with my p6x58d/x5690 build up and running and doing its thing and my e760 classified mb disassembled and out for sale, i have another x58 mb and a surplus of gpus and now a bunch of 1366s doing nothing.
this is the first test run to see the main components running while we wait for the rest of the goodies to arrive. there is still a few things i need to figure out and buy including a case/mount that can handle a 480mm radiator, maybe a wall mount or some kind of shelf or rack...
 
rampage ii extreme, w3690, 12gb (4x3) dominator ram with led light show, 240gb ssd, asus m.2 hyper drive with wd black 850 1tb and and (temp) asus 980 ti running windows 7 ultimate.
 
all under the auspicious eye of Mitth'raw'nuruodo; grand admiral thrawn as he is commonly known as.

    as operation code name hope slowly grinds on, the mail has delivered some sunshine. unfortunately the 480mm radiator may have gone missing in transit, the mb block to go with the cpu block is here. i definitely want to water cool the w3690 but im not truly sold on the mb block. the stock cooling using the noctua air cooler with 2x92mm and a 40mmx10 on the northbridge has the cpu temp at 60C and NB at 39C running 1.35V at 4.2 and the ram at 2000+. and the stock setup looks real good, i especially like the pulsating rog logo.
     
    now i wait on the rad to arrive, possibly there is merely a delay clearing the customs, and look into pump rez and a case or wall mount. plus i will need some cooling for the the vrm. onwards!

    well i got me a case for the build, if you can call this dirty D a case. while it doesnt have vesa mounting points at the back, the io and pcie facing up is exactly what i want. a quick measurement at the bottom and it appears the 480mm radiator could fit, and that rad which ive been waiting on has now cleared customs and should be here any day.

    i got the dirty d all disassembled, cleaned and put back together. other than a hole bunch of paint chips its in great shape. it missing i think 2 of the 4 120mm fan brackets, the hdd caddies and the leather tool pouch with tools, somewhat disappointing, i did ask the guy about the tools when i picked it up.
     
    the sun was out and i thought some pics of lost lenore and of what may have been for the e760/780ti kp combo. maybe a supernova 1300 p+ in the empty spot.... anyways due to the chipping and the red the paint is coming off, so pics now.

    the 480mm rad has arrived intact and it does fit at the bottom of the frame, and i can access the sata at the bottom but that means only blower length cards will fit. i did lay the rad in place prior to disassembling the frame and its fits. right now its centred and perfectly aligns to four screw holes on the two fan brackets (im going to add a third bracket). it may line up there with the frame back on, but the battery bracket could collide and it may have to slide over to the right, so the type of fittings at the end will be critical. 
    the five frame pieces are out being sand blasted and powder coated, and when they return i can decide if i will use this rad at the bottom. if so that means none of my 980ti will fit, so i will have to get something that can fit and be useful, i dont plan on watercooling the gpus(s) but i dont know much until the rad is in place. and i dont have a solution for water cooling the mb mosfets yet. or a pump/reservoir.

    since i am definitely going to put a 40mm rad at the bottom of the case, 360 or 420 if the 480 doesnt fit, i went ahead and got a blower card. while it is not a 980ti this card is definitely useful. it was just listed locally yesterday afternoon, i was the second reply but number one didnt show and by 12 bells it was in my hands and running green. cards in great shape and the serial sticker is still intact.
    the only "issue" is that ive been wanting the galactic empire version of this card, so i (may) be on the lookout for one. and i better get a big enough psu. and if add a second blower i would dump the huge rog dual m2 and go with a more discreet single m2.

    i was able to acquire the empire card, it looks very menacing and the red light is most empire/sith like. still waiting on the frames powder coating to be completed, expecting it today. then i can figure out the movement of the water, and i will probably initially install the cpu cooler until i find a solution for the rest of the mb.

    powder coating is all complete and it turned out great. there is a marbled texture and a chameleon colour shift with shimmers of red and gold, its palleon fire by prismatic powders. and it seems the 480mm rad fits on the psu side and has room to move left dependent on the type of fitting used on the right. so now i can buy some hose and fittings and some pump reservoir thingy.

    thanks all, i too am pleased with the change in look. i got the motherboard in with the new gpus, a temporary psu and fresh windows 10 install and its all good. of course after windows installed the drivers win10 told me that connecting an sli bridge will improve performance... but i tried 2 of my 4-slot hb bridges and neither of them clear the fake power buttons on the gpus. i may have to look about in some boxes for a long enough ribbon style type, but i doubt i will even use sli. i still need to find connectors for the rad that will fit, but its not looking too good. there is only about 1cm of space from one of the outlets to the frame. the top pic was in the semi dark no flash, i love how the frame reflects the colours.

    problem solved, easy solution. since i am not using the cd drive bay or the front panel assembly that mount on the right side on the back of the baseplate, the open section in the frame that is needed for access to them is not. i simply rotated the end section 180 and its clear sailing. i can run the hoses just outside of the frame if needed.

    i looked about for some period specific vrm coolers but didn't find any for sale, so i ordered two heatkiller sw-x 60 which appear to be correct in width and length, just need holes drilled for mounting. i also ordered a pump/resovoir combo, so now its down to getting fittings, hose, flow meter and another d frame specific 120mm fan bracket. and a classy looking power supply.

    pump/resovoir arrived and it has some nice rgb, i will need to make some brackets to use the existing mounting points of the base plate. the vrm cooling is going to need some work to fit, the r2e mb mounting points are off centre and may be at the linits.
    so now it seems just fittings and hoses are needed to get it running. and another stock in win 120mm fan bracket (good luck finding that). and id would like a new chrome look 1000w psu too, but havnt found anything yet.

    X58 and X79 were the last "real PCs" in my opinion. QSLI, Crossfire, Full body water cooling was a lot of fun.
    Things are simple and easy now.

    yeah these old systems have a lot of self fun in them, thinigs for me started to go down hill when they took the jumpers of the ad in cards and let the computer assign the dmas and irqs.
