    Hey guy's. Just finished my new build. Pretty happy with it aside from wanting to change the 8pin GPU cables. See my system spec for parts. Will try and take some better pics in daylight tomorrow.
    Glad to finally have a powerful PC again. Cheers :)

    A small big upgrade. Since my 2TB Samsung harddrive failed, I replaced it with a 2TB WD Black, but its somehow making the whole pc fibrate like crazy and its driving me nuts.

    So, new year resolutions number 1: SSD everything.

    I just got this second hand, unused (Samsung Magician is showing no more then 5 powerups) Samsung EVO 2TB unit for 130 euro's under retail pricing. On the right hand side my 250GB EVO drive which holds Windows. On the left the 2TB EVO drive for all my main storage, I'm currently transfering everything from the WD Black to this. A 500GB EVO has been ordered to replace the tired old Spinpoint F3 that now holds my Program Files folder and all the game installation folders.



    And here is a uptodate picture of the whole thing with the sidepanels of

    Awesome rigs, so I went backwards and am now on air and not water as the maintenance and my case size (old was a Core X9) was massive and I realized if we had to evacuate due to a fire ect. I (or family member) was never gonna get the pc down the stairs alone. I can now pick my system up again since it's in a Fractal Define R5 (still weighs a lot) which in terms of build quality is leagues above the Core X9 and my old Switch 810 in my opinion. Still silent on an NH-D15 and my temps are higher sure but this pc is mostly just for work and feeds a projector now.

    @ rvcjew

    I just took a look at the Thermaltake (Core X9) case. I was impressed. Also it's fairly priced.
    A bit big but well designed.
    Any thing with that many hard drives is going to get hefty.
    I agree ssd's are the only way to go. I got 8 of them. You can never have to many of them.
    NH-D15 is a excellent choice for air cooling. It appears to snuggle close to the ram.
    In my wondering over the internet I found the NH-D15 beats a lot of AIO water cooling.

    Just my thoughts.

    It's a beast to be sure can hold many rads, I have found out though during the build with the D15 my mobo is warped lol and hence I see a new one in my future also to fit my gpu in slot one I had to slightly bend the D15 (that is an issue with my mobo and not the heatsink), still works fine though but the warping makes it not contact perfect apparently it has been like this for a while and my water setup was working wonders and I did not know. But like I said before pc does not do much heavy lifting now and all the pitfalls of the warping is fine for now. I think I tweaked it about two water blocks ago so years ago.

    Found pics I have of how on this board it slightly covers the first slot and my ram clearance. Heatsink is massive.

    My systems use home made water cooling with hard tubing.
    Not only do they run cool but I can position things where I want them so it doesn't stop me from getting to things; like the ram if need be.
    My two computers are in (My System Specs). Neither of them is a tuck under your arm and carry about.

    I had a Asus X58 motherboard that was very sensitive to the tightness of the water block screw tightness. If I tighten them to much I would loose the ram close to the cpu. It took me a while to figure out that problem.

    I also don't walk well but I'm getting better. Only have to use a cane on bad days. My lady friend caries my groceries from the car to the kitchen and she is 5' 1" and about 110 pounds. I can do one trip from the car and carry things to the kitchen but that is it. She makes the other 3 or 4 trips.
    This damn getting old is hard work.
    I waiting for some one to carry my Phanteks Premo to the work bench so I can do some work on it.

    If the house caught fire, I would grab my Gentlemen Jack and my cat and go to the street.

    My last build.
