It will be a very fast WIP since it's already at the end of the leak test ;)

Hi!

I've finished the upgrade a few days ago I just didn't have the time to post the pictures before


Front panel completed....a little Daz case badge never hurts



The motherboard tray prepped to receive the GPU's



Before and after waterblocks installation. Some people don't like swiftech blocks but I find them neat and discrete






Bridge installed



Even my DVI connectors decided to embrace the red, white and black ROG/Radeon theme



Fully loaded motherboard



View of the inside....TIGHT!!!!!



Completed system






Night shot not really easy to shoot but it's not important anyway




That's all folks!!!

Thanks guys!

The Monsoon res itself is well built and I have nothing bad to say about it. But this was my first bay reservoir and I must say that it will probably be my last over tube reservoir. It's not monsoon just the mechanics around a bay res that makes it a PITA to bleed compare to a tube res.

Of course this is my own opinion and everyone is entitled to it's own opinion


The Xigmatek is in this rig only because I already had it but I always been disapointed by it from the start because of the way they did the connectors. On the component you have 2 USB3.0 connectors BUT only one of them is controlled by the 19-pins internal motherboard connector because Xigmatek decided to use the other "controllable" USB3.0 port to handle the multi-card reader?!?!? so they put a standard type A USB3.0 connector to control the second USB3.0 connector. So you have to route this stupid cable to the rear IO panel. What were they thinking!!! Since I didn't wanted to route this ridiculous cable to the rear panel I only plug the 19-pins. Now I just have to remember which one of the 2 connectors to use


As for the GPU power it folds like a beast now...3 7970 gives me double the PPD of the previous 4 Nvidia 5-series I had.
