My System Specs

Default Project: Frag'n'Fold and Jr.

I am slowly embarking on these next two builds which will probably evolve a bit during the course of the builds.

So far Frag'n'Fold looks something like this:

Quote:
Rig 1:
MM U2-UFO Horizon Duality Front Anodized Black
EVGA X58 Classified
3xSLI GTX 280
i7 920 D0
6GB Crucial DDR3 D9JNL
2 Intel X25-M 80 GB
1 WD Caviar 500GB
PSU TBD
Windows Vista Ultimate 64x (Until all the drivers come for 7)

Watercooling:
3 MCP 355 w/ XSPC Res tops
HK 3.0 Copper
Koolance VID-428
Bitspower Black Freezer EIX58NSC for EVGA X58 Classified
Bitspower Black Freezer MOS EI58DP II - for EVGA Classified
Bitspower 3/8"-5/8" Compression fittings
A bunch of 45 and 90 degree BP fittings
2 XSPC RX360
1 XSPC RX240
Primochill LRT Red

Rig 2:
MM H2GO
Gigabyte GA-X58-UD4P
2xSLI GTX 260
i7 920 C0
6 GB Crucial DDR3 D9JNL
HDD TBD
Corsair 1000HX
Windows 7 RC1

Watercooling:
2 DD Tieton GTX 260/280 blocks (1 Nickel, 1 Copper)
Rest TBD
This is all I've got for now. I started a bit of work tonight, but it will be slow going with time restrictions (seems like there's always something on in the summer )

Some gratuitous GPU pr0n


My dream case:










Now for a bit of cable work. I think I ordered the wrong size of shrink wrap for some of what I'm doing, so I'll probably order some more this week and do other stuff until I get it and can continue with the other rads...





Tucked away for now...those fans are ready to go.

Looking good zlojack! Thats going to be one awsome build.. RRR would like it ;)

Where did you order your heatshrink from? I just bought a bunch of sleeving from mdcp but forgot to buy white heatshrink.. and I don't really want to order just heatshrink from them..

I usually get my heatshrink from Sidewinder or Performance-PCs

As for RRR liking it...he might not agree with my choice of rads or GPU blocks, but he'd like the case and CPU blocks

Well, I am still waiting for some new sleeving I ordered from CableOrganizer.com to arrive so I can move forward.

It's really hard to see all these boxes full of goodness sitting here and not work on them!
