What will go into the build?
i bought the board on ebay from a guy who regret the buy of that board and i got a black prodigy case so far. The case will get some lite modding in the front. I plan on using a i5 processor and a GTX 670 grafics card. Everything will be watercooled with homemade waterblocks when my newly ordered CNC machinery will arrive

I5 wont fit in this board since its socket 2011. Maybe you have bought the motherboard from the SZ77R5 which have a socket 1155?

So a little update on the project.
I have installed the two SSD beside the PSU since they could not be placed in the left side.
But they fitted just fine beside the PSU:


Also installed the two HDD with some anti vibration rubber.


And as you can see I have also sleeved and shorten most of cables.




Just need to sleeve the fan, temperatur and pump and then that's done

And in this weekend the two windows will be made.
And hopefully the last GPU arrives monday and then I will fill it up and boot it up

As promised an update first with some big pictures of the case with the new windows:




Also made a hole to get the cables from the three fans in to the case :


And some more Cable sleeving now that the other GPU has been placed inside




And the two GPU fitted just perfect :thup:






Really love the EK block with Pexi and nikkel. Looking forward to fill it up and see it with UV light




Hope you like it.

The back plate will be painted white and the RAM dimms blue to make it fit the theme.

And then it should be ready to be booted

I can't quite see, but where does the water come out from the GPUs?

The GPUs chosen for the back panel and ease of water cooling is pretty damn cool. There will be no space at all in there once you're finished.

What sort of temps are you expecting?

Thanks

The water is coming in and out on the other side of these pictures (The inside of the case, see other post for pics).

Well, the temps depent on the speed of the fans, OC and load.
I expect them to be low, but how low, I don't now yet, but I will post it when tested

So lets tease a little bit more:
Last night I booted the baby up and it all worked just fine (only in the bios).

So next step was to paint the motherboard and also the GPU back plate.
First of the GPU's and the now white painted back plate:

Now that's close for two GPU's

Here the now white back plate:


And with a bit more light:


And then to the motherboard.
Before:


And then three hours later :wackosmil:



So im just missing some UV LED and then this build should be done

Tomorrow I will fill it up and boot it again.

And friday the LED should arrive and then you will get some cool pictures

I didn't realise you could do that, I've never used a watercooling in a build before. So the water flow splits in half at the inlet and then rejoins at the outlet for both? With only half the pressure how does that compare to a serial set up?

That's a lovely GPU sandwich you've got there.

The differnce between Serial and Parallel is almost non, and the difference depends on the used blocks, and sometimes Serial wins and other times Parallel.

I my situation this seems to be the only option, unless I made the tupe go on the out side of the window and then back in.

WOW those GPU look amazing, and yes I agree the board layout is not that pretty.

Anyway I really like this case and the space management look fantastic.

Shuttle would be the only who does a x58 Mainboard fitting into the Prodigy, so I could re-use my Gulftown and Tripple Channes Dominators.

Can you still get one of those barebones?

I have installed the last stuff, filled it up and is currently leak testing.
And I must say, it is pretty awesome with the blue water inside

But I like to tease a bit, so:

Tonight (12-10-2012) at 21:00 GTM 0
You will get pictures of the currently final build (updates to the HW may come later on ).
So hang tight, it will blow your mind

Amazon.de lists it for about 300€.
ButI´d say It would be pretty useless for me, still tempting
Will finish the Prodigy off with S1155, and then decide what to do with the S1366 Gaming from the A05

So as promised (little late, sorry (problem uploading pictures))

So I filled it up, and did some leak testing and there was a small leak.
Luckly it was from a temperature plug that just need a bit of tighten


But you really just want the pictures right


















I will try to take som more "show" pictures tomorrow.

AND around the same time as today you will get pictures of the build with UV light!
Which makes it look even more awesome

Very nice indeed.

Shame it required buying a system to be able to do it though, but if that's the only option then nice one, awesome system, only just fits in there.

So here is the pictures of the build with UV light on.

It is pretty deficult to take really good a UV picture (looks better in real life), I will try some more settings, but if any of you got some please share

Maybe some more light around the build next time






I cant show the GPU side without the side, since that where the LED strip is placed:


But then it's good I got a window right










Again it looks better in real life.
So if you got any setup/setting for the camara (Canon EOS 7D) please let me know

I have also just gotten windows installed on the Raid 0 with the SSD's.

Iwill do some bench and post result along temps. And of course with som OC

Got any bench program you like me to run?
