Maybe when the prices go down a bit more for ECC Reg. DDR2, lol. I think 8Gigs will be more than enough for the near future.

Well, you going to work Left to Right, or Right to left putting little Enzo HS's on the Mofests?
That would be a lot of copper...


Nice Board, that is a scary build.

Oops, I totally mis-read your post ST, sorry. For the mosfets... I'm not sure yet. I may try getting some kind of Thermalright cooler on them as well, probably using sticky tape/TIM, since I dont think the mounting holes (if any - its not in front of me now ) are standard, but we'll see...

Default 25% Power!

Muahahahah! 4 hours later....

Case modding:



Test fit w/ Power supply:


Clearance... near misses...




Why use stock motherboard cooling?




Had to use a "different" method for mounting the first HR-05, The easy-to-turn standoff/nut things actually HIT the GTX295... preventing it from seating. Therefore...




All parts installed for a 25% test....




Let there be 25% power!!!



Sorry for my lack of better commentary, super tired now (about to pass out).

Waiting on (before going to 50% or 100%):
- a certain someone (or anyone for that matter) to reply to his PMs about the second Freezone Elite
- have to measure the system with both freezones to determine the tubing length, will probably have to use angled barbs on the both the back blocks (CPU3 and CPU4)
- Install hard drives
- ........
-Profit?
-Install windows!
-Install the last 3 CPUs (possibly replace 1000w PSU with a 1200w, on the fence about that one still...)
- Install the Coolit modified Freezone Elites
-Wiring
- 100% POWA!!!

Looking AWESOME so far! Only one comment, that bottom HR-05 looks to be blocking the bottom x16 slot, do you have any plans or ideas to deal with it, if you ever decided to go full out Quad-SLi?
