    Incredible build. I love the rear tubing, it really helps with the clean loop you managed to achieve. The all black sleeving makes the cabling blend in, and it doesn't feel cluttered. One wonders where all the probe wires are.

    I have a couple questions though:
    - Is that 1200w PSU really sufficient with 4x480?
    - Have you thought of having your rads blow out left and right, pumping the air from the middle void? I think that might give you even better temps.
    - How are the loops organised exactly?
    I'd have thought a 240 be enough for 1 cpu + its ram, I'd have kept the quads for the video cards only.

    Depending on the PSU, quite a few 1200W will actually handle a 1700W load. If we're talking pure numbers, 130W for the processors and 250W each for the GPUs, = 1260W. Add on some for the rest of the system and any OC.


    I've actually played with an SR2, two highest end Xeons, some 580s and a large stash of liquid nitrogen. Seeing those benchmark numbers fly by is amazing, and getting a top 10 WR on 3D Mark Vantage was awesome. So glad Intel supplied the system that day - I didn't have a spare £3k-£5k for it!

    I should clarify, that's at full load. Most games even at high resolutions won't cause this machine to max out all the CPUs and GPUs at 100% constantly for ages.

    But what about overclocking this watercooled beast?
    Surely the consumption numbers would then explode.

    I'd love to know what temps he gets at load. Also can it play Crysis?

    Hmmm.... currently thinking of something similar in a smaller scale... using two Lian Li Q08 and put a watercooled Z68 setup or two PC-A04 and a X79 setup with all the pipes to carry the liquid, electricity, misc wires around outside... like the pompidou center...xD
