    Nice indeed!!
     
    What's that case like?  I've been looking at it for my build.
    Not that I actually need one that big, just tired of
    squeezing everything into my current case.
    It would nice to have some room to move around in!
    Also may come in handy for a small gpu farm in the
    future.

    Any reason you don´t have the cpu coolers blowing upwards, and put that gpu in one of the other slots?

    No reason. I honestly didn't put much thought into it. But now that you ask it looks like there is enough clearance for them but they would cover the RAM. I would at least have to remove the cooler to access the front two sticks. The rear case fan is 140mm and I like the airflow over the RAM. The CPU's run very cool and quiet and heat is not an issue. I think it looks best this way too.

     The case is amazing and huge! No surprises. It makes my Antec 1200 look like a HTPC. lol I'm a little upset it's for my dedicated DC system. My only advice is make sure you see one in person so you fully understand how huge it is before you unbox it. The next step up for us is server racks. lol

    Looks great, and good job on the build. I have a Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra sitting here waiting for a build. It's the same basic case with a different looking outside, so I can attest to the overall monstrosity that your case is.

    Unfortunately the only place again here that stocks them is a warehouse & the won't unbox one for you.
    Might have to mock something up with some wood.  I Really need something about 3/4 the size. - between a mid and a full tower size, but I do like the look of that case!
     
    thumbs up again.

    Ah, cause  on the pic it looks like one cooler is blowing the hot air into the other one. But if temps are cool, there´s no need to change it.

    Nice, gives me lots of idea's for my upcoming build - gotta ask though , what are temps like on your cpu's. ?  I'm looking at the same mobo but thinking of having the heatsinks blow the warm air up straight out the top of the case
    alos regarding the case, ssi EEB mobo's are not small, in that case though they are just tiny

    The temps were in the mid 40s while folding with Windows 7. We can't overclock so CPU core temps aren't an issue. The motherboard's EEB Form Factor is 12 inch x 13 inch ( 30.5 cm x 33 cm ). Here's the XIGMATEK ELYSIUM next to a decent 7.44W x 16.73H x 19.09D inch mid-sized case. It really doesn't do it justice.

    Just need to reroute that one yellow SATA cable & you'll be clean as a pin.
    Go down threw the hole by the SATA drive & back up threw the hole at the edge of the motherboard were it connects.

    I'm going to buy a black SATA cable and will reroute it and the power cable. I need to get my sleaving kit back out too. I did the CPU coolers' fans but didn't have enough time or energy for all of the case's wires. This sleeving kit was a great investment.

    Why would you need to buy a new black SATA cable?
    The Z9PE-D8 comes with plenty of them besides the red ones (well, at least mine did).
    In case you still need one, and still are in Germany , send me a pm, and I´ll send you one of my billion spare ones

    Great build David...gotta love a Case that can house either a 2P or a 4P! 
     
    On the sleeving, I buy most of that stuff from Performance PCs.  You can go the "kit route" or roll your own with individual choices, lengths, etc which is one reason I like their offerings.  They also sell discrete components for cables (connectors, pins, pinning tools, etc) if you want to get into building your own custom cables.
     
    Here's a direct link to their "Wire Management" section of their store.

    On that "yellow" SATA cable, I've been known to take a "black Sharpie marker" to stuff like that when I just want it to be black vs some other color.  Gets the job done and looks OK too.

    Barbarossa was right about the black SATA cables being included. 6 to be exact. I only noticed the 8 red SATA cables when I grabbed the motherboard and manual out of the box. Guess I owe him a drink now.

    Excellent, now don't touch ANYTHING on that system - that seems to make it more likely that you will get a streak of 8102's.

    Yep, that´s my experience as well.
    Once you catch an 8102 you seem to stick with the Run/clone till the end. Then follows a 6901, than back to 8101s.

    I will not touch a thing. I still haven't swapped the SATA cables and put the case back together. I just look at it from a distance and normally check EOC Folding@Home Stats on another system.
