SR2 Build

I have been lusting after an SR-2 rig for some time and now i am in the position to get one.
After much consideration and head scratching,i went for the Little Devil V8 inverted HPTX case.

I realize that this build may seem disjointed,it has been running for a while on other forums..
Sorry about that..anyway...






I was VERY tempted by the caselabs MH10 but the shipping costs and VAT crippled that idea...£700 for a case is unacceptable to me!!

Hardware:

Board: SR-2 ,MIPS mobo block with VRM block and 2 Watercool HK 3's (black)
CPU: x5650 Hexacores
Ram:12-24Gb Corsair or G Skill....not decided yet
GPU: 3x 7950...this really depends on the availability of reference layout cards
Storage: 2x Force GT 120Gb SSD (1 for OS,1 for games and everything else) 1x 2tb HDD for storage
PSU: 1200w Silent Pro,maybe Strider 1500w













This rig will be dual loop and 24v,the reasoning behind this is the restrictive rads will make a D5 cry if left on its own to do the work!
As usual SpecialTech is my vendor of choice for this....anyway TO THE PR0N!!

Cooling:
2x 360 AMS rads with D5
1x 480 AMS Dualcircuit rad
2x Bitspower 200mm Res (depending on how much room the PSU takes up)
2x Watercool HK blocks in Black
1x MIPS SR-2 mobo block
2x 24v D5 pumps
1x Koolance 24v twin pump controller
Koolance Copper pipe fittings
















Some components may change but this is how i see it coming together.




A little bit of progress...

Double wires FTL.












Off come the stock EVGA plates for the cut down version (supplied,EVGA are thoughtful like that)



Watercool back plates..



Mounting hardware..



Right then.....

Whats this?


Magoo also wants to know what it is.










The SR-2 is a huge board but is tiny in there








Chrome plated.....yum!

PSU done,just the molex and sata to do...





Also swapped the fan panel around so Silent Pro looks the right way up...

Ok,first hitch of the day,looking at the clearance of the PSU to the AMS rad and have discovered they wont fit. 146mm wide rad=PITA!



So the Dual psu extender is required after all.



Also,the bloody 24 pin is too short,24 pin extender GO!

My doubts about the Chrome flaking off the tube was put to rest....



Today i had a look at the bending required,no sniggering at the back please.

You may have been wondering what the red tape was for? it is the 0 line for the bend,i can work out the length required to get 2 90 bends to meet to set out dimensions


To get this..


Got some push fit fittings to make the test fitting.






I may even keep using these fittings,they look ok and are 1/3rd the price of the koolance fittings.
Downside is i dont trust push fit fully,not like a proper compression fitting.

The tails have not been cut yet,i want the piping at the same level. So,i need to get the Ram in and see what i can chop off...


Or i could use 45's...

Wow. How did you do the bending? That looks real slick. I prefer the 90's myself, but they both look amazing. Nice work!

A set of 10mm benders,about £20 for a good set of rothenberger ones,cheap ones have poorly aligned guides.

Don't worry about the push fits, they're far more secure than any compression. If they weren't, Legris stuff wouldn't be used in just about every machine we ran at JVC. I'm using them for the same thing in my build. Steel tubing there too.

I use push-fit all the time at work,a good compression fitting with olive will be a stronger union,i am at mains pressure at work tho...a 15psi air test will find any leaks before water goes in loop.

Tubing is Copper,plated in chrome,easier to bend and easier to cut with a 10mm autoslice.

Thanks Guys for your comments so far,i appreciate it.
Is it bad to be looking to another build already? Got a few ltrs of Novac 649 for some immersion action next year....

It's so shiny This looks like it will be fun. Could you please tell me how those fans perform, once you have managed to test them a little. I saw them the other day and thought I might give them a go
