First off, awesome build so far DT. Between you and 3.0 you have some amazing tech on the go there.

One thing to note, if you want to add additional cooling to your HAF that is more stylish, CM has a bay adaptor that I use with a high flow fan that gives the extra air where I need it. Many companies have them out there now to add additional HDD's , I just use them to put extra fans and such inside.

Can't wait to see the net result,

-ST

Thanks for the input ST! In fact, if you look closely at the pictures of BOSServer earlier in the thread, you'll see I used one of those CM bay adapters in it.

Just a quick little update to say that it looks like I will, in fact, be adding one final machine to the farm. It will be called Quicksilver.

No details as of yet, as I want to build up the anticipation, the suspense, the excitement! Suffice to say, Quicksilver will be absolutely ridiculous.

Yeah I had to look real close but I see that you are, which is cool. I find they come in really handy for adding that little bit of extra airflow. Nice to see the builds, keep it up mate!

Thanks again ST!

A couple small updates to report...

First of all, I completed the P-Delta and P-Epsilon GPU folding builds. As I mentioned earlier, I wasn't planning to build any more dedicated GPU folding rigs, but since these can be located in a place where I am not responsible for the hydro bill, and since I already had all the hardware, I figured I might as well take advantage of the opportunity. So here they are - not terribly exciting, but I am a fan of the H70's going into them. It means that I can keep my QX9650 at 4.0 and my i7 860 at 3.8 cool without any of my usual 3k RPM Scythe Ultra Kazes!





Also - some news regarding Shoebox. My orange Xiggy fans (with white LEDs) arrived yesterday:



You might recall that the colour scheme for Shoebox is going to be orange, white and black. Since the stock fans in the Elysium are black with white LEDs, I figured I needed something to spruce it up a bit more than that, which is why you see what you see here. The arrival of these fans is significant because it means that building can begin. I have *basically* all the parts I need. I'm still missing 2 5mm orange LEDs, which I forgot to include in my last order from Dazmode. So I'll have to grab those at some point, but there's no reason why they would have to hold up the build. I'm also undecided on whether I want to get sleeved cable extensions. Once I have some pictures to share, I might have to ask for you, the noble reader, to help me decide.

This is actually an exciting moment in the work log because all of the boring stuff has been taken care of. All that remains is Shoebox, Suite300 and the mysterious Quicksilver, and each one of those should be pretty interesting builds. So, since it's been a while, I leave you with this...

I have a busy weekend of work ahead of me - oh joy, oh bliss - but I'm hoping to at least get started on Shoebox tomorrow night. But before I do, I just wanted to share a couple more photos of the Xigmatek Elysium to show just how big this case really is...



Okay, so here it is in relation to a fairly standard mid-ATX tower case, the Antec 200. Obviously the picture speaks for itself:



And it even outbiggens the otherwise gargantuan ATCS 840 full tower, although the two are of roughly comparable size:



Anyway, just thought I'd share that. Also thought I'd share a quick update on the no-longer-mysterious Quicksilver as parts start to arrive...
