    HOWDY!


    So, its about that time of year again when I get the itch to build something. This build has actually been in the planing stages for about 3 months, if not more. I am going to keep certain parts of the build secret until i get to the point where I reveal them. You can expect the full compliment of pictures to be done, along with Videos where I can. There definitely will be one done on the case, and one for atleast 2 other parts :-D

    I don't yet have the case in hand, but I do have most of the core components. I'm still waiting to hear back from a couple of people to wrap this up. Did I mention that this build is Sponsored!??!?!

    UPDATE TIME!!!

    So for this build I wanted to have monster power in a mini package, Enter the EVGA X99 Micro. Pairing this with a 5960x is going to give me all the power I could want and the form factor to keep everything compact.

    So, without further delay!

    These last few pictures are also VERY VERY important. They will bring to light the first of the big surprises of this build.

    Three Full Size PCI-E 3.0 Slots... in all their X16 Glory!

    And the actual surprise?!

    Very interrestig build.
    Custom Parvum looks really awsome.
    Will you hack up the Rear IO of the GPU´s or will you use a Flexible risercard to move the 3rd card one slot ?
    Tri Sli will be just x8,x8,x8 according to EVGA Homepage but still plenty of grunt as its pcie3.0.

    Or watercooled? It is a Parvum case.. So watercooling cheesecake would look good! Plus then the cards are only single slot!

    Thank ya! I'll be busting out the dremel for this one! The cards will be watercooled so I wont have to fuss with the cooler.

    The cards should run at 16/16/8 per my conversations with EVGA. Once they get on there I'll find out for sure though!

    You got it.

    Thank ya... Yeah, that double width does give that appeal!

    It´s a pity that all mondern GPU´s seem to have the double DVI stacked.
    If they woudn´t have them stacking GPU´s would be easy done when watercooling them.
    Good luck with hacking the DVI connector into pieces.

    two titan x. wow
    ouch.
    Did you get a good price for the unused 980s or did evga exchange them ?
    At least you do not need to chop a GPU Backpanel when drowngrading to 2way sli instead of tri-sli.

    Does this change build plans for the case? You'll not be needing this 6 pci slots anymore. Cant wait to see what two Titan X's will do! Got your order in with EKWB for blocks?
