That's what I run, a Supermicro X8DAi dual 1366 socket. ppd is nowhere near in the same class, since the X8DAi does not allow overclocking. That's what makes the SR2 so special.

Ah... gotcha. Kinda obvious now I think about it. Thanks for the response!

I would like to have that sleeving skill. I am sure I would not be patient enough. altough the sleeving on my AX is pretty nice, but never as good as yours.

Edit: Awesome job with the PSU sleeving btw
I don't be running any GPU clients. A good SMP rig can pull way more than any GPU-based folding rig could do.

All it takes is a bit of practice and patience.

I did some fans today. I really hate doing multiple fans for radiators. Putting three fans on to a single connector is infuriating.

What a gorgeous sleeve job!.. Man if I were to have twice as much as patience as you, my sleeving would still be no where close to you..

Oh well, nice build.. :)

I Think I would like to try the Daisy chain fan sleeving. When you put the 3 fans in one connector, is there any tricks I should be aware of ?

Lowfat, have you ever tried to "stretch" the shrink a little bit so it can be put onto the 3pin fan connector?
