Very impressive build! :thup:

I hadn't seen this thread before but I've been lurking a bit here in this section recently since I've switched some of my rather simple crunching/benching rigs over from air to water.

Nice work!! So what kind of daily overclock are you now running?

I'm not a bencher or folder, electricity is expensive where I am at.. :shrug:

This puppy is not overclocked at all, other then the ram running at XMP profile 2133mhz which does not really count, this system is fine the way it is as a general everyday usage (me just a simple user)...


Here's what she looks like now:

3 Screen Gaming + 1 More for Music, Watching reruns of Supernatural or just FAQ searching.. :D

soooo here's a cool update, well I think it is..

Build log name changed from "Rig AKA Hamster" to "Rig AKA Hamster Network"... gotta love the irony..

Updated main page with currently used gear !!

I finally got my gigabit vpn firewall up and running and manually transferred all my settings from my old 100mbit vpn firewall to my new one, that was no fun.. But I love the speed..

Added another monitor to my surround, it's connected to a Dell Precision workstation, not my main rig.. Comes in handy when I want to game and have another monitor, kinda like the 680 3x Monitor surround + accessory monitor, but only much more versatile..

I redid my loop, the plasticizer from my previous loop got really nasty after 3 months, everything was clean except for the "powder like" film in the tubing..


I didn't realize there was THIS MUCH barbs in my system until I took them all out and piled it together...

The blocks are pretty clean, so it's not gunk from the dye I used.

Tubing cut.. The substance is not "gui" at all, more like a "powder" feel, a simple touch scrapes it.

AND here's some pics of my Server setup, it's nothing fancy but it kicks "tails".. I don't have a shot of the LSI installed, so one from a review site will have to do for now..

I had a old H70 laying around, since the 2500K has a built in GPU which I will be using, this is perfect.
