That board is insane, I love it and would buy one myself but they cost around $800AUD lol.
You have quite a dream build there.
Keep up the great work.
wow! nice board mate...... im truly jealous.
Had to sell most of my hardware,so i now need to work hard and save .
Wee update a set of bitspower waterblocks have been ordered for the EVGA X58 Classified from Holland today so piccys when they arrive
Be sure to read the eVGA forums about the quirks of the Classified. You have to give it some TLC to make it work it's hardest for you
Sweet mod so far, I'll definitely follow this one
Ok a few little upadtes on my build.
I thought i would test my rad to make sure i didnt puncture anything when i replaced the carbon panel rivets with screws and to test my fittings incase they leak and im very happy to say no leaks at all.
Ive not bothered to braid the rad fans as im not sure if i will be keeping these,i have found some good sharkoon`s that i`ll need to try out.
New Koolance 3.25 DDC fitted with XSPC res top
Next things to do is install the bitspower blocks and the heatkiller cpu waterblock.
love the tubing colour scheme nice and bold !
Looking really good. Those Bitspower fittings are lovely. Are you using white or black tubing - seems to have been swapped round?
Only got the spare black hose on for now as the rads filled with water to test it working with the pump.
Waterblocks fitted and leak tested
Just got some bits to tidy it up and sort out my window and jobs done.
Drain valve fitted.
Idles around 32 on stock 920 DO settings with 6 low speed 140mm yates.
Nice temps but I have to say that personally I am not happy with the plumbing, something about it just doesn't look right to me IMO. It's the lead going from the CPU block to the NB block, either face the fitting on the NB block towards the CPU block (not towards the PCI slots like you have done) or ditch those fittings and use normal compression fittings, it just looks abnormal. Just my 2 cents.
yeah +1 the plumbing looks wrong :/
Agreed just my first try so i will be on it asap
yeah baby. the rad looks cool. that was a good paintjob at all.
Very nice Mod!! Good job..
Time for a update me thinks
Had a tidy up down below.
Silver coil working a treat.
The new Corsair GT`s.
Found some spare smoked plexi so i cut out a 120mm fan hole.
NOW the tubing looks hawt.
And damn, that's some sweet RAM.
