I figured as I had already loaded up some priors (with the 6950s) I would post only one photo. No problem though, I posted a straight on shot. sadly, the wiring was a nit neater with the power connectors on the 6950. The GTX card's connectors are a bit odd as they are rotated from the 6950 orientation, and inverted from each other.
 
Meh, still tidy enough for the job man,
I feel the Pcie connector pain though, my 6950's are in the same place and annoying :p
my solution for that isn't the neatest but it soothes my Ocd hehe
I could drop you a couple of tips for tidying things up further but its more work than most are ready to put in,
Good that you were man enough to post the bare shock pics though :p

Your rig is similiar to mine. Pardon my ignorance, but you didn't WC your gpu's right? I have non reference 670s and I didn't think there was a waterblock out for those yet.

That is a sick little computer my friend! Good job, looks great! :D


 


Those are not watercooled you are correct, but theres no reason one couldn't use uni blocks and ramsinks if F/c blocks aren't available, or if preferred

DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY Jeeze man that is a beast. Tell me you have a moniter set up to take advantage of that. Hows the scaling on the third gpu? More importantly, what kind of temps you getting on those gpus and how to you keep them cool?

Not much room between those 3 x gtx680s do they get hotter than the sun ?

Temps aren't too bad. Top card hits 80 middle and bottom low 70s. I have a 140mm fan aimed right at them and the 600t provides excellent airflow. I currently am only running 1 s27b970, but plan on buying 2 more by the end of the year. it is rather noisy under load but I work/play with headphones 99% of the time anyway! I use this for autodesk inventor and gibbscam, and play a couple games here and there :sol:

Indeed i do. Not only cramped but thing blows out warm air on me and it gets warm. I haven't really shopped around for a stand yet but i will get one though once i find one that i like. I will keep it on the floor for now.

I like Lincolns version, kinda snappier :)
@ Shakal, whats the fan by the side window? no grill in the window so....?

Seems inefficient to my eyes, you take air from the case and feed it back into the case after warming it?
Rads work best with cool air running through them and venting for the warm air to escape
how many exhaust fans you running?
I'm unsure that the rad is performing to the best of its capabilities is all, not knocking you, just trying to deduce a few things :)

i know the fans it didnt really think through all that good because trying to figure out the tubing gave me so much headache that after i was done i just wanted to finish :whistle: As far as exhaust fans just one the one at the end. Im gonna search around and do my final revision sometime withing next 2 weeks as college taking up a lot of my time. So far things i am planning to change.

1. Lighting. Will probably get some white lighting to bring out the parts better.
2. Tubing. Will probably go with black tubing and get mayhems pastel(red) in the loop.
3. Cut a hole in the sidepanel for the 240 radiator or just get a whole clear side window i gotta look into that though as i don't know how that works really.
4. Move the 240 radiator closer to the psu and add a 200mm fan in the front.
5. Flip the fans on the top rad so they are not pulling air into the case but taking it out.
6.Flip the reservoir upside down so that the tube from the cpu goes to the top of the reservoir that will eliminate that long tube going from cpu all the way down to the the bottom if the res

I'm open for suggestions though.

i hope you have nice monitor setup too.
 


Sorry for delay, life got in my way as usual :p

Black tubing red dye? we don't usually recommend dyes as a rule but if you have black tubing as well, you aren't going to see it, except in seethrough blocks and the res,
Cutting acrylic can be fraught with problems, its a very brittle material to work with so research that before trying to cut any holes :)
Top rad should be throwing as exhaust anyway, so yes to that
and if you can shorten the tubing/flip the res to allow that then it will look neater, it will also reduce the volume of water in the loop as well, which will affect your equilibruim time but not massively I think
lightings personal, I'm not a fan of it really but if it rocks your world go for it,
post a thread and we can explore the possibilites in more detail without clocgging up the gallery :)

Good stuff. Looking for a chair like that myself but don't want to pay $700 :p

You have that Revo sandwiched between those GPUs? Well, I guess it's rated for 70C, but I hope its getting the air flow it needs.
