Rinsed out manufacturer residue for both radiators, tear the case apart and put the radiators and fans. The top radiator is an extremely tight fit, but everything fits without any modification at all. The distance between the 90 degree fitting on the top radiator and the IO and the fan is 1 mm lol. Glad I plan it ahead of time carefully.

Holes on top of the case line up perfectly with the Black Ice GTX Extreme Gen 2 420 radiator as well! Now gonna put in motherboard and cpu and start leak testing.

Complete build!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!








Took me 3 days to put them together with lightning effects and cable management... I'm very satisfied!! Video cards are Gigabyte GTX 670 with Aquacomputer water block and EVGA backplate. the XSPC Raystorm Red LED is not as bright as I want to but I guess that will be fine when I turn off the light.

What do you guys think?

That looks really good, really clean. How's it running?

What temps are you hitting? Try prime95 for the CPU and Furmark's 15min burn test for the GPUs. If you're daring, you could run both at the same time...

Temps???

Sorry for the "late" response... Been busy working 50 hours last couple days in the pharmacy, so exhausted when I got home can't do much benching. I do, however, got time to do some quick tweaks to my video cards. Currently got them to work at 1250 core and 7 ghz men furmark stable. Temps are kinda weird... 1st card 36 c full load and 2nd card 39c full load during furmark 1080p preset. Is this normal ?

Haven't got a chance to mess around with CPU yet, currently running at 4.3 ghz @ 1.21vcore @ 45c Intel burn test very high setting. Gonna start messing with CPU this weekend when got more time.

Oh forgot to mention all fans run on silent mode via asus rampage iv extreme fan control and pump speed @ 3 for complete silent rig. Ambient temp is about 26 c.

That's actually really awesome. Congrats!

Your temps are quite good, and yes there will be a difference of a few degrees between the two GPUs. CPU temps are actually very good as well.
July 20, 2012 12:02:37 PM

The water is warmed up a bit by the first card so yeah, the second one would be a bit warmer.

But still... 39c at full blast...

Can you do a close up of your CPU block please? I just got the raystorm block and I wanted to see which way you mounted it, and the way you put your LED's in.

Thank you!

Sure, here it is

Sweet, thanks. I more of wanted to see how you routed the LEDcables than the block orientation. Got it! haha

Got the CPU to run at 5 ghz @1.425 Vcore stable w/ Intel burn test, max temp is 63C. The 1.425V is a bit high for my taste though... I think im just gonna run it at 1.375V @ 4.875Ghz for 24/7 use, max temp on hottest core at this speed never exceeds 60C.

3d mark 11 score P16592 with 2 GTX 670 at 1250 core/7.1 Ghz memory





Video card temp full load is still 36C 1st card and 39C 2nd card.

Just done some more tweaks to my video cards, up memory to 7.6 Ghz stable lol and now with the i7 3820 @ 5.0 ghz just break the 17k 3dmark11 barrier :)

That is one sick machine, man. Congrats. I also agree with you, run it under 5ghz to keep it safe. Honestly, the benefits from 4.8 to 5ghz are negligible at best. Bench it at 5, maybe, but for everyday usage I'd be surprised if even 4.5ghz would pose even the slightest bottleneck. Anything above stock speeds probably isn't doing much for gaming, anyway.

Came over after you posted in my new build thread, you have definitely made a very tasty looking build there. Am still looking into the switch 810, but your build has inspired me to really count it as a contender for my build. (tempted by the white one)

Nice job, and cheers for the advice on the water cooling!
