So basically I have been getting rid of my X58 parts for the past month. Ever since I got rid of the SR-2 I never really had a system I liked (two X58 micros, a 4-way, two i7 920s, a Xeon 3520, and an i7 970), but I think I found a happy place with an ASUS Rampage Gene IV (would have been and EVGA if they had a Micro out
) and a happy little i7 3820(well its not little looking at it side by side of a i7 920
Down with the Consoles and let's bring in the real Gaming gear!
Now cooling in that tiny case is darn near impossible. So I built an external water cooler and I am using two quick disconnects to maintain the loop's prime and have the cooler sitting by the open window... Its still in Ghetto mode with me using a nonposting 680i to drive the two Delta PWM fans which put out about 150CFM each on a Phobya 240mm rad.
4-11-12 UPDATE PICS: Cooler Tether Cable complete!!!!
Now to work on the innards of the case a bit more (Modright Hex Mesh Panel and cold cathodes on the way!) and wait for my GTX580 Black Ops edition to arrive!!!
CCFLs Installed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not quite there yet! Tuning in progress.
Modders mesh cable cover installed, final mod.
