I've got a worklog in the Mod Rigs Section Cosmos SR-X- Factor but thought it might be worthy of a post in here as i know not everyone frequents both so my apologies if it offends anyone
Well not exactly how i’d envisioned things happening but a few initial teething problems with the BIOS and a bank holiday to contend with meant the chassis painting was delayed and with Computex kicking off in two days, i decided to complete the build so at least i could grab some pictures of the fully working system and luckily all the parts that are getting painted can be easily removed in the coming week or so and paint work carried out.
 
I just wish i had better photographic skills as i haven’t done this thing justice because in real life it looks absolutely stunning even though i say so myself..........i honestly don’t think there is one aspect i’m unhappy with and the X logo on the front looks amazing.
 
Anyway, a few finished (until its painted) photos and spec....

    Great build, plans on adding a 3rd 680 HC?

    the work you do is very clean and well done but your sr2 or this one are not so unique .
    by the way i think that one important fan is missing : for the chipsets under the radiator . the right position should be in the middle of  the sata on the board and the vga power plug cables
     

     
    something like 45 * relative to the mainboard

    Fantastic build, only thing (just for my taste) is the giant X with the small evga sticker, kind of doesn't "fit" in there...
     
    I have an SR-2 and I already knew that it fit in cosmos II, however I wanna ask you if there are standoffs in all the right places or are there some missing? Any caveats?
     
    Thanks!

    That looks simply STUNNING.  Looks to me like all you need now is a custom SRX chipset waterblock.  Clear plastic w/red LED's and Black Delrin top, to match your waterblocks. 
     
    Let me know if you want to make that happen ;)

      Maybe it'd cool some components but it'd look bad IMO, a fan just in the middle.... nah!

    if a cheap vga prevents you from using such a mainboard....even asus is not for you ...
    here you have one , with $15 that should work for updating bios

    you see all tubes , he has a dual loop system
    with one radiator up to the top and the second is near psu
    the reservoir connect the 2 loops .

    Very nice rig. Very clean and tidy. Aesthetics are excellent. Although the SR-X is not my choice of dual CPU boards.
     
    Any chance in seeing what the real hard work looks like - the cabling on the other side panel? Happy to comment on that.

    I like the rig ... but I have a question regarding the Video Cards?
     
    do you really see a performance gain using both bridges vrs the single?

    That's just for looks. 2-way SLI only requires one bridge, so the other will not even be used.

    Well the newly installed [URL="http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=120-PG-1500-XR&family=Power Supplies&sw=23"]EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified Power Supply[/URL] finishes this mod off perfectly and i’ve got to say, i think this is as close to perfection i will ever get.
     
    Yes there were a couple of issues with the original BIOS on the SR-X board which were quickly ironed out but since then i’ve never looked back and its been rock solid ever since.
     
    Simply put, there is absolutely nothing i would change with this system which is probably a first for me.........oh wait, yeah i’d add another couple of 680’s for good measure or swap them out for a couple of 690’s but apart from that, this is as good as it gets for me.

    I got the new Kingston HyperX Beast for this rig today so will be getting that fitted as soon as i get a minute.

    They sent me 3 x 32GB kits so will have a total of 96GB to play with which should be plenty and it looks rather nice too 






     
    - bit dusty in there at present but its the first time its been opened since last year

    Thanks, i was previously using 48GB of Kingston’s HyperX Red Memory so have basically doubled the capacity.

    There was talk of swapping out the 680's for a couple of 690 Hydro Copper a while back but never got it sorted so maybe another 680 could be an option.
