Well 5.2 was just for benching, the temps were actually fine (70s), but it wasn't stable for 24/7 nor were the volts friendly for 24/7. For now I'm running 4.9GHz 24/7 and folding bigadv I get temps in the 59-69C range across all cores with a 25C ambient.

Thanks don't worry it'll fill up, just will take some time

Took a break to put together an ivy rig for a co-worker:

A board!



blah blah blah marketing - where's the window that the extreme boards have?



Now there's a board



I liked the door hanger - unfortunately this is for an overclocked workstation so not too useful here:



A large box for some memory (32giggles):



Matching:



Oh and a cpu:



Best put that in the socket then:



We should remove that plastic cover too:



Putting in that H100:



Yeah I know no custom water loop, but this is going to someone who can't be trusted with such things

miniThief is getting there:



miniThief- now with 100% more PSU:



Don't forget a GPU (9800GT cheesecake!)



Close up:

So back to the *real* project. Now that my workstation was up and running, I could take the old one down:



OMG dust! This is three months worth:



Still yucky:





Got out the duster and started taking it apart:



Nearly done



Now I've gone and made the kitchen messy again:

So as it's the weekend you get bonus updates

This is how I initially wanted the PSU's to give maximum air intake:



However the left PSU once it had cables would conflict with the 360 rad mounted in front of it, so I decided to move it:



Done, you can see there's still a good amount of space in between:



Now to mount them - they're going in the second to bottom compartment:



and mounted:



Now time to mount all the hard drives - here are the gaming rig drives:



Now let's add in the workstation drives:



old skool x25e:



All done:



Now to cable it - I hate how asus only give you sata cables with right angles at one end and straights at the other. For this build I really need straight to straights, so I had to order some more from the egg, this is the temporary rats nest:



Yikes!

Alright a quick update as I got some more time to process photos (on a side note the first mdpc package came woot!)

I got the workstation back up and running:



But I had to use the gaming side for location of the power supply as the cables were not long enough to reach the real location. As you can see it makes a good storage room also:



Workstation in action - no 2nd 8800gt yet because I'm only driving two screens, the card is being used as a test card for now for some other rigs I'm building.



Again a lot of fittings are temporary. So now back to the gaming rig. I transferred the sweet trident ram from my worksation to the gaming rig (I think it maybe hypers), it can do 2130 CL 8 and probably more but that's the limit of my 990x IMC. Should have tried two sticks in the 3770K rig I slapped together to see what it could really do! The ugly p6t board that was being used for the workstation is now going into a generic network maintenance use and will be put in a rack.



A shot of that sexy ram:



And the motherboard tray:



Here you can see I had soldered on an extra molex connector to the board (just to the bottom of the STX). My old case didn't have room to connect a power cable to the real connector, so this helped me give the gpus enough power.



And now time to swap the 920 for that sweet 990x:

Alright time to swap those cpus - out with the 920:



And in with the 990x:



Close it up:



Mount the CPU block and add the g3/8 adapters - luckily the 5Noz has a very wide port spacing:



Which means you can mount the high flow VL4N quick disconnects - unfortunately they are g 3/8 and don't come with right angle options, so I have to have adapters both ends and then a g1/4 female to female before I can add in the 90 degree rotary fitting:



Here we are with the old GPUs mounted too:



And here's how it will look as this will be the reverse ATX side:



Now it's time to repurpose that clown board:



And done til the case comes:

Second update of the day - sleeving came in:



Always interesting to see stamps from a foreign land And of course the obligatory nils drawing



The results from the last survery were clear:



So now I made them with real sleeve (24 pin left and 8 + 6 pin right) (only one row of course) (photographed outside under cloud, the background is the pedestal back plate which is powdercoated the same color as all internal parts):



















I'm leaning towards D or F. However there's one last complication there is red or the "x" color that is basically a deep red-brown kind of color. As far as I can tell, the x looks better when next to white, the red otherwise:



Let me know what you think!

I prefer 'B' although I'd probably use a maximum of 3 colours. Have you tried sleeving the red onto a white cable? It tends to brighten it up a bit.

Option D with Red.

Also keep the updates coming!!! I check almost everyday to see how much progress you have made.

I guess I will have to find something else to do with my time when you complete it...
