    Hi guys I've just started an upgrade to my previous build "Primo Midas" which was based on an Asus X79 Deluxe. Rig was built with Folding@Home and BONIC use in mind.
    I had a moment off madness and have not bought the following.

    Motherboard: Asus Z10PE-D8-WS (Dual Socket)
    CPU's : Dual Intel Xeon V3 2.2Ghz 14 Core (Engineering samples)
    Memory: Crucial CT4K8G4RFS4213 288 Pin 32GB (8GB x4) CL15 DDR4 DIMM Memory Module Kit
    Plextor : M.2 2280 SSD 256GB Model PX-G256M6e

    Here's how my rig looked yesterday morning... before I begun the upgrade :thumb:

    Now some work after having tested my new parts. Here was my test rig using old CM Stacker removable MB tray.

    That's it for the moment, I want to get it back under water next. I have dual Nvidia 780Ti's which I will be using again.
    I also now have a second cpu water block, however its an EK Supremacy EVO Gold, my original block is the non EVO version and they do look slightly different. Will get some pics for you all soon.

    I hope you like, obviously she's looking a bit untidy atm but I've had it running since putting into my Primo Enthoo. I wanted to play safe and make sure everything was working after moving into the case, that's why I kept it on air for the time being.

    Thanks Tim, yeah I think the yellow has to go. Vanilla would look much nicer this time round.

    Sorry its been a while been very busy renovating an old property. Anyway I have made slow progress but finding it rather difficult learning how to bend the hardline nicely. Anyway here are some images.

    Well I finally finished, however my hardline plan did not go well when the collars cracked and leaked. Thankfully no damage was done, I went back to soft tubing to get the build finished and running again. Its busy working on some BONIC and Fold@Home stuff and is awesome at crunching through it.

    Like I told you; some sand sleeving to replace the yellow and it will be even more amazing than it already it.

    I really like it. It breathes power!
    But you managed to keep it clean.

    Thanks very much, considering how pro your build are I appreciate the comments.

    Tim you are an inspiration, if I could do half the stuff you do I'd be satisfied, thanks for all the help and advice you give so freely. Yes Vanilla Sands one day, when I stop BONIC long enough ;)

    Looks great, even the soft tube!
    maybe the hard cracking was a good thing in the end ;)
    making me want to go with black water now.
