    Congrats on the new parts. All that nickel plating truly IS Bling-Bling-Bling-Bling-Bli.....

    But I'm a bit confused. I thought the hardware WAS already in there as it should be? What are you replacing with this new stuff from ASUS?

    Well i had an Asus P6T6 WS, but it was already dieing slowly.
    And i thought buying 2 x gtx580 was better then buying an extra Asus 5970 to run with 2 cards.

    Truly outstanding level of build and attention to detail - its this kind of work which keeps me coming back to view bit-tech's projects page.

    I say this log before xmas but i was at work so didnt get chance to sit browsing the photos so glad i've taken the time this evening

    Here some pictures of the conversion.

    First of all, thanks again Highflow, EKWB en Asus !


    Even on air they are lovely.

    [​IMG]


    But i love WC blocks :p

    [​IMG]


    You can easily spend a hole evening on 2 cards.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    And thats 1

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    And thats 2 :)

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Had a small break, had to wait for a replacement part for the EK rex3 block (broke while shipping)

    And i've been to Cebit to personally thank one of my sponsors :)

    [​IMG]


    Replacement part came in the next morning :)

    [​IMG]


    Quite an impressive block, it has 4 O-rings in it

    [​IMG]


    And now the adjustments for the bigger mainboard and the extra needed cables for the gpu's

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Had to do everything by hand cause i didnt want to clear the hole desk

    [​IMG]


    Also the mainboard tray needed some work.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Discs specially aluminum.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    And done.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Now i can start fitting in the Bitspower parts

    [​IMG]


    Every SLI connector has to fit exactly.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    One of the many times fitting it in the desk.

    [​IMG]


    Only one connector to go.

    [​IMG]


    Got the tip to polish the silvercoil :)

    [​IMG]


    Hmm..

    [​IMG]


    But it's shiny again :)

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Cable for the extra molex on the Rex3.

    [​IMG]


    After one hour i finally found a way to get all the cables under the mainboardtray

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    And some teasers for later this week :)

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    When looking for the newest bios for the rex3, i also found a driver for symbian phones.
    I had no idea this was so easy :)

    This build continues to look more and more amazing every time I take a look.

    Awesome that you had a chance to see one of your sponsors in person at CeBit, do you know if they were following your build development at all?

    Thanks alot !

    I was wondering that myself too, but dearest Vincent has a very busy life with Bitspower :)
    He did see the pics a few times, but forgot about it a few months ago :)

    Off course he's totally updated now again :)

    It's almost impossible to see the red slots when the leds are on, and 90% of the time they are on :)
