nice and small, 4cm shorter then an AX1200.










Plenty of cables :)




So want to thank Cooler Master Netherlands for the nice stuff !!

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 :D
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.

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!

Thanks !

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 :p


The plex.
(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




The Q-Plex :)







And the ...ehm ..cupholder :)



Still goin to polish them some more later.
