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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
