    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? ;)

    That means,


    • 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 ;)


    Stay tuned! :D

    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.

    UPDATE TIME! :D

    We finally finished the design of the case. My creative mind goes crazy when I get to do customization. Cutting should be starting today! :D This is an as-close-as-you'll-get render of the case :)

    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 :p
