Thanks, I think it was you I said to awhile ago I wanted to do something somewhat smaller and more fit and finished. I much prefer it this way. It's very clutter free and I could still do a lot more if I wanted. There is literally not a single wire that you can see in the front minus from it being plugged in. It's really nice having the PSU on the back side.

Also dropping from the RX360, to the RX240. I actually seen a temperature drop? I don't know if it's because of the higher amount of air flow through the case on components or not. But my idle temps are around 28c compared to 33c before.

Load dropped aswell from 63-65 to 55c

I tend to delete things. I cant stand clutter or holding on to things. I've never had more than 500GB on any given hard drive.

So you could put two regular HDs up front, and 4 SSDs in back. But like I said, for me, even that's overkill. I could never imagine needing that much space.

Hmm... interesting. That restores some of the appeal then. :lol:

I have a ton of family photos and pictures, as well as a rather large music and movie library. And all of those are only growing. Looking to build a file/media server in the future, and that case seems pretty fit for the job. That'd hold 6 laptop hard drives it sounds like. One small SSD for boot and a few programs, then five larger HDD's strictly for storage (redundancy implied). I like. :D

Nice looking build by the way. As has already been stated- very clean and tidy looking. :up:

demo Aug 11, 2013 12:04 AM

Yeah I want my next build to be as small as possible too CP. I think that is the future for quality builds.

The case does look good no doubt, but even corsair stated that it was primarily designed for those still sticking to air cooled setups, so it kinda weird seeing one water cooled, so props for originality....

Meteor_of_War Aug 11, 2013 10:01 AM

Nice CurrentlyPissed, I like it.:up:

Its cool that the PSU is totally hidden in the back. Makes it look really clean. Only thing I would change however is I'd put the 3.5" HDD in the front, and SSDs in the back where they're intended.

i am too ashamed to post pics in this thread. My rig follows no aesthetic standard. stuff is just there :p

Meteor_of_War Aug 11, 2013 11:08 AM

I enjoy looking at all kinds of systems. They don't always have to look all pretty.

I actually appreciate the more messy ones sometimes, shows some character.:)

Mangler Aug 11, 2013 11:11 AM

Would be pretty cool if corsair launched a slightly larger version of that cube case, you could do some pretty cool stuff with it if it could fit a thicker rad in the front.

Don't feel too bad man, my rig is presently a mess. I am planning on really cleaning it out and devoting some solid time to cable management when my new PSU and HSF arrive. I'll try and snap some pics as well. But right now it's a rat's nest. :lol: :o

The problem is I am a man of symetry. I only have 1 standard HD and there are two slots for it in the front. It would drive me crazy.

I bought about 650$ of extra water cooling gear yesterday, but will need to find several days to actually get this stuff installed and/or modified, to make the system look even better and offer even more cooling performance.....Might actually get it all done in one shot if the new HD9000 cards are good, buy 4 of those, and also get new water blocks for them while i'm at it, so it should be done by Xmas....:lol:

You're rig is legit for sure, but you spend money on the dumbest ****.

We seem to have similar interests when it comes to pc rigs :D . Btw has anyone here put a water-block on a titan?

I'll make it look even better with shorter tube lenghts, more chrome fittings of all types( compression and angled variety) and a revised flow path for both loops, snazzier looking fan controlers and a dual bay tank to make it easier to check water level on the CPU side.....It's got to look good and not just be fast....:lol:


The hardware itself was fast 2+ years ago when it was first built, and it's still fast even today, but i'm still thinking to add a dedicated raid controler with 512MB of cache that has it's own CPU( think LSI or adaptec), along with 4 SSD's in raid 0....The controler can handle 8 drives without cable expanders, so i'm good for even more in the future....As for the other stuff, i was looking at those new ivy bridge Xeon's with 12 cores in each one and 30 MB of L2 cache, but they wil max out at 2.7 Ghz and still cost 3000$ a pop, so i'd be looking at near 7000$ between 2 of those CPU's and the EVGA SR-X motherboard....Ouch price territory.


Though there will a version with 8 cores clocked at 3.4 Ghz base, and might be able to get it to 4 Ghz with the motherboard alone, even though the multiplier is locked on the CPU's, and these will cost 2200$ each so it shaves off nearly 2000$ for a 16 core setup compared to a 24 core setup running at just 2.7 Ghz, which i'm still not happy with the potential increase in performance given the amouunt of money that's being payed, but ivy bridge does have about 25~30% better IPC than my chips at the same clock, and 4 extra cores to play with so while the value for the money is horribly bad, there is some performance increase to be had no matter what software is being run.


When i built this monster, i really built a monster thaat's hard to beat when considering all types of software, not just gaming....:lol:

All the instructions come with the kit itself, including thermal pads and thermal paste and where to put them on the card....About the only issue is having a really good screwdriver set that includes really small philips and torx screwdrivers, as the screws on the original air cooler can be really small....


The rest is the same for any water cooled part( bleeding and checking for leaks, etc..)

Very nice job Dave!!! Super clean dude.

Dave Aug 24, 2013 09:06 PM

I wish the heatsink on the VRM and on the chipset were black or aluminum. The blue clashes with everything else.

demo Aug 25, 2013 12:53 AM

I like the orientation of the board in that case, like a bench rig.

HyperNovae Sep 3, 2013 06:30 PM

Dave which cpu cooler is that? The h60? I almost picked one up last friday. Might grab one this week, was wondering what you thought about it?

Dave Sep 3, 2013 06:50 PM

That's the h90. Awesome cooler. Able to keep my 3770k under 75c in prime95 at 4.4ghz with 1.24volts

Know what it was with the stock cooler?

Man, when did the world go wrong and people start shooting for under 75c :(

:yes:

HyperNovae Sep 3, 2013 08:43 PM

lol are you guys saying your cpus run higher? Or is my sarcasm meter broken?

I try and keep mine below 50c.

Back in the day 75c would be call the fire department your cpu melted.
