Default Mountain Mods Extended Ascension - 4way SLI GTX580 + 3930K + Asus R4E rebuild

Hi all,

I didnt bother posting any updates on my last build, but I did just about get it all finished over christmas. The replacement RMA 990X for my X58 UD9 build was degrading too and no longer stable so I decided to grab an Asus Rampage IV Extreme and 3930K CPU to upgrade as it was about the same price as a replacement 990X. (thats if you can even find them now!)

I will be re-using everything else in my system including the 4 Way GTX580's all the water blocks and the Corsair Ram for now.

In addition I will be using the new VGA hotwire feature to voltage mod the cores on all 4 GTX580. I will probably upgrade the Ram to a 4x8GB kit and get the koolance Rampage IV motherboard water block in the future too.

I'll update the thread with a full list of the components and photos when I get started in the next couple days.
Wish me luck!!
