As above, but checking out the eye candy.

That is one sweet ass build!

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.

Truly outstanding.....Wow
One of the Best i've ever seen.

I hope you've put this on the EVGA site as well.

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.

Fantastic build - well done! Has tempted me to build another loop myself...

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

As everyone else has rightly said WOW! thats one epic case alright. Well done Mr Edwards

Fantastic work, looks amazing!

Quite Possibly one of the neatest builds i have seen!
the_kille4 27th June 2011, 17:13 Quote
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

you have such an aching to see figures after all this though. Incredible build though. twenty out of ten!

Been following this on OCUK :)

Nice one mate!

I'm still very impressed by how nifty you are with a manual fretsaw :D, a technique I just couldn't bother gaining after blades snapping while just doing a tiny bit of cutting in 3mm thick alu :) requires perfect preasure (very minimal) & up/down motion but you got the technique perfect.

Overall a really nice chop job mod that turned out as you expected (clean retail look) ;).

When i first started this project, never did i think the finished mod would evoke this amount of fantastic comments and feedback so a massive thanks to all who took time out to post and also to vote it 1st place in the Coolermaster 2011 full tower mod.

Awesome dude, I just love black and red theming. Just like blue and silver is the perfect match for brushes aluminum cases. Its perfectly clean also.

Great job!
