    Hi one box,

    The mobo, cpu's and case were bought from bennieboy :)

    The ram was bought new

    The build has come to a halt :(

    The radiator I have came with 6 bags of fan screws but they were 2 different sizes and I started fitting the fans to the rad with the longer screws, and now I've made a hole in the rad :(

    Theres nothing in the box saying they are different sizes and when there all mixed together they all look the same size

    Where exactly is the hole? As if it is just one of the metal fins it doesn't matter. Try leak testing it to see what happens.

    Hope it is just one of the fins.

    What's happened is there's a plate under the screw holes, probably there to prevent this happening or trying too.

    The screw has bent the plate into the fins and spilt one of the water channels, not sure what there called lol they carry the water thought the rad

    Good stuff Kirk, welcome to the SR2 club, I'm using the same case for my SR2 as well, I have a triple rad in the top and a dual rad in the bottom plus an EK SR2 chipset water block, runs nice and quiet but has a 24 thread 4.2ghz kick :)

    cheers coola :)

    do you have the PSU at the bottom?

    i was think of to rads but wasn't sure due to the PSU taking space up

    right i've received a temporary radiator off the market place today, its a 360 but only half height but it will do me for testing etc and i'l see how far i can push the cpus without them getting to hot

    so she will be running this weekend :D

    whats a safe temp for folding with E5620 xeons?

    Intel says Tcase of 77.6 degrees, so I would set low 70's as the max.

    Of course you are liquid cooling so should be able to hit less than that.

    I know the recommendation for Amd multi-socket systems is to run the Kraken without BFS.

    I'm not sure if this applies to Intel chips though.

    on the (H) forum's ubuntu guide it says use both the kraken and BFS for multisocket intel systems :)

    Hi Kirk

    Looks like you just finished your first P8101 :rock: :rock:. How is the SR2 going? I like the white case. Are there any more pics?

    Couple of 5620's have sold for £200 even on the bay, night not be a big expense to get them if you were lucky.

    Unfortunately, more have sold for around £70.

    Hi Kirk

    I am not very familiar with LGA1366 systems. To get to 3.8GHz are you running at 190 x 20? I should think that`s pretty good for E5620s, remember this is folding, it needs to be stable 24/7. The X5650s would be a good choice, save up some money and upgrade later on :).
