    Well here i am again with a new Wavemaster case and a whole bunch of hardware to try and squeeze in it so without further ado let the :dremel: commence :D

    Actually it's been a long time in the planning stages but i had planned on using a larger Coolermater ATC S4000 SX but figured that would be way to easy :blah:

    I'm starting to think i might of bitten off more than i can chew trying to shoe-horn everything into a Wavemaster though, especially once i saw the size of the motherboard but it should be good fun trying and i like a bit of a challenge :D

    The plan is to fit dual dual core Opterons and dual Sli cards hence the name Dualmaster and just to make things even more difficult the Sli slots are only 41mm apart and i'm planning on using 2x NV-68's to cool them :eyebrow: but more of that at a later stage.............i've got to try and make everything fit first.

    BTW, i must give a big thanks to Vadim Computers for having the 265 Dual Core Opterons flown in direct from europe which literally only took a couple of days and also supplying the Tyan K8WE motherboard................top quality service that i would recommend to anyone :thumb:

    I've only just started so not a lot done but on with some pictures anyway!

    Starting off with a standard blue Wavemaster
    [​IMG]

    ...and a matching blue BIX (it won't be mounted in the top this time)
    [​IMG]

    So first of all stripped it naked :eeek:
    [​IMG]

    and covered the top with masking tape to protect the paintwork
    [​IMG]

    The plan is to cut along the red lines which will take out all the hard drive and floppy cage
    [​IMG]

    I'm not a big fan of dremels but managed to get quite a clean cut with it but the last bit i had to use a hacksaw blade
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Anyway thats the first side cut out
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So time to see if things are going to fit..........first the rad.......yip that fits
    [​IMG]

    and then the Tyan K8WE motherboard.........BIG innit :D
    [​IMG]

    That's all for tonight...........i'm off for a cold beer :naughty:

    I'm American... what do you expect? For me to read?! HAH I outsource my reading material to kids in India and they send me back prerecorded tapes of them talking. I then get my assistant to play them for me.

    It's quite rare that I subscribe to anything... but I just have to.

    I thought at first it would be two cases, presumably cubing it up, so to speak. Coolermaster must just give them to you with all the publicity they get out of your mods (and if they don't, they should! your projects have certainly upped my interest in them)

    I hate to think of the cost so far... a quick newegg'ing puts the procs at just under a grand (us) each, the mobo around $500, I'm figuring two gigs of (registered!) ram and the pair of 6800's. good lord. And my money's on the 850(?)w PCP&C psu... I don't think anything less could cut it! And even with what Nexxo's done, I can't see watercooling all that on a 2x120mm rad without tornados (omg, that would be what, 200+ cfm each if they made them?)

    All that power... soon you'll realize games are still single threaded, not to mention you've singlehandedly made the 6800's a marketing success. You're up to what... six of them?

    ok I think I've said (marvelled inwardly at your insanity) enough
