One of two radiators done!
I've been in great discussions with Frozen Q about the custom Apex mATX case. It seems that putting two full ITX systems and a full custom watercooling loop into an mATX chassis isn't the easiest task, who would've thought?
Two ITX boards (One with a big GPU)
Two ATX Power Supplies
Two 280mm Radiators
Two (actually three) SSDs
etc etc. I think you get where I'm going with this
Prototyping some new cable combs Expect to see more 3D printing!
After much tinkering the best I can do with the 6600K is 4.7 GHz @ 1.488v load and 1565/8002 for the GTX 970 on Time Spy benchmark. As far as the 7870K goes, previously my best overclock was 4.5 GHz @ 1.5v with AMD Overdrive, but I can't wait to try it with BIOS overclocking.
We finally finished the design of the case. My creative mind goes crazy when I get to do customization. Cutting should be starting today! This is an as-close-as-you'll-get render of the case
I'll just leave these here.
Just to let you all know, I should be getting pictures of the assembled case today To not reveal too much the paper backing will remain (it's actually to protect it during shipping, but helps to not reveal too much
I can't tell you exactly what but I've got something big coming. Something Pascal big from Gigabyte.

Preview of things to come!
So next week will be big. I'm getting my new video card (Thursday) and my case (Tuesday)!!
