Cheers for the feedback

Just quickly had to mount 4 red LEDS to the reverse side to see if the red plexi was going to glow OK and all looks well considering these were taken in day light so should look much better at events where it always tends to be darker.

That logo is looking so sexy, anyone who didn't know better would think it was an official part released as part of a limited edition batch.

Catch wait to see how this mod develops.

I've got to totally strip the case and get it ready for the painter on Monday but couldn't resist seeing what the bezel and res looked like in place.

I've also made some Aurora Red dye to match the logo which looks pretty cool and can be seen better in the Youtube video at the bottom.

Intel Xeon E5-2687W s2011 CPU's should be here Monday and hoping to go quad Sli on the Hydro Copper 680's but not sure on that just yet but with a bit of luck i might be able to get it fired up on the bench at some point next week but at least i'm well happy with the way the front end is looking.

Cheers guys, sorry i haven't got anything better to offer you

My apologies to all hoping to see a bit of a mod update but iíve had a few teething problems with the SR-X board Ė nothing major but as there is very little info out there at this point it was a little trial and error which is very quite time consuming but got their in the end and just want to update the thread as it may help others in the future.

Hereís the shortened version - the week started off great with a nice package from Intel landing early Monday in the shape of a couple of retail Xeon E5 2687W CPUís so i set about getting the system up and running on the bench, air cooled so installed a GTX295 dual PCB graphics card and managed to get a fresh install of W7 but immediately ran into problems with BSOD.

Tried as i might to get it to run stable that night, it wasnít to be so was well happy when i woke the next morning to find a new BIOS had been released for the board but the happiness didnít last long as once the new BIOS was flashed i wasnít able to get a signal to the monitor.

The SR-X comes with a three way switch to load separate BIOSís so decided to risk another and flashed the second with the new BIOS which led to the same problem.

Looking back now Iím wondering to myself why i didnít swap the graphics card out but it really didnít cross my mind at the time and it was only when another guy posted similar problems with a GTX690 on the EVGA forum that the penny sort of dropped.

Both of us were using dual CPU graphics cards so swapped my 295 out and replaced it with a GTX7800 (stop laughing) and BINGO, working fine and BSOD had been fixed with the new BIOS so all working champion and i can now get on to running a few benchmarks but more to the point, get on with making the case look pretty.

Sorry for the long winded post which probably doesnít mean a lot to most but you never know whoís searching Google Ė full original thread here - EVGA SR-X - BIOS 013 Released
Oh the other good news was that a second EVGA GTX680 Hydro Copper arrived so couldnít resist getting a few photoís of that fitted to the board

Anyway, a few pictures.....







stop laughing at my GTX7800 hehehehehehe

I couldn't get the case painted before the bank holiday and neither could i wait to get this up and running but luckily most of the parts that will be getting painted can be removed without too much disruption to the system.

Started to hose route the build last night but had a change of heart on the way to route the Hydro Copper blocks - i went for the curved look at first but decided swapping overnight and going for the straighter route which left a shorter run back to the bay-res which looks better IMO and keeps things even more minimal which is definitely the look i was after though pretty tricky considering the size of the motherboard i had to squeeze in but at least it fills the Cosmos II up.

Just need to add some fluids and do a bit of cable management and i can get this beast fired up

Cheers guys

Well not exactly how iíd envisioned things happening but a few initial teething problems with the BIOS and a bank holiday to contend with meant the chassis painting was delayed and with Computex kicking off in two days, i decided to complete the build so at least i could grab some pictures of the fully working system and luckily all the parts that are getting painted can be easily removed in the coming week or so and paint work carried out.

I just wish i had better photographic skills as i havenít done this thing justice because in real life it looks absolutely stunning even though i say so myself..........i honestly donít think there is one aspect iím unhappy with and the X logo on the front looks amazing.

Anyway, a few finished (until its painted) photos and spec....
